Stressful BUT I love it.

Ok, I hate to admit this but I love joining competition. I'm a competition junkie.

I just like the adrenaline rush I get. I feel so damn alive.

I also like joining competition because I learn more about myself and other people.

I get to see if a person is productive or not. I get to see if the person is an asshole and I get to see who can keep their head calm when hell breaks loose.

To be honest, I never cared about the other competitors because whatever the competition do is none of my business. I'm more interested in what I do.

So I joined this 3 page spread magazine making competition (NIE MAG INC 2010). We had to make our own cover, articles and comics. We even had to do interviews.
AND so we did...

Man, as the leader or editor for this magazine, I learnt some new stuff. For one, I learnt to NEVER EVER underestimate or overestimate somebody.

I have this teammate who is like a mystery card. I didn't know what to do with her. She can't write or draw so I was like, what can she do to help with the magazine?
My dad said that I should just give her a task and see how she does.
And holy crap, my dad was right. I let her edit the cover of the magazine and it came out beautifully.
So the mystery card became a trump card.

Then, I have this other teammate who seems smart and productive but actually isn't. She talks more than she does. She's just not effective. Well, at the end, she was slightly more productive.

And then, I have another teammate who is SUPER EFFECTIVE and PRODUCTIVE. I totally loved her and I feel guilty for slightly overworking her.

As a leader, I tried to give them space and allow them to be creative. I wasn't one of those control freak leaders. I'm a cool cucumber kind.
I believe in trusting my teammates. I want their creativity to shine and surprise me.
After all, a leader job is to create a team that allow each member to strut their stuff.

Anyhow, we worked pretty hard on it. To be honest, I didn't kinda like how everything came out but whatever. Hopefully, we win because we all really need the scholarship. (Well, I need it anyway!)

Eventhough, this was highly stressful but I enjoyed it. So if I become an editor now or work for some magazine, I kinda don't mind.

Anyhow, it's finally over. It was nice & stressful while it lasted. Well, maybe my teammates & I should celebrate later for a job well done.

Now, it's time to focus on something else.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
