You should. International law is really interesting.

yes.
Isn't it hard to manage work and studies?

yes, i cant imagine leaving the country for so long.
i hd the chance to move to london a few months ago and work in "the city" my bank has a branch there but i turn it down..its not for me and i can go for a few weeks but no more.

i think if i could decide b/c i started all of this my life could have been more easy. a lot more.
A lot of my friends have told me that they can't imagine leaving too. Some people (like you!) value their roots more than others and are more sentimental about their friends and family.

I regretted going to law school for a really long time because my passion was never the law; it still isn't, to a large extent. I also felt like my life would be better or easier if I'd just gone for what I'd always loved. But our choices have already been made, so the only thing we can do from here on out is to make the best of what we've chosen. That's why you went back to school, no?

its not hard leaving everything behind?how do u deal with home sick (if u have) and being so far from ur family and friends? ru going back after u will finish ur studies?
Honestly I haven't been homesick much; the only two times were when I first got here and couldn't get used to some things about London (dirty Tube and tube stations, inefficiency, shops closing early, no Asian food in supermarkets...) and when I was PMSing earlier this month, but other than that I don't miss home in general. I've wanted to leave Singapore since I was 16 and I finally got the chance to do it 10 years later. I'd like to get a job here because I'm specialising in human rights law and Singapore has no human rights, so if I go back I'd either go back to a law firm, which I hate, or to the government, which is comfy but not something that I want to do, so my options are quite limited.
