my 1st official handball game

SHL – NTU vs Breakers (23:15)

Today is the second game for NTU, but my first because I was away in BKK when they played the first game. And today’s game was also my first official handball game (so the title says).

The Breakers team has been well-known to be good, strong, fast, full of chemistry, swift, and perhaps every other positive word that you can think of when it comes to a handball game. They are….well, kinda “feared by all” so to say.

How did I feel since my first official game was against them? Hmm, honestly, I wasn’t feeling very anxious. It didn’t bother me how good others said they are; I just wanted to play well and enjoy the game. I mean…it’s true that they were good, but regardless of how good a team is, chances of winning is always 50-50 (well, that’s what I believe). I mean…how lousy can we be if we do put in the effort to train and all, right? If even before the game starts and we think negative, then that’s it. Chances of winning would go down all the way to perhaps 10% if lady luck is on our side. But no, lady luck doesn’t exist. So yeah.. 0%.

So how was the experience of an official handball game? It was TIRING. I didn’t enjoy myself very much… maybe because it felt like the whole game play was kinda too rigid. Or maybe also because I don’t have enough training myself. Many reasons, but that was certainly not the best of the team, I feel.

Any afterthoughts? To be honest, I felt that I didn’t play very well because I was inferior. I felt that I wasn’t good enough technically as compared to the others that were on the team.

So what’s next? Well, I guess in order to play better, I need to remove that thought of inferiority, I suppose. Don’t know if I’m looking forward to the next few games or even training.. The thought of traveling down for training is just !@#$%^&*. JI BA BOM FAR. But I’ll try (:

Officially the Last Semester

Alright. Today marks the first day of my last semester in NTU (fingers crossed that I don’t fail any mod this sem) and it’s a bittersweet feeling as I think about it… Sweet because I’m almost done with this phase of life; bitter because I gotta start thinking about what I wanna do when I graduate and no more having all the time in the world doing whatever I want. ): SIGH. 

Attended two lectures today – 930 to 1130 and 1430 to 1630. Didn’t have any hardcopy notes for lecture because there were just toooooo many people printing notes. -.- Highlight of the day: I helped to fix the e-space printer because it was stuck. Kudos to all the times we had to fix the church printer when we printed cell material. Haha.. xD 

PS: I have handsome profs for Monday lectures. Hopefully it gives me enough reason to continue going to lectures~ HAHA.

God knows best

Ok, so my FYP mentor told me to meet her at 10am today in the lab. We were supposed to grow the cells today but it turned out that the cells weren’t growing very well—we’ll, at least the colonies couldn’t be seen and so because of that we weren’t able to grow any cells today. So we made new agar gels and that’s all for my lab today. It ended at about 10.45am.

Hmm, on one hand, I am quite sian that the cells didn’t grow because that means that we will have to do ligation again next week, and that would mean that more time is required for me to learn what I need to learn. On the other hand, I am thankful because I was worried yesterday (and still worried this morning) that I might need to stay late for lab and not able to make it for cell. I am leading worship today so I need to go to cell earlier! Haha yupp, so thank God that I can go to cell earlier today because of whatever that happened 🙂

Final Year – Last Lap to Go~

Tomorrow marks the start of my final year in NTU. As usual, I don’t know what to expect.. Like every other student, I desire to do well in my studies…but I don’t wanna JUST study when I only have one more year left in this place. I wanna do something more!!! (For God of course~ 🙂 )

I pray that in this one year, God will use me to win souls for His kingdom. 
I pray that in this one year, God will teach me to be more patient and loving towards my family members. 
I pray that in this one year, God will reveal to me what is in store for me when I graduate.
I pray that in this one year, God will teach me to be more effective in Children’s Ministry.
I pray that in this one year, God will cause a stirring in my heart to desire for more of Him. 
I pray that in this one year, I will never ever have enough of God.
