another short update

hello I'm back! again! haha just wanted to post a really short update because most of my prelim papers are over, as of today, and the next 2 MCQ papers are next week! After 2 days of 2 back-to-back papers, I finally got a chance to take a breather in the form of indulging in a movie with my friends. We watched Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and I was really entertained!!! Haha, even though my friends weren't impressed, I enjoyed the movie lah haha it's been a long time since I watched one. :( I really want to watch Inside Out soon, though! I've heard sooOOOOOoOoOOo many good reviews about it hahaha!

Afterward, I went for dinner with Kai and we ate at Nando's! It was my first time there and the chicken is really quite yumz haha but not very friendly to the average student's wallet. It was quite impromptu and all but I really enjoyed dinner, and I felt so comfortable and happy just talking about anything and everything?!? ☺️ I haven't felt so free in a long while.

The week ahead continues to look promising because I'll be catching up with a few friends over the next few days!...and start preparing for my LNAT, (continue) study(ing) for the A Levels and of course, get back to the gym! (I've not exercised in 2 days and that's quite a lot for me now haha zzz)

Mid-Prelim update

Today marks the end of the...7th paper, and I have 6 papers left, spread over the next week. I'm definitely more confident and prepared this time round as compared to the previous CT, but there's something missing. I've been neglecting God in order to concentrate on getting as much studying and revision done. Straying from Him and offering cursory prayers before papers to ask for His help has...not worked out very well. I just wanted to post a little update, I guess, to remind future me of this period I'm going through if I ever happen to experience this again. Anyway, I decided to dedicate some time earlier this afternoon to refocus my life, reprioritise and set the direction of my life back to bringing glory for God. I'm still figuring out how to live my life for Him, though.

Other than that, my fitness regime/programme/whatever-you-want-to-call-it-thing is still going pretty well. I'm getting my workouts in and eating as clean as I can, avoiding binging on comfort food lololol. Which is slightly worrying - is this an indication that I prioritise my health/fitness over God?!? If I can make time to exercise, surely I can make time to spend time with Him! :/

Social life...is non-existent haha but that's just to be expected. We celebrated Ernest's birthday with tiramisu after bio paper 2 yesterday, but it was kinda subdued because everyone wanted to go home to study for econs the next morning hahaha. I've also been having lunch with Wei Feng Kai so I guess that's one way to keep up with their lives since we no longer have opportunities for ~obligatory interaction~? Haha! Meanwhile, post-prelims plans are bubbling with the other groups of friends I don't meet often so yayayay for that!

yaaaaaaa I guess that really is about it

peace oUT xXxXXx
