There Is No Plan B


Kinda disappointed that I only got a Merit for Jurisprudence, but at least it didn't screw up my overall degree classification.

It's also somewhat anticlimatic 'cause I expected this based on the provisionals, but still - it's nice to finally know for sure.

I can't wait to be one of the first few names called at graduation. I missed that feeling during my LL.B. commencement ceremony; now I get to make up for that.


It is extremely gratifying to get what you've worked towards for over a year and wanted from Day Zero. This is one of the biggest achievements of my life and it's come at the right time, when I sorely need a reminder of sorts that I'm not some useless, inadequate, not-good-enough random from Singapore trying to leech off the full-of-lifeness that is London. It probably doesn't make much sense that I derive self-validation from these things, but it is what it is - and it feels pretty good right now.

I wrote before about how there was no Plan B. There is something to be said about my stubborn single-mindedness, but I'm better off for it because it's gotten me what I so badly, perhaps even desperately, wanted. More than ever, though, there really is no Plan B. I don't know what it is to make alternate plans. I want what I want and that is what I will get.


Have to get up in 2.5 hours to go to Portugal with Mag. Yay!
