Happy birthday to ME! :P

Hey Peoplez!!!

Okay so my birthday falls on the 25th of September… The bestest, most coolest day of the entire year… okay, maybe im a little biased… :P But anyways…

Birthday = CELEBRATION!!!

There’s nothing I like better to do on my birthday than to eat at someplace nice with my beloved family members… And that’s what we did!

BUT, the problem was, we couldn’t do dinner, cos my brother and I each had a class to attend. Lunch wasn’t a good idea too, cos that would mean dad wouldn’t be there… My lovely father came up with a brilliant alternative, “If we can’t do dinner and can’t do lunch, then… let’s do… SUPPER.”

So that was the very first time anyone in the family had a celebratory supper instead of the regular dinner.

We ate at….

The breaded chicken was AMAZING...

Of course, what's the point of going to Swenson's with getting ICE CREAM!!
 

Hope your birthday was/will be as wonderful as mine!!!

SURPRISE SURPRISE!

Heylo peoples of the virtual world!!!

I'm so happy today. Like so very totally very happy.

Why?

Well, cos I've always believed that I'm horrible at music. Used to... that is.

For my grade 5 piano practical, I received 101/150... I just passed... ><

And, I didn't do too well on my grade 5 theory...;(

So, for my grade 6 piano practical, I steeled my will and vowed to try harder.

The process was tedious, depressing, and so not-fun... but now, thinking about it, it was SOOOOO worth it...

I spent hours banging away at the piano, my fingers tripping over each other, hitting a wrong note every so often...

Staring defiantly at the little black notes on the score and wishing they weren't so hard to play...

Sometimes, I would let out a scream of frustration, slamming my hands on the piano, and stalk off...

But I gritted my teeth and pulled through...

~~~

On the day of the exam, I was soooooo nervous... >~<

I remember walking into the exam room and thinking "im gonna die... im gonna die"...

But I was brave and did what I needed to do...

~~~

A few weeks ago, while at a friend's house, I received an SMS from my mom... it read,
 
"Piano grade 6 score 135 distinction."
 
I was like... O.o wad?!
 
Then, i died of happiness... <3
 
That evening, my family went for a celebratory dinner... SUBWAY!!!! WOOT WOOT!!! <3
 

 
THANK YOU, MOM AND DAD, FOR BELIEVEING IN ME!!!
THANK YOU, MS. STEF, FOR NOT GIVING UP ON ME!!! >...<
 
I couldn't have done it without you people!!!
 
THANK YOU, GOD, FOR THE STRENGTH, COURAGE, DILIGENCE... EVERYTHING!!!
