Hello everyone, how is it going? I had wanted to write this for a while now, but I have been pushing it back. As most of you should know, it’s been almost two months since I started university, and honestly, I’m not doing too well.

I just completed some of my mid-term papers, and I am with the general consensus with all of my peers, and admit that they were tough. But they weren’t that tough. I did my revision on the topics covered, and everything that I covered came out.  But. I couldn’t score. My mind blanked at almost all the crucial moments. Gibberish answers. Careless mistakes everywhere. I could have done better, but I didn’t. It makes me feel that all the hard work I had been putting in was just wasted. Sigh.

Studying isn’t fun. And it’s even less fun when all your studies do not pay off. But I have no choice but to keep studying. I mean, what else can a typical Singaporean university student, who had constantly studied for 12 years prior to this, do?

So, I’m sorry to tell you all of you this, but I most probably won’t be translating for now. At the very least, until semester break.  I just can’t put my mind into translating when studies are weighing in on me. I seek your understanding!
