To the future

I managed to find a new job. Finally.

All the stress and frustration that I have been having for the past few months melted away with the job offer at hand.

Was it the job that I initially wanted?
No, not really.

But to be honest, looking at it now, it's not a bad offer.
In fact, this might actually be better for me than the job that I initially wanted. 

I do admit that it took me a while to figure out what I wanted career wise and also to fully accept that my university days are over.

I do sometimes wonder why I take so long to get used to things or transition into a new part of life.
But it's just how I function.
Of course, I'll do my best to try to get used to things faster.

But I must admit that when I just got out of University and when I got my first job, I was not prepared mentally.

I was still missing my University life and most of all, I didn't give myself a break to shift my mental state.
Most of all, I was confused and I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted in terms of my future. 

Although this one year felt like a buffer period, I'm glad that I did use it well.
I'm glad that I sat down and thought about the future that I wanted.

Maybe to some people, I did waste a year.
But to me, life isn't a race.
And so I sat down to figure out what I want in my own life and I'm glad I did.

It's like taking time to sit down, take out your map and try to refigure out your bearings and try to find out where it is you wanna go.

Some people don't need to do this.
But I do.
And I'm glad that I did.

I feel more prepared and ready.

And most of all, I feel like this is a fresh start and I'm excited.

So I look forward to this.

So this is to the future.

And may it be bright~!!

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 …
