"My life and Singapore aren't perfect"

Every decision you made, you have to pay the price.

Every decision may be hard to make, but once you made the decision, you have to pay the consequences. In life, decision making is not easy, and you never know, something that unexpected will happen to you.

SGEduLab, one of my crazy idea I thought of one day while surfing the internet, and thinking of someone who had changed my life from a person who is not so confident it his life to a person who much confident in his life. Time flies, things happen just like a blink of eyes, everything seem to be so dramatic to me.

I am a person who thinks he is a hero to send letters and complain about the school 2 years ago. The school found out not too long after that, I got into trouble because of it. From that day onwards, I told myself, not to be too close to anybody, not to be noisy in anything, not to be helping anyone out, just isolate myself. I became a person with no confident in his life, not sure where he is going, not sure what my goal in my life. That might be the price I paid of the decision of sending that letter.

Someone had changed my life, Miss JC, who had helped me along not just in English alone. She is the one who make me know where I am going, what is my goal in my life, and also, got back my confident. I now might still be a person who not talk a lo, but some how, I started to learn how to express myself; just like a new born baby now learning how to walk.

If someone asked me, what is my greatest achievement in my life? I might reply “My greatest achievement perhaps is the change in my life from a person who lack with confident to a person with much confident.” SGEduLab is not my greatest achievement, I must say. But I think that my greatest achievement is the change in me.

SGEduLab have a dramatic change since its opening. From it got tomorrow-ed to The Strait Times Interview, to it published and the site got over 1,000 memberships. I sometimes wonder did I make the right decision from the being. Sometimes I wonder can I continue to handle the website, or should I ask some people to help me along. How can I make all notes available before people needs it, how long will it last? Maybe it is the price I pay for the decision I made. I did not regret on the decision I made, I am happy with it.

Why? Because, I am helping the others in the same community and I believe in my decision.

Indeed, a price is tagged onto every decision we make. When some of our decisions cause us to have nightmares, we must learn from our mistakes. By now, you should have learnt that choices come with consequences, therefore, never make any decisions on a spur of the moment.

I have witnessed the transformation in you. From my point of view, it was your inner resolve that made you the much more confident person you are today. No one can help a person who doesn’t want to change.

How are you coping with your studies? From the closing paragraphs of this entry, I sense that SGEduLab is taking its toil on you. Hopefully you can work things out and not be unduly stressed during the examination period.

I admire the way you make dreams turn into reality at your age. Never lose sight of your goals but work hard to fulfill them :).

3.35 am!!!? No wonder so many grammatical errors.

No good. Growing boy like you need lots of sleep and exercise. My son is your age and he sleeps at 10-something every night.

Suggest you get some friends to help out in the other project.

Thanks. Yes, somhow SGEduLab was giving me some problem. Now, it like a place for me to dis-stress. I will not make it another load for me to carry.


Sometimes I didn't sleep for 48 hours! Ha! Ha! Ha! I know is not good, but no many things to do.

Yea, I am getting some people to help in this. 3 people, cannot do all the work.

You know what, you've learnt a great lesson. I am afraid to say this cos' I wasnt sure but I think I've found someone similar to me. I've been in an environment where complains r very common and nothing is done to resolve the problems. And I feel that it's useless to complain and i tried to make the people realise it but they refuse. Finding strategy is worth than complaining. Use your energy productively and not by complaining. That's what I always tell myself.

When I read this entry and see ur achievements, I feel good. You found urself a way to counter ur problems and not only urs, but many. What I am trying to say is I think I found another cool guy. Just that he had achieve smth i didnt. That Cool guy is u. :D

Those notes are beneficial to many. Thanks.
