but for now, the bed beckons - no white sheets but im going to get white sheets next time, i heard it helps with better rest. and im left with "in all that he does, he prospers" - how do we interpret this with the little information i have? everything seems to be reading into the passage our own pre-understanding and notions.

seemed like yesterday where I bought my favourite fried chicken for dinner before my nt Class, and seemed like yesterday where I felt so overwhelmed at work and had to go back to finish my notes and Justin came to pick me and cheer me up! but tomorrow is Wednesday again and time for my next lesson! its actually 2 more classes and I'm halfway through - time truly flies. before I know it, ill be officially one year into my job!
I feel like perhaps - I've committed to too many things too fast too soon that I'm not getting enough rest/me time/time with God. so I'm trying to be more intentional about it now! But Singapore is truly just hectic in general - sometimes I think I'm caught up in the mindset that in order to be productive/make the best of my life I need to be constantly doing something.. :/
in one year, I've started work, started a relationship, settled back into church, settled into a cg (still ongoing), started serving with the youth, started bgst, signed up for mpc, started running again, healthserve. One mg and one mentor. on top of adjusting back to family commitments and rekindling old friendships. that's a lot for me..
so after going through the motions, I think now is the season to rest intentionally. so for that, I'm thankful that j has a work trip coming up! I'll miss him but it's a good time for me to rest a lil more. ^^

so before we strive even harder, before we begin on an endless chase for something better, ask ourselves why. our motivations, our heart - search it deep and ask why. im not saying its wrong - but dont lose sight of what is most important.
this morning i had a conversation with a colleague about how i could have done more for one of my p. initially i was pretty affected as it seemed like i did something "wrong" but after a while, i was thankful that it was a good learning experience for me. after all its still my first year out and i was wondering about my plan for that p as well. i was also reflecting on the decisions i had made. so im glad that someone can provide some insight into the matter(:
that being said - there is always this inner battle at the back of my mind about this whole xx thing. I know it wont be settled anytime soon but I think its going to be one of the longest journeys ive ever taken, shouldnt think so much now and enjoy my 'youth' while i still can! as much as im excited for new phases of life - but im also reminded that its not going to be easy and there will be a lot of
more work & responsibilities.
alright tonight shall be an early night again! just one day of work and im all ready to just roll into bed.haha
goodnight world x

so many things have been happening - Singapore is indeed too eventful, I need to learn to say no? and I'm tired so I'm just gonna sleep. Thankful for tomorrow's public holiday!
thankful that Sunday - Justin is getting baptised and his entire family has agreed to come! This is a first for his dad since I've known him so it's really a prayer answered.
There is too many things happening and my quiet time is suffering. block out the noises of the world my dear. but family, boyf, and church is enough to keep me occupied.

|our mocktail called Cinderella! (:|
we (especially j) really liked the feel/ambience of the place - he kept raving about it and how he really wanted to come back and stay here in the future! if we can - after we get married in the far future haha
we headed to underwaterworld after - and enjoyed a show put up by these pink dolphins & sea lions!
|taking touristy shots with the merlion! just like two months ago when we took a photo with the merlion in front of fullerton.|
