I did it !

No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit - Helen Keller

Today's Smile-Inducer : I'm basically a private person (I know bloggers can't be 'private', but humour me la ) I'm really happy with my results that I'm doing something I never thought I would do and posting it up here. So don't start throwing your tomatoes so soon...*gulps*. Psst... I saw Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita in Popular today..fingers are itchy but my TBR pile is moaning at the premonition of another sibling to add to the tower ... and not to mention mum would kill me if she reads this To buy or not to buy ? It's a Penguin Version though...hmm

Ooh ya, if you're wondering what the above title is about ....

I thank the Lord for all the good, the struggles and the lessons that I've amassed so far. I know that a lot of hope and expectations have been invested in me and I'm sorry to disappoint you guys, but I didn't break any records in the end. I once read that there are two images in one soul. One is the image that longs to break free and the other is the image that others see. I'm proud now that the person in the mirror and the girl that I am have finally met and agreed that we're one and the same.

The past 4 years has been filled with new discoveries peppered with doubts and what-was-I-thinking moments, but as they say, you walk the paths you choose and make the best out of it, and if you're lucky, you find some time to stop and smell the flowers along the way. One last semester to go and I'll be an engineer. It's scary because like a professor once said, when accountants make a mistake, the books don't balance, but when an engineer makes a mistake, someone dies. *breathe in, breathe out*

This is a celebratory post, so let's throw some confetti, pop a bottle of bubbly .. maybe ... and celebrate because class of 2010 ... a little more to go but for now WE DID IT !!!

Ok. Enough of all that narcissism, I leave you with one of my favourites from Norah Jones. Have a great mid-week !
