I am tired.

I don’t know why i am became so emo.

Too many conversations i’ve had over the weekend.

Can’t really decipher what its truly best for me.

Memories to me are not a good thing.

There is always so much going on.

Exam stress is building up.

Can’t seem to stay awake whenever i read finance.

Finance is definitely not my thing.

I think i am creative.

Creative enough.

I have alot of good ideas.

Some are brilliant.

Some are just plain lame.

10 months just go by like that.

Time never waited for me.

Dance was good.

I had so much fun leading this weekend.

Its not easy to do something if you werent passionate about it.

Of course, it must be something you are called to do.

Was thinking when to start up my own business.

I have a lot of things in mind.

Thinking about it, excites me.

I hope Liverpool beats man u tonight.

My emo-ness will only get worst if they don’t.

Life’s not always about getting what you want.

because life’s just that.

Don’t take life too seriously.

I shouldn’t be taking myself too seriously even.

I love dinner parties.

I love to dress up for random reasons.

I guess i am just a girl.

Nothing more,nothing less.

I think i have nice hair colour.

Pretty nails.

Love my height.

Relatively good skin.

I love weddings.

I particularly love weddings.

Especially when they have a theme colour.

I like magenta, purple and red.

I am a colour person.

I don’t like black.

I think i will have altogether 6 bridesmaid for my wedding.

I have awesome girl friends.

I made one upset.

and i havent been seeing the other two.

But blessed are the 3 that is with me at the moment.

I cherish them.

I am totally addicted to House.

I am fine with that.

I want to connect with more people.

Realised it takes more than just effort.

Timing is everything.

I love seeing couples holding hands.

I can see it when their love radiates through their action.

Its never easy to meet someone you truly love.

I’ve lost mine.

Its okay.

I finally understood that it is time.

Misguided.

Lost.

and

found.

Are you still reading this?

I feel like having snowflakes for dinner.

Had a heavy and satisfying lunch.

I also feel i’ve been pilling up on my weight.

I wish i could take up a dance class.

I need to be more efficient when it comes to my laundry.

Love the smell of my room.

Wish i am in aus sometimes.

Never too late to trust God again.

Love reading good books.

I just finished one.

Need to a get a suit.

So hard to get the perfect one.

Can’t wait for exams to be over.

Can’t wait for camps.

Can’t wait for my internship.

I am on facebook too much.

Its like I am logged on 24 hours.

Need to get a life.

Maybe i should stop now.

yes, i think i should.

I am glad.
I got so many things done this week.

I managed to finish all my assignments on time and pass them all up.

I managed to do my tutorial work abit and compile all my notes as i prepare for finals.

I managed to study alil for my last BCB test this monday.

I managed to have dinner with jovy and bee at Gardens.

I managed to catch up with my sleep.

I managed to cope with the songs for this week’s celebration.

I managed to change my toenail colour.

I managed to squeeze time for rachel and evelyn for a gurly shop date,

and i still managed to journal every single day.

But i havent gotten time to read any books =(

sigh, we often complain that 24 hours are simply not enough but actually, all we have is time. Its just how we manage them and set our priorities right. I am really tired, but ironically, i am too full of joy to just go to bed. So i thought i should spread some of my joy here before i do so.

So whoever is reading this, yes you, i wish you all the happiness you can get as you read my post. =)

*imagine jiunnli flashing you with her sweetest smile*

Really, happiness is all around you. Stop looking high and low for it. Its always there. You don’t even have to search hard but yes, it is there. It is when you least expect it, happiness comes rolling in. heehee! This gift comes mostly through people, anyone (even just seeing aunty irene from DUMC cafe gives me joy). I thank God for them =). Gosh, i can just go on, and on and on. . . . .

I can’t wait for my next suprise =)

Goodnight world!

Not complaining. . .

Its already 12 in the morning, and i havent really done any addition to the current assignment i am working on. This two weeks are going to be really hectic. With all the major assignments datelines on the same week and also been scheduled to serve for both the weekend and for Unity Celebration this coming Wednesday. Now, i am trying to get inspired to finish choreographing but these things dont just come like that. We need original choreo and new interpretations of the songs.

All in all, its not about performing, but to be able to stand on stage and  giving God your  everything. Something i’ve learnt from the past few months i’ve been serving, it is important to grasp the art of worshiping by relating to the congregation and God. With much focus and concentration, dancing really is an awesome method to worship.

I think our Langkawi trip has been confirmed. Rachel decided to come with me together with the rest of the gang to Langkawi this July. Yeah long way to go still but its okay to get alil excited about it right? We think its going to be  awesome! i just hope someone will go fishing with me =P. Gosh, have to start pumping money into my  ‘travel fund’. Haha, something eve came up with. Good thing i manage to avoid spending this afternoon.

I am actually looking forward to my finals this june.  Time passes by real quick. Now i am coming to the end of my 2nd semester. I will be done with assignments for this sem when i pass them up next week. I just have to shift my worries to my upcoming tests…eeeeee.

Can’t wait for my sister’s baby to arrive. We just got a shocking news that Jocyee’s baby is apparently…a boy! In week 24, the doctor still confidently tell her that its a girl mana tahu when she went to scan again, the baby decided to  ‘change sex’. My sister said its possible that initially the testis will not descent. When they do, it will be very obvious. So congratulations again to Anthony and Jocyee. You guys will have a swell time searching for new baby names =)

sigh, back to work.Some photos of what we did just now.

yeah, we were just about to have dinner =P

yeah, we were just about to have dinner =P

Dinner!

Dinner!

Don’t give up. The joy of the Lord is my strength. =)

see you, world!

. . .stressssss. . .

no more happy post until i hand in my assignments.

Just two more weeks of torture jiunnli, just two more weeks.

Important truth about communication; Meanings are in people, not in the words we use. I can say, “I love you” but do i really mean it?  How you perceive the meaning of those words are no within my control. As Combs and associates (1971) suggest, ” The discovery of meaning can only take place in people”.

Meanings are in people, not in their words nor action.

Profound. very profound.

No more books left in my uni’s library. Have to go raid Monash tomorrow.

” For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity but of power, love and self-discipline”- 2tim 1:6

Had a long day at Uni. Well not that long la. I spent my morning in the library looking for books hoping i could have a head-start of my first assigment due in aprill. Alil tired and i am tempted to take my afternoon nap but i had an appointment with Joshua. Need to catch up after 3-4 months being away!

I’ve changed my blog template suddenly because i feel i needed another ‘fresh’ start. Again, another decision has been made and this time, i’ve never been so proud of myself. Spring-cleaned my blog abit and tah-da. It is as if new and probably more organized and neater this time, well maybe not =)

I had awakened a new sense of freedom and in each passing day i knew where this gift comes from.

I will come back with photos the next round =)
