Wondering With a capital W

In line with my post title, all future 'W's' (there u go) will be capitalized. I've just realized that my posts are so random. I get on about something, then end With another point. HaWhaW. Any of u can find an un-capitalized W.... feel free to treat me to something! ;D hoho

That's the story of my academic life noW actually. I'm so physically spent that all the momentum I've gotten from getting such ::*beautiful*:: grades (meaning that they're so bad that they need manual decoration), is spent on sitting in front of the comp W all my digital notepads packed, and my mind going 'DUHHHHHHH'.

Haha.. apologies to my project mates and colleagues at Work Who are never gonna read this post (but at least i feel better for saying it) for the virus called sleep_deprivation that has Wiped out Joanne's mental files. Emotional too.

more and more though, I'm Wondering (yes, With a capital W), if this is cos I might do better studying something else. somehoW i kinda knoW that environmental engineering might be just a filler - i dunno Why i keep picturing myself doing other things. =) i'm encouraged though - i Wanna accomplish lotsa stuff in life. It's sad that stuff like money, and time, and systems just limit What we can all do in our lives. So looking forWard to eternity.

oh dear. quite the opposite from La-jang (*GO JANG RAWRRR), i find myself shrinking from talking about spiritual stuff on my blog. no... not because i'm backsliding but more because i've gone through a valley and emerged With more fear and less faith. i'm reminded hoW i used to be so afraid of failing and letting down myself and people, that i'd just keep quiet so that i don't sabotage myself When i go through my valleys.

despite that, it's knoWing that God has promised that it Would be hard, and knoWing hoW real is seems When you go through stuff that really turn your insides and cause you to cry soundlessly on a Whim. just falling back on that, it assures me that Whatever aWaits me at the end is Worth it.

This song just voices out What i feel & What i Wish i understood in the 5 years Where i've seen people come and go from God.

East to West by Casting Crowns
Here I am, Lord and I'm drowning
In Your sea of forgetfulness
The chains of yesterday surround me
I yearn for peace and rest
I don't want to end up where You found me
And it echoes in my mind, keeps me awake tonight

I know You've cast my sin as far as
As the east is from the west
And I stand before You now as
As though I've never sinned
But today I feel like I'm just one mistake away
From You leaving me this way
Jesus can You show me just how

Far the east is from the west
'Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been
Rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other

I start the day, the war begins
Endless reminding of my sin
Time and time again Your truth is drowned out
By the storm I'm in
Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away
From You leaving me this way
Jesus can You show me just how

I know You've washed me white
Turn my darkness into light
I need Your peace to get me through
To get me through this night
I can't live by what I feel
About the truth Your work reveals
And I'm not holding on to You
But You're holding on to me
You're holding on to me

There must be more than this
Oh breath of God come breathe within
There must be more than this
Spirit of God we wait on You

Fill us anew we pray

Consuming fire fan into flame

Spirit of God won't You fall in this place
Lord have your way Lord have your way in us

Stir it up in our hearts Lord

As Sy Rogers said today, there are things we can look back on, our memorial stones, that encourage us and give us strength to move forward. I rmb a time I was so far away and so tired of people in general, cos really it's relationships that really get me down - n when Jean would walk in on me crying or just sitting and not even having the energy to do stuff, she would listen n say 'just cry out to God alright?' and that would be the last thing i wanted to hear. sometimes you know what to do, and you know what the advice will be, but when the emotions are not there, an…

hello from the other side

hello to the old me (6 years, yikes!)

hello from someone who's discovered that old is just another word for diminishing physical capacity, but increasing everything-else capacity!

The old me would have said, I should have posted more regularly and I shall post more often now... but I'm glad in hindsight that I held to my belief that I should only post when I've something positive to contribute. Not just words, but how they are birthed. Words written without vanity. And words written not to solicit approval in replacement of the lack of it elsewhere. Words that aren't hurried through the time needed to process and ruminate over the experiences of the past few years (dramatic in some aspects, mundane in most so all in all pretty much as per everyone else's I would expect!).

Still, a little mortifying to realise that I don't know how to work the buttons (!) and to realise I'd forgotten so many things, and yet in some respects, am still entirely the same.

And O…

on mountains and perspective

Kept awake by a bout of traveler's diarrhea and the ensuing abdominal colic. Just been back from an attempt at Mount Kinabalu, 'highest mountain in Southeast Asia'. Okay, those apostrophes are there out of bitterness... it really is the highest mountain in Southeast Asia. And I couldn't even attempt the summit. Made it to the base camp at 3067 m though... that's what it says on my black-and-white certificate - colored ones are only for successful summit-ers.  Crrr!

But I made it back with my life. And I'm humbler for the attempt, though how could I resist the parting shot: "I'll be back!"?

But on a more serious note, it's an awesome thing, a beautiful gift to be able to get out there into as natural a surrounding you can get (without dying a slow tv-less death from cold, altitude sickness, projectile vomit and did I mention cold?). It truly seems like one never can be happy - despite all my first-world comforts, I'd gladly pay to painfully…
