100 days to as

-work in progress-

The journey through standardised education isn't standardised. 

Regarded as one of the final rites of passage in Singapore's pre-

University education system, the journey of adolescents hinging on the

precipice of adulthood (by law at least) has never felt so mundane and 

archaic at the same time. Youth culture is highly romanticised in

common media, excluding the ironically more common narrative of our

teenagedom. This is our youth.

In other news, a bird attacked me while I was studying at Starbucks and I think thats an apt summary of my life at this point of time.
