“You want everyone to be comfortable, but others don’t seem to be as receptive as usual to your gracious gestures today. You may grow frustrated as you try all your tricks, but you still don’t seem to make any progress. Fortunately, you might just succeed if you stop trying so hard. Instead of attempting to appease others now, do what makes you happy. Leading by positive example works better than unrealistically believing that you can fix everything for everyone else.”
Hi everyone! Pardon me for the lack of updates, as I’ve mentioned in last week’s post, this week will be horribly busy with assignments and projects.
But of course, me being me, I won’t be entirely working day to night for assignments. I took a few breaks here and there and managed to squeeze in some last minute work and hey, I’m left with warehouse management report and I’ll be done for the week! Achievement of the week: managed to complete the last 2/3 of the social psychology assignment within an hour. Cheers to me! 😛
I did some shopping on Monday to brush the word “stress” off my shoulders. Hehe and here is what I’ve got!
Some of them were on sales and the sandals are from Ruby. I finally got myself a black cardigen. hahaha
More FROYO for meeeee ^_^
I was happy to receive the card but guess what, there is a “JUST KIDDING” behind this card… T-T
Sailor moon’s cappucino I saw on my dashboard of Weibo!!! They are so unique and detailed, I would love to try them one day!
Photo taken yesterday, after our SCM presentation. We were super happy cause we worked hard together and the teacher sang praises about our presentation despite us exceeding the presentation timing allocated. Thank you Agnes, Kaeli, and Weiqi, you girls are the best and it was a pleasure working with y’all ^_^
Strawberry cheesecake at Fringe (BTP), super Yumzzz, I’ll go back again!
Squid Ink Prawn Aglio Olio , Creamy pumpkin soup and chunky french fries
A short catch up with Yeow Boon before he gets enlisted haha I cant wait to see him all botak and puffed up like a grown man(in a sense, bigger size). YB is still as annoying as ever but he treats me nice like a younger sister; he insisted on treating the meal today while I treat him back another time (deal!). I am fine with it but terribly ashamed of my glutton self for stuffing so much food into my mouth, including his share of pumpkin soup and the entire tub of french fries. Even the lord can’t save me now. Oh and I had a scoop of cookies and cream at island creamery later on too T-T
I managed to complete my last minute ISP assignment during Mr Low’s class and I’m proud of myself. After school, Weiqi and I stayed back to complete some parts of our warehouse report but of course we procrastinated as usual. Weiqi mentioned about coursemate S and C getting together and I went on to make fun of them. We were laughing so loudly in Ourspace that people were giving us that -____- face but we bitches ain’t giving two shit flying eff! We even came up with our own chinese idiom for it, which was later on rated as R21 >:) Jokes aside, I managed to finish a quuestion for the project, well done to myself.
We went back pretty early because Weiqi has dinner at home and I am reluctant to be alone. We spent the bus ride talking and just merely catching up. I am really thankful for this girl although I am often annoyed by her extreme blurness during crucial hours (wayyyy worse than mine)! But at the end of the day, she is still the dearest minion ever. Muackssssxxxxxxooooxxxoooo! She has always been the one there for me when I am feeling down and needs advice. She is my sunflowerrrrr~~~~ ❤ ❤ HEEEHEEE
Thats about it, I should get back on my report now…. 😦
Goodnight people, hang in there, it’ll be TGIF tomorrow!

Sidenote: There are always that few people that we will never allow ourselves to open up to probably because they will often not understand or maybe they are just not worth the while. Sometimes I wish I could better relate to people(not just friends and family) so that I wouldn’t have a hard time trying to explain myself and end up looking as if I am trying too hard for attention or just simply looking like an idiot.
Sidenote_2: The sun is so bloody hot these days. I could feel myself BBQ-ing T_T
Sidenote_3: It is often the least important things that are bothering us the most. I have no idea who asked the question on Ask.fm but I want to find out what am I not good enough. I want to know why didn’t that anon label me as a hypocrite. She/he could simply put it that way but she didn’t. I want to know in what way am I different to her/him. Not because I want to try to please everyone around me and act like a stuck up bitch but because I just wanna know, maybe to make myself feel assured and provide an explaination? I dont know this dissonance that I am feeling but I am definitely not liking this feeling of unjust and unease.
Oh I had a peach today. I feel so special after eating it cause this peach was picked in China and my relative sent it over for us 🙂 One special peach indeed~~ Kekeke
“Yay!” to a stay home Sunday 🙂
My plan for today will just be trying to complete my projects. 5 more to go and presentation then all will be over and done with. I am quite sure that I am already used to the cycle of holiday, school, common tests, holiday, projects, exams, holiday and it starts all over again.
Anyway, yesterday was spent on doing some solo shopping, meeting tkd friends for a horror movie and calling it a day after dinner at chompchomp.
Bought two tops from Zara yesterday, one for mama and one for myself. I was surprised that she did not repremand me for spending unnecessary money hahaha in fact she likes it! ^_^ Forever 21 and H&M was having sales but nothing attractive to me though. Met up with Sara, Kokhui and Weiliang to catch Tales from the dark. It was nothing compared to other horror movies that I’ve watched but I screamed and was quite scared by it probably because it was the first entire horror movie that I’ve watched in a cinema. Haha my apology goes out to poor Kokhui who sat beside me the entire time and let me hit him when I got scared HAHAHAH. According to them I was the only one screaming in the threatre hahaha ok..thats embarrasing… *digs a hole in a ground*
Cropped star top and hight waist short shorts with my vans kicks.
I used to be able to fit into the short the moment i pull it up but nowadays i have to wriggle my way through it. Sigh pie.
After the movie we went to Scape to visit Weiling’s friend’s booth and I saw my friend instead and decided to shower some support by getting this vintage wood-carved rose bracelet. Isn’t it so purrrrrrdy? I think it was love at first sight~~~lool hahahah it makes me look so vampire white!
Redondo cappucino is always my favorite followed by vanilla #favsnack!
I am having earl grey tea in the longest time because previously i have switched to green tea and english breakfast instead. Btw, if you are wondering what is the laptop that I’m using, it is VAIO C series in baby pink. Friends have been asking me if the pink layer is a cover, the answer is no, it is not 🙂 Its a pretty old model cause dad got it for me after my O levels and I have been using it ever since. The system can get pretty fxcked up sometimes but it has made me proud cause people kept telling me how pretty my laptop is etc etc HAHAHAHA
I guess I have to get started on my project now, sorry for such an abrupt ending to the post haha

-signing off with a bada$$ picture for the first time in Joanne’s history-
Hi WordPress, Joanne is finally back for an update ^_^
I’ve been quite busy this week and next week would probably be even worst because there will be even more datelines than ever for me and my group mates to meet! I am really thankful for group mates like Weiqi, Agnes, Kaeli and Sinwey, I can tell that we are working towards a common goal and every one is just very helpful towards each other. My biggest thank you goes out to Weiqi cause she have been constantly reminding me about datelines and presentations (I have a goldfish memory) and putting up with my last minute changes on our topics… so so so thankful that she is understanding and even take time out from her busy schedule to accommodate our assignments! Without my group mates I won’t even have the time to type in this space for a week or so…
Anyways, I did some shopping online and I am hoping that there will still be stocks left for my items so that I can receive those babies by the end of this month~~ HEheeeee!
Oh and guys,,,,,, I finally removed my previous rocker nails to something more classy hahaha. RED NAILS.
Dont tell me it looks ugly cause everyone has been telling me how suitable I am for this color HAHAHAH *shameless me* But really, I am very much in love with them right now.
Recently, I did an assignment for IS and it requires us to talk about incidence and experience that associates with the Social Psychology concepts and I’d decided to talk about my late grandfather. It did bring tears to my eyes during the process because it was always something I avoid talking/thinking about. I feel angry and at the same time regretful and hauntiing because through this incident I see how disgustingly corrupted the society can be and how it affected a life, someone that I love and had loved me dearly.. I still remembered my grandma telling me that while my grandfather lost him memories, he could still remember my name and me during my visit in Febuary 2012. That afternoon, I experienced the worst heartbreak I could ever experience in my entire life- a mixture of hatred and guilt. If I could turn back the clock, I might choose to stay in China than coming over with my parents..I miss the elders so badly.. Some days, I desperately want to return to their side…sigh. Treasure the people you love, dont miss them only when they are gone…
I spent the Friday afternoon with my WS project mates (Weiqi and Sinwey) at Starbucks. We discussed and researched a little before we did some catching up with each other’s life too 🙂 It is always a joy to have Weiqi around cause I feel so comfortable around her and I could complain/talk about almost everything with her!
Doesn’t our dear Weiqi looks cute in her new hairstyle? hehe We all agreed that she looks like a minion on Thursday cause she had her glasses on and was wearing a yellow top! 😛
Hahahah sorry for the selfie :X
I spent the later part of Friday with my aunty’s family because there was something that I needed her help in and look, my cousin has grown so big now!! Aww, such a cutie hehe! ❤
Side note: He puked on my laptop wts. Ahahahahhahaha.
Have a great weekends y’all while I rush to complete my projects and catch a horror movie with my TKD friends 😀 I am really looking forward to it cause it will be my first time watching a horror movie in a cinema(I think…)! *screamm*
