Hello.

Its been about two months since I last posted...? School, as in academics, became a lot more busier after recess week. And amidst all the projects and assignments, I found myself to have greater passion for real estate. :') Till now though I've yet to find a suitable internship (I rejected one which wasn't what I was looking for just earlier today) and I hope to find one by this weekend!! It is also my fault for not putting in the effort to send out resumes, partly because I feel that I cannot compete against my smarter, more eloquent peers. But I'm not gonna waste any more time!! Part of the reason why I gave up my summer programme (1 month in Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea) was to use this time to gain more exposure as compared to my peers. That being said, I still want to get out of Singapore before the next semester. That's what I've been telling people, 'I wanna get out of Singapore!!! Anywhere also can, just out of Singapore omg.' There's actually two possible plans in place, aka I have a destination in mind and people to go with but the sole issue is whether I can go overseas with my friends. Let's hope I can and if all goes well... a week of well-deserved summer trip before school starts hehe :>

Caught two movies post-finals!! Age of Adaline (Blake Lively is such a goddess omg <3 and though he wasn't a lead, Anthony Ingruber is another good-looking guy too omg <3)




SWEETHEARTSSS AWW
And then there's AGE OF ULTRONNN hehehe omg I'm just super happy to see all them Avengers on-screen hehe love them SOOOOO MUCH :') and their awesome interviews omg just a bunch of grown-up babies <3

Sometimes I wonder if I'm ever gonna switch to Blogger again. Hmm... Probably not this year ahahaha.

Anyway.

School started 2 weeks ago and I'm still adjusting. It was pretty bad, considering I'm busy with dance practices and party planning I hadn't gave school much thought. Not forgetting my horrid results last semester I honestly don't know how long I can keep going, keep being this optimistic that life will get better, that it wasn't a mistake to get into university, or to even pursue a junior college education in the first place. But I'm just gonna keep holding on to this strand of hope that it wasn't all that bad. Good things did occurred over the past few years. Among many small defining moments, I met wonderful people, I found passions in areas I never thought I would. I got out of my comfort zone and was no longer that invisible girl, that immensely socially awkward girl people avoids, that wallflower no one bothers to look for.

Because everything is built on happenstance.

And I am grateful for where I am now. Yes maybe even academically. Maybe not being offered a slot for exchange is the chance for me to spend more time with my family. Having stayed home after a year of hall for the last semester made me value my family a lot more. I guess that's what happens when you mature; you notice the ever-increasing strands of grey and wrinkles, you value and understand their kind intentions beneath their scoldings, naggings. Things you never care for as a teenager.

On to less gloomy stuff!!

I went for Junko and Nishi's waacking workshop with Nic despite mia-ing for waacking open classes at Mel's for the past few weeks due to CAC+us practices but omggg my passion for waacking just gotten bigger. I even, unwillingly, took part in this 'cat war' cypher-like thing with another (zai) waacker (who I don't know at all) in front of all the other skilled waackers ok I must have looked like a joke :'( But Nic said what I did was a legit cypher so thankfully it wasn't that baddd?? I hope... Ah well what's done is done. Hope to only get better from here:)

CAC+us '15 is happening in a few weeks' time and I'm pretty psyched for it hehe my family will be coming down to watch though I'm only in 1/2 of the item... But this CAC+us event was always more for the juniors anyway!! I hope it'll be a memorable experience for them like it was for me:)

Lastly, having been to Sherie's and Gilda's birthday parties, both of which had their own unique elements, whereas I had only just decided on my theme few days ago lol, I am abit behind time. Gotta get the catering settled soon cause it's probably the peak period since it's just before CNY and decorations decided and ordered and that takes time too oh no good luck to me guys :<

Hi there!!

So in summary, I felt that 2014 was pretty good to me in the sense that I:
1
1


  1. Entered KR Hall and got a taste of life in that hall and also grew quite abit there

  2. Went for CAC+us 2014 and leveled up

  3. Started partying and it was pretty enjoyable ahahaha

  4. Had my first ever battle and although I screwed it up, I'm glad that I didn't back out

  5. Went for funk committee interview at a whim and got in

  6. Fully utilised my summer holidays at camps and made a whole new bunch of friends

  7. Took up performances during the holidays too and leveled up a little

  8. Signed up for waacking course during the holidays too and gained a newfound passion for it

  9. New haircut and received alot of praises for it LOL but on a serious note, thanks everyone for lighting up my day with your kind words:')

  10. Greater passion for real estate course too

  11. Managed to survive a hall-less + committee commitments + projects-filled crazy term

  12. Overall, became a lot more appreciative of friends and family alike. Guess this is what happens when you truly grew up; you start to value those around you more.

-----
So as 2015 begins, it's time for those New Year resolutions. Looking back at the new year resolutions I've made in the past (2013 and 2014), I would say I did pretty good sticking to them thus far:

2013
: improve skin complexion, be less socially awkz (hey I think I did improve... HAHA)
x: exercise more (other than dance) and eat breakfast (lol look at the time I wake up everyday man...)

2014
: prioritise yourself, smile more, cherish friends and family
x: have kinder thoughts, join a marathon
*the rest idk where to put them ahaha

Ok anyway, for 2015, here goes:
Be fitter. Really. I am aware all along of how unhealthy I am, refusing the greens and even going by a day or two without water. So for this year, I am really gonna try to put in effort to be healthier. But baby steps la guys ahahaha. Let's hope I really get to join a marathon some time in 2015.

Travel overseas. Given that exchange programme is now out of the question due to my lousy CAP, I've been aiming for summer programme... Hopefully I'll get a slot. I really really really want to travel overseas. Everytime I bring up the topic with my parents, they'll say things like, very expensive, no money (even tho there's budget airlines and stuff lol) and my friends rarely put the traveling into action. I'm guilty of it too, cause more often than not, I'm the one who's likely to not be able to make it for the trip due to my parents. But hopefully being 21 this year will allow me to do things I truly want to. I've also set up a travel fund with a small jar to start saving up... HOPE I FULFIL THIS RESOLUTION hehe

Have kinder thoughts. Yeah if you realise just abit further up, I didn't manage to fulfil that in 2014 (aka yesterday... LOL). Through some bad times last year, my mind was mainly preoccupied with horrible thoughts and I'm trying to change that. This isn't easy and definitely takes time and tremendous effort on my part.

Anyway, I kinda feel that 2015 will be my year (somehow) cause well, my birthday is 15-02-2015 this year (almost symmetric(?) la LOL) and YES its the coolest date in the whole of this year hahahahaha #suchdelusion #wtvman So point is, I'm gonna make this my year too. Yep, 2015 here we go!!

Hi there.

Just a brief update on my life. So recently... -looks thru insta- Yep, had another stayover with the funk comm at Jianyu's house again!! It kinda turned into a photoshoot thanks to the batik pants Nic got us from bkk ahaha welfare jiu shi welfare. But the free size pants are like just nice for him so... can you imagine it on me HAHAHA #shortpeopleproblems


This Christmas I spent it with three wonderful girls.
Christmas Day itself was spent at Yy's house with Yy, Hj and Ly, preparing a late Christmas lunch (rosti + cheese sausage + salad + egg + tea) with alcohol (I forgot whats it called) as some after-meal treat ahaha. Thinking of it now makes me pretty hungry omg it's really good but just a little unhealthy probably yeahhh. The tea was kinda to offset the fats... HAHAHA
2
Then just yesterday (Sunday), I met up with my RE babes for a belated Xmas celebration!! Basically we just had a (pretty last minute) Secret Santa. It's pretty last minute in the sense that we are still confirming if we are meeting up yesterday on Friday night, then I asked if we're gonna have SS as we initially was to have. Then names drawn, wishlists made, and woots, last minute shopping on Saturday LOL. I was immensely thankful for living in Tampines because there's just 3 malls beside one another and a freaking pasar malam just beside the MRT station (not forgetting the pushcart stores at the interchange).
Ok anyway. After I bought the gift I went to meet Aliah, Mabz and Char. The guys were supposed to come too but they cmi... Full attendance soon I hope!!:) Great catchup with Aliah too ahaha and the Ice Cream Shop (yes thats its store name) nearby was cheap and affordable too as compared to other ice cream shops nowadays. Even though the weather's pretty horrible these days (unless you're indoors then that's another thing altogether ahaha) but its the company that matters still!!:)

1
Onto yesterday's SS!! We're kind of guessing who is who's SS cause all of us said 'it's (the gift) damn obvious' HAHA. So while waiting for our food at 18 Chefs', it was relevation time!! So exciting ahaha I guessed mine correctly!! It was Sherie hehe and Yx guessed me correctly. Glad that she likes the gift:))








This holidays have been nothing short of exciting and fun. Great end to 2014. May 2015 be better.

So here's a proper post to sum up all that that has occurred since the end of finals! The uni clique went to this ramen restaurant for a (well-deserving...?) feast ahaha where we pretty much just chatted for the next few hours. -inserts zen emoji- Then there's the sleepover which was hard to come by. Why you may ask? Because even as I'm almost 21, my parents are still as restrictive/strict/conservative/etc you get the gist. Sometimes I believe its the oldest-sibling syndrome, because my friend's (with two older brothers) mum is super chill about her going out etc. Other times I think its just my parents. Either way, I really want to get out of Singapore too but that's unlikely. Then there's the impromptu shopping trip with liying hehe and dinner with her and yuyun yesterday. Huijie can't make it tho cause she had her submission today but its ok we will all meet together soon <3 Oh and I've also been catching up on OUAT and omg it is so gooddd But surprisingly I'm #teamswanfire now ahaha as charming as Hook may be, I still don't see it between him and Emma :/ #teamrumplefire too but most impt of all... #teamrumplebelle hehe ultimate ship on OUAT <3

Then there's the 21st birthday which I've started to really plan ever since finals ended. Ok tbh I started in early November if I'm not wrong. That's when I started to finally understand the attractiveness of Pinterest HAHAHA. But there's just so much to consider. Hopefully I can get my friend's function room then I wouldn't have to turn to chalets because honestly... there's nothing special about holding it in chalets given that I've been there often when I'm in secondary school. There's also me trying to be accomodating to others' preferences (or what I think they prefer) when, like what my sister said, ultimately it's my party. As spoilt brat as this may sound, it is true. I don't wanna wind up feeling sad after it all when I realised got my priorities mixed up. On a related note, I will be putting up a proper post after the party on all the things I did for mine because when googling, I realised that most blog posts are by those who earn by blogging, aka they usually have sponsored, if not discounted, stuff like cake, catering, photobooth, etc. There are a few, but little posts of those who are like me, middle-income group. So yeah, will do up a post by then!! Hopefully all goes well by then:)

Among these, there's still dance practices for the upcoming dance performance next year... just 2 days from my 21st party HAHAHA. Just hope that my party planning won't go haywire with all the dance practices and school (when it starts in Jan)

Since the finals had ended, what better way to start off my holidays with this hehe
Seeing that I'm unlikely to have much time over the next few days so I decided to rush this out. It's almost 3.30am here and I'm finally done :')

So here's my entry for Round 54 of lovebites20in20:

Today is one of those 'meh' kind of day.

I've been in some sort of moodswings for the past few days to which I blame it on my period. #fthormones Interpersonal skills already reaching a new low as a result. So many things on my mind:

Dance. Like, yeah I get that I'm slower and more inflexible at times, and I have a lot to work on (and really blessed to have so many kind souls helping me out) but its still depressing to fail/see little success from my point of view. People told me that I had improved, but not to my desired extent. Yes I get that any improvement is still an improvement and I actually am trying to live by this 'dance to be better than yesterday' line but today is simply one of those melancholy kind of day where such small leaps in skills amount to almost nothing to me right now. Studies-wise, try as I might, I will at most be that (hopefully) painfully average kid. I can only fervently pray that I will not be those who help to cushion the bell curve. As for relationships, I'm still a blob of mess; as undesirable as ever and still still still regretting over lost opportunities.

When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just clutching air and grit. That’s why you can’t save it all up like that. Because by the time you finally see each other, you’re catching up on the big things, because it’s too much bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.
