Change of plans

In case you were wondering, IIII chaaanged my miiiind (lalala)

1ST SEMESTER
Academic English for Social Sciences (3 units, compulsory)
Statistics for journalists (6 units, compulsory)
Ways of reading: film, literature and culture (6 units, prerequisite course for second major)
Hong Kong cinema through a global lens (6 units, common core course)
Putonghua for foreign learners II (3 units, compulsory language course)
Total: 24 units, which means my schedule is sweeeeeet. Even more so, I’m brilliant enough to have made my days on campus 3 and my days of “self-study” four. Thursday to Sunday, bring on the looong weekend!

2ND SEMESTER
Professional writing for the media (3 units, compulsory)
Economics for journalists (6 units, compulsory)
News reporting and writing (6 units, compulsory)
Principles of journalism and the news media (6 units, compulsory)
Moral controversies in a modern world (6 units, common core course)
Introduction to Chinese and Western Philosophy (6 units, elective course)
Total: 33 units. Do know that I might kick myself for the lazy ass 1st semester and want to take more courses, but ah well. This ought to be fun! And I still have Mondays off. Woop!

And yes, I do know I’ve been awfully crap at updating. It’s just my way of pretending that I’m too busy. But who am I kidding? I’ve got a four day weekend! Which I have yet to use productively. Ended up doing my first assignment à la high school (meaning at the very last minute) but at least now I’m 1.5h ahead of deadline in stead of past it. I feel like I should be off to a good start. Kind of. Hopefully. Yeah. Sure.

Anyways pennyways, I’ll be sure to toss up some works of Nikki in the next few days. Perhaps I’ll throw in a couple of songs I’ve got stuck in my head thanks to certain people with boppin heads. Perhaps. Let’s hope not. Now time to have a shower and perhaps come out of it with blueblack hair. Taaa!


Just to be utterly cliché – Sky’s the limit in HK.
