[OP]: Rapture | Sunday Salutations

Happy Sunday fellow bloggers! I hope you guys had a fantastic week and are ready to get a new week started! This week like many other weeks have been hectic in my work life. I’m still exhausted from all the overtime I’ve been expected to put in, but I can’t really complain about it. Lots of work is better than no work, and who knows how long this boom will last!

This week I’m featuring the OP from this season’s Juuni Taisen. It’s one of the many anime’s I’ve been keeping up with this fall, but while the others I can wait a few weeks to watch, I haven’t given up making sure to watch this one whenever a new episode is released.

Okay guys, it’s time to get a bit real with you. As majority of you know, I’m on the path to becoming a licensed Architect. I took a break between mid-August till recent because I was studying for an exam. And if we chat on LINE or twitter, than you already know this little tidbit of information.  Well, I found out my result around Thursday, and it was not good. I didn’t succeed.

So, that goes without saying it’s back to the drawing board. I moped and sulked about it for a day or 2, but at the end of the day it’s just an exam. My take away from it at least is that I did considerably well this time around compared to the first time I took it over a year ago. I’m gathering more materials to study for the next round of exams, which I am aiming to take Mid-January. I’ve resolved that no matter how many times I will fail I will continue to pursue this goal. There’s just no way around that. It needs to happen. It’s going to happen.

So, I want to thank you all for being apart of my journey, and for all the whole-hearted support. It means a lot that so many of you believe in me and my passion for this field! I won’t be disappearing from the blog during my study time again. I’ve realized that I need to just find a better balance for studying, work and hobbies. I found myself going crazy when I was just studying non-stop.

If I were being completely honest, this last fail actually made me feel like maybe I wasn’t meant to pursue this goal. What if I’m really not made to do this? But those are just so negative thoughts. Talking to a lot of you post-exam made me realize that I have the drive and the passion for this, so I shouldn’t give up. Naja and I decided that I needed to be more like Deku and keep persevering through it and never give up. To which Mel then sent me this image of encouragement: IMG_7502

Again, thank you all for the love and support. It’s nice to know you are all in my corner rooting for me when I’m feeling at my lowest.
