Early morning in the classroom

I'm sitting in the exam classroom. Bowen is sitting behind me.

Looking at the situation, I have the urge of just abandoning the exam classroom but my conscience refused to let me do so. There is only me and Bowen. Despite all those talks about letting younger people take over the 'taking over' of the classrooms, it ended with me and him. Thank God for Ian who was there beforehand to chope the classroom. But now it's only me and Bowen remaining in the classroom.

What does this say about the NUS ministry as a whole? Will I see a day when the younger ones are more enthusiastic to chope the classroom than the graduating ones? People continue to sms me asking if I'll be back in the classroom. Honestly speaking, sometimes I really feel like threatening people that I will abandon the classroom altogether. Think it's just that I dun wanna see people taking people for granted. The last thing I ever want to see is a situation when people come to the classroom and start c…

A time for everything

Stressed up. In the midst of staying overnight in school so that I would not be late for the project simulation on 8am, Wednesday, God spoke some poignant words into my heart.

'This is what the LORD says: I am going to bring disaster on this place and its people, according to everything written in the book the king of Judah has read. Because they have forsaken me and burned incense to other gods and provoked me to anger by all the idols their hands have made, [a] my anger will burn against this place and will not be quenched.' Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard: Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I have spoken against this place and its people, that they would become accursed and laid waste, and because you tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD. Therefore I will gather you…

Rekindle

Heck, realised that I have missed out a number of years of chinese pop music. Think it's time to go to the CD shop and start updating myself on pop music. Actually, I'm falling back in love with Jay Chou's music all over again. Been listening to the old collections. Felt so engaged with his music. Feel like going back to the world of KTV again. Maybe after the exams.

Nearing to the examination

Everyone's excited. Practically everyone in Singapore here whom I have talked to and have followed the US election is excited. Why? Obama won by the landslide. I was in lecture when Dr Quek was showing the live results from time to time. Moment after that lecture ended, Obama won. And I thought that was fast. Talk about a swift victory. In 15 minutes, he rose from 200 electoral votes to 300 plus.... Yet, amidst all the hype, although it's good riddance to Bush, it remains much to be seen in Obama. Winning election is one thing, doing your job as a President is another. LBJ, Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush have been examples of this. I reckon that it will take another few months, till April next year to better assess the Obama administration.

In planning and celebrating birthdays for people for the past and the next few days, God has just told me to continue show unconditional love. It's a bit difficult to do that. I need to admit. But today has been a satisfying day. I'…
