Pain before pleasure. No pain, no gain. You have to be a tough cookie, or else you’ll be eaten.

Those are are the three mantras that I keep in mind whenever I experience pain and hardship, both physically and emotionally. I’ve been through a lot lately, and I’ve been very busy. I even have to crave for some “Alone Time”. Haha.

Can you still recall that awesome feeling that you felt after finishing all of your tasks? That’s what I’m feeling right now! Finally! I’m done! I’m just hoping that the results will be good. 🙂

I have to say the cliche that I never thought I could get through every thing that I went through for the past years of my life. Haha. It is really true, that pains comes first before pleasure.

One of my professors once told us, “No pain, no gain”. And yeah, shit just got real! He gave us PAIN during our exams. Almost all of us are mentally distorted after the exam. Haha. But really, I’ll never forget that mantra! That’ll be in my heart forever. 🙂

It is hard to live in a world of predators. Either they’ll eat you or they’ll destroy you. I don’t deny the fact that I’m a predator too. I have to be one. Or else, I’ll die! 🙂 Putting aside the exaggerations, I was writing a term paper (I forgot what subject was that for) and I was looking for a sentence to finish or to summarize every thing that I wrote. so I came up with “You have to be a tough cookie, or else you’ll be eaten“. I’m not sure what came up to me, I’m not even sure if that sentence has a substance. 😛 But it works in real life. If you’re surrounded by “negative people”, there is no room for you to be weak. 🙂
