what's left
Thursday, 31 May 2012

It's June, as crazy as it seems, half a year has passed. And looking back through this first half of 2012, everything seems so distant

You know that feeling that you get when you wake up with after drinking the night away? That horrid feeling of being hungover, with your head spinning and last night seeming like such a blur? That's how I feel at this point in time. I can't seem to remember what I've done, I can't seem to remember where I've been. I know I have achieved a lot but I just can't seem to remember anything. It's like I'm suffering from amnesia of some sort.

I'm just tired I guess, tired of the things I see around me, tired of how I have chosen to live for the first half of the year. And I don't want the second half of the year to be like that.

Declaring June holidays to be off limits to all things unnecessary. 
Only going to focus on things that are important, people that are important.

only hope
Wednesday, 30 May 2012

There's a song that's inside of my soul. 
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again 
I'm awake in the infinite cold. 
But you sing to me over and over and over again. 

So, I lay my head back down. 
And I lift my hands and pray 
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours 
I know now you're my only hope. 

Sing to me the song of the stars. 
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again. 
When it feels like my dreams are so far 
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again. 

So I lay my head back down. 
And I lift my hands and pray 
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours 
I know now, you're my only hope. 

I give you my destiny. 
I'm giving you all of me. 
I want your symphony, singing in all that I am 
At the top of my lungs, I'm giving it back. 

So I lay my head back down. 
And I lift my hands and pray 
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours 
I pray, to be only yours 
I know now you're my only hope.

Random snapshots from the past few days.
My calendar that I got as one of my ROTY presents which have I have been using ever since I've gotten it really serves as encouragement for me every single day and the "Love It" tramp stamp that I got from TYPO, cause little things like this make my day. My stash of highlighters/markers which are really important to me at this point in time because of all the exam mugging that's going on. My new favorite ring from Diva which I got a week ago as well as my newest arm candy, a brown "vintage-esk" watch which was a total bargain from chinatown. And last but not least, a picture of me in bed, doesn't show how sick and miserable i feel, but trust me, i feel like death.

Today's just one of those days.
One of those days where I don't feel like my usual self, the girl that is all excited to face the day and to conquer the challenges that are in her way. All I want to do is curl up at one corner of my room and cry and feel like a complete failure. Really am so tired of everything and the worse thing is that I feel like I'm losing control of everything. Maybe that's the point of all of this, for me to lose control, to learn to trust God for all the plans in my life. All I want to do today is to spend hours lingering in His presence, for  Him to fill me once again and to restore what has been lost.

a little slice of heaven
Friday, 25 May 2012

This is what happens when I'm stuck at home for the entire day working on elearning assignments, I'll whip out my dearest slrry and snap a few shots here and there. It's not much, cause I'm still learning how to work my camera, but one small step at a time. Photos feature my lunch which consists of strawberry yoghurt and honey oat granola which I swear is heaven in your mouth and the gorgeous fairy lights that I have entwining my bed frame. 

Till next time .x

Have really been getting into this whole trend of "thrifting" recently, blame it on my massive obsession for fashion and wanting pieces that are trendy, cheap and unique.  Had a failed first attempt at thrifting when I headed down happily to Salvation Army Family Store at Woodleigh wanting to haul some stuff and it turns out that place only carries old furniture. Decided to give it a second try today when I found out about a thrift store in Hougang Central, was pretty disappointed when I went there cause the place looked so run down and frumpy and the clothes looked like things that I would never ever wear and I was about to give up and head home when I thought to challenge myself to see what I could get out of it. Turns out after about 20mins of digging through the piles of stuff, I managed to get myself some pretty neat items.
Rainbow lines top $8, Velvet Pullover $5, Knitted Top $9, High Waisted Shorts (DIY) $5

Super excited for all my clothes to be washed so that I can start wearing them :)))

Confession 150512: I'm suffer from a severe form of wanderlust.
Sighhhhh I'm such a travel buff, always dreaming of new adventures to go on, always dreaming of jumping on a plane and flying away to some amazing destination. Can't wait for the day where I can finally jet-set around the world freely to see new places, to gain new experiences.

Just received the OIP + Purchasing Trip details and I am just overwhelmed with excitement. 35 days in Shanghai/Xiamen with the IBZekkies & then 4 days in Hong Kong/Shen Zhen for purchasing purposes all part of my course of study. All the stories from the seniors are running through my mind, their stories that depict the wonderful memories they had there and all I can feel is this surge of adrenaline running through my veins. I can't wait to experience everything for myself, so that one day, I'll be the one sharing these stories instead

a tired mind
Sunday, 6 May 2012

The past week has been such a blur, memories of the whole week reduced to just a few moments floating in the back of my mind, bits and pieces that's all.

The one thing that has not been able to leave my mind is this whole issue about relationships. In all my relationships, friendships or more, I look for authenticity. I absolutely detest hypocrites, people who claim to care,  people who claim to be something they're not. I only want people who truly devote time and effort to build on our relationship, people who truly love and care me. I'm glad to let certain individuals in my life go especially when I feel like the relationship isn't worth it anymore and I'm much happier this way. Much happier

Don't just promise me with your words, prove them through your actions .x

Lots of ♥, Cheryl

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
