1. Depression is not a choice.

Depression is one of the most helpless and frustrating experiences a person can have. It’s sometimes feeling sad, sometimes feeling empty, and sometimes feeling absolutely nothing at all. There are times when depression can leave someone feeling paralyzed in their own mind and body, unable to do the things they used to love to do or the things they know they should be doing. Depression is not just a bad day or a bad mood and it’s not something someone can just “get over.” Remember no one chooses to be depressed.

2. Saying things like “it’ll get better,” “you just need to get out of the house,” or “you’ll be fine” is meaningless.

It’s easy to tell someone these things because you think you’re giving them a solution or a simple way to make them feel better and to ease their pain, but these…

6 Things Being A Dancer Has Taught Me About Life

Yesss… preach sistahh preachh

Thought Catalog

Ever since I was seven years old, the dance studio has been my second home. Through all of the recitals, costumes, hairspray, injuries and friends I’ve made, my experiences on and off stage have taught me so many things about myself, and about life in general.

There’s no way you could just go out in your driveway and practice those barre combinations you learned in ballet class yesterday, and you really can’t practice your tap solo in the grass in front of your house or on your kitchen floor (this in particular tends to make the ‘rents angry). It’s just one of those activities that you need the right environment to execute. On top of this, there isn’t really any “off season” for…

Internet Funny Finds

“Time flies when you’re having fun”

Well, I’d would like to add a student edition of the saying

Time flies when you are stressed and procrastinating at the same time”

So I’ve officially completed 2 midsemester tests this week (did my second one today) and the 5th week of uni madness is over. Friday’s going to be good tomorrow (Good Friday) and bring on the long weekend and mid-semester break! Which will be filled with kids church planning and uni work catch ups. Nonetheless, bring on the Easter holidays!!

BOOM BABY

If you don’t know me, I’m a professional procrastinator. Especially when I’m flooded with Mid-Sem tests to cram or assignments due. Everything else but those things seem to be extra interesting and all your friend’s conversations get extra juicy too. It’s just a mentality set but omgosh it gets me every time!

So this week, I’ve got some hilarious finds well I think it’s funny.. So here are some of them
(some were beyond the week but extremely post-worthy)

As seen on my University’s stalker Facebook page which I stalk all the time because it’s meant to be stalked… don’t judge. I sincerely believe it’s the secret to why we’re the top university in Australia, these people make us amazing stress-relievers okay…

reasons why the mental hospital reference is accurate because we are. Sending big fat love hearts to my friends because you guys keep me sane in this crazy world, they keep me from being admitted to the psych ward. Oh I shouldn’t forget God and the fam too ❤

Also some shameless promotion of one of my bestfriend’s cousin’s new show Make It Pop. It just premiered in the US but yet to screened over here down under. If you would like to relive the days of your childhood or you’re not over the old tween shows like iCarly, Shake it Up, Hannah Montana, etc… this is the show to watch. Here’s an interview of her with Pacific Rim, kudos to her for identifying herself as Malaysian Chinese! It’s really rare of our kind to appear in the showbiz world and I couldn’t be more proud to have someone like her representing us! Big love hearts to Erika Tham!

Also, welcoming another one of my bestfriends into the blogging world!
