So this is what it feels like...

I had my last exam of uni ever this morning. How am I feeling? Happy/excited/sad but happy more than anything else :) It's quite a big thing - finishing uni. It's the end of being a student/kid and the beginning of being a proper grown-up, and being fully responsible for myself and independent. Right now, I'm still in the transition period and it's not easy... How does everyone else handle this crazy rush of emotions?

Having said that, the enormity of this event still hasn't fully sunk in yet. Hopefully it will... Tomorrow...

Haha :p

Killing time, waiting for my Big Bang Theory to download. I should have been studying, but I turned on the TV just as I was having breakfast and 'Prince of Egypt' was just starting. It's been a while since I watched an old-school cartoon animated movie and watching 5 minutes of this was enough to get me hooked - brought back so many childhood memories. Now, I kinda wish I could turn back time and be 10 again. Being grown-up is too much effort.

Download complete! Off to watch my BBT, and then back to studying about steel fracture and pre-stressed concrete... funfunfun :p

The Light - Sara Bareilles

The morning comes, heaven sent a hurricane
Not a trace of the sun, but I don't even run from rain
Beating out of my chest, my heart is holding onto you
From the moment I knew
From the moment I knew

You were the air in my breath filling up my love soaked lungs
Such a beautiful mess intertwined and overrun
Nothing better than this, and then the storm can come
You feel just like the sun
Just like the sun

And you say
It'll be alright
I'm gonna trust you babe
Gonna look in your eyes
And you say it'll be alright
I'll follow you into the light

Never mind what I knew
Nothing seems to matter now
I'm lost without you, I can't do without
No one knows where it ends, how it may come tumbling down
But I'm here with you now
I'm with you now

Let world come rushing, come down hard, come crushing
All I need is right here beside me
My love I swear it
Take my love and wear it over your shoulders

And if you say
It'll be alright
I'm gonna trust you babe
Gonna look in your eyes
And you say it'll be alright
I'll follow you into the light

Random, but I was just thinking - "What's the best advice my dad has given me?"

"Don't put all your eggs in one basket"

Soooo truee - it works all the time!

Yes, it's that time of year again - assignments... I NEED to be panicking right now if I want to produce good assignments and have them finished on time! Sometimes panic is a good thing?

I could do with some right about now...

To Make Average Great

So, I was having my healthy lunch of chicken soup with tofu and choy sum, and watching Oprah (yes, I watch Oprah!), when I heard this quote. Everyone's already probably heard some variation of it by now, but I like it so much that I'm going to post it here anyway:
"When you make average great, your dreams become a reality" -Suze Orman
The hope and optimism embodied in this simple phrase - quite overwhelming (and perhaps slightly idealistic?). Now to brainstorm ways to make my average great... Hhmmm...
