Ending the Semester with JOY

The semester is OVER!
So happy that holiday is here!
Christmas... where will I be?
In the land where I can finally sing Let It Snow for real without being ironic.. hehe..

When I looked back, I am amazed at the journey I took this semester.
So many ups and downs, but in the end, JOY kicks in to give me strength.
It's worth it, you know -- all these toils and hard work.
What matters most is the process anyway.
How we managed ourselves despite the tribulations.
How we finally made it to the end.
It's worthwhile to know that at the end of the day,
a huge widespread smile draws across our faces.

I've been through a lot just this semester alone.
Thanking God for the days He gave and the strength to endure it.
Thanking God for the people surrounding me.
No matter how annoying they get sometimes,
I still need them to mold me.

Just watched The Bucket List.
Heard this profound quote about living a worthwhile life:
(In the movie it was said the Egyptians were asked this when they die to decide where they would go.)

"Have you found joy in your life?"

"Have your life brought joy to others?"

Think about.
Your life would not be worth living if your life is not full of joy and giving joy to others.

What a good question to end this semester and the thought for this year.

This is my final performance poster. If you wish to come, please do. All is invited and it's free too!

Ending of a Semester

I have been MIA as I am ending my final year 1st semester in NIE.
This semester is actually my LAST full semester in here because next year, I'll be attached to a primary school for 10 weeks before my graduation. That is super long, but I can't really think about that yet.

I'm rushing assignments nowadays. This week is the craziest week as I have my final performance and my other assignments to hand up on the same week!!
So yes, RUSHING.

Meanwhile, I tried hard to still have social life outside school. It's not working properly right now as my life at this time revolves around school or schoolwork. So social life = school friends.
As long as I get to meet people everyday, I think I'll be fine (SO HIGH I).

Anyway, I can't wait for my holiday!! It's soon, it's soon! Nov 13 to be exact! Wheee!!

Til then.
