Celebrate with me: the blog has been given a fresh shot in the arm. After a two month hiatus — the longest break ever in its 3 year history — I am settled (marginally) at Columbia University, pursuing a one-year’s Master’s program in journalism. Some of you would remember the dilemma I had choosing between Northwestern and Columbia. Now there’s no turning back.
School’s been really busy, with some days I’m out for more than 12 hours, desperately trying to talk to people and finding stories for future use. To make things worse, light renovations messed up the area outside my dorm room when I moved in. But thankfully it’s just been cleared up. (I’ll try to get some photos up of my room soon!)
It’s hard to encapsulate my month in Singapore and the few weeks I’ve been here in New York City, ever since leaving my college days in Michigan behind. For a good while I considered stopping writing, but on occasion I’d get the urge to voice an opinion on an issue or event. That’s when I realized I missed having the online presence.
Give me some time to get my mental and literary bearings right, and in return I’ll try to put in decent and regular posts for all to read. Anyone, feel free to leave comments on the new layout or any interesting anecdotes of your life you’d like to share with everyone =)
