The week of hopelessness(is that even a word!??!)

The block exam week,
How stressful can it be?
Hours and hours of studying,
reading, and memorising tirelessly.

I wish i was doing that...
(as Yoda puts it) doing that, I should.
Instead I'm on the computer,
Thinking that I'm well and good.

But how should i know,
How well i should fare?
I've done next to nothing,
Should my harvest be bare?

But luckily for me
I'm a good boy!
I studied beforehand
And now i can relax and enjoy!

(I'm making this up,
just as i go.
I'm really bored here,
If you don't already know)

Miracles DO happen!

Maybe I'm crazy, but i think you can take lessons out of sport and apply them into life. On wednesday night/thursday morning, I saw my two beloved teams win their respective matches. The maroons won state of origin I, after leading 19-0, then going down 20-19 at the last few minutes(due to some dodgy referee calls), but a miraculous drop goal brought in extra time, and Bowen scored an intercept try to win the match. I was suprised at how that game turned out, and i was so happy that night! About 5 hours later, i watched my beloved liverpool team play the Eurpoean Cup final. They were down 1-0 in 50 seconds, and 3-0 down at half time. I was so depressed, but deep down, i had a feeling that my team was going to come back. Miraculously, they fought back, with a sensational 6 minutes, where liverpool scored 3 goals to tie the match. The game went to penalties, and my goalie pulled off 2 fine saves to win the european cup. This is living testimony to mircles! never has a team fought back from 3-0 down to win a final. If you apply this to life: You could be down and out, back to the wall, but if you persist, you may be rewarded. If you are on a high, and life brings you down, dont get all angry and sad, but persist, and you will regain that high again. If you persist, anything can happen, but if you give up, nothing can happen. Persistance pays! (amen to that!)

Nifty Quotes

"Some people are so special that once they enter your life, if becomes richer and fuller and more beautiful than you ever thought it could be."

"Love puts the fun in together...
the sad in apart...
the hope in tomorrow...
the joy in a heart."
Exam countdown: 6 days
Stress levels: Chaos
Well Being levels: not very well...
Thought of the moment: Will I ever get through this storm in one piece?
Hope of the future: that whatever happens, we will all be friends forever :P

the snowball effect

Again its that time of the year, except this year it is way more crazy and stressful! This term is proabably the make or break term and next term is the stupid qcs(which i hope my school fluke good marks). Anyway, i think i have hit one of those 'snowball effect' times in life... one problem hits you, then the rest come too! First problem that came up was assignments, then came all the exams, competitions, my driving exam (which i passed luckily), queries if i should do UMAT, thoughts about future careers, and other private issues hit me in instantaneous fashion. why does this happen? i guess the only light is that there is someone up there pulling the strings for me, and all i can do is 'know' that i am being taken care of, and the things that happen are all meticulously planned by the big guy up there... i hope i pull through...

a sleep deprived joshi~

My True Family

Today I have visited both the pinnacle and the deepest trench of my life. The highlight was my friends that came over for my birthday party. They all have contributed so much to my life, and since I feel that i am a people's person (i like being around people that genuinely care and are friends with me). thats a great feeling. The low of my life are some of the problems in my family. I have communication problems with everyone in my family (probably cos of age diff) and there are times when i am emotionally so low that i just want to run away. Thankfully, I have never gotten to that point, even though i get frustrated a lot, and when i am thinking properly, i know that my family cares for me even though on the outside they are all grumpy and naggy. However, what has kept my heart and soul going is my greater family: God's family. These people always put a smile on my face, laughter ringing in my ears and the feeling of care that i am blessed to have. These people are my real family, with my direct family, in the family of God. I am grateful for these great people, who sometimes give up their time for those they care for. Today, I was very upset because of these family communication breakdowns just before my party, and I was feeling the worst i have in the past 3 or so years. However, my great buddies that came to my party cheered me up, put a smile on my face, and like magic im on a high in my life. These guys are the best. You know who you are. THANKS LOADS!
