*.* Updates.. Super short one. *.*

It's been such long time since I last posted something.

Exams over. Finally.

So much things had happened and my life has definitely been more exciting. I can't wait for more to come.

It's time for me to get back into my QT without much disturbance. I got to come up with some exercise plan soon. Meet up people whom I haven't met for super long time. Learn rollerblading! It was postponed so hopefully I get my off day next week and no recall!

*.* So touched.. *.*

I cannot expressed the warmth in my heart when I overheard one of the girls who told her mother the things that I said to her some weeks back. That proved that I made a difference in her life and my words do mean something to her.

I cannot believe that girl trusted me to tell me something so secretive that no one has known. It was after much probing that she told me the truth as she trusted me.

Today's Parent Visit was quite a good one. I know God place me here for a reason.
Whenever girls ask me why I chose to work in SGH, I know my answer very well: My passion is to work with them and though they suck my blood. I know I will endure it and to see them back to school as a different and better person.

*.* So pissed!! *.*

I was walking out from SGH to the bus stop and 1 empty854 with the extended carriage just went past me. I waited for a good 25 minutes and 1 bus came. It was the normal bus and was super packed! The worse thing was.. The bus didn't stop for me! I was the only one in the bus stop. BIG SIGH~

Fast forward the story: I took a cab home.

My head is spinning with phone calls and noisy. I had a crazily hectic day.

*.* QT for today.. *.*

Revelations 2:10 "Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life."

Context of this verse: God wrote a message to the church in Smyrna.

God is telling people in Smyrna to remain faithful even in their suffering because God is in control and his promises are reliable. Jesus NEVER say that being faithful we will avoid sufferings and persecution. Rather, we must be faithful IN our sufferings. Only then our faith prove to be genuine.

*.* *.*

It has been a good month. Yes I'm surviving well in the Girls' Home. I do have problems at work of course. Decided to let it pass and move on.

Beginning to love my job and really been exciting going to work everyday. I always remember hearing this during the Ophir training - expect the unexpected. It's the same at work - expect the unexpected.

God has been real good to me. I am reminded to carry my cross everyday and love like how He loves me.

*.* My first graveyard shift.. *.*

It's my first graveyard shift and I must admit not easy to stay awake for 12 full hours!

Got to check monitors every hr and do rounds every 1.5hrs. Worse still! System went down and got everyone panicked. The system is the one that ensures all doors are secured. Some doors can only open using that system. Imagine system down and there's a fire in the dorm, my girls will be cooked and everyone has to prepare probably 5 toilet rolls of report. System went back to normal within half an hour. Imagine having to wake your manager up at 2am in the morning. Bad bad.

I found myself knocking out at 5am. I was really feeling the fatigue and was really bad. Took a quick nap and it was time to wake the girls up. One of my girls was isolated because of some issues and she called to say she wants to see the doctor. But she persistently asking for her stationery and I was finding something amiss and after her second call, I went to check on her pencil case. Lo and behold, I found a letter in her pencil case. It was supposed to pass to another girl from another dorm and it's illegal in the home.

My mentor passed me the pink form and told me to issue her a Violation Report (VR). It's my first time issuing a VR at the early morning 7am. I felt bad though.

Anyway, I survived my 12 hrs of duty. I must say it's a peaceful night. I hope I get that too every night when I'm alone.

I slept 2hrs so far. I can't get back to sleep despite feeling so exhausted. The fatigue kicks in at the wrong time. I hope I survive tonight's class.
