Do not diss my course.


So I study Economics and Management.
Well, it's kind of in the business and finance area. 

I am a little sick and tired of people's impression of this course.
So be prepared for a rant.
Atleast I warned you.
Ps, I will be posting some extra blog posts to cover up for the blog posts I miss during my exam hiatus. So yea.

Here's what people think of my course and how I am sick of it.

1. People think that our parents forced us into this course.
Well, maybe, for some people, their parents forced them.
Not me though.
I picked this course.
I am passionate about this course.
I love Economics.
And I realized that I only love it more ever since the exams ended.

Maybe, I don't get to show off my love for economics because unlike other courses, there is no chance to.
But it doesn't mean, I don't love Economics because I do. 
I sincerely do.

2. People think that this course is evil because all that matters is money and it leads you to the evil corporate world. You will become evil or so they say.
Look, money is not root of evil.
It's just a tool we use to get the things we want.
The more money we have, the better.
And what's wrong with wanting more?
What's wrong with wanting to learn about money itself and it's system?
It's interesting to me.

I like the corporate world.
I like the symphony of business deals, flows of money going in and out and the dance of the financial world.
I like that the financial world never sleeps and how it will keep me busy.
Most of all, I love the idea of having an office with a view of the city skyline and the fact that I will have a really thick wallet. 

3. People thinks that people who take this course have no creativity because it's all about the money.
PLEASE.
JUST NO.
Do you know why financial crisis happens?
Or why huge companies go bust?
Or why taxes can be avoided?
It's called creative accounting.
Exactly. 
Creative.
So just no.

And I am a writer.
I wouldn't say I have loads of creativity.
But I have enough.

4. People thinks this course is easy.
This one pisses me off the most.
My course is not easy.
Try differentiating and integrating without a fucking calculator.
Try reading five textbooks for one subject.
Try remembering theories and how to prove them mathematically all at the same time.
Don't forget you must learn applying them too.

It's not easy.
Because if it was easy, I wouldn't have broken down a few times in tears, wanting to commit suicide.
And no, I am not kidding.
Right before my real exams, I had thoughts of commiting suicide. It seems like a good idea at the time. But thankfully, the thought of pain and probably not dying from the suicide attempt stopped me.

So no. 
This is not easy.
It's hard.
Harder than I thought it would be.
Ask my classmates, they'll tell you.

I guess, I am just sick of people talking shit about my course.

I am not saying that my course is better than anyone else's. 
No, it's not.
It's just a course like any other course.
But I just don't want people to mock it and disrespect it.

Because remember, you also live in a financial world as long as you use money.

Just try to respect my course and I will certainly respect yours.

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…

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 …
