A new day has come


OK, I admit that channeling Celine Dion is a bit melodramatic, hehehe... but I wont sugarcoat the fact that it does suck big time for not being successful in getting the scholarship for further studies. All those months of planning, filling up forms, begging for referees and preparing for evaluations and interviews... all for nothing. Also, I honestly feel that my work performance since the beginning of the year is so-so at best, considering that my enthusiasm for paperwork and forecasts had waned while thoughts of lectures, libraries and lounging at chic bistros for (supposed) study group sessions get stronger.

Anyway, I could have wallowed deeper in self pity had I not being reminded that this slight misfortune is nothing compared to the real tribulations faced by others. That it is all but a slight bump in the long and winding journey that is LIFE. Even better, in His infinite wisdom, there may actually be a lesson to be learned here somewhere...

So thanks to my friends for cheering me up over the weekend. I really had a great time. As for my study plans, I may try again next year depending on the circumstances... so don't count that blog entry from Bond Street flagship store out just yet! hehe...
