waking up was seriously the hardest part...
we had breakfast in a total american-like cafeteria.. I felt like i was in the OC or sumthin.. jst being in such a cafeteria itself gives u a sudden jolt that ure not in Malaysia any more. i was practically screaming..
"OOOHH!! MRS LEE!! U gota have a look at this cafeteria!!!!!"
owh.. and from the outside.. the cafeteria looks marvelouse!!
we had some extra time..so Joanna , Jessy and me went around making fwens...
then it was of to the hall for all the 150 campers.. goodness the campuss is sooo big.. ( imgine 10 times of ANDERSON!!!!) and we have to WALK!!!!! its gud exercise after a heavy meal ( did i mention that americans eat sooooo fweakin much!!)
We all got into this big hall..and on stage.. there were ppl doing aerobics... ( nope .. not the weird wans that u do in skewl.. this is white ppl aeroebics!!!!!)
so.. what else cud we do?? we joined in!! yay!! so.. yeah.. then we started our 1st talk.. It was all about learning bout our own strengths and sharpening our beliefs... There were soo many group activities.. where we had to practically run around the hall finding for gourp of 3's and 5;s or as they say you'd have to " pay the price for not acting fast enough"what i learned..
3 reasons why people dun suceed in life
1. They have no goals
2. They have no plan
3. They are not fast enough
the 4 rules for Discovery Camp Summit 2007
1. Step out of your comfort zone
3. Be supportive
4. Take notes
Communication is the key to unity
The 1st step to leadership is self leadership. You can't give what you don't have
Why people keep on doing bad stuff :
R.E.P.O.H = Repitition, Easy, Pleasue, Often, Habit
always ask yourself
CAN I? = Constant And Never Ending Improvement
throught all the team work.. i got to meet soo many peeps.. it was crazy!!!! Then Marlon Smith( the person hu did most of the talking) brought out/... THE WHEEL.........
this wheel.. ahd every freezin think u fantasized bout on it.. apple vids, tv's, credit cards.. wtv!!. so they cud bring up the wheel anytime.. shout a name.. and u get a freakin thing that gets everywan going... " wooohhh!!!!!!!"
then we all went to makan...
and when we got back.. we splited into our groups... 11 groups all together.. and we had our tatoos... owwh.. when i called my mom she was like
" Sabrina, those better not be real ones"
i was in group 7.. the dragon,, * roooarr*,, tell u ther truth.. i have no idea at all what sounds dragons makes..then we sat with our groups.. and had another toalk by Marlon.. we learned about controling our lifes.
My perception is my reality, what i focus on is what i get
F.E.A.R = False Expectations Appearing . Real
There is no such thing as fear
I will lead, Not follow
If i don't take action, what would it cost me?
I am the Voice
Each one teach one, Each one reach one
then came then signature event of the day... The board breaking.. sounds scary no??
1st we wrote down all our fears andwtv taht was stopping us from achiving our goals on one side of the board ( did i mention that the board is crazy giler thick??!!!)
2ndly, we wrote down who we were breaking the board for and what would happend after we brpke the board on the other side
3rdly.. it was time to store all our energy and do sum chopping exercises.
then,, we broke the freakin board!!!ooh.. it was such a great experience!!
at first.. Felix.. the guy who was coching us to break the board wasd like
" Ok.. all asians out there.. nope, the board ain't bigger than u!"
at first it was really hard..
I failed like 3 times b4 i cud xtually break it.. and when i broke it i was like
" Girl, u good!!!"
I was exited giler la... and everyone was sooo suportive..
Then we had a short break where we took the oppourtunitie to take piks with the great ppl who took time , money and effort to come all the way from all parts of the world to lead us in the camp... they were great ppl!! awesome!! and jst great role models... So.. applause for theese great ppl
and there's Denny's... his 35 and his gona be a great dad some day... he was like me, Joanna and Jessy's daddy throughtout the camp... owh and he learns Kung-Fu!! ( every daddy has sum embarassing hidden skill behind him!!) I would just lke to thank Denny for all his words of encouragement and all the times he would jst come over and make us laugh.. yea-p Denny, ure gonna be a great dad one day.. and that kid is gona be so lucky.. The last event for the day was a show produced by MTV. We had it in one of the 2 cinema's in the University.. ( Yea-p!! they have freakin cinemas!!).. Felix had a few words with us b4 the movie started.. The movie was called Freedome Writers.. I can't really tell u what it is about cause it was jst so complicated ( but good!).. there were ppl drying from the starting to the ned of the movie.. so yea-p itt was good.. you should go check it out..
The we walked back to our dorms.. Joanna and her roomate Coral came to my room.. Coral is unbelievable.. u think i have energy? wait till you meet Coral.. gosh.. i miss Coral sooo much.. she's a great sport.. and crazy funny...we made her to push ups for saying the word "MINE"
throught out the camp, a game was played between everyone.. if u say the word " MINE" u have to do 10 push ups for every MINE you said ..u could jst imagine how buff everyone got after the camp.. the Malaysians brought the game to Malaysia and we got sounded by a resturant owner for doing push ups in her store... alltogether.. i think i did over 100 push ups..
3rd,.. soon to come.. 0 lovely comments ✿
