I feel like so much has happened in the last 20 days although I can only recall very little of it. In short, I finished assignments, studied for exams, attended a funeral, looked into starting my own home-based business and, of course, worked! One thing has come right after the other, giving me little time to really take a breather. But I’ve been constantly reminding myself to breathe and to spend time doing relaxing activities. So far, everything seems to be working out well.
First, lets talk about the Jabbawockeez. Let’s just say I’ve become addicted to watching them and they were the only thing that kept me sane over my exam weeks. They’re all very talented dancers. Beyond the technical aspect of their crew, I appreciate their humbleness. If I had to pick a favourite Jabbawockee, it would definitely be Phi because I love the way his body responds to music. I also think Phi is super cute and has the sweetest smile ;)
A very close family friend of ours passed away last Tuesday. The news came as quite a shock to me because Mr. Leung had always been very strong and optimistic over his cancer. But again, reality strikes when these things happen to remind us of how fragile life can be. A week before Mr. Leung passed, my parents came home with a pen for me. They had visited Mr. Leung and he insisted on searching for this particular pen to give to me. I regret not being able to thank him for it. After the last viewing at the funeral, I saw tears fall from my dad’s eyes for the very first time. Mr. Leung had become a very good friend of my dad’s and they often kept each other company at family reunions. This will forever change.
Mr. Leung was a very important person in my aunt’s life. He took well care of my aunt, loved my aunt, and loved her family as well. My aunt had one piece of advice for me: “Find someone who genuinely loves you because only then will you be happy. Don’t hang on to the ones who don’t love you.” For once, I actually believed she was right.
The exams went well and I’m pretty confident about the results of this semester. As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been considering a home-based business opportunity and it’s something I’ve been thinking about constantly over these past weeks. It’s a very scary thought because it will be a huge commitment of both my time and effort in an industry that’s still relatively new to me. Right now though, I’m beyond the point of feeling afraid to take this step. Through researching I’ve gained more confidence about this concept and I’m just really looking forward to getting things started.
