Getting told you’re bad at the only thing you’re good at

My interview today went horrible. For this I had to cry.
And the worst thing to hear from your supervisor was to
 consider quitting the topic you've chose. Like wtf. One thing
for sure: no way I'm gonna quit and start over. Apparently
my framing of words are incorrect making the entire piece hard
to follow. Funny because the rest of my classmates find my piece
manageable. I really don't know what to do now.
What should I do folks? What should I do...

By the way, my respect for actress Angelina Jolie really.
She's beyond a strong and beautiful woman. I wish to be
strong as well.

 My collection of plastic juice bottles - saved for storage/DIY/home deco purpose!

I decided to try out these frozen instant macarons that I've bought in the supermarket. They are not bad at all! A bit chewy. And abit ugly looking too. 

 Totally addicted to this 'aloe vera' yogurt drink, while some of my friends creeps out of the floating pieces in it..

I'm Feeling: lost and drained
Music: Jhameel - Waves - Seriously, I am in love with him and his music. 
Food: oreo's 
Drink: tea


  1. Jammer dat je interview niet goed ging. Houd de moed!
    Oe, waar heb je die macarons gekocht? ^^

  2. Keep your head up dear (:

  3. Don't give up! If you enjoy doing it then keep at it and if you quit now, then you'll never improve on it :) Everything takes time!

    Keep it up!


  4. Lots of goodies here. I am sorry to hear about your interview. :/ You're still awesome though!

  5. No one can make you feel a certain way unless you accept what they say. If you don't believe their words are true, then ignore them and follow your heart. Love you sweety, don't give up! :)

    Love, Moon

  6. Those macaroons still look good! :)
    One horrible interview means you'll likely do better and prep more for the next! I'm not sure what it's for exactly, but you'll always know what to expect later on (:
    Maybe they didn't like your proposal, but instead of scraping all your efforts, you can change what they didn't understand, such as the wordings! Good luck and I hope everything goes well !!
    You have my support :D

  7. Oh no, sounds like enough to put anyone down :-( What kind of interview was it, if I may ask? Chin up, girl, things will get better!

  8. That's too bad! Mei, keep your head up, I know you can do it! :D

    Love the sketches!
    And speaking of strawberries, did you see my pineberries?

  9. Sorry to hear that about your interview :( so good that you're defiant not to quit and start over though; stick with it! I swear half the time the supervisors never know what they're talking about. They can't see past their dusty textbooks and understand what you're trying to do!

  10. Geef de moed niet op! Je kunt het wel :) Ik heb ook altijd moeite met dingen verwoorden.. dan kies ik soms net het verkeerde woord, en mijn taalgebruik is altijd veel te informeel.. maar ze moeten het maar goedkeuren! :P Volgens mij heb je net als ik even een pinguin nodig ;) :

  11. never quit hun! only you know what you yourself is capable of, don't let anyone else put you down

  12. Woah love your blog, awesome pics x

  13. Hi lovely,
    I'm sorry to hear about your interview, but don't worry tomorrow will be a better day!
    Love your selection of pics!
    See you soon

  14. Don't give up! Keep going! I think it's alright if you cry every once in awhile, it shows that you're human.

  15. Hang in there, Mei. You can do whatever you set your mind to, and I know you're super strong. Don't give up!

  16. You know what ? it is for no one to tell you what you can and can't be good at ! Don't let those people do that to you :) You should be able to achieve YOUR dreams ! it is for no one else to control it or say you cant ! Thanks for sharing :) Please do drop by my blog and follow if you like !

  17. The strawberries are sooo cute :) and love your comment about the macarons hahaha 'a bit ugly looking too!'
    made me laugh.
    Sorry to hear about your interview :( don't give up! maybe just ask specifically what you need to change, and how? good luck xxx

  18. Haha, ugly macarons :P

    Don't give up! That's such a mean thing for the supervisor to say, to anyone. Someone like that should be giving you advice on how to improve, not tell you to quit. That's just unacceptable! :( Don't give up, do your best ♥ ♥ ♥

  19. When things go bad for me, I personally like to eat my emotions. Judging by your photos, you have a nice variety of that to choose from ;)


  20. don't give up! we all get put down once but we just have to stand back up and keep working on it. if it's something you love, keep practicing and then sooner or later it would be too perfect for anyone to say no to you!

  21. I'm sorry that your interview didn't go well. :c
    It always hurts when someone says that you're horrible at something you've always been confident in; confidence really takes a hit!

    Hang in there! I'm sure your piece was great. Never, never quit!

  22. Ohh that sounds quite bad at all! Don't give up - you can learn from a defeat and this makes you stronger for sure. It's better not to listen to your supervisor of quitting, there is always a second chance.

  23. hey! don't feel bad about the interview! :) this is just a bump in the road..! there will still be loads of more opportunities in the future! :)

  24. love this pics and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
    Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

  25. Wat vervelend van je interview :( Gewoon doorzetten!
    Die macarons zijn van de Lidl of niet? Heb ik laatst ook gehad, zijn nog best lekker :D

  26. Head up Mei, don't let one interview put you down! You're super amazing and everyone knows it :) Love your tin strawberries, I kind of want to have a bite hehe. I regret not buying Arizona tea when they still sold it here because the bottles are so pretty :( haha xx

  27. Jou foto's zijn altijd zo mooi! <3

  28. Oh no, sounds like those people don't deserve you anyway!! Chin up, you will find your place one day! x

  29. Thanks so much for your sweet words, they made my day!
    I'm sorry to hear the interview went wrong but keep following what you want to do!

    Have a great weekend,

  30. Your supervisor shouldn't be saying that! They should be your mentor and encourage you to do better. Just keep moving forward to improve but don't give up and quit on something that you put a lot effort into.

    Angelina Jolie is indeed a strong woman. She's so grounded and with that aspect I admire her so much.

  31. Oh no, don't ever let your spirit go low and blue!
    You're better than words and far more versatile to be judged so quickly!
    I hope to see you sunny always!

  32. I'm so sorry to hear about your interview :( Take on any feedback and keep working on it!

    I love aloe vera drink but aloe vera yoghurt? That's weird, haha.

  33. I hope you're not feeling too down :( Don't give up hope! :D

  34. Awwh chin up chick! Persistence is key. Keep your head up and just try your best. Don't compare yourself to others!! :) <3

  35. "The moment you're about to quit is the moment right before the miracle happens."
    So don't give up! Keep your head up. :D
    Mhhhm, French Macarons. I love it.
    Have a great day Mei. xx

  40. Don't feel discouraged, you can be a strong woman too :)
    I always love your pictures, so interesting!

  41. That is terrible :( But don't let ONE person let you down! Keep doing what you're doing--I bet you are amazing! Just because your work doesn't please one person doesn't mean it's bad. Good luck dear <3

  47. Cheer up dear! It was only ONE of ur interview. MANY will be coming so be PREPARE and do ur BEST. I know u can do it ^^

  48. Your title struck me a lot as I've recently felt this way too. It really sux to know that one could do something so badly when it is something one is otherwise good at. I feel for you.

    On the bright side, the frozen macarons look yummy. Same goes for the aloe drink.

  49. so sorry to hear what you heard! always believe in yourself and your gut!

  50. Hey Mei!
    Wat lastig! Is het een interview over je thesis/scriptie?
    Hopelijk gaat het nu beter dat!
    Moet je het trwns in het Engels schrijven? Ik dacht misschien kan k je dan
    helpen als dat zo is ;) succes! x
