Hi guys, I guess I'm back (briefly) from the unannounced short break I decided to take. This is just a really quiet comeback. For those who're still checking this space, I am extremely grateful for your loyalty. It does feel a little weird to be writing again, after being liberated from this space for awhile. I've been fine-tuned to pen academic research papers, hence I might sound a little distant. Adjusting the writing appeal from factual to emotional feels a little unfamiliar right now, I'm getting rusty haha.

School was rough. If you hadn't known, I'm currently doing University of Buffalo's Bachelor Degree in Mass Communications in SIM. Many gave off the impression that breezing through SIM is very much possible because it's easy but in all seriousness, no. I honestly don't think it is anything like what is stereotyped, well, at least not for my course. With the experience from prior tertiary education in Ngee Ann poly, I still don't think it's thaaat easy. Or maybe I'm just hard on myself. I want to do well. School weighs a significant lot of importance than many other things in my life.

School break started on the 14th and the new semester will begin on the 25th. That's.... in 2 days time. I am not looking forward it at all. The stress accumulated from previous semester hasn't dissolved entirely. I'm only half-charged and yet, I've to go at it again (?!)

This break, I went back to Bangkok (my favourite escapade) again. This time, with Yi Ming, someone I'd (maybe soon) introduce to you guys. And did a lot catching up with precious friends over the past few days since my return. It is true what they say, time gap don't exist between true friends. Naturally, you pick up where you left off.

Alright, I shall stop here now. I'm still getting used to this; connecting to you guys all over again. Gonna get some rest and have a blast at Shamo's birthday party tmr! Look forward to my insta posts yeh, the employment of my least awkward medium heh heh.

I sincerely hope you guys have been well while I was away.


  1. Don't feel bad cause i totally understand your plight as a uni student. Work hard but be lenient to yourself at the same time! Andddddd i hope YOU have been well too when you've been away :)

  4. So glad to see you back on this platform! :) All the best for your studies.

  5. Hey Irina, just wanted to let you know that please don't ever feel pressurized to blog or obliged to share anything with us :) School is definitely tough and tiring.. but hang in there!!!

  6. OMG you are back! I was kinda sad when I saw your blog no longer available for read or you've deleted, but all's good now, I'm happy haha. School is confirm stress and tiring but don't be too hard on yourself. Just do what you should and do the best you can. You'll do well, be confident. Update the space if you have the time, if not just wait until you have the time. Don't lock the space anymore because I believe your followers (and myself) would hope that your blog is still around for read even no updates for the time being.

    Take care, Irina.
