the caps lock button is my best friend

EDIT// Join my icon contest! I will be excepting entries from March 16th. Voting will start once I have 5+ entries and the winner will be announced the day after voting has closed.

In true ‘Chynna-style’, I will now proceed to start this post with a lot of random capital letters and punctuation…


I am now calm. You are probably wondering what the reason for this outburst is. I HAVE BEEN OFFERED AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO CHINA! FOR 3 MONTHS! TO STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY THERE! FOR £150! WHICH IS BLOODY WELL CHEAP *turns off caps lock*

I think I may have abused that button slightly. Okay, so I said I’ve been offered the opportunity BUT I don’t even know if I’m on the program yet… so, maybe the excitement is a little too much. I mean, if do get onto the program (there’s 10 places) it would be such an amazing experience. Like, just mind-blowing. I mean to be able to study at a university in China would be a amazing. And the price is really cheap as well because my university have secured funding for the rest of the trip which was £800 per student, so we only have to pay for our accommodation which is £150. Imagine! That’s less than half of what I’m paying now for my accommodation and for 3 months!

Of course, there are many things to take into consideration. The fact that I will be across the other side of the world for 3 months and won’t be able to just hope onto a plane and see friends, family and Rob just like that was one of them. I mean, of course there’s always Skype but it’s not the same. And hopefully if Rob and I are still together I would miss him like a maniac. But again, this is just an opportunity I feel that I cannot pass up. My lecturer said there would be other opportunities but definitely not like this one, not for long and not for as cheap for the amount of time. I would love to go on the others when I’m offered but this one is just too in my face to ignore. There is also the fact that I have to think about where I am to live when I come back (if, of course, I get onto the program…).

SEE ALSO:  Something knocking on my door...

My mother was like, “If you want to go, then it is up to you at the end of the day,” and the more I thought about it the more I definitely want to go. Two of my friends have applied as well and we’re hoping that no one else on our course is too interested, so we’d be shoo-ins to go on the trip but then again, who knows?

I just got from B’s house actually… It was nice that she invited me then I realised that it’s only because she had to interview me for her coursework (one of our modules in researching for communications). It was nice, though, because we sat and watched Hollyoaks together but I felt that she made it a bit awkward when she was talking about going to Blok (this nightclub) with “the girls”. So, what? Am I not one of the girls anymore? Thanks (!)

In an attempt to make money, I have signed up to AdSense… hint. I badly need a job. (cry)

    Ooh 🙂 I was given the opportunity to go to China as well. I was in fifth grade when I was offered. I turned it down though. I was too young. Plus, they asked me to come during the summer. I don’t like going to school in the summer, who does? 😀

    I was going to be an exchange student, and all the costs were covered besides needing a translator and all the school supplies.

    Hope you make enough money to go :3

    Geez-a-lou! That’s awesome! and for THREE months at that! Dude, I’m excited and I wasn’t even offered it! xD

    Missing friends and family would definitely be a drawback, but I think it’s still something you should do if you can. You can make a lot of new friends there, as well. That would be really cool if you and your two other friends could go together, plus fun.

    I would love to do a study abroad or some type of exchange program. Maybe when I get to college? Either way, good luck if you apply and whatnot!

    Also, I moved websites! I got my own domain since my host oh so kindly just shut down her site without any warning. But, oh well. I’m trying to get everything together with it.

    Good luck with hosting your upcoming icon contest ^__^!

    I love caps lock when I`m having a freakout. LOL! I`m like. AHSDJKADHAJSKDGASKDBA ASDMBASN — . .. . then add some caps lock comment. LOL! Except that I press shift and type whatever it is. .__.!

    Congratulations on being offered an opportunity of going to china (: I hope you`ll be able to go 😛 I hope there’s no strings attached to the offer :O!

    wow :P! Learning in China and studying there is a great opportunity! You must take it!

    If the love is true, Rob and you will still be together. There is nothing to worry about. Because love is love and things happen in life. What if there`s a business trip in the future? sometimes, we need to experience these things :P! So we can know how to handle it properly in the future :P!

    I hope your friends also got invited and offered to go on the trip as well 🙂 Whats better than having an opportunity yourself is having your friends come along ^__^!

    seems like you had fun at B’s house ^_^! Hope there’s more hangout time to come :P!

    Take care ^__^!

    Well, actually there is something that I didn’t mention in my blog about him, haha. He kind of lives across the country from me. ;x I didn’t mention it because I didn’t want people to think that I was like crazy or something for getting so upset about some guy that doesn’t even live near me, but yeah.

    Wow, that is great that you’re having the chance to go to China! I wish I had the chance to just get away to a different country right now, haha.

    I was interested at one point to do like a studying abroad thing for a semester. I thought it’d be good for me in like “growing up” and stuff. In the end, I chickened out. I still think that it’d definitely be a good experience, though.

    Hopefully you’re able to go!

    Yes, do not let the opportunity pass you up! I had the opportunity to study in London before and passed that up. I didn’t wanna go by myself because my friend’s parents wouldn’t let her go. I can just imagine how great of an experience that would’ve been! Although, the cost of me studying in London would be much more expensive than your studying in China. Hahaha.

    Keep us updated on what you decide to do! I’m very excited for you! Btw, do you speak the language?

  6. March 17, 2011 / 6:59 pm

    Btw, let me know how Ad Sense works for you. I’m still in need of income, too, and anything will help. Hahaha.

  7. March 17, 2011 / 11:00 pm

    Wow, that’s really amazing! That’s unheard of to be honest! Usually trips like that run in (at the very least) $1,000 or so! You definitely have to go on that. That sucks that it’s limited invitation, but I guess that would be expected. I know where I’m from, there’s going to be at least 100 or so people signing up. XD Hopefully you get lucky and everyone forgets about it or just are’t as interested.

    As far as your friends and boyfriend goes, they need to realize how chances like these are once in a blue moon; they don’t happen often! Friends come and go later in life anyways and if your boyfriend cares about you, he’d let you go. As you said, there is always Skype and whatnot. As bad as this may sound, you might forget about them over time; you’ll probably be having so much fun!

  9. March 19, 2011 / 8:52 pm

    Yes, thats what I was like:O Haha:L

  11. March 20, 2011 / 12:01 am

    This is a cute layout ^_^

    GO! GO! GO! GO!

    China sounds so fun! Like, I don’t support their government, but going there for that cheap to study is just perfect! If you don’t go, I’ll have to take your place :p

    & yes, CAPSLOCK is a pretty hot feature :).

    Thanks. Well, at least you got to make friends and had a fun time with them 🙂

    it really is awful what’s happened there! The sad thing is that so many people are being affected, and a lot of stupid ignorant buffoons say that “Japan deserved it” it’s like WTF is wrong withy you?

    twitter is amazing because of how quickly news can spread on it! how is your family? all safe I hope!

    and I live inland in Kenya, so i’m never too badly affected. but unfortunately we have other disasters… 🙁

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! you must be so glad! as your mom said, at the end of the day it’s your decesion – you need to make sure you’ll be happy wherever it is you end up. i’m waiting to hear back from some univerisities as well, need to make college decisions soon…
