Remember that an outside observer isn't being pulled into the black hole as you are. Less than a nanosec after your feet enter, you enter.

You won't be able to see the universe shrink unless you can keep yourself above the event horizon, time never stops, it keeps going in your reference point and you'll reach the singularity in a matter of fractions of a second.

Not really, because you can still predict what happens after the horizon whereas a singularity exists when physics can no longer be applied to describe the situation, which is why the infinite dense center of the black hole is a singularity and not the horizon.
