In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.

countdown.

It's less than 3 weeks to the start of my exams. And as usual, I oscillate between panicking/being depressed about not being able to finish covering the content I need to know, and enthusiastic determination in studying what I enjoy. I have been quite a bit more disciplined this year, I think, but at the same time I'm afraid of having too high expectations of myself. Anyway, I do try to stay away from my computer as much as possible, lest I get distracted. As I just did.

But while I do think too much technology in our lives is bad, and we still need reminders as the following YouTube video does, at the same time, the ability to read about other people's stories online helps remind me of the struggles other people face and makes me reflect and think about what ultimately is most important in life.

Moderation, I guess, is the answer and the best advice for almost everything, and we should all try to live in the moment, and make the best of what we have.


And this beautifully-written and brutally-honest article by a cancer doctor on losing his wife to cancer.

I recall reading a similar article about a doctor losing his wife to cancer sometime ago, but I can't find it now. Tried trawling through my Facebook in an attempt to find the article, but my high output on Facebook meant I just wasted an hour or so. Anyway, I realise I really don't remember half the things I read online, even when they pertain to things I'm interested in. Does not bode well for exams.
