Fear


Lately, my fear has been loud again.

I'm still on my job hunt.

and my fear just keeps yelling at me

what if you don't find a job
what if no one wants you

And it's scary.

I don't come from a family where money is ever flowing

The thought that I would be incomeless is scary to me suddenly.

Because it means, whatever it is I planned for my financial goals come to a stop now.

I'm not sure if the job industry is hard or if I'm looking at the wrong jobs.

But yes, I'm scared.

I told myself to stop whining and fearing.
I told myself to not speak negatively.

And although I say nothing to people.
This is still my general feeling.

I'm beginning to feel tired and scared.

But then again, I remember one thing about myself.
I have alot of fears.
I have always been a fearful child.

And although I'm absolutely afraid right now, I keep telling myself that I won't settle.
No.
I won't.

I will still do my best.

After all, I don't need a million jobs. Just one.

Question is, I need to find that one.

So yea.

All the best to me.

Hi Carmen,

I just want you to know that you have to eliminate fear to let the good vibes in. I won't say I am a strong believer in the law of attraction but somehow it does work (happened a few times for me).

Sometimes eliminating the negative vibes does not only mean your feelings but also the physical things around you. Maybe you've got a negative friend or maybe your room is messy, don't talk so much with that person or clean up your room.

What I'm saying that make your surrounding as positive as you can so that you will be able to attract the good vibes. And of course, think of the getting the job and work towards it. Sending in resumes is the first step and that's good. Maybe you could drop them an email after a week and ask if they've received your application? You gotta be proactive for the law of attraction to actually work hahaha it doesn't function like a magnet where it attracts without effort.

I hope I'm not sounding like a grandma but yea I really want to see you have the best and I am so happy you found someone who is not only your boyfriend but a best friend as well. He seems to emanate positivity so go get some + vibes by listening more to him, managing your anger, and so on.

I sincerely wish the best for you Carmen. And will keep updated about you on Twitter and your blog!

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…

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…
