Star to Burst is a performance put up by our freshmen.
During this period, seniors are to help and guide the freshmen through the infancy of their varsity education (bidding of modules or even helping them to be acquainted with the ways around campus and hall).
This creates a buddy system that allows the freshmen to be comfortably integrated into the system of NUS and Kent Ridge Hall.
Freshmen may show their appreciation towards their seniors by decorating their doors or even doing kind gestures (participation is voluntary). The organizing committee FWOC16/17 will decide which are the more outstanding door decoration and the freshmen can win themselves prizes.
It’s always tough getting back on the dating scene after a divorce. Do surround yourself with single friends in all social situations – preferably ones who’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt.
So Samantha Brick, relationship expert for Cupid.com, shares her top 10 dos and don’ts for dating after a divorce. They’re quite brilliant at warning off unsuitable men – their finely honed skills with sort out those chaps who prey on the easy pickings that are recently divorced women.
You need to be supported right now, not the other way round. If you’re new to the dating game after a decades long marriage, brush up on your social skills. Compile suitably friendly and upbeat questions before meeting someone, have some answers rehearsed about yourself. I was amazed at the camaraderie amongst fellow divorcees – the girl who threw the party is still a friend today. On that first crucial date after your divorce – treat yourself kindly. This is the beginning of a new chapter in your dating life – mark it. Know that you will be nervous when you stating dating again. Make sure you’re with friends who will boost your ego and lose those energy vampire friends who aren’t there for you. See your girlfriends (or male friends) on their own. Trust me, they really won’t be at all interested in hearing about the failings of your marriage and your musings on why it didn’t work. Their togetherness will simply serve to highlight your failure in keeping your marriage together. Don’t talk about the ins and outs of your divorce or your ex on a first date. No one likes a ‘poor me’ victim – you’re so much better than that. You will be vulnerable and it’s ok to acknowledge this. Don’t forget to give yourself some breathing space between the decree absolute arriving and accepting a proper first date. You’ll feel cheap and rubbish and it’s likely you won’t ever hear from him again.
