The past month has been one of the craziest times in my life… and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. Its amazing how much can happen in a month; sometimes it feels like time runs by too quickly. This past month I’ve been so busy and had so much fun, that I’m finally starting to realize how much I really love my life.
All this has been brought about by my admission to NUS. I’d applied to a very limited number of colleges and NUS had always been my top priority. Maybe it was because I had applied for it really early or maybe it was because I didn’t want to get my hopes up too high, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I’d decided that I wasn’t getting in. I was so convinced that when the offer letter finally came, I was momentarily stunned.
Momentarily. Then came the realization that I was going abroad to study. One word popped into my head.
One month into my stay at NUS, and I still feel the same way. People back home keep asking me, “How’s NUS?”. And I always answer in superlatives. Brilliant. Amazing. Wonderful. Too cool!! And I’m glad its that way. I wrote this not too long ago, and I’m glad now that things worked out just the way I wanted them to. Better, actually.
Credit goes to everyone I’ve come to know here at NUS. The people I like, the people I don’t like…everyone. They’ve made the transition easy, but most importantly, they’ve made it fun. And I couldn’t ask for more.
Here’s to a happy four years at NUS. Cheers!
