Pioneer training #1,2,3 and test

When i said the holidays just started, it didn't ACTUALLY start until today. The last week i've been really busy, as i had to go back to school for girl guides. There were also lots of pioneer training practices since our skills weren't very good and we kept having to do the different things over and over again. The most tiresome one was obviously fire lighting, since we had to dig a hole, keep the fire going and boil water all in 15 minutes. Not just that, but we had to collect a lot of punks, twigs, and kindling, like everyday, because we had training consecutively from Wednesday to Friday.

For the sake of fire lighting, my friends and i went everywhere just to find punks and twigs. We were like desperately picking up sticks at our school field complaining about how this was the first time we've ever loved sticks so much while our other friends watch us. And yesterday was the pioneer test. It went quite well i guess, only for fire lighting i think i exceeded the 15 minutes a little :P Also this really thick wood gave me a scratch on my leg and i really have to say, this was the first time i've ever gotten so many scratches in a day.

Besides all that, in the mornings and after pioneer training, my so called huh gg gang that consisted of Siti, Hui Wen, Sharlotte and I, really bonded a lot throughout the whole week. We met up in the mornings for breakfast, and lunch after pioneer training. Which was obviously really fun to be able to spend time with my friends every single day of the week, excluding school, because, y'know you get to see sides of people when it comes to these survival skills and stuff.

Another thing that also happened was that on Friday, i saw strawberry(certain someone) with his little gang(that i call the fruit gang) and he was there being all cute and stuff and his laugh!! I was just opposite him exaggerating about his overwhelming cuteness. I know this really isn't right because_____________.

 But this week really has been fun, and here's some photos of it. I didn't get many cuz' well we were training lol.
This was my little fire i made during training

2017

Two years of inconsistent blogging. I love blogging, I truly do. There's something about putting feelings and emotions into sentences that really appeal to me. Forgive me, in advance. I won't be blogging very much in the next few months, maybe years, probably, until I have time to sit down and just let it all out. I'm not saying that i'm quitting, but I merely do not have the time for it and it isn't one of my priorities at the moment. I'm working on myself, through academics, art, my social life(?). If it's necessary for you to be updated on how i'm doing, Twitter's the way to go. Everything's there.

Ugh, anyone else sensing that tension and disconnection between you and I? Gosh, I need to "up" my mood a little. HOW'S IT GOING? Life's been great for ya? It's 2017 and I'll be 17 this year. It's freaky how I'm almost considered a young adult when I barely feel like a teenager. I guess that's the scary part of…

Self-Worth

She showed me the importance of individuality. How okay it is to just stick out at certain edges or corners or curves that maybe others can't appreciate. That it's perfectly fine to be bursting with energy that people outright assume it as immaturity, or to have such strong emotions that overflow and fill cracks and openings all around, because that is what makes us individuals. 

update

Pretty late. I am really late. I haven't blogged in such a long time that honestly, it doesn't cross my mind often. This'll be just a short update, i guess.

The usual, school's been stressful. Art, other subjects and stuff. I am thankful that i'm able to handle the stress in a positive manner, most of the time. My health hasn't been really good lately. My knees were awful, they kept hurting and cracking and i had to see a doctor-two, actually. One knee was injured due to an old injury and the other was misaligned with the rest of my leg. Troubling, huh? That was during the first two months of 2017. About a month later, my throat got inflamed, i had a bad throat ulcer infection and it was so difficult to even swallow saliva. Lymph nodes enlarged a whole lot, too. Next month, eye stye. Not so much of a problem, but my lower eyelid grew a stye and the upper lid swelled. Healed afterwards, but currently I have another swollen eyelid. Gross. Kinda makes it hard to o…
