When it’s time for learning; you learn. Me, I go on holiday (Part 3)

If you’ve been following us for some time now, you’d know this series and I thought it was high time to add to it! (links at the bottom) Yes, I was away…again…during uni time…I know it’s becoming a problem now. I can’t believe I haven’t been kicked out already due to low attendance…This time around I decided to travel to and visit our friends in the east, well granted it was my first time going so I didn’t really have friends yet but I have tons now!

I went to what was named ‘the world’s most expensive city to live’ any ideas…

Fine, I’ll tell you: SINGAPORE! TBH I really didn’t know much about it when I decided to go the majority of last year and the beginning of this year there, I did tons of research but in all truth, nothing could have prepared me for my adventure there. I had only a few months to prepare which for me, wasn’t enough time but boy was it fun planning everything!

Ally: 🤦🏽‍♀️ Guurrlll!!! We both know you weren’t there for a holiday! Cause if you were, we need to talk about what your idea of a holiday is! I wouldn’t call “Placement Year” a holiday…. especially when it is a study abroad programme! 😂 If anyone was holidaying this academic year it was me!! 😂😂😂

Uggggh fine, Ally couldn’t even allow me to have a little fun with you guys. (eyes up emoji) If you must know, I wasn’t in Singapore on holiday, I was there because I was on

PLACEMENT

Yes, that’s right folks, I did my placement year at Singapore Management University as part of my Study Abroad programme and it’s probably one of the best decisions of my life so far!

As the only student from my university, I pretty much had to do everything myself, which sucked sometimes but ultimately made me learn so much both in and outside the classroom.
  • The HEAT was almost too hot to handle when I arrived in August (missing 2 weeks of classes already (wink))! I Survived!
  •  The workload was insane, but I got a handle on it after my first term.
  • Most of the stereotypes I had (don’t judge) were very true, I can say this with confidence as I experienced them first hand. #asianstudents
  • FOOD WAS AMAZING AND NO ONE CAN TELL ME OTHERWISE!

 

My time here was amazing but my adventure doesn’t end here, catch my next posts on Dubai and the Bali Trip Debacle!!!
