'ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you'. (Matthew 7:7)
i can't help but agree with the verse from the bible. it just popped into my head. God promise us and he will keep his promise if it is according to his will. he is a faithful god. he has been answering my prayers. thank you god. he is such a loving god who works in ways we can't see. he works miracles. come ppl come to know our great god.
i m so happy, finished my hpe essay. it seemed much clearer todae. not as confusing as the other nite. the other nite i was panicking like crazy. also sorted out adapting with lee-ean. din realise we only had to pick out one article and write a summary abt it. was reading through every single reading and taking notes. boy do i feel stupid. oh did i mention i finished my hpe essay?? LOL. feel so much more relieved. another load off my shoulders coz no need to get dinner for someone. haha..
gosh, hope i m not falling sick. been coughing since yest. not now, after assignments den fall sick pls. long day todae. tried out the job xiaojing recommended. first day not too bad. the gals n boss there very nice n friendly. wow, almost wanted to give up on getting a job. hopefully can keep the job to keep me occupied during the hols. first time working n earning pay, feels great. hv to save money, coz i feel so bad for spending so much. waiting for juen to come out n my turn to tk a shower n tk a nap. going to be a long long nite.......
i feel so so exhausted still. i dunnoe abt wat. dreading the upcoming assignments. argh!!! dunnoe where to start from. i feel like holiday, feel like slacking my day n night away, doing nothing. ok not nothing, else i'll be bored to death too. i miss having heart-to-heart talks with my frendz. well, all these nonsensical thoughts will be in my mind when i m having assignments due. but had a gd rest for the whole of sat. as i had told jess, i m so disciplined when i comes to resting, really did not start on anything. if only this can apply to my studies. had a gd dinner at aaron's place yest, had marinara pasta, complete with dessert. i muz say he really cooks well, everything frm scratch. haiz, guys in ocf can cook so much better den gals. alwayz having this conversation abt guys cooking better den gals, wat to do?? will learn from the guys one day when i am inspired. anyway the nite ended with drinks at koko black with grace.
feel like slacking.........tt's wat i had been doing, or rather have been doing. cannot, discipline discipline!!!
a tough week. been rushing the arts assignment. ws supposed to finish our individual one by thur, n start on grp one, but only jess finished. poor jess had to wait for us. i really feel very bad. had a long long thur, rushing thru our grp work. it was really great, our 'travel pole' was fantastic. most of it done by jess once again. thx jess. thx lee-ean. hope our effort paid off. well this wk's life is really bad. more assignments to come. can hardly wait for holidays to come. yest after sch, wanted to slp straight away, but was hungry, so ate first n slp (yes i know PIG, lol). slept for almost 2 hrs, went go get heater with grace. out first ever heater in melb, rite grace. haha...had dinner with her n aaron at this singaporean place on swanston. nice ppl there. can't talk properly the whole nite. think was talking nonsense during bible studies. then serene did not help me out, but kept laughing at me, too much lah..well, i will talk lots of crap n feel high when i dun get enough rest. no need to get drunk to have tt feeling. gd thing too, coz i can't drink. now back to the real world, hv to start on hpe or adapting. not now, tml....
well, i dun feel refreshed at all after the slp. feeling more sleepy. nothing can be done, have to stay up and try to do as much of the arts as possible. if anybody wants to keep me company, pls do, i will appreciate tt very much.
well slept over at grace's place last nite coz it was too late to go back. watched Mystic River and Girl with Pearl Earring over at aaron's place with the grp - grace, toh sin, alvina, jean, geraldine, yi chuin (hmm..shld be tt's all). both were gd movies, but slow, really slow. oh well, shld learn to appreciate it. had fundraising lunch in church for ocf july camp. and in the evening went to Retro to celebrate sarah, ren haw and david's bdae. well, was a little disppointing coz din get to see the 21st ppl getting sabo-ed. haha, apparently it sort of happened after tt. scary lot of ppl here, all this sabotage thingy for 21st. gd thing i will be safe at home for my bdae. but can't wait to see someone get sabo-ed next yr. heh.
2 weeks of placement is over in a flash. still rem the time when i was so worried abt it n all. it was really gd, i had enjoyed myself a lot with the children. of coz i learnt a great deal too. haven got my results frm my supervising teachers yet, but i think it is the company of chn which is important. anyway robert brown is my uni supervisor. jennah and i were worrying that it would be robert roe, luckily it is robert brown. heh, nice guy. the children were really funny. they kept asking if it was my last day. i had to repeat myself so many times. i had some trouble settling some chn, and this gal helped me by saying it would be my last day, so let's be gd. so sweet of her, haha...yup the sweetest thing is tt during their free developmental play period, the girls made cards for me. they were bascially the same, as in they got everyone in the class to sign the card they made. so i had more than 10 cards with the signatures of all the chn. yah some of them made individual ones. even the more playful boys were saying things like they would miss me, can't believe they would say tt. oh well, this kids are really great n missing them already. this little guy kept asking if i had seen jackie chan. constantly, non-stop, every lesson he would ask the same qn. but i alwayz din ans him, keeping him in suspense. actually shld had told him todae. haha...he prob thinks every asian has seen jackie chan. went over to grace place after placement and had dinner with aaron before going for ocf.
updates for the week: weekdays: placement, tired everyday tue: watched hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy with grace, toh sin, aaron n his frend the movie has no storyline, it is juz funny funny without any sense. too artistic for me, muahaha...the funny thing was tt grace n toh sin were supposed to be watching kingdom of heaven, but it was sold out, so they had to watch this movie with us. haha, sorry guys, it's juz too bad.
ok i will put everything aside for the weekend, ok at least rest for sat, and finish up my evaluations for the last day and get started with assignements.

today's the earliest day i got back, reached home at 4.30. for the past 2 days, had been staying back for staff meetings till 5.45 and 5+ respectively. i was just sitting there like an idiot half falling asleep and dunnoe what are they talking about. wanted to run out so badly. today was great. everyday had been gd except the first day as i hv totally no idea what was going on. the kids are wonderful except a handful as usual. easy group of children, unlike my other placements where ther kids are so noisy. jenny and chris are nice and helping me out. the only thing is that they din really give feedback like my last placement. hmm...oh well, hopefully things are going on smoothly. off to complete hpe essay and start on my lesson plans for tml.
sermon today was really very gd. i liked it a lot. i actually understood the whole thing n david walter was really gd. after church went shark fins hse to celebrate wai may's 21st. the food was gd, had a gd fellowship, heh...yup everything gd =)). nope she haven got sabo-ed yet. after lunch, we 'went' home while wai may n others went for gelati in the park. we were already there waiting to give her showers of blessings. wasn't very successful coz it was hard to break those bags of water, but she got wet though. not many ppl join in. i tried but wasn't successful. the balloon ws too big and she ran too fast. haha..after tt the 'fun' began. aaron poured water on ruth n he ran away, far away n escaped. they tried to run after him but lost him. so they came back n we mingled for a while n decided to leave. aaron's bag was taken away the ruth they all. apparently he msged me to get his bag but i din see the msg until like very long ltr. felt quite bad abt it. but too bad lah. haha...after tt things turned out ok lah. went to meet juwen to get it back n me, grace n aaron went for dinner while toh sin went for his party. had really interesting conversations over dinner about BGR. lol. so complicated. gd talk though, made me so confused. haha...overall today was really very gd. had fun n gd fellowship.
