I have so much thoughts but have no idea how to or where to start from.
In a nutshell, one of the worst week ever.
Fuck. Can my life please get better.

And history repeats itself.
Giving me a relapse.
But actually, it isn't a big deal?
Trust that she's a grown up and can handle everything herself already.
I'll have to do what i always do, to love less to be overly attached.
Do something with your life instead of wasting it away.
-I realised this is probably the only space I have, to myself.

Yes that's right.
AH BOY TO MAN.
Brandon has officially served 1 year and 10 months of National Service!
So here's how my pink IC looked like, i totally forgot about how one is like after 'losing' it for close to two years.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that made an impact in any one way or another throughout my NS stint.
-MOHAWK BMT PLATOON 2, especially section 2.
My BMT journey in BMTC isn't like any others colourful ones, or anything like the ones you see in the movie Ah Boys to Men, in fact, it is not even anywhere close. I regretted so much making my girlfriend suffer the most during that period where i felt the most of insecurity, and also making myself suffer when it is really unnecessary. Anyway, although i did not enjoy my BMT as a recruit, i am thankful to have wonderful commanders for Mohawk Company Platoon 2, Ming Jie, Sidney, Hafiz, Jit Kang, Ganesh. Not to forget the fellow recruits who went through thick and thin for that short 9 weeks. Hope to continue keeping in touch with you peeps.
-DELTA SCS FOUNDATION TERM PLATOON 2, especially section 1.
-DELTA SCS PROFESSIONAL TERM PLATOON 2, especially section 1.
I wouldn't say infantry training is tough but without these people marching on along side with me, i probably would have given up long ago. The grueling field camps, constant outfield to master the art of section and platoon fighting tactics, countless PT lessons and also finale exercises in Taiwan are all unforgettable memories and invaluable experience that no where else can give. Now i have stories to tell to my descendants. Lessons i have learnt from the ever strict Staff Heng, Warrant Ang, Warrant Kim, Warrant Ravi and the faculty instructors will definitely go a long way. Many thanks to my closest sections and they know who they are. Special mention to Joel Loi, my buddy who was with my all the way. You, yourself was quite a great help to me and a pretty awesome buddy too. Thanks for being there whenever i needed you and all the best for your pursuit in the field of medicine!
-BMTC SCHOOL 3 HQ
For spending the longest period, 1 year 2 months there, i met great people there and of course some not so good ones. My tour as a HQ Training Specialist was a bumpy one. Although i wouldn't say that i've seen it all, but the life lessons i've acquired from my tour there will be extremely useful. Thanks to the Big 4 for guiding me along. On a side note, i will definitely miss the many crazy nights with you all, the gaming, fooling around, chit chats, there is no where else i can lead a life like that other than in School 3 HQ. I predict not even hall in university will ever come close to what we had. Despite the working, and i quote from Kang Gary of Running Man, 'STRESS', i still very much enjoyed what i have been given. I would love to be a 3SG at any company line shouting at recruits but you people just made everything much better. I really hope to keep in contact no matter which path you are heading for in life. All the best my brothers.
Of course i cannot miss out on the continuous support from my family, friends and Chanel who was with there throughout this journey. I have definitely grown up and matured so much more than before enlisting into SAF. Many thanks and with much love. *inserts heart*
And also, here goes all my army belongings into my duffle bag, into the storeroom.
Till we meet again. (Reservist)
And so now that i am a free man, it is time to get on with life.
So this coming weekend, i am going for my LASIK evaluation.
I simply cannot wait.
After which, i should be start seeking for employment opportunities and not lazing around doing nothing.
I have about 4 months before school begins.
Not the degree to pursuit for the brightest future but i guess its decent enough.
So enrolling into university also means that there are things to settle, financial assistance, tuition fee related, photo, medical. Did i miss out anything?
And previously this week, i attempted to submit a NUS scholarship application but gave up because i do not have any proud achievement in my life so far, no leadership position/appointment or what so ever in this 21 years. I cannot even convince myself to give myself a scholarship.
Lets not let anything like that happen during my tour in NUS.
If we ever meet again.

Nope, scratch that. I had a paragraph or two about my thoughts on ORD but decided not to publish it. No where on the internet is safe. Especially when recently, there has been an investigate ongoing around regarding. Not that what i had to say would tarnish any reputation but to exercise discretion because i can.
Its been a long 1 year 9 months and i have less than 20 days to go. Growing old is compulsory, growing up is optional. Despite that, you have to admit that as you grow old, you will need to grow up to match the challenges out there. I am currently on sudden realization that the reason why i kept saying i feel old, is because i am really growing old. I cannot purchase kids meal without getting weird stares. I cannot use secondary school student discount. I cannot go to a random barber and cut my hair and get charged the price of a secondary school student. I cannot look at pretty school girls and not feel like a pedophile. I am already 21 this year, almost done with national service. Soon after my last stage of education, i will soon be all by myself. No longer talks about all fun and laughter, but about future, money and plans. Ok, i'm sounding a little depressed.
Even so while i am here at home, i have constant communication with Pulau Tekong simply because there are too many problems(cock ups). From what i know, this shouldn't be the life of one that is going to ORD in less than 20 days time. I want to put my mind at ease and handover completely as soon as possible. But things complicate. (and i'm not one of those that exaggerates) What a bumpy 1 year 10 months.
