the one that got away
I'm blogging for the first time in the dead of afternoon. At least I think it's the first time that I'm posting in the midday.
I suppose one of the main reasons I'm blogging now is because I'll be too lazy and preoccupied with my other stuff like reading up on my Marketing notes and assignments, writing up some essay thing for the scholarship application and rearranging my wardrobe and straightening out my room when everyone departed the house last night. I forgot to mention that our neighbourhood experienced a blackout for about an hour plus last night as well and the relatives had to pack their stuff in the dark with the aid of flashlights and the night light as well. I suppose it wasn't the best ending to the family reunion/gathering this CNY but it was interesting. Thank goodness the lights came back on as I was sweating bullets already without the air-conditioning.

I was reading the newspaper today and I came across this article where this guy was describing his experience of studying at the university in Osaka, Japan. All expenses paid of course considering he's sent there based on scholarship. This sort of rekindled my fantasy/dream of studying there. In Japan I mean but in Kyoto. I've always loved the idea of studying in Japan and also learning stuff in their language. Sure, the standard's exceptionally and maybe ridiculously high there that students succumb to the pressure of exams and some even commit suicide but that's where all the experience comes in, I suppose. Not the suicide part of course. But there's also the looming thought of soaring fees and living expenses to think of. And Japan is notoriously infamous for its luxurious and extensively high cost of living. Taking into the account that you're a student hardly makes Japan the "ideal" place for any parents' child to be sent there. The language barrier is good point to think about as well. Though I have been sort of picking up a bit of Japanese here and there by watching all those anime. I guess watching the idiot box does pay off a little. Not in a big way but still good enough. But it would certainly be nice to go there. And applying for it wouldn't hurt at all, I suppose. Now if only I knew where to start.

So, yes. I think it's high time for me to seriously indulge and return to studying if I want to be able to make it to a reputable and good Aussie Uni by next year. It's not as easy it may seem at first as I've discovered a little too late. Maybe not too late if I start now. Sigh. I'm still waiting for my "fantasized" US scholarship invitation so that I'll be whisked away from the mundane life that is here. A Japan scholarship isn't too bad either.
This is silly talking like I could simply pick any scholarship from the bin as it's handed to me on a silver platter. Back to reality. I need a good jolt or shock to bring me back to the low lands.
