May came and is gone in a flash. I’m guessing that by now, your examinations would be over (perhaps, just for now) and that if you are studying abroad in the northern hemisphere, then you might be back home enjoying your summer holidays. For those of you in the southern hemisphere, do bundle up! As for those of you around the tropical area, life goes on as usual.
But whether it is hot, cold, wet or dry, ReMag doesn’t sleep! In fact, this month, we will bring you another guest article by How Han Ming, who wrote about teenagers. All of us, whether we remember it or not, have gone through our teenage years (or perhaps are still going through them). These years are perhaps some of the most tumultuous, rebellious and exciting years of our lives when we seem to be forever energetic and active, before settling down into adulthood and into a more stable, calm life. However, did teenage years bring the best from within us, or the worst?
Now, what is the theme for the month? The third week of our publication this month will see articles that revolve around the theme: “What It Means To Be…” With such a generic-sounding theme, you can bet that our theme articles will discuss different (and perhaps unrelated) topics – all to provide a scope of articles that is as wide as possible, as well as keeping you interested! What’s more, this month we will feature an article from our Editor!
