Back to School..

Few months ago, I decided to do my degree.

It’s a challenge to work full time and study part-time.

Quite often, I find myself asking.. “Where did the time go?”

Sleeping in and watching animae/reality tv are luxuries now.. 🙂

This evening, I’m taking a well deserved break, cos I had an assessment yesterday.

After assessment, Blueberry and I went to Johor Bahru for shopping.

We had korean barbarque to celebrate.

(I knew I passed, but I wasn’t sure if I did well).

While waiting for our dinner… The paper place-mats to frame the utensils, making the setting look neat and tidy. Do you like to read the words on the paper places?

Today, the results of the assessment were released.

I got 78/100! :O

WHAT!?!

It took me awhile to accept the good report. I teared when the reality sank in.

During poly days, skills assessments were my nemesis.. I lost count of the number of times I failed, and had to re-sit for assessments.. In 3 years of school, I only passed 3 assessments.

When I learnt there was a module requiring skill assessments, I felt chills down my spine.. Thankfully, a colleague turned friend also enrolled for the program, and her presence encouraged me to press on.

I’m glad to live to see this day.. It’s encouraging to see something positive replace those bad memories. God is good.

Blueberry said I got a B grade.

For lunch, I treated myself to a burger.. cos B is for burger. Hahaha.

After work, I swung by the supermarket and bought a bottle of beer.

.. B is for beer.. and we shall toast to our blessings.

The celebration continues. 🙂

A night of celebration..

Blueberry was presented an award from his alma mater for his contribution to the alumni.

We went District 10 for a celebration last Sunday.

Jamón serrano, cheese platter and prosecco night.

The place was closing in an hour, so we got (almost) the entire section to ourselves.

After finishing our drink, we had another round of beer. I was so full.. but my tummy was contented.

It was a nice celebration for us. 🙂

Congrats, Blueberry! I’m so proud of you. 😀
