Of Failure and Success

Since Monday last week I was waiting for that call. The week had passed and still nothing, no call. Do I have to cry? Can I accept the fact that there are things in life that I could not achieve no matter how persistent am I? In life we have to accept the truth. I failed. But not big time really.

Well, why would I leave my present children? my present environment? I am happy with them and that counts the most.

Then this afternoon fifteen minutes before four I received a call. Wow! I was chosen as one of the 10 contestants for Test Drive a Mac Contest as sponsored by Today newspaper of the MediaCorp Press and Apple Asia. To be chosen as one of the 10 contestants among hundreds of applicants is already an achievement. Surely, I am not a failure after all.

So on Thursday, I will be attending the briefing and familiarisation session at the Today's office at Raffles Place. I will also collect the Mac on that night which I will be test-driving for three weeks. For those 3 weeks, I will write entries about my Mac experiences.

I am so happy and excited about this new development in my blogging life. I will try my best to make it to the preliminary and even to the Finals. Please wish me luck.

Again, I wish to thank the people behind this contest.

Luchie said...

Matapoor:

Thanks for visiting me and for congratulating me.
Well, about being a failure if one's want is not achieved, pa effect lang yun.
I will visit your site too...

Luchie said...

what i mean is that they didn't call me so i was not accepted dun sa school na yon na inaplayan ko. so sad pero of course, i am not a failure actually.

Wow! That's cool luchie. At least you'll be living out what most people dream about (like me)..test-driving a Mac. Here's hoping you win, too! Cheers!

Sachiko:
the mac is the apple computer.since it got different OS, i am not yet confident to use it. i need to post entries for the contest in order to win. and wahhhh! i forgot to save before posting, i lose my entry, i wasted my time writing. i better sleep now and do it tomorrow. aiyah, morning na pala ngayon.it is difficult to switch laptops. i am so clumsy now. bear with me.
thanks for dropping sachiko.
