Confirmation;

I don’t quite believe that its already almost six months since I started work, and time for my confirmation (a process where I become an official employee)! It feels like the start of a relationship with the nervous first few months haha.

I’m pretty glad I still feel pretty much at home here.

The mid-week depression has mostly dissipated, though still feel down often at moments. I suppose maybe its just a matter of not wanting to return back home, and wishing to travel again, or to endeavour something new. After all, Beansprouts knows I am often restless, even in the moments of a day.

I’ve been enjoying reading Evidence law past few days. I had revised it a few weeks before, and realized I had promptly forgotten almost everything. So picking it up again, attempting the questions, reading the articles, it is a mix of fresh insights and curiosity at the permutation of questions. Yes, I am doing my European law-style weird scenario questions again, which I secretly adore, and Beansprouts must remember all the strange scenarios we thought of, especially since he featured in some of them!

I really enjoy this talk about whether the principles and norms of evidence law. I am not so thrilled with criminal, but evidence is pretty exciting, on figuring out what is admissible and what ought to count as legal professional privilege. I bet Mokal would have ran intellectual circles around these guys.

I feel that not being in law school for sometime has affected my speed and ability to make lateral connections between issues. It used to come pretty naturally, and now I have to put some thought to it. I hope I’m not getting old!

And I did write in to the radio station after all!

Dear Sir,
 
I happened to come across 96.3fm today (Sat Oct 10) and I was pleasantly surprised – the songs were beautiful, with a mix of jazz/musical/Chopin guitar, violin and saxophone interludes. I don’t know how you all did it, but you just covered my favourite pieces (in a different presentation) for the day.
 
Thank you.
 
Yours,
Grace

They wrote back an introductory reply on the station, and for Singaporeans, you might like to check out this station. 🙂 But their French is too advanced for me to understand, haha…

Admitably it is a little strange to be listening to an expatriate radio station 0.0 but they do play some nice pieces.
