Different country will give you different experience. To come to think of how reluntant I made my choice for INSTEP last semester due to various reasons.<br>
But now, when I think back, I feel lucky that I made the correct choice. I supposed, I'm pretty happy that I choose this country, too comfortable in my little hostel. I dont know why, at least when I travel over to other places in Europe, I'll would compare them with my  current exchange country.
Most of my friends start counting down to going back to Singapore, mostly homesick. I am homesick too. Just that, it's kind of weird. The feeling whereby you want to go home, yet you dont want to leave your current city. I do miss home, Singapore. But I don't feel like leaving Stockholm yet.
I do miss my family, my bed, my friends & Singapore's  food, but yeh, dont know why.

 Hello People!  Reindeer. :)))) I went to Finland, Rovenami, Santa Claus village to look at santa claus ( & have to pay 25euros should you wish to take photos with him). But i spent quite a hefty sum just to get a ride from the reindeer & Husy dog! Pretty a new experience. After poking the reindeer, he still dont want to look at the camera. -.-
 ok, atcually going to Rovenami is already a new experience the first time i experienced snow when I walked out of my house, thick layers of snow, building snow man, realise that snow issnt that clean/white that i used to think about, walking on ice ( just like skating ), walking on snow when your whole feet can even sink into it, snowing , playing the "snowcity skate down the hill" I was such a failure because I dont even dare to skate down the hill. The little girl there ( i guess about 11/12 year old) is much more better than me in doing it. O-M-G
 Stockholm's pretty bad now, the weather. Sun goes down at around 3.30pm in the afternoon. when sun sets so early, it made me feel like going home before dark (which is like 3.pm sweden time) Cloudy most of the time & you can only see sun for once/twice a week or something. Now when there's sun, I quickly run out of my hostels/ stand under the sun. Even though there's sun & you stood under it, you will still feel cold. But it's ok! I actually prefer cold weather than the hot weather. How am I going to adpat to the hot weather when i'm back in S-I-N-G-A-P-O-R-E? current state now: I am feeling homesick but yet I dont want to go home yet. this sounds ironic, and to the extend of contradicting. But Singapore is still the place where I belong, I will never ever change my nationality. hahha. I guess, I miss the familiarity there, my friends, my family & alll other familiarity. ( am I talking nonesense of some sort of crap?! )
something that can arouse a chemistry student, perhaps? Sometimes, I really feel gald/appreciate/ lucky that I got a chance to come over to Europe, to see things in a different way, to view the other part of the world, to understand some life experience & logic. Maybe maybe, like what other people always says, "the grass on the other side is always greener." Idk.
But seriously, I'm gald that I am having my exchange in Stockholm, Sweden. ( to come to think that I was actually quite reluctant /force to a certain extend to choose here as my exchange destination due to the long period stay. ) Should I call it fate/destiny or?! idk.
Tack Stockholm, Sverige för allt!

going overseas really let you learn alot. I suddenly/randomly wanted to update my blog because I reaslised that I didnt for quite a long time. ( I hope someone still drop by or something.) Been going through a rollercoaster ride in Stockholm due to my carelessness. Itrip & fall, broke my front tooth, went to see the dentist alone because everyone's busy with their exam, shivered and cried in the clinic room for 2h15mintues,called home(BACK TO SINGAPORE) crying on the phone, with doctors and nurse communciating in Swedish and i dont even understand a single wor they are talking/happening, mistakened as from China, got a lady from China to translate English back to Chinese for me, sent a hefty sum of money$$ there, bruise on my ankle and face &&& i dont even noe if my tooth is alive now. :(  struck in their mettro station , lost my ezlink card, and dont even ave a single cent/identitiy card with me. wearing very little in Belgium when it's even raining ice & no one really offer for help ebcause everyone is cold, or partly I didnt ask.
{That's the typical Swedish House. }

Back in Singapore/school, I get to stick with people/choose to stick with people that you like/same frequency and same daily habits, but when u come over here, you got to manage to live calmly/harmoniously with a brunch of people who may be different thinkings/frequency/habits. got to really learn give & take. I bet when I finally see one of my closer friends in Edinburgh two weeks later, I will be damn happy. Sometimes, living in a place with 5 out of 8 rooms that came from the same sch as you can be really bad, the advantage is that when bad things happen(ie. the stuffs i mentioned above), there's people to reassure/comfort you, but the disadvantage is that you didnt really get the chance to expose to more people of other internationally. Private kitchen is good, you gotta your own kitech to use whenever you wish, but disadvantage is that you didnt really able to communicate with neighbours at the common area. Partly also its because the characteristics that I possess that may not be able to interact with the people living a the floor/storey above me. The process of suiting to hall life is very difficult, with gatherings which sometimes I can be quite lazy to go & the pressure of cooking something different for potluck which refrain me to attend the gathering sometimes. I think I just dont have the feeling of being too close with them because friends can be a very powerful and influential tool. Dont mistaken me that those people that came to INSTEP with me are bad, they are nice people, it's just that i'm weird and we cant really clique.
I'm passing through this stage because I realise that how I restricted myself to just stick to people who I think is of same frequency as me and ignore/stay away from people of other character.
Passing is a really very difficult thing to do in my school, maybe its because I'm an exchange student and I always thought that way which made me study the very mininal or last mintue. Acedemic wise is tough, travelling Europe can be enjoying but tiring when u go out every single week. And sometimes when u travel with people that you dislike made it harder for you/big groups that prevent you from going to the places that you really want to go. Enjoying Sweden/Stockholm is my top priority now. ( I dont noe why either). Temperature here is so cold that I caught a flu.
When My friend told me that she passed her lab/year4 pe modules yesterday here (means that she took a module that can clear two modules back in NTU), i really kind of feel gald for her. Then I start to think if I will regret not taking/dropping the module for entreprenuership. But i didnt,(at least for now). Reading the comments the teacher wrote back was horrible,really damn horrible, out of point, poor proposal done up, I really wonder if I can scrape through that module. But that module teaches me alot, the different way of teaching style, the content, the people & made me realise how interesting it can be to communciate with different people that is out of your home country, the working style/habit. I did my first first first kayaking in Stockholm. :))) , partnering with a South Africa guy. I have to say he did most of the job. my first Clubbing at some oldies club place( with weird music) in Stockholm, drinking alcholic drink much more frequent back in Stockholm, went to some birthday party that I manage to talk to some really great people. But I really think I have not expose myself that much as compared to those people who came over with little friends, seeing their facebook photos really made me wonder: "Am I really on exchange? I should speak more to other people instead to stay put at my comfort zone."
 
 
Now it's 1st Nov, I left with two months, 8 days in Europe/UK.  it's going to snow everywhere soon. School only left about 6 weeks, 4 more places to travel with my INSTEP friends. I hope I learn more things out of it.
