16

The final installment. Credits to my cheeky VPI for guessing this number right. Although it's for slightly different meanings and slightly different times.16, for what's next. #vnntu16? #ce16? 2016?You get the idea. I used to think that after one year of doing so many things at once, I would sit back and take a long good rest. Then I realize I still have a bit of fire left in my systems; my hands still itchy to try new things. Plus I don't have a tendency to decline when my (close) friends need help. And if I don't do anything my life will be boring as hell.So for every friend of mine who made that choice to focus on other things after this year, I wish you a very happy retirement. Certainly not for me.Starting with #ce16, "CE office hours =))" would definitely go on! I could not deny an opportunity to fix things that are broken and to have one more fun and meaningful year with CE. That opportunity is doing pubs, and I'll definitely attempt to do a proper…

After the previous two stories, one might think that I'm really miserable. Like stressful or sad and stuff.The answer is too far from the truth. Well there were definitely a lot of great moments doing 15 and 18 for a start. But just the fun counted, this one blew all the other out of their windows. Especially when I got to experience it again and again and again.12, for this. Pardon me if I throw out too many boss names in the following lines. I simply don't have any subcomm.To begin with, I would like to offer a sincere apology to J-boss for lying to you during my treasurer interview. It was pretty clear at that time that I was going to be the president of another organisation, yet I said I would have little to no commitment the following academic year. A pretty epic lie, but I figured if X-boss could president MSA and boss our club at the same time, and if I was that exceptional at counting money, there should not be any problem.Indeed there was not. The only problem was that…

Special post alert.Looking back, đây có lẽ sẽ là một trong những câu chuyện khác người nhất mà mình sẽ từng viết. Câu chuyện này có ý nghĩa rất lớn với mình, tốn khá nhiều thời gian ôm mon để viết và chỉ có hai người duy nhất từng biết nó tồn tại.But now everyone who can understand my choice of language will. This is a story of integration, of love, loss, and redemption.18, for #p18neersMình ở tầng 7 block 18B. Block 18A-B có một sự đặc biệt đó là sự thông nhau, mà tầng 7 bên A là tầng nữ nên có thể gọi là mình ở tầng mix =)) Một ngày đẹp trời gọi là welcome dinner lần đầu tiên của hall (cách đây 2 năm), 18AB-7 được xếp chung một nhóm, ngồi ăn chém gió, và từ ấy mình quen hàng xóm của mình. Quen cũng chỉ là quen mặt thôi không có gì nhiều lắm, nhưng cũng đủ để cả tầng này biết chuyện phòng 191 6 người.Một năm trôi qua không có gì nổi bật. Mọi thứ bắt đầu trở nên thú vị khi rất nhiều người trong số những người hàng xóm ấy quyết định đăng kí làm GL cho camp hall lần đầu, trong đó có đến…

1st June is a special day for a lot of people. For kids, it's International Children's Day. For a selected few, probably the first day of work when it comes to summer internships and stuff. For me, it's the end of many responsibilities and the start of new ones.Talking about responsibilities, there hasn't been any year with more to handle than the previous academic year. Two main comm posts including one of the highest of positions, plus the occasional other commitments. It was stressful, it was tiring, but nonetheless it was extremely fulfilling.This series of numbers serve as a reminder of how great a year it has been. And it starts with a very familiar one.15, for 15 minutes, and for #vnntu15Little did I know that a decision made with 15 minutes remaining before the nomination deadline would have such a profound impact on my life. I'm thankful to everyone who have given me the opportunity to care a whole awful lot for this community. And I reserve the greatest o…
