hi, not that it would be inappropriate to post it at a more 'solemn' cyberspace but just thought it'll be nice to pop by blogger once again.
anyway the recess week is here, how time just flew past like that.
From feeling rather empty and upset over the finland trip, till bouncing around life till now..
Nice things have happened, sad things have happened as well but i guess that's just life?
I think staying in hall made me realise a few things. but most importantly, it made me realise how important my family is and how much i really treasure them. Each and every one of them. Previously, i have never consciously made time for my family. But this time, i know it's different.
And then it made me think about my parents. If i feel that i'm growing up quickly, it could only mean they are growing old real fast. And even though they can really get on my nerves sometimes, i can't help but be so thankful for all the love they have showered me with. It's not a given that every parent should and will love their children so much.
But i'm beginning to see the obvious in many many ways. For all that they've provided me with, for all the heartaches they have to put up with. Maybe this is why sometimes while diverging from the path of solely pursuing academic excellence, i wonder if that's a right choice.
Because i want my parents to be proud of me. In some ways, i kind of know that seeing your children attain success within their own definition makes them really happy and proud.

hi, rare first post of 2014 (:
when i go back to read my posts which i posted back in those days, i cringe! but i guess that's all part of growing up.
now that i'm certain no one reads this.. this could be a secret blog ;)
since the last post, things changed, things remained the same (:
but somehow when ask to summarise everything in a word, all i can think of is 'floorball'. i would think everything i do minus school is floorball related hahaha! i'm really glad i even had this tiny interest during PE in sec sch or else i would probably never get to know this amazinggggg sport. Even though i admit i kind of miss playing tennis and maybe table-tennis.
But so many things can be associated with floorball. My most extreme emotions on a happiness scale. There has been times when it can get tough to get out of a emotional wreck, but somehow, things always end on a good note (: i would attribute to the company. I've been truly blessed with kind people around me. and i'm not just saying this because i think people are nice nice. But they are genuinely such precious people and you know that no matter the number of thank-yous you can ever say, you can never thank them enough.
Hc floorball- seniors and batchmates. 2 separate journeys but each gave me their unique memories that i'll always hold dear to (:
even juniors. now that my roles kind of overlaps because i'm also coaching, but it's such a wonderful thing to be from the sidelines looking at how each individual grow, and how the team come together, the whole journey is just wonderful
st margs girls (: these girls will always hold a special place within me.
nus floorball- as close friends would know, i take considerable amount of time to open up to people. but i'm glad this was a team with people i grew to appreciate. short but memorable times (:
now you see what i mean when i say floorball really gave me so many things. not only has it taught me about the essence of team sports, life lessons to deal with shit and to get back up, but it gave me so many wonderful people that has been or are continuing to be big parts of my life.
and when you do get to meet people like that, thank yous never suffice, goodbyes are surreal and the best thing is the warmth that touches the depths of the insides that you would feel different had you not meet these people.
To the good handful that i really appreciate, i hope the best things in life happen to you!

Hello! I'm so bored in Starbucks. Today is not a productive day for studying D:
Anyway, long time no see! HAHAHA. This is like totally abandoned alr. Sorry poor blog hahaha!
My profile is totally not updated. Hahahaha! 16+!? I wish I was at that age though (:
Life has been kind so far. Maybe that's because I don't come here to post when I'm sad. If anyone still visits here, I will confer you the 'loyal reader of a non-existent blog' award! hehehe.
I actually have another blog on LJ. But even if I were to provide the link here, it's a locked blog so no point also la. It's just another side of me that is not always so happy and full of thoughts. So you can do away with the misconception that 'Shannon is always very happy!' Hehehe! I'm an old soulllll~ with unhappy thoughts D:
I think I'm a bit incoherent already. Ok, yay, my sister decides to leave Starbucks alr. For the past 3 hours, I think I only read 3 pages -.-
Byebye, see you soon, blog (: I've missed you hehehe

here goes the video (:

it's been long since i last posted here. if anyone still reads this blog, i only post on blogger whenever i'm using the computer even though i have the app in my phone.
read a pretty thought-provoking article. sometimes i have no idea why i'm so private about my thoughts but everytime i'm upset, i feel a need to isolate myself. like the other day..
maybe now i feel a little more "open" but then something happens, i retreat into my shell again.
the past few months have been kind to me. no school stress and whatsoever, but everytime some things will trigger the "one year ago, i was..." "one year ago, i felt...." "one year ago, this was me"
coach shared this video on facebook and it did conjure some thoughts within me. but i'm just wondering, will there be an impact? after watching it, will i just accept that society is too hard to oppose and just conform and be one of the rats in the endless rat race
now that i have some responsibilities, i think i cant YOLO that often anymore. it used to be ,"dont care, just whack, deal with the consequences later" but now my actions will have great repercussions and things build on things. sometimes i wish i didnt have to restrain myself so much. just go with the flow~
I've never shouted at people so fiercely and loudly as far as i remember. i really dont want to do it. but some emotions just cant be easily controlled and i guess the important thing I've learnt is to be honest with how i feel. It always feels like a challenge, and if i can get drained, i darent imagine how it is like for coach.

the contestants are supposed to give thanks on thanksgiving.
too touching, never teared so much while watching x factor before ):
i know no amount of thanks is enough to thank all those that has been by my side. but from the emotions i gather, thank you so much for everything.
thank you. i received your letter last night (':

HOW CAN ELLA HENDERSON BE ELIMINATED!!!! saddddd): she's so good! i want to hear her singggggg):
Oh, my my how beautifulOh my beautiful mother
She told me, son in life you're gonna go far
If you do it right, you'll love where you are
Just know, wherever you go
You can always come home
Oh my my how beautiful

He told me, son sometimes it may seem dark
But the absence of the light is a necessary part
Just know, you're never alone,

Have you ever wondered
How much I think about you
Have you ever wondered
How much you mean to me
Have you ever wondered
How much I really love you
Have you ever wondered
How much I really care
Faces all around
But all I see is you
But all I hear is you

woah omg! i just went to stalk my archives this year and seriously i only have not more than 20 posts i think! HAHAHAHAHA!
september hols are ending! monday, prelims will continue. jiayou everybody! same sentence: you are never alone (:
hearing some music now and taking a break! ohh, last night i went mad! probably from the lack of sleep, hahaha! but somehow it feels good because it has been some things i meant to say (:
but when i woke up this morning, i thought it was a dream for a moment! HAHAHAHA!
cause everything starts from something
But something would be nothing
Nothing if your heart didnt dream with me
if only people could believe in their abilities more, the world will be a tad little better
