And the day has finally come. I’m finally done with CE Fest. Just thinking about how busy the past few weeks have been makes me a little woozy. But I’m glad to have completed this journey. From the very start, I guess I didn’t exactly know what I had signed up for when I said I was okay being put in a director’s position. I was kinda shocked actually. I’d never done logistics before, and now I’m supposed to lead a team? As the weeks closed in, the scale of the event became truly daunting. I know that compared to everyone else, my job was peanuts. And yet I was really bad at it. I was really bad at balancing my other commitments. And I have to admit that CE Fest was not at the top of my priority until the last two weeks.
Despite all this, I am really glad to be given the opportunity to challenge myself. I met the goals I set out to reach which was to learn new skills and step out of my comfort zone. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my wonderful team of seniors and especially the brilliant project directors. Their patience and competency amazes me.
I’m also really glad to have completed CE Fest because it means one more milestone has been crossed for Project KaHU.
Seeing everyone again made my heart ten times fuller. And at the same time, having to break the news to them about the last few sessions broke my heart a little to see them a little disappointed. It has been a roller-coaster of a semester but I wouldn’t change it for the world (maybe I gotta study harder for finals but I can do it!).
Thank you to God for his guidance and care and love, every step of the way. His blessings keep me safe in my times of distress, which tends to be pretty often haha! I am ever grateful to the people around me who have been with me on the journey so far.
Thank you Hansie for your company and conversations are never dull with this one. I got to satisfy my ramen cravings yesterday at Tonkotsu King @ Paya Labar even though it was really late already (9:30). Please get well soon. 😷
When I lie down, I go to sleep in peace; you alone, O Lord, keep me perfectly safe.
