If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life; it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.
Chanced upon the quote above on Tumblr yesterday night, and realized how apt it was to sum up the fun-filled, tiring, yet mega meaningful day I had yesterday (:
Met up with AC comm for comm lunch & bonding yesterday, first visit to Citrus by the Pool! It was a really quiet & nice ambiance, with reasonably-priced food & rather yummy too. Definitely worth the time & $$, will go back again in the future! We stayed there for approximately 2.5h or so, chit-chatted & I really got to know my comm better, so I guess it was a successful bonding session hee. They all seem really nice, looking forward to working closely with them to make our adventure camp a huuuuge success for the youths! But time is ticking, loads to do before the camp so … time to buck up.
Went to care corner (early) after comm lunch, planned for the outing’s activities and proceeded to meeting the youths to head to Safra Yishun for bowling. Won’t be talking about much details, but just wanted to say that yesterday truly made me understand the spirit of volunteering once again. Took an approximately 2 years off from volunteering ever since mid-2012, I’m glad that this fuzziness/heartwarming feeling still exists :’) Truth be told, I really miss the days being an Interactor & heading over to MCYC every Tuesday after lessons for tutoring sessions. Nevertheless, feeling really touched during the occasional instances where my tutees from MCYC talk to me via FB (: It’s that feeling of knowing you’ve impacted someone else’s lives that ultimately matters, knowing that all the time & effort spent has been worth it, regardless of the magnitude of that impact.
I really admire all the social workers I’ve met in my life so far, their dedication is something I aspire to achieve. The patience, genuine concerns, as well as the abilities they possess to handle any situations pertaining to the youths really goes to show how social workers deserve the recognition & respect. Their selflessness, the way they carry themselves to ensure they are good role models for the youths to look up to :’) And the way they always put the welfare of the youths first.
Volunteering is such a wonderful, wonderful experience that everyone must try, really. Looking forward to meeting them again, probably at the camp I guess!
Alright enough of these things haha. Feeling like I’m overwhelmed with so many commitments etc & the list of things to do is just never ending, but telling myself that it’s all worth it will help pull us pull through.
On a sidenote, Infinite’s Season 2 will be released in approximately 45 minutes, I’m all ready for it! Hopefully their comeback will be successful hee & can’t wait for our pre-ordered albums to arrive! Dongwoo picture card pleaseee.
Everything in this world is a game. Thinking you lost if you gave up in the middle, you’re stupid. The one who lasts till the end enjoying the game is the winner. That’s probably the rules of this world.
Till the next time x
