A fresh start

It has been 2 years since I last posted. 2 long years.

It’s really interesting how time flies without us ever realising it. Those childish posts as a 22 year old and now an almost 24 year old. My birthday is coming up in a matter of 10 days and if my dad didn’t mention it to be just I wouldn’t even have remembered.

One thing is for sure though, I think I need this space back to sort out some of my thoughts and just as a place for me to share the photos I take on my travels and when I’m hard at work slogging away in Singapore.

Two years. That’s a really long time.

In that time Timmy got into an accident, survived with a hernia, we got together officially, made the downpayment for our flat, graduated, started pre-reg, survived pre-reg and now I’m working as a licensed pharmacist.

Too much has happened and maybe I’ll have time to update once in a while:)

Till then,

Love, Jane

Clearing the cobwebs

20130402-092407.jpg

It’s been kinda long since I last blogged.
School has really been taking up all my time and it’s just study study study, especially since my boyfriend (we’re not gonna be official for another 3 months due to us being obedient to some church rules) is really focused on studies which makes me focused too.
I haven’t even watched a single episode of Taiwan drama or running man since the sem started!
Quite proud of myself lol.

I have so many things I wanna blog about.
The two holidays I took, CNY, carpenter and cook and so many other things!!!
But i can’t get started on these meaty posts when I have so many tests and presentations to study for.
I mean, finals are in 4 weeks!

Seriously, where has time even gone? I feel like school has only just started and yet now the semester is almost at the end!
It’s really so freaky>.<

I want to go to so many places, take many pictures, share it to everyone
I want to live my life to the fullest!
Really feel so sick of studying now but I know I have to soldier on.

Need to keep telling myself "YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS YOU!!!!!"

All the best to all uni students!!!
We can all get through this!!!!!
And continue, to fight for our dreams.

love,
Jane

Priorities

I just thought about this topic – priorities
I think this is one of the things that can ruin things in a person’s life if care isn’t taken to get the priorities in the right order.
Which would you place first?
Your family? Your job? Studies? Hobbies? God?

I think setting our priorities straight is something that has been much overlooked by people and I guess it requires a constant self reflection about what we are doing at the current moment and whether it follows our priorities

I just self-evaluated and I think that I should work harder to set my own priorities straight.

My list looks something like this now
1.God
2.Family
3.Church
4.Studies
5. special someone
6.Friends

I think many people will question why church and ministry ranks below family and the main reason that is is because we can’t ever just get caught up with work and forget about what matters most.
Family is important, really important
Many families break up because the dad or mum has spent too much time at work or busy earning money and that causes a rift in the family cause not enough quality time was spent with each other.
It’s easy to say that parents are earning money so the kids can benefit but more often than not, kids just want their parents to love them, spend time with them, guide them on problems that they need advice for.

Let’s take the time to reevaluate our priorities in life and well, lead a more balanced and happy life:)

Jane

It’s the third week of school

20130130-213112.jpg

It’s the third week of school now and the first CA is just round the corner.
School has been exhausting to say the least… Then again it was never easy, just that this sem, I have four 8am lectures and a 9am lab on that 5th day.
Trying hard to sleep by 11 but well, that has never been easy.

I really wanna thank God for everything this sem though.
My year started out with a bang and i think I have a smile on my face everyday:D
Life’s good.

Was just walking to lab this morning when I realized that the back of my heels all had blisters fresh wounds on them and it really hurtttttt!!!!
But I saw this beautiful sight in front of me (the picture above) and that lot a smile on my face instantly. And I thanked God.
This led me to think… Do we still want to thank God through the moments when we are down?
Will be still be willing to praise His name?
I guess we really won’t ever know but it’s at the point when we are at our most down that we should really make a conscious effect to give thanks to God for whatever good He has given us.

Typing this in my new iPad mini:D

I promise I shall blog about Taiwan and Beijing at the end of February!!!

Shall go and do my tutorial now:p

Love,
Jane

Smoggy smoggy day

20130112-175632.jpg

20130112-175640.jpg

Yesterday, the smog in Beijing was supposedly the worst it has been in a year – yup lucky me because there had been 2 weeks of clear skies before I arrived.

Today….. IT WAS WORSE.
Sigh>.<
Now as I look out of the window, I can hardly see the apartment block opposite.
Yes, it's that bad..
And well, no one seems to know where all this pollution is coming from…

But anyway, I'll be heading home tomorrow to warm weather, clear skies and you.
It's funny how someone can worm their way into your heart even though it's only been a short amount of time.
It's funny how whatever anger or frustration I feel at that time or towards you just melts away when you appear.
It's funny how you make me smile… A smile that comes from my heart.

Thank you Beijing for welcoming me here,
For allowing me to have no queues to clear customs when I first came,
For me to experience you in a real different way, kinda like a local.
Thank you for having such early nights that I've had the most relaxed holiday yet!
Thank you for pandas, yes, pandas!

I don't know if I'll be back again but thank you all the same:)

And tomorrow, home is where I'll be,

Love,
Jane

想念

思念是一種很玄的東西 如影隨行
無聲又無息出沒在心底 轉眼 吞沒我在寂寞裡
我無力抗拒 特別是夜裡 想你到無法呼吸恨不能立即 朝你狂奔去 大聲的告訴你

願意為你 我願意為你
我願意為你 忘記我姓名
就算多一秒 停留在你懷裡
失去世界也不可惜

願意以為你 我願意為你
我願意為你 被放逐天际
只要你真心 拿愛於我回應
甚麼都願意 甚麼都願意 為你

Reading through the lyrics of this song at this current moment,
I really think that they make so much so much sense to me.
Right here, right now.

Love,
Jane
