Rejected on Valentine’s Day

15 Feb

Happie V Dae guys! .. I know I know I’m a little late. But only because I’m feeling so dejected and so I thought I’m entitled to claim the benefits from Operation Total Rejection… you know pout, grumble, stare, stone, drink, complain and then experience the wonders of insomnia.  But then I guess I procrastinated for 26 hours too, before this came live. I’m just so terrible at being on time sometimes. I blame hormonal imbalance.  I mean hey, what’s a girl to do?! My “confession” failed.. LOL  so here goes…

Valentine’s 2009 – present from the mail

Yeah the real dejection wasn’t the flowers wiltering.. I applied for the JET programme. Was all screams and squeals when the shortlistment for interviews was announced and I got selected. But LOL truth be told, I kinda screwed up the interview so I guess its sayorana for now~  But I HAD to find out about it on V day. Trust me this feels worse than some guy dumping me dat day. ウワァァ—–。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。—–ン!!!! …
Actually they sent the time bomb on Friday 13 (hard not to believe in superstition eh) but I only managed to check my mail on 14 Feb.. Oh well at least I have a bunch of Roche chocolates to drown my sorrows in. LOL

By the way, JET’s a teaching / culture  exchange programme in Japan, targetted at foreigners. So if you’d like to move your cute butt over there for some jappo experience, you may wish to try this out. Applications are open in October every year – depends on which country you’re from though. Man I should most probably blog about my long drawn application. Maybe after I recover from hormonal imbalance. Maybe…

    Wow that’s a pretty harsh to receive the news on Valentine’s Day. Though personally I could never do the JET programme as I usually can’t handle dealing with kids.

    Just like operation “Valkyrie” – takes a lot of courage and effort even thou they failed. Dont give up.

    Cheer up, you can always try again if you feel like it later. For now, take time out to do other stuff maybe?

    @ Adun: LOL just flush them all down the toilet bowl. That’d be one way of handling kids :|

    @ Zinc: I have always been in the singles club -.-! LOL

    @ 牛肉面: LOL sure sure! But then again I’m not sure how fresh the chocolates are. You still wanna try? LOL

    @ EstoKun : Operation Valkyrie was so near to succession. The underlying factor was luck, which they did not have. awwwww.

    @ ron~ : thanks for all your help during the application period too!

    @ Panther: yeah need to find other outlets to vent my frustrations. HOHOHO~
