In a way, my holiday is ending.

Well, it's not because my school is starting. But it's because I have internship and internship is working.

During our school period, a few of my classmates started planning for their three months break. A few of them were talking about internships and honestly, it wasn't a bad idea. 
There were also other things that was being thrown around such as travelling and summer schools. All of which aren't bad at all.

I was really torn between summer schools and internships. Sadly, summer schools was way too expensive so instantly, I had to choose internships.

I thought an internship would look good on my resume. 

I applied to big firms and I got rejected by a few of them while some of my classmates got accepted. It kinda sucks getting rejected but I suppose that is apart of life. 

I should be used to rejections by now but it still hurts.

But luckily for me, my dad knows people who owns small accounting firms so I ended up getting an internship anyway.

Funny thing is, now that my internship comes closer, I feel quite reluctant. I don't really want to work. 
I still want to enjoy my summer. I want the wind in my hair and a day out in the sun. I just wanna have fun. Even if it means just staying in my house and doing nothing. 

But since I have to do this internship, I would do it.

But I made up my mind that next year, my last summer break, I am definitely gonna enjoy all three months of it to the last drop.

I enjoyed my summer break in my first year even if I didn't really go anywhere. I really used that time to reenergize. I met up with friends and catch up. I ate good food. I slept well. I indulged in books and anime. I even wrote. I had loads of fun.
Eventhough I know that those activities won't be nice on my resume but the point is, I thoroughly enjoyed myself in that three months.

But funnily enough, last year, I asked myself if I should be productive in my next summer break. Well, here I am, going to be productive. And I am somewhat wishing that I don't have to. hahaha.

Oh well.

But I will do my best in my internship and just try to have fun.

I did say that this will be an awesome summer and I intend to make this come true.

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…
