I love school!

At the risk of sounded like the biggest nerd in the universe, this was one of the best semesters I had in Graduate school, or ever really.

I finished my thesis on Emotional Competence in Young Children, a topic I explored at length in my master’s program and I’m very proud of my work. Before you begin to say, she has no shame. Let it be known that I am, my own, harshest critic. I’m always telling myself, I can do better, but this time. I can actually say, I did good! I researched very thoroughly on a topic that I truly loved, and it was my best work so far in Graduate school.

Some of my classmates are graduating this year and I’m going to miss them.

Thank Goodness, I’m not graduating yet! I have one more semester to go, a class in Program Evaluation (educational programs) and Early Childhood before I officially graduate. I’m very excited about the latter course because I truly enjoy working with young children. When I’m done with school, I’m going to explore the possibilities of working with young children.

I’m so thankful for my supportive husband, and the fact that I don’t have to juggle a full time job and a Master’s program. It has really given me the opportunity to dig deep and really explore my passions and research interests. Thank you MB!!! Considering that I’ve finished the most difficult part of graduate school, I’m ready to cruise through the next semester. Bring it on!

Before that tho, I’m looking at a trip to Kris’s parents and a long awaited trip back home to Singapore.

Holidays! Here I come!


Real Men Do Housework

I love this photo of Kris helping me doing the dinner dishes. He looks happy, content and frankly so adorable. I think his expression encapsulates very accurately how happy we are, even when we’re doing mundane things like dishes. According to him, he doesn’t like it because its kinda ‘cutesy’. I think its VERY CUTE. I don’t care that American Culture patronizes the concept of cute, I run half of an ASIAN household and that’s that! I’ve already given up my ‘s-es’ for ‘z-es’, and I refuse to give up anymore. 😛

He’s also sick today, I mandated that he rest at home instead of spreading the virus around in the office but turns out there are quite a few sick puppies in the office already. Its my belief that if you’re sick, work from home, because why get everyone else (and their families) sick too? But, I’m not the boss so I have very little clout in that. Instead of resting, like he should, he has still been working, checking emails and going on long conference calls.

When he succeeds/achieves his goals from this business, I will punch anybody who says ‘He’s lucky/He was at the right place at the right time’. The only reason for his success, is because he lives and breathes NSONE. Frankly, I cannot think of anybody I know who works as hard as he does. Get well soon Hubbabot! #FIGHTING!!! (Which is Korean for: GOOD GOING/GOOD JOB/CONTINUE TO PERSERVER)

Learning Korean is hard, but I WILL NOT GIVE UP either! #FIGHTING!
