Start of new semester begins in a couple of days for me. I hope that this new semester brings even more light and hopes to come. To all the freshies, welcome to your new world. Even when you’re feeling scared and intimidated by new guys,classes and situations, here’s how you can find your confidence!

She shows so much poise on the red carpet, you'd never know if she has the jitters.


THINK: ‘I’ve done what I can to look my best.‘ Stop obsessing your outfit; there’s nothing you can do now anyway. Just focus on why you’re really here: to learn more and be successful. You just have to remember though, DO NOT overdress! you’re not going for a party you know.

DO: Smile! if it feels forced, think of smiling on the inside and you’ll start to beam on the surface. Then keep your shoulders down and relax, take a deep breath and walk through the doors like you belong there.

SAY: ‘Hi!’ to everyone you know. If you’re afraid that people won’t remember you, reaching out to other people first shows you’re not intimidated by them; even if you are. And don’t avoid halls where cliques hang out together either. Remember you can have your own group, too!


THINK: ‘It’s only one of those get-to-know-one-another sessions. Nothing to be scared about.’ Do not skip orientations! Be punctial and friendly. Make sure you join in the games and don’t be anti-social. Just have some fun, girl!

DO: Plan ahead. Walk the orientation hall with the guy/girl you sat or chatted with earlier. If she/he is alone, all the better! if you’re all by yourself, try to make small talk with someone who’s also alone. Chances are she’s glad you too the initiative.

SAY:I’m glad I met you!’ Tell your new-found mate that you’re happy to have made a new friend. Make positive and genuine comments about her clothing or personality. Remember to exchange phone numbers!

Paul Walker

His role as Dean Sampson in She's All That is the epitome of a jerk. Lucky for us, he's a great guy in person. Oh, how we adore this hunk!


THINK: ‘He’s just being immature.’ If his remarks hurt, remind yourself that his rude opinion isn’t necessarily for real (most times, isn’t!)

DO: Hold you head high, literally. As hard as it may be, look straight ahead and keep walking. Also, don’t shrink in any body part that he calls out. You shouldn’t change who you are or what you look like for one ignorant dude!

SAY: Nothing. If you don’t give him attention he wants, he won’t see you as ‘target’ in the future. Don’t be rude (like showing him the middle finger) because that’s just ill-mannered!

IN CLASS: IMPRESS you lecturers

THINK: ‘I’m going to work hard and finish my assignments on time’. Remembering how you made it through secondary school will motivate you to do your best, even in your toughest subject! if you think you can, YOU CAN!

DO: Get there early. Score a seat near the front (blame it on bad eyesight if you’re worried about looking like a suck-up!). Plus, don’t hesitate or feel shy to ask questions during lessons. It shows you’re listening.

SAY: ‘How was your weekend?’ Ask your lecturer that question after you say ‘hi’ to her. A friendly question shows that you don’t see her as just a meanie who can make or break your grades!

P/S: Remembered my first day. . . it’s kinda of a blur because were moving pretty fast to met the iternary for each day and boy it was PACK! but I enjoyed it so much nonetheless. (^_^)


Yes you! ehem ehem… Developing a positive mindset is one of the most powerful life strategies there is. Using powerful positive thinking techniques, visualizations and positive affirmations, it is possible to achieve whatever you want.

The idea behind these techniques is pretty simple. Most of us grow up learning to put ourselves for any real real or imagined error.

We grow up believing certain things about ourselves and comparing ourselves negatively to others.

Affirmations are statements of acceptance that one uses to allow the manifestation of you destiny.

They are powerful and positive thoughts and statements. To do positive affirmations, you need to eliminate the negativity around you. You must first believe that you can manifest your destiny no matter what it is whether it is to achieve the your 4.0 CGPA or even get the job that you wanted.

Affirmations encourage you to think about good things rather than to think negatively. They help you to focus on your strengths and can increase you confidence.

By thinking positively you are more likely to get what you want and solve any problems.

You can do it!

You can do it!

Spend a few minutes thinking of what you regard as negative aspects of your personality. Go away now for 10 minutes and write list of any and all things that could be considered as negative about yourself.

Once you have got your list on a new blank sheet, create a list of all the positive things.

Look at the lists and realize you are neither wholly despicable nor entirely admirable. You are both these things and these 2 facets of your personality create your entire self.

This concept has grown increasingly popular due to the publishing phenomenon of Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Secret’ (also a 2006 film) and The Law of Attraction series by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks.

These books and, teachers express similar ideas to Napoleon Hill’s Classic, ‘Think and Grow Rich’. Byrne was inspired in particular by new thought pioneer, Wallace D. Wattles’ 1910 book, ‘The Science of Getting Rich’.

Here, the power of affirmations will create success, romance, help you to lose the weight that you wanted , build self-confidence -everything and anything that you want.

It will also help you find even your true calling, give your life meaning and allow you to have inner peace as you accomplish your goals.

P/S: I found it very useful as a friend brought me up back again and make me realize that there are more to life than mere haters that want to ruin yours.
