A Quick Reflection

The semester’s finally coming to an end and as I shamelessly disappear into my textbooks, I thought to myself, wow, what a semester!

A year ago, I decided to take one semester off to do an internship at a private equity fund. Then I went to the States for a semester. Honestly, I was kinda worried I wouldn’t be able to adjust back to school life. Then school started, the deadlines came, but for the first time, I didn’t really feel overwhelmed. OK, there was the 1 week where I felt like I was severely lacking sleep, but other than that, it was surprisingly manageable! Maybe it’s some final year mojo that I’ve got that I don’t know I have. Hahaha.

On another note, I’m proud to say that I’ve been blogging consistently for close to 3 months now! I’ve never been much of a writer – my blogs usually die very quickly. But anyhow, this survived. I guess I just gained “writing enlightenment” or something, where I’m constantly thinking of what to write – what’s happening in my life that’s worth sharing (sadly my life is very boring). I’ve also been following a few blogs that share tips on writing/blogging, so occasionally that serves as inspiration to write. And of course, having friends who blog too, helps.

So to those who haven’t blogged before (or have given up blogging), give it a shot (again)! It might feel weird at first to be narrating to no one, but I assure you, it’ll be so much fun once you get started 🙂


Kill Procrastination

I came across this short story:

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. Its name is time. Every morning, it credits us with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow”. You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success. The clock is running. Make the most of today.

The question is HOW? KILL PROCRASTINATION!!! Hahaha. But that said, there’s a time for everything. There’s a time to be determined and a time to be completely lazy. There’s a time for seriousness and a time to goof off. Whatever it is, now’s the time for me to apply for a job. Sam, please put some mojo in your coffee tomorrow morning and start sending out your resume. Lol


Oh Mojo, Mojo, wherefore art thou Mojo?

I seem to have lost my mojo and zest and whimsy and whatever-else-there-is. It sucks, and I’m sure even for my friends around me cos I barely find the energy/need to speak unless necessary. Okay, occasionally I still crack myself up with a joke or two, but there’s still an unexplained general downcast in my outlook on life.


Random thought, if I get a pet cat I shall name it Mojo. Then I can never lose it plus my Mojo can procreate. HAHAHAHAHA
