It’s 12am. Monday morning. I will be starting work again in 9 hours time. The past 2 weeks of break has been rather unfruitful. I watched tons of movies and facebooking for hours. On the bright side, I managed to clear my IPPT. Which means that I don’t need to go back for RT. The whole test was torturing. I always know that I not super fit but to feel the body fighting for breath and resisting every step that I took was discouraging. I don’t get it why some people can maintain their fitness level with the minimum effort yet I need to give in everything that I had. Okay. Maybe not everything. 80% perhaps. Well. At least I passed.
Crisis. There has been alot of talk about crisis. I personally feel it in my life. I won’t elaborate what it is. But I truly feel that a crisis is a turning point. Crisis brings opportunity. Crisis brings change. Crisis bring a understanding of who I am. There has been a lot of crisis in my life and even though it might not seems like one to you but I felt the heat. I felt the fears. I’m glad to say that despite all these things that happened. I’m still here writing all these stuff. So when I think back, and when I look at how much I have walked along this life journey of mine. Life can’t be that bad.
Love. I’m been thinking alot about love or maybe relationship subconsciously. That are some extreme point of views that I had which I feel that I shouldn’t had. Yet I can’t help but to think of it in that perspective. It might be because of the past. Or maybe people around me.
I can’t believe how monday blues is making me all cranky, writing all this stuff.
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley (1849–1903).
Check this video! It’s produced and directed by my fellow polytechnic mate, Vinn Bay & Kirill Tee. I used to do video production when I was in school. Of course, my standard was nowhere near Vinn and Kirill. Like what cowboy Caleb said ,I’m sure they will go very far with their trade. One of the biggest problem I had with video production when I was in school was talent casting. Talent casting is one of the most important factor in video production. But getting elderly like grandparents or even parents can be pretty challenging. The best we can do is to ask our parents or grandparents to act. And from what my experience, we had a hard time persuading our loves one to be feature. So most of the time, we would cast fellow classmates as parents or grandparents which obviously make the whole film fake. So kudos to Vinn and Kirill for their outstanding casting!
Ps: I’m thinking of writing a script and give a try again in film making!
I had an interview this morning for my application to Digipen Institute of Technology. The meeting went pretty smooth and the interviewer confirmed my place for Degree in real-time interactive simulation. It feels great knowing that finally I will be able to go back to school to upgrade on my analytical skills and of course to know more people.
I just changed my blog skin. I got sick and tired of the old one, so…………. tata! A brand new one! I’m having my holidays now. A self – declare one! Of course a holiday is never really a holiday when I’m stuck at home. I still have my mini projector rental business to run and my mum will occasionally nag me to help her in some of the household chore.
So far so good. I’ve watched tons Dvds and read tons of books.
One thing that I hate most especially during holidays is when my phone rang. I will jump up and get paranoid. Who? Who is looking for me? Or what? What happened? I hate answering phone. How I wish I have a PA to help me with that aspect of my life. For now, I just have top accept that this is part and parcel of life.
Don’t worry! I will as much as my ability still answer every single call and your call of course.
I always wanted to update my blog but laziness just got over me. The thought of all the hard work usually resulted in me surfing the net or Facebooking. 2010 has been amazing so far. I can’t believe that it’s already October! 2 more months to Christmas!
I think I haven’t mention over here that I pass my driving test! It was a tough journey. I wrote this last October on how I struggled to pass my basic theory and when I passed my Final theory in one attempt that I got so excited that I fast forward my practical lesson by using the internet to engage my driving instructor. Life is not a bed or rose. I under estimate myself and thought that within 2-3 months I can master driving and get my driving license with one attempt. I failed. I remember how demoralize I was. Thank God for friends like Daniel and Guo Han who came down to support me during the test and comfort me at the coffee shop when I fail. I took the test again, 2 months later. And I failed again. I was disappointed with myself. I couldn’t believe that I failed again. Add to the pain, I lose another $200. It was alot as I was in bible school then. Every cents count. I picked up myself and applied again. I took the test for the third time. This time I was so nervous. I couldn’t afford to fail anymore. The financial and physiological effects accelerate each time. It was be a drop from the sky if I were to fail one more time. The amount of pressure was heavy. Almost to the extend that I can’t bear. I calm my nerves and took my third attempt. I passed! By the grace of God as I didn’t put on my seat belt throughout the test. God must have blinded the tester. That was during may. It’s almost 5 months since I passed my driving test and every time when I drive, I always feel amaze and a sense of unbelief that a day like this has came.
