Don't worry about it. You are young and healthy, so Time is on your side. :)

I'm fairly sure that you may have broken at least a heart or two unknowingly... most girls do... *faint smile*

BTW, what career are you planning to go into after graduation?

now to think about it, yea... there was this one guy i always felt guilty about, with hindsight. hai...

hmm... to be honest, i still don't really know what i want to be. have thought about several options, one would be to be a writer, but that would be quite a big dream. more realistically, perhaps go into the public relations line with a hotel, or an mnc, or something that would expose me with people from different countries, or get to fly about quite a bit.

another thought i've been having lately is to go overseas to work, maybe just for about a couple of years. but for this i'll have to wait till next semester after i take my language proficiency test, then can see how, depending on how well is the results also...

Whatever line of work you are planning to go into, try to get an internship or a temp job in that line during the holidays... It's a good time for you to try out the different lines of work and see which ones suits you best... In the private sector, "relevant working experience" counts a lot more than academic results because it takes a lot of time and energy to train new people and most companies don't want to have to do it... esp. given the rate with which people change employers these days. Training new people is a drain on precious resources and understaffed companies just cannot spare the extra manpower to train a newbie. Furthermore, the newbie that's being trained bears the brunt of the old timers' frustrations and unhappiness at having to teach "such simple things"...

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have done a sort of statistical study of responses to this meme, and that yours was one of the blogs chosen for the sample. (I tried to let the unwitting participants know through trackbacks, but apparently the spam-filters caught all but a few of these).

The first of the results are posted on my site here.
