... aaaaaaand, I'm going back to school... with a new tattoo!

Remember how I said that this September was the first September that I'd be working instead of going back to school?

Well... it ain't happening.

I'm going back to school to get a Bachelor of Human Resources and Labour Relations.
That being said, that means I'm no longer a graduate (from my college) because long story short, due to some "legality" issues, in order to pursue my Bachelor's, I need to drop out of my college and not get the diploma, but I get the transcript to transfer into my undergraduate program.

It's a bit upsetting to me, knowing that I spent more than 10k and not getting a diploma in the end because that school can't sort their shit out. So, essentially, I just spent a lot of money to get a measly transcript, and guess what? The undergraduate program cost about the same for the diploma.


But, you know what? It's just another bump in the road. I'm pretty sure I can get my undergraduate degree in about 2 years or less, which is still pretty fast compared to everyone else, haha. I'm buckling down to get this shit done with.

On the brighter side, I got a much more flexible schedule than my previous school which means I can work part time during my studies again... how I miss earning my own money!

Meanwhile, on the brighter side, this is what I've been spending my money on:


For the longest time, I was hesitant to buying an iPad mini because I already got a Samsung tablet and the sole purpose for the tablet was to read on it. However, I made the decision to switching to an iPad and couldn't be more happier. My reading experience has improved and so has my entertainment usage. I do wish iBooks had more features... like, how about the basic, sort by last read?? duhh.
Yes, about a month (give or take a few days) since my first tattoo, I impulsively stopped by that tattoo parlor again for my second one! I was supposed to get it done with my friend but she didn't save up for her tattoo yet, so we're going back next month... maybe, I'll get my third? I haven't gotten anything planned yet so most likely not.

And, can't forget new university swaaaag ;)

  2. That's too bad about school! That's very strange that you can't receive a diploma if you plan to continue your studies. Good luck with classes, though!

  3. Yup! The second tattoo is one of my favourite quotes based off the The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, hence the little kite at the end. I love the quote because it basically translate to unconditional love to the ones in our lives (in the novel, it's based on a father-son relationship). It's not really dedicated to anyone specifically in my life but it acts ans an overall relationship to those I care most about.

  4. I thought it was very strange too as no school I've known has every done that but I guess it's their own policy. I'm just glad I get to continue my studies despite the misfortune with the previous school.
