A belated happy new year and lunar new year to you, beloveds!
I can`t believe it`s already almost the end of January - MADNESS! :O
Hopefully y`all have kept consistent with whatever new year resolutions and such set for 2012 :) I am quite behind on some of the daily Bible readings (one of my resolutions is to read through the whole Bible this year http://www.biblegateway.com/resources/readingplans/index.php/2012/01/01) but I`m not giving up yet ><! Apart from this I have no other resolutions..
Frankly, I don’t believe in “new year resolutions”.
The best day to change or try is TODAY. In fact, it`s the ONLY day to change. I`m sure y`all have heard “tomorrow never comes”.. If you leave something for later you`ve already failed in not even attempting, and if you`re unable to discipline yourself today what makes you think you can discipline yourself tomorrow? =_= *HYPOCRITE STATUSSS*
So to keep from being an utter hypocrite lol, I will resolve to eat healthily (no high-sugar drinks, fast food, limited general junk food..) and exercise (dance and stretch :D). FROM TODAY. For at least.. a month. :O T___________T…..
Recently, all that comes to mind when I look at my body is “what the fuck..!” and “when the fuck..?” lol..
In all seriousness I`ve been worried for a while I`m already well into the developing stages of type 2 diabetes mellitus, so I should go for a blood glucose check and really cut down on my sugar addiction…
Maggieee if you`re reading this I just saw your Green Tea tumblr, VERY inspiring thanks for following! <3 let`s keep each other accountable :))
In other news!
As mentioned in the last post, I got (with God`s ridiculous graceee) a Distinction in one of the high-fail subjects, and another great result in semester 1 of first year for another difficult subject.. and I was short-listed as a potential U:PASS leader for this year (U:PASS is a series of optional tutorials offered for high-fail subjects at UTS). I went for the interview and aced it (they told me I gave the perfect answer after each answer.. :/ I would have been a much, much scarier interviewer haha) and am going for a 2-day training workshop in Feb to see if I`m legible! :D
Reasons why I want this job:
1. There`s a side job I want in the future and this will definitely help me get there.
2. I will actually have to and will learn the course material this time. I honestly do not know how I managed to pass, let alone do well. Seriously God is too good.
I think the pay is quite low and it`s only 2 hours/week, but still. Really grateful and honored for the opportunity to do this! THANK YOU if you prayed for me during my exam period~ <3
Next bit of news/big news!
Speaking of exam periods.. As some of you will know, I auditioned for the Avance Global Auditions a couple of months ago.. during my exam time haha. It was a 9 minute singing, rapping and dancing fail video (LOL. it`s ok. just laugh with me.) that you amazing people brought up to 1000+ views, 66 likes and 5 dislikes :) I honestly didn`t expect such support and I am so grateful and embarrassed!!
Last week I was contacted by Avance Entertainment and offered a sponsored placement in one of PDI-EPAA`s summer courses in London, LA, NY or Toronto.. But I have made up my mind to decline.. :((( T_______________T
AS MUCH AS IT`D BE AMAZING AND A DREAM full-time learning/practicing nothing but singing and dancing as well as other entertaiment skills (from people who probabaly know what they`re talking about..), the cost isn`t completely covered since it`s not a full scholarship. Plus I`d have to pay for flights and accommodation too - so in the end it`s a luxurious day-dream I can`t afford…
I might regret this later on/all my life hahaha but.. there`s nothing that can be done. I`m sure another opportunity will come around :P and the truth is.. I only tried in the first place because I thought they would fly final round auditionees to Seoul or Toronto like other Youtube audition programs. That way I could see you beloveds in Korea or Canada for FREEEE BUT NNNOOOOO hahahaha so yeah. Maybe next time. I hope you guys can support me even MORE because if there IS a next time, I`m gonna make sure it`s not an embarrassment. AND WIN. FORREALS x_____x hehehe. I have since deleted the video so pleaseee delete it from your memories ^^;;
I LOVE YOU GUYS THOUGH….
I don`t think everyone who I want to read this will read this (grammur fayul) but sincerely, THANK YOU <3
That`s all the main stuff from me, let me know how you are!~ :)))
