Beginning life as a student once again!

Last week marked my first week back to school! Sounds like some students that have just finished their sch hols and have head back to the classroom... but if it is so... mine is a gd 8 years of hols... haha....

it seems to be a lil' awkward as I stepped into a classroom with unfamiliar faces... all adults... no kids... no growing teens... and we are all studying after work.

4 hours a day, for 4 days... one module to complete and understand... I thought that this will be a piece of cake but I was wrong. However, I knew that I need to learn to revise smart and work hard! (cos me ain't any smartie... I'm the work hard kind if u know what I meant...)

My lecturer is a UK lecturer but lecturing in an Aust school... I was kinda trying to connect the relevance but it is just tt...

He's a doctorate and what I felt was that either I was too rusty or he was just too high level. But I think it was most prob a portion of both, which made the learning experience quite challenging. But you know something, after taking such a long long break from school, and knowing that learning ain't going to be any easier, I told myself that I need to put my best into this.. give God my best and work with the Lord's wisdom. Work will not be any easier but I think God can help me anyway. So, trust Him.

All the past 4 days were good, learning and absorbing new knowledge like a sponge. Just that I fell sick for my Sat n Sun. I filled my Starbucks paper bag with loads of tissue papers... My nose was working real hard again... drip.. drip... drip...

So now, rest up n be ready for work tomorrow!! Challenges ahead... so ganbatte!!

studying and yet not

I'm trying to force myself to go through my Consumer Behaviour textbook in my office now but yet, I can't concentrate! Can't deny that technology is quite a distraction for me! ha!!

Just read Shirls' latest blog entry and somehow was reminded of my childhood. I didn't sell ice-cream but I helped my family to do some kind of gluing for the shopping bags that Takashimaya give out during Christmas... Perhaps, out of 25 pcs we glue, there is onlt a 30cents profit. But well, at least I know, my family was quite happy then.

I just thought that kids nowadays would have almost everything that we wouldn't have back then. But I forgotten that there are still those that are also in need, just as I was back then.

The entry of Shirls just simply blew me back to my past... woah! It is not just a story. It is reality. Perhaps, it is a reality check for society to work on giving and not just spending, sacrficial spirit more than selfish gains.

Thanks, Shirls. You got me thinking again. :)

In the midst of office move....

... I realised that I am missing a lot of people.

Somewhat, the misses didn't come just today. It has been for a while.

Bumped into a good friend recently, and we were both in a rush. Only managed to say hi. Nothing much after that.

I guess that the busyness of life has taken heaps of our memories away.

To be distant meant that friendships are even tougher to maintain.

However, I still believe that friendships are built upon love, grace and effort. It is hardwork.

Anyway, my office is moving to the old cockpit hotel. So if you are around the area for lunch or dinner, you may always drop me a call to see if i'm free for a meal or coffee. :p
