My course and my career.

Anyway, there was a talk on Monday about careers. The overall point of that talk was that we needed to figure out what we wanted to do in respect to our careers and once we do that, we need to equip ourselves with the right skills and tools.

So the question is right now is, what do we want to do in respect to our careers?

Honestly, I am quite uncertain what I want to do for my career.

I just know that I want to be in top management. Or even better, a CEO.

But of course, how do I get there?

I know that I am willing to work my ass off to achieve what I want to achieve.
So I know I am fine.

I know some people might think that I am taking a very idealistic optimistic approach but I like this approach so I will use this one.
What if things don't go as I want them? It's okay. I am winging this as I go so I am totally cool with the results.

But the thing is, I have to think and decide on what sort of career I want. To make it more detailed so that I get an advantage.
Problem is, I don't really know.

The reason why I chose Economics is because it's more general. Is that a bad thing? No, it means that I cannot choose directly because I want to learn it all. Yes, I am a little greedy that way.

I love Economics. I love Finance. I love it all.
I can't choose.
Not right now anyway.

I know I am greedy in that sense. I have always been a person who wants it all.
I know that I can't get all most of the times.
But I will try.
I will only choose when I know that I definitely can't have it all and I have no choice but to choose.

Anyway, I just want to put it out there that Economics course is not a stupid course or an easy one either (not the one I'm taking anyway).
Yes, it may be general.
But Economics is like philosophy.
It's the mother of the modern monetary world. 
So it may seem general but you get a better understanding of the whole picture and how the entire system works.

I am just a little sick and tired of people saying that Economics is stupid or useless or too general or easy.
Because it's not.

And personally, I love Economics. I did not take it because I just wanted a degree or because it was "easy".

So yea.

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 …
