Anger management, much?

Recently, on the radio, I heard some good public broadcast that tells people to not litter, smoke and etc.

Anyhow, I heard one advising people not to get angry by holding their breath and counting to ten or thinking about cute things such as puppies.
Listening to that really pissed me off.

If anger was so easy to control or get rid off, wouldn't people get rid or control it by now? Well, obviously, it's not so easy.
And do you really think that in the moment of rage, a person is going to hold his breath or think of puppies? So yea. I'm not saying it's impossible but I'm saying that it's hard.

And do you really think that an angry person likes that they get angry easily? Don't you think they want to change to? If it were that simple, don't you think that the anger would be gone?

So I find this advice pointless, stupid and demeaning.

True, some people can control their anger better...but not all. And this applies to me.

I snap more than I like to admit and I'm not proud of it.

Being a person with a bad temper sucks.

Have you watched durarara? If you have, I'll say that being angry is like being Shizuo Heiwajima.

If you haven't, I'll still explain why angers sucks.

Anyhow, Shizuo Heiwajima is the epitome of every bad tempered person, only that it is really exaggerated.

He hates violence A LOT but he uses it the most. I mean, every time, he gets angry, he will get violent.
He does not enjoy it, one bit because well, he hurts himself (his bones break every time, he lifts a vending machine in anger) and he hurts everything around him including innocent people, the environment and loved ones.

It's the same with angry people. When you get angry, you hurt the people around you as well as yourself.
So yea. It's not fun being angry.

But then again, being angry in the moment makes you feel powerful. The anger feeds your ego, giving you an illusion of power and strength.
But as soon as that moment pass, you regret everything you do.

Just like Shizuo Heiwajima said, 
"I am the biggest coward. I distance people away because I don't want to hurt them."

I kinda agree with what he said. Sometimes, we, bad tempered people are worried that we will hurt others and ourselves so we distance ourselves. So yea.

I'm not saying that you can't control anger. I'm just saying that it's not as simple as it is and you never really know how hard that person has been trying to control it.

Can you imagine the feeling of frustration, anger and sadness to know that you can't even control your own emotion?

So, all I am saying is that, angry people sometimes don't want to be angry but that's just the way they are reacting. 
But I'm not saying that people should stop controlling their anger and let it be. I'm just saying, before you judge, think twice.

And to every hot tempered person out there, keep on doing your best on controlling your anger~! Never give up~!

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

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…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…
