School (technically) done.
Hm. I guess I’m just realizing the fact that one year has passed since I left Stony Brook. Looking back now, I can’t help but laugh at my own immaturity. My, what a long way I’ve come. A completely different direction in life only to find myself standing once again appalled on how fast time passes by. Sooner or later, I will graduating from this college and on to a university. I keep telling myself that 4 years is nothing compared the amount of years I have left in my life but I can’t help but shiver at the thought of another year here. I found out that if I don’t have certain changes to my lifestyle within a year, I get bored. Very bored. So here’s what I’m thinking for the upcoming year.
1. I want to find a paid internship that will replace my job at the financial aid office.
2. I wish to spend more time marketing for my school. Hopefully Nih will be ready by next month.
3. Give the presentation to my highschool. Either this year or the next.
4. Join toastmasters :D
5. I’m contemplating on what to do for 6 months. Hm….
6. TEDx at NCC.
7. Speech Club and Asian Club Vice President. Maybe film club too?
I have to say, I’m a little excited to do my application again. The last time I applied there was because my parents told me too. LOL. How banal. But now, perhaps I can show them that I actually have a reason for going there. Life right now seems….exciting. Exhilarating. I’ve never knew how much control one can have over his or her life.
I can’t see myself as 21 because when I look at the majority of my age group, they’re all talking about their swag, girls, parties, school, etc. It’s all very boring to say the least. I can understand engineers and medical practitioners being so driven in their field. Because they want to makesomething. Not an experience but something tangible or usable that will influence something bigger than themselves.
I like making stuff. Whether it’s a presentation or a tumblr post. These projects are what keep me sane and not lose my focus. My girlfriend tells me that once I have a task or a project, I focus on only that and nothing else. Which is bad thing because I forget to text her back sometimes. Terrible Abe. Terrible. But I am improving :D. Or at least I like to think so.
I hope I did well with my grades. I’m like on the borderline of B+/A- for all my classes except one. The anticipation is killing me.
