Thank You, I Made It

Happy Monday Everyone!

 

Here I am, trying to get a great start off of my week. I woke up a bit late today, but actually, I don’t think it is that late considering I almost always sleep super late nowadays. But as soon as I wake up, I decided I wanted to start my day exercising. So I did. Afterward, I felt like I was gonna pass out so I prepared myself some breakfast. And now, I’m just sitting at my study table/work table/dining table/sleeping table.

I made a list last night of the things that I’m supposed to do this week. Although it’s still a little bit all over the place, at least I have something to cross off this week. So for today, I’m supposed to start work SERIOUSLY. But as you can see, it’s already past lunchtime, and all I’ve accomplished so far is exercising. But I don’t want any negativity this day, so I’m just gonna think of this as kinda prepping my day for something productive to happen.

Aside from working in a serious mode today, I am also planning on going out probably later this afternoon or tomorrow to pick up my package from UPS. I have no idea what it is, but I’m always excited to receive packages. It’s been so long that I’ve been cooped up inside my room, so excessive online shopping was bound to happen. I’d like to make a video about my quarantine online shopping haul, so I’m just kinda waiting for everything to arrive.

Now, this post is going nowhere important, but thank you for reaching this far. If you have seen my recent video regarding ‘a look at my virtual class’, I have mentioned that I am almost done with my school. And you guys know that I always announce everything firsthand in this blog rather than my any social media, so yes…

I finally graduated from a 2-year program at Langara College. It was such a freakin roller coaster show. Honestly, it was the second toughest of all the toughest experiences that I’ve had in my entire life. But right after I graduated, I was like, ‘so that’s it?’. Now I just wake up and think about nothing else and it feels so liberating knowing that I’ve passed every single one of those subjects that made me cry at night. I feel so proud of myself for making it through without failing a subject. And even if I did and I still made it through graduation this year, I’d still feel equally proud. Of course, I’m pretty sure lots and lots of you guys, from my blog readers to my YouTube subscribers, prayed and hoped for me to be able to make it, so a BIG THANKS TO YOU. You guys have been so supportive to me. I know I have shared a lot of my journeys with you, but you guys made it memorable for me as well. I came across a lot of opportunities and friends because of my YouTube channel. And those gave me such unique experiences and lessons that I never thought was possible for me.

My journey does not stop here, it is only another beginning of something better. So I hope that you’ll continue to be there with me through this blog and my social media. I’m in the middle of processing my work permit. In the meantime, I am working on WFH. But considering how things are getting back to normal in BC, I might start working on the office at the end of June 2020.

If you guys haven’t checked out my Instagram, please follow me as I’m mostly active on that platform. I’ll see you guys soon. Hopefully, we get to meet in person. And I’m considering sending out mail to each one of you(that is if you’re willing to share your address 😉), so do let me know in my email or IG.

 

Again, as always, you guys are awesome! I LOVE YOU!

 

xoxo,

Glaire

  1. I’m so grateful I checked your ig profile and found these gems! I became a fan of your yt channel because your videos were beautiful aesthetically and emotionally(?) idk what the right word is but I find your videos “healing.” In a sense that you’ve been very open in sharing about your struggles and how you got through it that it comforts and assures people to know they”ll also get through whatever they’re going through. I’m also a Canadian student aspirant but somehow things have been against my odds so I’ll have to cancel my application lodging for the second time and opt for Sept 2022 intake. Anyway, congratulations on being tough and going through all that! I’m also scared for the big change but reading this somehow assures me it’ll be worth it.

    ps. you have a very good way of your words too. I’ll be checking this blog out every once in a while! (this isnt to pressure you but a way for you to know that you writing these kind of stuff impacts other peoples lives too!)

    Keep being happy and brave!

    1. You are so sweet and awesome, J!! Omg thank you for the sweet message! I really really reallllly love reading things like this. You just made my day😟 And knowing that my contents impact you in some way, motivates me even more to continue what I’m doing.

      I do hope you get to lodge your application next year. I also had to defer it when I was just starting my application, so I know your frustration. But trust the process and enjoy every little bit you have with your family. Time flies super fast, right? ❤️

      I hope to meet you and hear from you every now and then! ✨

      tysm for making my day,

      1. Oh wow really? I’ve been feeling like a loser for having to defer my application. People make it feel like applying should be easy but I swear its nowhere near that. The process requires a lot of emotional strength and resilience. Even the small inconveniences make you want to scream at how unfair the world is. lmaoo. I don’t know if you felt the same but staying in this place feels so idk maybe choking? On the brighter side, my agency added other schools outside Ontario so I still have time to balance the ups and downs!

        True, time flies super fast. I’m claiming I’ll pop up a few months from now and tell you how happy I am for my approval and for you, you’ll be one step closer to your or. hahaha

        see you next time Glaire. Thanks for inspiring us.

      2. Oh yes, for sure! I definitely know what you’re feeling right now. Originally, my intake was for Sep 2017, but had to defer to May 2018 due to a personal reason—one of my life’s lowest points. Even before that I applied for a student visa in the US and ended up not going through with it, so it really took a while for me to even get started. Imagine ’cause I didn’t have any work that time and so I felt really helpless having no income whatsoever. I was always at home and hence I know that choking feeling you’re having. 🤣

        It’s all about perspective, I guess. I feel like if you continue looking forward to the day of your sp approval, maybe you’ll have more patience to your surroundings haha if that makes sense. But yes, claim it! Everything happens for a reason 🙂

        Good luck with everything 😊
