Yr4 Sem1 2011/2012
A lot of things happened. Good. Bad. Fun. Not-so-fun. Seems that I've grown a lot lately.
I shall not go into the RH Concert- Happealy Ever After because I wrote about that right after concert ended.
Studio. It's the first official landscape studio I've had so far. How was it? I got to say I've been adapting. Slowly. With concert on hand, I got to say it was really difficult. My tutor treats us as a master student (technically, I am still in Yr 4), expecting a lot from us, a superwoman herself. Nonetheless, I tried my best. The results? Not as good as I expect it to be but not as bad either. I've known a whole bunch of girls plus a guy whom I'm gonna stick together until the end of Yr5, caught a glimpse of what landscape truly wants, still don't know how to make a nice landscape model, less procrastination, more objective and work more.
Hall. Concert aside. I've made quite a bunch of new friends, mostly my SETS members. Quite an outgoing bunch, funny, always making me laugh, well angry too at times. Being a final year is really weird, it seemed that we are always in our own little world. Final years sticking together with whoever we have left in hall. Things happened. Friendship strained. Some managed to pull back together some not. Maybe final year is the year where you can see everybody's true colours. Everybody is busy with their FYP while I am busy with my studio work while the Yr1s play and laugh the whole day. Irony but true. Thank you so much for always coming into my room unexpectedly, making memories that would bond us together. Thank you so much for asking me for meals together even though I am seldom here. Thanks for all the random ice-cream outing!
Church. This semester due to commitment levels in school. I haven't really been attending cell group meetings as often. Yeah, initially I really did felt really bad. I don't know why, but it just didn't felt right. I thank God I didn't let it affect me so much until that day in The Upper Class Retreat that I finally released that I shouldn't always feel short-changing Him because all-in-all, it is Him I am living for. Do not let anything pull you down, as long as you gave your best. I really thank God for S35. I think writing to church 3years back was the best decision I've made so far, because now I got a spiritual family here in Singapore. 3 years, not too long, yet not too short. These people had kept me in-check with my spiritual life. Thank you for all the craziness! Thank you for always being so supportive! Haha. Even though I know you guys don't really read my blog.
This semester, I've challenged myself a lot. Taking in things that I thought I can handle but turns out to be more than what I can handle. Time management is still in a mess, which I have a lot more to improve on. Stretching my limits, balancing my life. Social, academic, spiritual, physical, family. It's all about finding the balance and putting Him first no matter what. It's always difficult to step out of our comfort zone, but once you do, you will realise the things you've miss, and the satisfaction from the things you've thought you couldn't never do. This is so far the most satisfying semester yet!
Be anxious for NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING by PRAYER and SUPPLICATION, with THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known to GOD
