"Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting." - Cormac McCarthy

by - 21 February

How apt is this? It applies to everyone, we all wish for something and then hope for the best. Not many actually take physical steps to attaining their goal and making this wish a reality.

I also wonder how it is possible for some people to be so blessed with the magic of words and to be able to use simple words we all know in a sentence and evoke a feeling from the reader?

Anyway, that's just a sidetracked thought. This quote, I feel, relates to me in terms of my job search and narrowing what I'd like to do as a career. Ever since moving back to Singapore I've been drowning in my own uncertainties and worries about what to do in 2017. Looking for a job was tough, but my search has come to fruition and I'm currently employed! *yippee* Even though it is a part-time retail job, I'm still happy that I have something to pass my time with as I continue pondering and searching for the right full time job for me.

I've also noticed that it's been a month since I last posted (my bad) but just a quick update on what's happened since.

  1. Chinese New Year - had such a great one this year with Ben once again, and had my family all together which was very meaningful as always.
  2. Job - Yes, I got a job! Shall not repeat myself since I've already mentioned this earlier.
  3. Graduation! - It finally happened. We flew to Perth for a couple of days to get ready and attend my ceremony. It was such an incredible day, I felt so blessed and also proud of myself for completing my education. There were so many pictures taken, kind wishes passed around and pride filled the air. I have to say, I definitely will miss the good ol' Perth days.
  4. Cousin's Wedding - It's the first wedding I've attended in a long time and it's the first wedding amongst my extended family. Ben and I got to attend it together and it was so much fun.
It's been a busy few weeks and I honestly haven't had much time at home either. But I think as we head further into the year I'll get settled more quickly and have more time to work on creative things.

I find that it's always good to look at my goals and redetermine myself to work towards these goals. There are so many things I want to get started on and so many aspirations that I want to see fulfilled. I'm glad that I finally got around to finishing this post and posting it, it's a great feeling.
