Daily30: Dear 16-year old Me

Assalamualaikum,

I forgot to put up a poll for today’s topic, so here’s a quick, random one that I can think of for tonight. This is inspired by so many posts on the internet where people share letters to their past self, and I thought of doing one myself too, of what I would tell my younger self if I could go back in time (to 8 years ago, to be specific) (oh crap now you know my age).

This is 16-yo me, who had just recently discovered the joy of smiling with her teeth showing. And yes, she was wearing braces at that time.

Daily30: I’ve been promoted!

Posted in Daily30, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

First of all, I apologize for skipping today’s topic of Fresh Grads Tips (as chosen by voters on Twitter). Since I’ve just been promoted to a new ‘position’,  I figured that today is a special day that deserves its own post.

Daily30: From Actuarial Science to Higher Education.

Assalamualaikum,

Hello again. For today’s Daily30 blog challenge (yes, that’s what we’re calling it now), I actually did a poll on Twitter to find a topic to write about. The topics I put up in the poll were either posts I’ve been meaning to write, or things people asked me on Ask.fm (but were never answered yet), or just things I found on random blog-posts-ideas on Google. And the good thing is, they’re pretty broad, so I can write about anything I want related to them.

52 Twitter-ers (?) (+3 people who voted via Instagram) have spoken.

Life’s New Updates

Posted in Personal

Assalamualaikum,

This is just going to be a quick update as I’m heading to bed soon. It’s a busy week at work, what with the February intake orientation and old students coming back to school next week as well. To top it off, I’m in charge of orientation so I’m trying to make sure everything is going well and smooth with presentations and lab sessions and all that stuff.

So, what’s up in my life now (not that anyone’s asking anyway)?
