a quick one...

its interesting that i had another similar rough week last week. coming back at 11pm for six days in a row doing the Portfolio Theory Management group assignment. the subject is one of those most feared in the commerce faculty. seriously. i think i spent more time with them than with my housemates during those days. but the effort really paid off. we understood well and completed it well. none of those last minute things. haha...

anyway, a quick posting of some research of my own some time ago. the song 'You Raise Me Up' popularized by Josh Groban and later Westlife, is a Christian song. written by a Christian trio, Selah, the song won the Dove Award(Christian music award in america) for the best song of the year.

i already had enough of the song, until danny then discovered the song and was playing it over and over again(eeeerrggggh!). but, being more accustomed to Josh Groban's version, it was Selah's original version and lyrics that made me grow close to that song again. here's to everyone...

You Raise Me Up
written by Selah

When I am down and oh my soul so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until You come and sit awhile with me

You raise me up so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

There is no life no life without its hunger
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly
But when you come and I am filled with wonder
Sometimes I think I glimpse eternity

nearly a month...

haha... it's been nearly a month i didn't write anything.

i pretty much forgotten about the blog. but there was once or twice that it crossed my mind. have been concentrating on fitting into my uni schedule and putting my heart into my studies.

it has been good. but then i fell behind a bit. starting not to understand things now.
completed and handed in my summer course group project today. phew! a big big relief. we had a month to do it. but thanks to my group mates, they gave me so much stress in the last 2 weeks and even extra extra stress on the last 4 days before the due date today. (its only the end of week 3)

i don't really want to blame them but you know those times when you have done your part and did all you can, and the rest is really for all the others to do? that's how i felt. i looked at what i was in, i could somehow guess what would be ahead for the last week before the due date. i guess work life could be like that. so i just smile. just deal with it. do my best. do everything i can. even if its 80% of the work load.

i looked at my subjects this time. its tough. its going to be an interesting semester. somehow, i felt that my past 3 years of ups and downs, have been preparing me and this last semester is a test of all the 3 years. not just education but also the choices i make, the discerning, the focus, the concentration, the priorities.

thank you God. in the midst of tiredness, i really feel your presence. i just know it.

When i look into Your holiness,
When i gaze into Your loveliness,
When all things that surround
become shadows in the light of You,
-an old old song-
