Musical Friday – Glad I Tried

Matt and Kim – Glad I tried

In the last few years, I have had a lot of time to think about stuff. A lot has changed. This means, that I also had to create some changes to move forward. For some of the changes, they were ones I should have made a decade ago, others were ones I should have made 4 years back. Basically, I knew I needed to but didn’t as I didn’t want to put the effort I had put into it, go to waste.

The thing is, sometimes it isn’t a waste. Thanks to those experiences, I know more. I know what it is that I need or want. I know when and how best to support and be supported. I know that despite being afraid of rejection (as most people are), to go and try anyway. Yes I might be heavily embarrassed, but I won’t die.

So, I’m glad I tried


Musical Friday – Love Shot

EXO – Love Shot

One of the members, Kai, was in a drama that I loosely followed. He acted quite well, and his scenes were fun.

I came across the video as one of my old students said that the new MV was awesome.

Um…Kai…if only you were 10 years older…LOL. (Yes, yes…the reports are he is dating. I’m just speaking on the sense of crushing on celebrities in general)

(If you don’t know which one Kai is, he is the one in the red. The one with the shiny chest. Honestly, did they shimmer him or oil him?)

Musical Friday with Joel

Joel Adams – Please Don’t Go
(it is still Friday in Vancouer, so I am not wrong when I saw it is still Friday!! But I do recognize that it is Saturday in Toronto…)

Happy New Year!

Hm. Yeah…well if you are seeing this, I am still around!
A lot has changed in terms of blogging, and I didn’t have the same drive that I used to. I also don’t have the time I used to. But, this was my small outlet in the vast world. This makes it hard to let go.

I was thinking that I liked this song because of the music itself, rather than the lyrics. But maybe, just maybe I am pleading to myself not to let this blog go?

In any case, happy new year. I hope that this year will bring you a lot of laughs and life long happy memories!

Path -> Grey

Last week my class did a mini activity that was to come up with a few lines to describe the concept that was meaningful to us, and associate it with a colour.

I liked mine, as simplistic and weird as it was…


Though others might see it as being bleak,
I see it as the colour of hope & excitement.
Where will this path of mine lead me too?
Where will I end up…
Now that I’m finally back on my path

Things aren’t always the way I would want them to (especially with another recent curveball that I didn’t expect). However, I continue to be thankful that the plans have lined up, and I’ve been granted this opportunity. That my schooling from UofT has prepared me not to freak out over the interesting course load.
