This was suppose to be the last full school week before march break (yay for a four day week next week!) but mine was cut short by my sister and this bloody IA. My sister got really sick this week and she needed someone to stay home with her. My parents couldn’t take off from work so I offered to stay in and take care of her. I get some more time to work on my math IA so hey win-win situation for everyone.
My math paper has been dragging on for days and I’m currently on my last page. I’d like to think I’ve produced a decent work and I hope my teacher and whoever marks this paper from somewhere around the globe thinks its a pretty decent work too.
Spring break is so closeeee but I have to deal with whatever hell is in store for me for the next four days. We are promised with an easy breezy march break as long as we hand all of work in this week and I am honestly counting on that.

Current fave! I was in the car with my dad when this came on Kiss 92.5 and we both thought it would be a perfect background music for those video highlights/vlogs that I’ve been enjoying too too much to do.
Hmm perhaps my summer’14 highlights will have this?

So.. despite my small audition hiccup, I still made it back to FX Players and I may or may not be a tad bit too excited to be back in FX-P and to start rehearsing for this year’s play.
Most of the cast members for this year’s play were from last year’s cast so it will be a cute lil reunion tomorrow.
I don’t know whether I’ll be a major or minor role but that doesn’t really matter. I’m just glad I’m in it again & I get to do what I love :) I’ve been looking forward for this all semester long and it’s finally here ahhhhhh.
The weather is starting to warm up a bit. We’re seeing more sunny days and just a bit below or a bit above zero temperatures. Ahh I guess spring is just right around the corner!
Where do I even begin? DECA Provincials 2014 was absolutely a blast and I thank the IB-DECA crew for the bomb two days in downtown Toronto. It was my first provincials EVER and I’m so proud that my partner, Ayma and I made it to provs in our first year.
Although we didn’t come home with any awards, I wouldn’t necessarily say we came home empty handed. Being in provincials is not all about winning. Of course, it would be truly amazing to receive an award but i think that’s simply the icing to the cake.
I’ve learned so many things in provincials. From forcing myself to be up and alert at 6 in the morning to extracting as much ideas as I can under 30 minutes for an ad campaign to sitting in a huge ballroom with about a thousand kids to answer 100 business questions. The adrenaline you feel in your role play and written exam is truly something. In those two events, you learn and understand your strengths and weaknesses more.
The awards ceremonies were the best part of provincials. The set up was so cool with the stage lights and bomb sound system. There was so much energy in the room. The played really good music too in between segments and while waiting for the awards to start. It felt so good to cheer and scream with great pride and joy as I see my friends and fellow members receive their awards. It gave me the motivation to work much harder next year so that maybe, my partner and I could too be up on stage receiving an award next year.
To be honest, I never thought I would be in DECA. I thought business wasn’t for me and it something I wouldn’t enjoy. However after regionals and provincials, after those nights of cramming marketing terminologies in my head, I’ve developed an keen interest for business. Not gonna lie, I truly enjoyed the DECA season and I’m already looking forward to next year’s.
With all that I learned from provincials, I am ready to take on my second and sadly, final year in DECA. I can hardly wait for it, seven more months to gooo.
PS: Good Luck to everyone who made it in to Internationals! let Team Canada/DECA Ontario killllll em.
We received lots of snow this winter season (suprisingly) after years of dry and bitter coldness. Growing up in a tropical country, I always looked forward to the day I get to watch the snow fall from my bedside window. So now that I’m here, every time it snows and I’m chilling by my bed my inner 8 year old leaps in excitement and joy.
Despite the heavy snowfall, my uncle had a spontaneous invitation to have breakfast at Denny’s with everyone this weekend. Ahhh family gathering + spontaneous plans = perfect.
I didn’t really have anything special planned for my birthday. I wasn’t too excited over the fact that the start of semester two fell on the 31st. For the past two days, my birthday fell on the PA days so yay day off! I honestly thought it would be so boring and uneventful, BUT thanks to my amazing, wonderful friends for making it such a special day.
I started my day with worship with the CFC-Youth HSB; nothing beats good vibes from praising Him. I wanted to start my day with God, to thank him for blessing me with 17 incredible years. I went to my locker after to drop my coat and I see a bunch (10-12) of my fave girls waiting for me with balloons everywhere and a decorated locker. I always thought no one would remember my birthday (other than Hillary because we’re a day apart so we’ve been decorating each other’s locker for 2 years) since it is always so close to exam week. I was definitely so so touched.
It was followed by a streak of people singing hbd in my classes and people greeting me in the hallway. I grabbed my free birthday drink from starbucks after school because nothing beats having my true love on my birthday. I went to mass at night with my family and bought this strawberry shortcake from a bakeshop near my house.
It was a day extremely well spent and I cannot thank my friends and family for it :) I’m hoping to have a lil something planned for my 18th and I cannot wait for it already! :)
