Another hectic day

If I think very hard about it, I probably have like 21 things to do by yesterday, and I haven’t completed anything yet.
I will be reorganising this blog into new categories which better suit the subject matter in my posts. Please excuse any mess that may result.
Update: I had dinner with cousin Luke and several of his old schoolmates. I was early and had to look out for one of his friends, whom I hadn’t met before. However as a top debator he was well known throughout the junior colleges. Those sort of people were in the league which I knew I’d never get into.
Then I wondered why I was feeling so apprehensive! Despite being out of the Singapore education system for years, I still felt a sense of awe knowing that the people I was meeting, were all geniuses, scholars, doctors-to-be, outstanding speakers. I, the hapless underachiever, felt unworthy to be with them.
But I was wrong. They were fascinating, open conversationalists with no airs about them. We adjourned for drinks after dinner, and I came home feeling very sleepy but – still, fascinated. I think I need to get out of the house more often.
