This is a proper blog post (I hope so)

I'll just briefly talk about the highlights of these 3 months that I've missed out. Im so unproductive today so I decided to give myself a cheat day and write a blog post.

After I came back from Ireland early January, it was the beginning of new semester. Which we will all be conducting a 2 weeks joint project along with students from architecture technology, QS, construction manager, building surveyor and lastly us the real estate. we've a total of 11 groups with 12-14 members in a group.

We've to develop a project from a given project site with proper building layout, market research, financial appraisal, life cycle maintenance, construction, all construction projects you name it we've to do it and present to the head of department, director of property company, chartered values and construction managers, architects you name it. Within the 15 minutes presentation, we were pressured and bombarded with questions about the designing, the cost and everything and left us speechless. Some other group members cried after being criticised. It was horrible.

Sadly, we didn't win top 3 but our scores were definitely top 5 among the others. our uni booked everyone a nice luncheon at a super nice restaurant to congratulate our success and give out the award. It was a really nice 2 weeks spending with them.

and then in February, I went to a street singer's headline show and it was amazing.

I guess it was a different kind of experience despite me and my friends were the only Chinese and the eldest fans in the crowd but it was definitely an amazing evening.

Later on I went for Men's nationals in Glasgow. Didn't win but it was a really great experience too see all amazing players gather in the same field to show off their skills.

and then I spent a really great night celebrating Danning's birthday!

day after, I went to uni as a student helper for applicant day. spent some sick time playing VR and interacting with the others. It was a really nice experience as well and good pay with free lunch!

also not too long ago I went for frisbee friendlies in Manchester and it was certainly the most tiring game I've ever played. It was only 5 degrees and crazy wind. I came home sick and had to feed myself panadol before bed. However it was a really great weekend running and injured my tendon and got sick but it was sick! get it get it?

 recently it was Anith's birthday she invited all of her friends and ofc us the frisbee gang for her party. she invited me to come earlier for preparation so I helped her out and she cooked amazing bolognese for me. I learned the recipe and cooked myself some bolognese today and it was amazing. now I've tons of bolognese in the fridge so I do not have to go out to hunt for food in this blizzard weather.

yeah, weather has been really bad recently. it was suddenly snowing, suddenly sunny, suddenly crazy wind. temperature hasn't been really constant and it's making me very sick.

besides, I really want to tell you about my dissertation journey. my supervisor has asked me to conduct interview instead of conducting surveys and it has changed my perspectives and gained so much insights about facilities management. I get to networked with directors of different companies who would spent their precious time with me just to participate in my 15000 words essay. Have my linked in profile connected with these directors make me feel like I'm in the clouds. I can never ask for better experience than this. they were so helpful even when the interview is completed they would still give me a hand if I needed any extra details. my dissertation is due in 3 weeks and I only have them half written. Im currently clueless as I'm also just waiting for my supervisor feedback so I can write a better analysis. it has been a hell of a journey but also a fruitful one for me.

Jessica also just shared our childhood pictures so I thought I'll let you see my RBF since I was 5. Ken was on the left and jess is on the right.

performance for graduation haha.

so far I've no updates. it is very brief but I tried my best. I will try to write more if possible. at least let me go through my dissertation first. adios xoxo
