I'm sailing off...

It's that time of the semester again, I'm afraid.

Since my exam schedule has been released, I feel that I should take a breather from blogging to focus on the revision. It's better that way because in the current mental state of mine, I'm more fragile than I expected (especially after the unexpected amount of mental harm and sudden shock).

It doesn't help that my exams are rather squashed this semester. Two papers in two days! I don't know whether to be thankful that my winter break will start early or cringe because I'll be swimming in more stress.

There is a chance that my decisions to take Australian Constitutional Law, Equity and Criminal Law together have thrown undesired stress on me. My body is physically struggling to cope with it. I almost threw out the contents of my breakfast before my Week 10 Equity lecture - and it was something that I've been taking all along in the morning: cappuccino with oats and toast. A quick search on Google suggested that it is the work of stress and/or anxiety.

I used to have a voracious appetite for food - to the point where I can accompany my college friend for two consecutive lunch hangouts, but not now. I can't even finish a proper meal without someone sharing it with me. If you compare what I have for lunch now and during the CPU days, you'll be surprised. On a good day, lunch consists of pulled tea and a slice of cake. On a bad day, it's just Vietnamese cold roll from the Hub.

And no, I'm not trying to lose weight.

With God's help and loads of revision coupled with prayers, I'd love to visit the beach in Glenelg or Henley during the winter break and enjoy the beautiful scenery that it offers. I need a change of environment to clear the congested mind.

In addition, there are some personal matters that require my due diligence - as if I don't already have enough on my plate, lol.

  2. all the best with the revision ... hopefully you'll get some rejuvenating breaks in between ... constitutional law sounds like a tough nut!

    1. Thanks, Sean. =) It is indeed a tough nut to crack - and everyone's been saying that Equity is easier (because of the knowledge garnered in Contracts).

  3. Take good care. I know it's not an easy path but it is rewarding at the end of the day. Good luck.

    1. Thanks, Yee Ling. I'll try to take good care of myself. I'm consoling myself with the fact that I've a movie date waiting for me if/when I score for the exams. =)
