it's been a long time since i last updated. a few things have happened.
my handphone was finally put to rest (traded in actually) some time at the beginning of the month. which meant a lot of missed birthdays (at least 5 december babies that i rely on my phone to keep birthday dates straight on), missing contact details and quite a few embarressing 'thanks for the well-wishes but who's this please?'.
also today is the first day in a long time that i've been on the computer. first because between exams and chemo there's really not been enough 'feeling well' time that i can waste on this time sucker. been kind of a rough few weeks and have been quite the bear with a sore paw. thankfully everyone has been gracious enough not to tell me to stuff it and get over myself already. really looking forward to service this sat. it's been quite a while.
thinking about 2007 drawing to a close. usually the end of a year makes me more introspective than i already am. this year so much has happened, yet so little. paradoxical. i feel like time has passed yet it's also stood still. i feel like i've progressed with God yet at the same time i feel like in certain ways i've not moved at all.
dun really know how to begin a new year doing so many familiar things. but am going to start thinking about all the great things that i have to be thankful for in 2007 and start looking forward to a new year of health and blessing and challenge.

thank God exams are over. hope to clear at least 50% of the papers so dun have to resit all but am really glad to be over them in any case. super unmotivated.
thank God for colleague who was so supportive and willing to let me bounce my half-baked answers of past year papers off her. and who shared her cheat sheet with me. no, we weren't cheating.
thank God for 'small' blessings. babysitting a mini yorkshire terrier while my uncle is away. cute fellow though got the heart of a mouse. saw himself in the mirror in my living room, thought there was another dog in there and was too scared to retrieve his toy.
thank God for parents who drive me to and from exams and put up with my grumpiness all the time.
thank God for family and friends who ask so little yet give so much.
thank God for good weather the last few mornings when i had papers. means keeping dry instead of wet and cold.

really liked this song
performed by tim mcgraw. lyrics here
. was watching a rerun of american idol this morning. the season with melinda dolittle. just liked the melody, the quirky lyrics. watched tim mcgraw and wife faith hill's duet on some show, think it was ellen. vocals were amazing.

i hate not knowing stuff. today's paper was a disaster. didn't know half of the things that were asked. the other half that i did know i mixed up so i'll be surprised if i pass. sigh. well, there's always next year.

came across this website for books: http://yasubooks.com/
. they're running a free-delivery with no min purchase promotion within singapore till 5 jan 2008. prices seem reasonable and some are even cheaper than what you would pay at say borders or kino. books range from christian to business to fiction so worth checking them out if you already have something in mind. might save you a trip. payment is buy bank transfer.
