Stress. It’s one of those things that take over your body and soul. It stops you from focusing on what needs to be done. It stops you from staying positive. It stops you from being happy. When stress takes over, it’s as if life can’t get any worse. It’s as if it’s you against the world. We’ve all had that experience before. ‘Terrible’ doesn’t...
Stampede 04/05/13. Joys of jumping into an ice path, splashing around in mud, and climbing amateur obstacle courses. Last but not least, running through wires with supposedly 10,000 volts. The best part however, was probably breaking all the rules and making our own obstacle course with the crippled!
Last Thursday marked an end to quite a significant part of my life. I completed my last shift at Ohnamiya after working for 4 years and 4 months! To quite a surprise, it did not feel like my last shift at all. I don’t know whether it was because I rushed off to Iron Man 3 as soon as I finished, or whether it was because the owner himself didn’t even know that was my last shift until 5...
Relay. Perhaps commiting to my goal resulted in a compromise on the enjoyment factor, but nevertheless, I’m glad I persisted through the pains and strains. No matter how insignificant, I intend to pull through with each and every future goal I set myself. My life, my rules.
A new found interest to give back to the community. Who thought it would be so rewarding? Wheelchair for kids, what an inspiring organisation.
To not just tolerate others who are different to you, but to truly appreciate them for their good points, and respect them for that.
After a week of somewhat stress, the talk to finally over! Though there are always room for improvement, I’m quite content with how it turned out :) Striving for New Experience. I needed this as much as everyone else tonight. I hope that I will always be out there to try new things, and to learn new skills. I want to keep growing as a person. I need to.
Old friends. Its so amazing because regardless of how long the separation has been, the moment we open our mouths, its like nothing has changed. We’re all still good friends, we’re all comfortable around each other, and we’re all able to have a great time together like back in the days. The even more amazing thing but, is that even though the friendship is the same, each and...
What I love about experience, is that it is such an honest thing. Never regret something that once made you smile.
Though I joke around saying I’m pretty much an Arts student, this semester is actually pretty important to me too. Its my last official semester to get straight HD’s for the first time! I want to be able to tick that box pretty badly haha Who would’ve thought I’d have a late night studying with an energy drink for a Chinese dictation test? lololol
Beginning of 2013.
It’s been a while since I last posted. The idea of this is so that I can one day flick back and reminisce on all my experiences and feelings that were significant in various moments of my life, so its time to get back into this! ...
It’s only human nature to ‘want what you can’t have’. With exams only two days away, my mind seems to sway away from the papers at every opportunity to think about all the other things I would rather do instead of studying. If only I could just lay on my beanbag, and do… nothing. Aaaa, the excitement for the holidays!
The tiredness of my arms reminds me of the wonderful experience I had tonight. Joy. Pure joy.

Had a productive day, ending with my favourite way to reward myself. What more could I ask for? :)
The generosity and kindness of others never fails to make my day, or in this case, night!
Getting ready to tick another item of the list :) I hope it will be a fun-filled show experience!
3:02am I’m tired and semi annoyed cause there is one part of this assignment I keep getting wrong. There is one guy behind me playing dota, his constant clicking is really doing me no favours. I want to two foot you in the face. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9j86MwIpAY&feature=related
I may not understand the full complexity of the situation, but I do know that it is all a part of your plan. There is always, always light at the end of a tunnel. ————————————————————————————————— ...
A day initially 100% dedicated to study ended up as an entire day of chillax’in n laziness. Once in a while, to put all stress aside, and to simply relax is quite a nice feeling!
Its nice to see others display such maturity, even with all positives and ideals aside, this seems promising.
Once again, I’m reminded that in times of need, I have a handful that genuinely care for my personal well-being. I’m forever grateful to have such wonderful individuals in my life.
A part of me just want to relax now that the most stressful part of this semester is over! Another part of me though, is telling me to keep working hard to make up for some of the very average marks I think I got in some exams… I think I’ll stick to the latter.
So much to tumblr about, hopefully I still remember my thoughts and feelings after the 21st.
Remember as a child how happy you were just splashing in a puddle, how time stopped when you were lost in your imagination, and how deeply connected you felt in your mother’s warm embrace? Time may have passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel tired and disconnected. Those child-like sparks that feel like distant memory can be recaptured. Live your passion, take time out and...
Happiness comes from tapping into our inner wellsprings of passion and purpose. It doesn’t depend on perfection, it comes from seeking things that have substance and meaning. Even small changes can have an immediate impact on our lives! :)
Nothing is perfect in the human world, and perhaps even through time and practice, perfection is still something too great for us mere humans. There will always be disagreements, and there will always be conflict in life. However, perhaps one way to survive in this imperfect world is through developing the right attitude. Through believing, and through wanting to make the right things happen. The...
A simple word of praise can lift a heavy heart. It’s appreciated, comforts and reassures. It makes the giver a better person, and gives the receiver hope and faith. It’s usually reciprocated, and gives life greater purpose.
They say opposites attract, but what if you’re opposites in something really important to you?
Hold onto the people you have now, because its not about when you’ll need them. It’s about when they’ll need you. That’s whats important.
What comes easy won’t last. What lasts, won’t come easy. ————————————— and this is why I try.
The wrong decisions in life. Mistakes are not necessarily a negative to your past, because only through regret and feelings of sorrow, do you really understand what you want to appreciate, and what you want to strive for. Every mistake in the past has been a lesson learnt, and I hope that every lesson learnt in the past has made me into a better person. Though difficult at the time, without...

What did I do today? U know, just casually saved 3 lives, nothing that special. but on the same topic, I really want to donate plasma next! Get a few more plasma TV’s out in the market…
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. “Who would like this $20 bill?”[[MORE]] Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air. “Well,” he replied, “what if I...
Because I’m tired, I can’t focus. Because I can’t focus, I sleep hoping that my mind will freshen up for the next day. Because I sleep, I lose time to do the things I need to do. Because I don’t have enough time, I compromise on sleep. and because I compromise on sleep, I get tired. —- Downwards spiral, negativity to the maximas. …when did this start...
One of the greatest gifts you can offer someone is your trust.
