Getting Called

Today marks the day where my name has been officially entered into the rolls of Advocates and Solicitors in Singapore.

In a different life, I may be teaching English full time in Japan, a missionary in China, a freelance photographer, a property agent, a flight steward, or a million and one other jobs. However, I think the time has finally come for me to decide, and set my mind and heart to, my chosen profession. As i donned the court robe and took my oath before the judge, my left hand firmly on the bible and my right hand raised eye-level, I looked upon the state crest, the judge, the representatives from the law society and AGC as I recited the vows... "so help me God". Indeed, it was by God's grace that I made it thus far, it would definitely be God's guidance that I continue on this path.

This is it. Jared, so prone to fickle-mindness and flighty whimsical ambitions of fancy finally decides today, this day, that he would sticks to his guns, and give it his best shot.

It takes courage and character to stick to a decision, especially knowing everything else you have given up. I am, as always, proud of you and what you have achieved.

Tomorrow marks my first anniversary in Japan too, and soon I would have stayed here longer than you did... Hehehe.

Miss you xx
