This is life

well, things have been hectic. The classes are longer and more challenging. And the exercises given feel like a mental Olympic challenge. Each day, after class feels mentally taxing.

So no. Things aren't easy. It's hard and hectic. And I do feel overwhelmed.

But at the same time, there is a little pleasure that comes with it. I have always loved being busy and productive. It makes me rather happy. So as hard and hectic as things are, I am also enjoying myself.

I thought A-levels was tough. And wow, degree is much harder. It is non-stop work.

Well, I am trying to balance everything out as I want to play and study at the same time. That's my goal. And it's not gonna be easy but I am going to try and do my best.

I miss my buddies in A-levels very much though. Here, I am not quite close to anyone. Instead, I am on good terms with everyone and I hang out with whoever happens to sit with that day. I am cool with everyone. But I miss the deep connection kind of friendship.
I am not complaining though. Everyone here is pretty cool.

Anyhow, right now, life is pretty interesting. So yea. I am good.

I had a constant group dy. An Indian gal and Chinese girl. We're not too close but we're good. We help each other to reserved place and I'm happen that we reach a compromise to sit as front as possible. That's allow me to have group members to form group. I do miss the strong bonding friendship, but i can understand and enjoy what I'm having now.

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…

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…

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…
