Torn between a farewell and university stuff

This week is the last week that I will be working as an intern at the firm.  My dept boss suggested yesterday that we do a lunch on Thursday, my last day of work.

On the same say, I have a course advice session to attend at my future university - Monash University Malaysia, located at Sunway. In the email I received, it was said that the first session of the course advice, on the 20th (Thursday) is recommended for all to attend rather than the 2nd sessionon the 27th (Thursday) which is a week later. This is because attending the course advice on the 20th will speed up enrolment process and make the allocation of tutorial classes easier.

At first, I was all going to the course advice due to my natural kiasuness and wanting to obtain the best that I can. But mum suggested that I go for the 27th because it would make no difference while my dad wants me to go for the 20th and write an apology note to my boss and thank her for the opportunity.

I am seriously undecided at this point. Not sure what to do. Personally I don't really care if I go to the lunch. I am pretty cool with not going, since I am considered a temporary employee at the firm. I can actually separate any emotions that may attach to people in the dept. I am cool with that.

I really want to go for both really, but reality hit me when I realise it may take 1 hour to get back to office as the course advice runs from 10am - 12pm.

As I type this, I am still undecided. But my stomach grumbling reminds me that I need lunch.

So ciao ~
