=489= Thanksgving: Presentations

I am always so thankful for the presentations in AVT.

I am so thankful that we don’t have to dress up for every presentation.

Our attitude has always been, “let my work do the talking.”

I am so grateful for this past three years of education that it has provided me. May I continue to treasure this period of time.

The Lord have been blessing me with a lot of new friends recently. Some of which we weren’t very close, but somehow, started talking over some stuff. Always glad to have new friends! HAHA

Also glad for a friendship that deepened over the course of this Sem. Very interesting to see how it progressed. 

No actually it is two friendships that deepened, but one more than the other.

My new favourite word is the word “draw.” HAHA. Well, I really like how I really like to say, there is a certain draw rather than a certain attraction. Somehow I find that word more accurate.

I just gained a mentor in audio! 😁 WHOO HOO! It is just nice to know that I will have someone to learn from and that I will continue to learn audio and retain audio knowledge.

AEPG IS OVARRR! Can’t wait for Friday to be over as well! 😁

So much to be enjoyed man.

I am already in holiday mood man, this is bad! 😦

Come on Kelvin, let’s work hard, push for that last round.

Thank you God! πŸ™‚

=488= Words of Joy: Character

I love how great Rowell’s character is. He is really one of the nicest guys I know. Honestly, I haven’t seen him really angry before. He is so patient and understanding.

I was honestly struggling with the whole mic set up just now. I am really not a leader kinda sound engineer. I have practically no clue how to lead a project that I am unsure of. I am more of a partner kinda sound engineer. I much rather have someone that would think alongside me and disagree with me when I am wrong. I am so glad that I work so closely with Rowell as a technical in church. He is such a joy to work with. Just WHOO.

Asked Steven if he is willing to continue to teach me sound even after this Sem ends, he replied that it is really hard for him because he has no time and that he only brought one batch out. Sad. However, he has allowed me to text him whenever I have a question on sound. So HEY! Not too bad! 😁

My plan to continue to learn sound while studying something different is getting quite somewhere! 😁

Now the next step is to ask Mr Lau to teach me too!

Doubt he would be willing, but worth a shot right? HAHA!

Set up was tiring man. It sucks that I am not the one there to do sound, but there are more important things to do! So yeah! Let’s go! Let’s Chiong tonight! πŸ™‚

Let’s go Jia Jun!

Pray for me guys, so much work to be done!

=487= Words of Melancholy: Slideshow With Na Xie Nian

Wah, honestly, when Pammy’s group just sang Na Xie Nian with the slideshows full of photos of our batch, it just hit me so hard that I have spent 3 full years with my class.

I remembered when I entered year 1, I ranted that the class wasn’t as close as my PFP class and yet, now when I saw the slideshow, I was SOO much more emotional now then when I graduated from PFP.

Perhaps a change in personality?

I was a MelChor before the end of PFP. Now being a SangMel perhaps I am more emotional that way.

Perhaps, I have gained deeper relationships with my classmates. I would think so. I mean, I seldom even keep in contact with my PFP classmates anymore. The ones that I can go up to and just chat and talk are so few. Oh I actually do miss quite a few of them. Dinah, Wee Geok and Jordi, please meet up soon. 😦

In that one year of SOO much drama, I really didn’t have that many close friends. Probably only the three I listed above, apart from them, I never really went really that deep not even with the three above.

This last Sem, whoa. HAHA. I have gained so many close friends Sia. You know who you people are. Somehow or another, people who weren’t that close in the first two years suddenly become close over some issues! Friendships that became awkward due to old conflicts over work was refreshed and fixed Sia. I really think that Intern made us all grow up and within a short 5 months, God really blessed me with so much more competency in technicals.

If you have let me done the live sound test before I went for internship, I probably wouldn’t have done so well. I probably would have been struggling through.

Thank God for blessing me with so much through this period in my life.

Good friends and products of work and ability. Lord, you really bless me more than I asked for.

Not only that, I think that there are a few friends that are potentially becoming good friends. Probably after 17 Feb, we would probably get closer! It seems that way. Cannot wait for Taiwan! 😁

Thank you so much Lord.

=485= Word: Make My Day Please

Ok just taking a break for like a few minutes before doing more work. 😭

Guys, these past few weeks have been insane. Never have I spent so much time in school and never have I spent so much time with my group mates. Now, I just want to rest and sleep. 😭

Well, the Lord is good. I feel a lot closer to my friends after this Sem. AHAHAHA. I mean, with so much time spent, it is quite likely that it will happen.

The whole week will be tiring. Just cannot wait for Friday to be over and I can just think about something else apart from AEPG, FSD and SDLP. Goodness.

Well, Lord, please sustain me.

I forgot to praise God over something the past week.

When I reached quite rock bottom last week, I received Psalm 32 from the Lord and it brought so much comfort to me.

Psalm 32 reads

β€œIt is a great blessing when people are forgiven for the wrongs they have done, when their sins are erased. It is a great blessing when the Lord says they are not guilty, when they don’t try to hide their sins. Lord, I prayed to you again and again, but I did not talk about my sins. So I only became weaker and more miserable. Every day you made life harder for me. I became like a dry land in the hot summertime. Selah But then I decided to confess my sins to the Lord. I stopped hiding my guilt and told you about my sins. And you forgave them all! Selah That is why your loyal followers pray to you while there is still time. Then when trouble rises like a flood, it will not reach them. You are a hiding place for me. You protect me from my troubles. You surround me and protect me, so I sing about the way you saved me. Selah The Lord says, β€œI will teach you and guide you in the way you should live. I will watch over you and be your guide. Don’t be like a stupid horse or mule that will not come to you unless you put a bit in its mouth and pull it with reins.” Many pains will come to the wicked, but the Lord ’S faithful love will surround those who trust in him. Good people, rejoice and be very happy in the Lord. All you who want to do right, rejoice!”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32 ERV‬‬

Oh God my Lord, I love you so much. How you sustain me through this period of time is just beyond me. Father, how you love me in spite of how much I have done wrong is beyond me. Father, your love is so deep.

I got so angry yesterday when I heard M told me that her pastor got fired by this council just because he got a divorce.

I don’t understand.

Why would a Christian Organisation, that preaches love and forgiveness, be so harsh on its leaders? Do you know how devastating it already is for the pastor to get a divorce? Do you know how much he must be hurting? Do you know how ashamed he must have felt being a pastor that cannot save his own marriage? Not only do you not love him and support him, you cut off all support and take his job away from him?

Goodness. What kind of gospel are you preaching?

If only perfect people with perfect marriages can serve God in church, there won’t be a church.

Actually, if the church cannot love and support the person, I cannot believe in the gospel that that church preaches.

“Where is God when it hurts?”

“Where is the church when it hurts?”
Don’t make me so angry at how the church have such little love and concern for people and so much empathsis on the law.

Do you even know what Jesus had preached?

Goodness.

We are sinners saved by grace. Serving Him even though we are still sinners. May we NEVER forget that.

May Psalm 32 be forever in my heart. That I will go back to the Lord when I sin.

The video link up there is for people reading this blog. Help guys, I need better days. I am dying under a pile of work.

Father sustain me through this period! Thank you Lord!
