To You, Thank You:)

Posted in Uncategorized on August 29, 2013 by Michelle Kwek

Been thinking about all the days you were 
Right by my side 
Been thinking about how you never 
Left me behind 
And all of the things that you said to 
Help me ease my mind 
And I don’t know where I’d be 
Without you in my life 

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Now I just 
Wanna tell you how much 
I appreciate your love 

[Chorus]
So I’ll be there when you call 
Pick you up when you fall 
And if you ever get lonely 
I’ll be there in a heartbeat 

This song is for you 
For everything we’ve been through 
It’s been so long overdue 
I just wanna say 
Thank You 

[Verse 2]
Been trav’ling this road for so long 
We’re still going strong 
Cuz without you here I’d be nothing 
Nothing at all 
Even when times were bad you believed in me 
And now I’m standing tall 
And I just wanna thank you 
For sticking through it all 

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Now I just 
Wanna show you how much 
I appreciate your love 

[Chorus]

I know it’s not easy 
but you were there from the start 

I’ll take the kindness you’ve shown me 
share the love, and the strength 
(Pay it forward) Be all we can be 

Thank you by Jason Chen

forget the past, live the present, anticipate the future.

OHMY, just saw the timetable for this whole sem:/ im in shock:O haahahah how am i going to survive M2:/ like i told my neighbours, m1 to m2 is like the p4 to p5 jump for math, from 4 problem sums to about 15 if i remember correctly. now problem sums represent topics covered and MEQs. hahahah going to dieeeee!!

anyway, happened to chance upon someone’s blog yesterday and read through al the related posts… and also started to think a bit.. yepp, the pain from the break up still stings, the pain still does linger.. Nope, it’s not that I want to get back but it’s just the regret, regret of not knowing what happened, what went wrong, how things ended up like that. not that we are on bad terms or anything but we aren’t normal friends..:/ and that hurts. 

relationships are so scary. from strangers, to friends, to partners and then BAM, you become 2 people leading separate lives and some may even hate the sight of each other. why must some relationships end up all sour, unable to talk to someone whom you could once share everything with. 

relationships are so fragile. they require careful management.

and that is also why relationships are so precious. 

the person who is able to make you forget the past and bring smiles to your face could be the very same person to plunge you into a world of darkness, causing you more hurt than the previous one.

BUT do not let the past affect the present or the future. Do not hold back just because you fear history repeating itself. Trust. 

So much to be glad for, so much to be thankful for.

As holidays come to an end, maybe just one post to summarise everything before I emo about the start of sem:(

in one line, this was how i spent my holiday: in hall taking care of the injured boy, pre-trip prep, OCIP Laos, KEWOC KEWOC, KEWOC retreat, medicamp war-games, KEWOC KEWOC KEWOC, councillors’ camp, actual KEWOC.

What’s up next: KEWOC AAR, flag, rag (support), JCRC retreat and TADAH, 12 aug.. school starts:/

this holiday feels weird, probably because i didnt go on any overseas trip with the family:/ hmmm, this is really quite unusual but ohwells, i only have myself to blame since i was the one who couldnt take time off:/

KEWOC has taken up the bulk of my holidays. one-of-a-kind experience i would say. proposal versions 1.1, 1.2, … 2.5, 2.6, recce after recce, dry runs after dry runs and it still could be perfect. but i guess not being perfect made it fun and challenging. the actually kewoc almost immediately after KEWOC was just nonsensical i would say. just the councillors’ camp left us, okay maybe just a few of us, drained, stressed, overwhelmed. unsure what we would face us during the actual camp, the many “strangers” that we would be meeting and needing to interact with. the 2 camps gave me an average of 2.5-3 hours of sleeps for 6 days straight causing me to be emotionally vulnerable yet having to put on a strong front in the presence of others.

29th july, i felt a sense of liberation. on one hand, i felt empty and sad that there would be no more daily early meetings, seeing the kewoc-ers, talking cock, ransacking the kewoc room for our logs.. on the other hand, i was really glad that i was no longer an OHL, a programmer.. I was just one of the many uni students trying to enjoy the last bit of holidays.

but through kewoc, i’ve learnt the importance of rejecting, saying no to others though till now, i havent mastered the art of doing so heh:/ striking a balance is one of the hardest things but if done well, it could turn failure into success. also, kewoc has made “rekindled” the reason why i chose to stay in hall for one more year. all the friends that i have made, that i can just cry in front of and look all unglam, can swear together with, can enter a room all emo but within 5 mins, sounds of laughter overwhelm the room. 

people i love (as friends) and would like to thank: tim, zixuan, borray, naresh, si hong, charlton, kaixiang, weiteng, avery, shuting and junjie (actually im grateful for everyone in KEWOC)

people i especially love and would like to specially thank: huiming and celine for always being there, ever so concerned:) teehee my neighbours, looking forward to a fun-filled year ahead but at the same time, im going to turn into a mugger!! MUAHAHAHAHAH

and the you there, always waiting for me, no matter how late i stay in the kewoc room till settling the logs, comforting me when i myself didnt know what was going on within me, always making me smile, and just being there, giving me the energy to carry on:) thank you thank you thank you, for being you:)
