Counting down from Week 6.5


Time really passes so fast. My snack supplies in the cubicle are dwindling, my table is getting messier by the day and they are letting me take on more responsibilities now. But…

Out of 24 weeks, only 6.5 weeks are left. 6.5 weeks to my final summer break. 6.5 weeks to the end of internship. 6.5 weeks to pure rest that I am going to enjoy without any commitment to any organisation. 24 weeks is too short and yet too long to bear.

The phrase “work until you die” will apply to me in about a years’ time. No more school holidays, no more summer breaks, no more children’s day. I will only get to enjoy public holidays and about 10+ days of leave per year depending on the company that I tie myself to.

The future is so uncertain, just like how SG’s General Elections were just a few days ago. No one knows the future, and no one knows the exact events that may happen seconds, minutes and hours from now. A freak result at the elections would have unsettled many, but a freak result in my own life would have dire consequences that I myself will have to bear. I have only about a year left to plan the next phase of life where I have to leave the shelter and security of SG’s educational institutions.

Life. Issues. Troubles. Plans. Future. Uncertainty. But at least I know I have an unchanging God on my side, walking behind, before and beside me.
