Getting lost in life
Saturday. 2.25.06 6:51pm
My thoughts these days are to return to uni to study off my final year full time. I have given much thought into it as I think it is the best thing for me to do. I have really felt the pressures last year of studying and working full time and have often found myself hating everyone, pulling my hair out or crying my eyes out! I wonder if other people ever feel the same way...or am I overreacting and just whining too much???

I just wanna finish my degree and then worry about working esp since it is my last yr...I cant wait to graduate it would mean so much to me. :) It might mean going back to living like a student and scunging and every lil dollar to keep myself a float financially...but there must be sacrifices for the ultimate goal! Which is probably one measily piece of paper. At least I will finish that chapter of my life. I have this thing - when I have made my mind up about something I will do anything at all costs to achieve it. Is it ambitious? Over confident? Funny I have the drive to accomplish what I want but often get bored of the reward that I receive. Example...getting a job, bored of it (challenge is lost).

Whilst others are comfortable with their situation and live it simply and happily. I can live simple but that is the other side to me. I have too many sides...and sometimes wonder whether I have found my true identity as yet. I do still look in the mirror every day and wonder where I have gone...who am I now...and am I living my dreams or someone else's. It all too much!! So basically finishing one thing at a time will help me find myself...

Valentine's day -belated update
Monday. 2.20.06 6:43pm
Sorry I have not been updating this place in a while. I have just been so lazy to go on the net and have been out of the house almost everyday! If I had the net at work I would probably be updating the site every hour. hehehe. I can't even update my written journal which I usually write in at night, it is every 3 or 4 days that it gets an entry,. hehe.

Man it was so hot today...37 degrees! I'm so glad I was in the office, but also not too happy. hehe. I went to eat at a Lebanese restaurant just below my office cuz it was my supervisor's bday. The food was so nice! There was a mixture of egyptian food too...I wonder why I have never been there before! But then I think I was just so silly and felt a bit awkward eating at a restaurant that majority of customers were middle eastern. I hate myself when I feel that way...cuz in a way I am prejudice towards others by being "scared" of entering a foreign restaurant. I loved the food and I will definitely go back again! :) But I think since working at the immigration dept it has opened my eyes to mixing with other cultures and admiring the beauty in all of them :)

Anyways I should have left an update of Vday, but nothing much was going on...My boyfriend and I went to eat at Sizzlers. The reason is cuz last yr he didnt have enough food to eat and we paid heaps for it. So this time I stuff his tummy full of food and love. hehe. It was nice...bumped into an old highschool friend and his girl. It was funny, cuz I used to have a crush on this guy but now I look back and think "huh? What was I thinking???" Funny when you have those kinda moments... The plan was to go to beach but instead I went back to his house and help his older bro with a job application! Sorry baby...that we didnt spend the time together..Plus his older bro was upset and needed us to lend our ears.. I didnt mind...but I hate that side of Vday which is so overrated and makes people so sensitive to generous acts! I got really worked up because people dont deserve to be treated that way esp. on Vday...

I gave my boo lots of hugs and kisses and I got him the new ARAMIS fragrance 'ALWAYS' and also made him a hand made card and wrote him a poem. I became the 'romantic' on vday. I have only become the romantic recently...because I can only do these things for my boy...no one else. :)

starting to get boring
Saturday. 2.11.06 12.56 pm
Every day when I wake up in the morning to go to work...and feel so demotivated to go. It is really starting to take it's toll and work is getting boring. I guess it's cuz I have been stuck in the same job for a year now and Finance was never my 'thing'! If I was to work in a job that I really had an interest in...I think I could do it for life. But something like Finance is well...interesting from the start but the excitement is starting to wear off. Cuz there is no challenge left in the job...

I cant wait to move out of that section and into learning something new, which will prob be in March or April. I cant believe on Friday I took a sickie!! I did have a sore tummy but not extremely painful enough to keep me away for work. Still I was just lazy and did not want to go to work hahaha...

I think it is the generation I was born into 'Gen Y' , employers these days have to keep the work place challenging and new all the time! I mean the old workforce is slowly retiring and young people are entering...they have to make it exciting to retain the young ones like you and myself!! :) I think the public service does not have the new plans in place to capture the attention of young people but private do...cuz they are the ones that pay alla big monies :p

Someone wise said to me ' Don't get stuck in the public service too long, work there for 2 years and milk them for all their training and experience then GET OUT'!!! I think it is almost time to leave if I do not get transferred soon... damn when did I get so demanding??? haaha.

On the train called 'hitch'
Thursday. 2.2.06 9:07pm
There must come a time in someone's life when they realise that everyone is getting married or engaged or some kinda life committment...that really opens their eyes to the journey of life. Some people will hop on that train and others will miss it. It will either be a choice or you chose to miss the train...Cuz not everyone wants the same thing.

2 of my friends have got engaged and going to get married very soon!! It scares me cuz it means it is another chapter of our lives and it means we won'tbe hanging out with 'just the girls' anymore...but with the hubbies and the babies... :p I dont think I am close to being ready for that chapter... It could be cuz these girls are graduating and that too is another step in life. Amazing cuz they are only 21 & 22. One is my dear friend Heidi, known her since I was 13, she and he man have been together for 7 years! Then there is my ex-homestay Yuko, who I've been in contact with since I was 15...she is getting married in Japan.

So amazing...and exciting but. hehehe. It is not the idea of 'marriage' that scares me...but having babies. It could really be a phobia for me..hahaha. Even though my friends say it is normal to have fears like that. I hope it is normal..cuz me not too keen on lil tikes. I still feel like a baby myself to my mummy and daddy. How immature does that sound? lol! But it is fun to shop for the wedding presents..but hard at the same time.

Good news for the new year!
Saturday. 1.28.06 4:16pm
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR EVE EVERYONE!! I feel so much more relieved that the new year is here...even more so than on Jan 1st. I think the Chinese New Year is more significant to me. It really signifies a new start, new beginnings, new opportunities and the closure of sad moments of 2005. Although sometimes you can never close what has touched your heart in 2005...in that case you learn a lesson of life.

By surviving the last yr and making it through as a human, I feel I can take on anything... learn from my falls and make myself a better person. :) It is the year of the dog...means2 more years and it'll be the year of the rat..hehe my year. Man that is so scary!

Also good news was spread on Fri, my friend Heidi got engaged. :) I think this one will be the first wedding...I just know it. Other friends have been engaged but sadly broke off with their partners. It is kinda dangerous to say you are engaged and not plan to get married after...cuz it kinda leaves time to break up. :( Sad huh?? I was soo excited for her, she has been with her bf for almost 7 years now and they met when they were 15! It's been some time,but I think they were waiting for Heidi to graduate and now that she has...ooo it is just so cool!

It's always nice to start the new year with well wishes, good news, and happiness and love everywhere :) Wishing everyone a happy chinese new year, fillled with good luck, joy and prosperity!!
