There goes another weekend. Only 20 more days left till I head back to ol' Melbourne. Fingers crossed that I can extend my stay for another week. What can I say, I enjoy being home and pampered by everyone. I'm a queen like that. Time just breezed by. It's been a month since I'm back. Too fast in my opinion. I'm looking forward to the new sem & classes thou, but the thought of not having my family there makes me wanna pull my heart out and boil it in soup.
I found a way to help me release all the suppressed feelings. Running (cues halo, shining light and sound effect). It's rather calming with the wind in my face and the sight of the pinkish-blue sky. I start at 6pm and it takes me an hour for my normal route. What a fruitful way to spend an hour.
Van missed her flight. Now I have an afternoon to kill without her.
Ah last week was tiring but I had so much fun at the youth camp. We were stuck on the bus in traffic jams most of the time but it gave us a chance to catch up on our sleep & figuring out the fuzzy wuzzy 'jokes'.
Met the girls in the night for a couple of drinks & to catch up. There's always something new to talk about when we meet & I really enjoy their friendship and company. Like Wanying, I've known her since I was 4. And cherie, I remember carrying my bag while singing the national anthem on the first day of school and she was the one who told me that I could put my bag down. Oh Grace, I used to turn around in class and deliberately take things out of her pencil case because I'm a bully like that. They helped me get through so much & spend time with me when I'm back here in Sg. Thank you babes. :)
Right now I'm looking forward to the return of my dear ol' sis.
Just 10 days back home and I've got to say, it's been rather eventful. Will be heading to indo in a few days' time. Am hoping that this trip will refresh my spirit & soul in ways I cannot express right now. Been hanging out with the girls, Mark and the family.
I've forgotten how lovely it is to surrounded by such wonderful people. I feel like I've grown during the time I've spent in Melbourne so far. Sometimes in the midst of daydreaming I wonder if I've made the right choice to study abroad and the many 'what ifs' came to my mind. I guess I took the risk and am glad that I did.
I'm all set right now to look ahead. Do things that will make my days fulfilling. I am stronger than I think I am. Here's to better days. :D
Some people can be really absurd with the things they say. Others can be quite careless with words and hurt you in the most insensitive ways. My choice of words to a certain someone made me realise that I could have been smarter with the things I say. Choosing to say something else could have easily changed the situation and where things are at right now for me. I've probably overdone it, so for now I am just going to back off a little. Give myself room for a breather. Give him space to think. I don't really know the point of this, but I think we should all think before we speak/act. Sometimes, knowing or unknowingly, we might say things that we'd regret & when we want to take it back so badly, it will all be too late.
Words, something that is so quick to come out of our mouths in moments of anger/impatience. But the process of healing the hurt caused unto someone whom you've caused the pain on takes so much and so long. It isn't a joke with a friend that you've mocked and quickly said 'I take it back' and all's well again. My lesson in this is to never be too quick and insensitive with the things I say. To handle situations in a calm manner and never out of impulse.
