It’s been almost two weeks since I last blogged about the Seoul weekly highlights and the blog is missing Week 13’s and 14’s! InsyaAllah, those entries are currently in the draft mode and I’ll publish them soon.
Thing is, I feel like I have been busy occupying myself with things these two weeks.
For instance on the school front and since the semester is about to wrap up, I found myself having to clear several deadlines. That’s fine and I kind of enjoy doing the things I have been doing. I’m worried about this one exam that I have to sit for in the last week of school though. I’ve not sat for an exam since forever. 10 years to be exact! I don’t even know if I’m up for it.
Other than that, the rest of the time is filled with random outings around Seoul either by myself or with my friends when they are available.
In between, I’ve been busy trying to settle some other stuff like looking for avenues to post ads for people who may want to lease out my apartment, helping my friend manage her Facebook public profile, connecting with people back at the workplace to settle a work arrangement for when I’m back, trying to complete setting up a website for an avenue my friends have been urging me to explore and then settling some designs with my Korean designer friend for the said avenue.
So in between, time just flew.
I was so surprised to look at my calendar today to find that I only have two weeks left before flying off to Singapore for my summer vacation! Ironically since I have things to settle here, I realized that perhaps, I should’ve booked a flight at a later date. Nevertheless, the tickets have been booked so insyaAllah, I’ll be on that flight back to Singapore two weeks from now. Pray for my safety! I’m always nervous before a flight. 😦
Meantime, I have a naggy suspicion that my luggage has exceeded it’s 20kg limit and that I have to courier some items home before I leave. That means… Even more errands to run right?
And I have not even looked for boxes to place all my stuff as I have to pack all my belongings and vacate the apartment before I go back to Singapore for my holiday.
Too many things to do all of a sudden!
In between all that, I have also tried to make it a point to connect with my loved ones at least once everyday. It takes more effort especially when I have other things that are occupying my time but alhamdulillah, I have been able to communicate with them everyday which is very, very important for me. I firmly believe that at the end of the day, no matter how busy I am, I have to ensure that I get my priorities right. These priorities, namely God and my loved ones, form the non-negotiable parts of my life so yep, I commit a portion of the time daily for them no matter how constraining the time can be.
And Ramadan will be upon us in a few hours. That’s something I’m so excited about and I pray so, so, so much that He allows me to experience this coming Ramadan, insyaAllah amin.
