Internship week 1.

One week of internship has passed.
And how was it?

I have always heard people say to me, Carmen oh Carmen, what do you know? Working life is hard. Harder than you think.

Maybe I can't say much yet because it has only been my first week.

But is working hard? Is it as unbearable as some people make it out to be?
I am in a small accounting firm.
Most people say that being an accountant is the most boring thing ever.

Well, what do I say to this?

I say that it's bullshit.

Work is hard because there are things that you actually have to do and it actually requires effort.
But mostly, it's because I miss having my time to myself. And now, my time belongs to the firm and I can't do what I like such as napping or going online.

But at the same time, I feel productive. Like I am actually doing something important that helps out.
I am only an intern so I don't really get to do the big important stuff. I am just given simple tasks that most people don't want to do because it's tedious and tiring.
Currently, I am just proof reading tax claims documents.

However, despite doing the simple tasks such as this, I don't feel bored or anything. To me, everything is a learning experience. I find it exciting to see how the accounting I learnt in my textbook being applied in real life. I hear phone calls from my colleagues to their clients and they speak the things that I have read in my textbooks and I found that really really cool.

To be honest, I really wished that I was an intern in a big huge accounting firm. But then again, it's okay. Because internship is about learning and as long as I am learning, it's all good. 

Working isn't hard to me for now. It's interesting. A new phase in my life that will be coming soon.
So now, I realized that I have to probably think hard about what I want from my career and how to achieve that.
I'd probably would have to schedule a meeting with my lecturer one day and talk to him.

So yea. 

So far, so good.

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 …
