Sometimes things happen. Things happen even when we don't intend them to happen. Maybe at the beginning we had good intentions, or intentions we thought were harmless, but before we knew it, things got out of our control… – Anonymous
If we could look into the hearts of others and understand the hardship that each one of us faces daily, I think that we would treat each other with more gentleness, patience, tolerance and care. – Anonymous
Almost everyone learns the hard way about love. It's easy to think that there's something better out there somewhere but make no mistake many are those that learns the hard way about love. – Anonymous
People are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them. – Veronica Roth
Another year has passed and it's the new year now. Infact, the first month about to end. Despite the time I had, now only I'm making the entry for new year. Need to learn to use time wisely first. Life haven't change since the last year. Thinking how much different I have expected it would have been, it's not good for still remaining the same. Anyway, let's put some hope until November, in which I will be turning 25 years old.
I haven't been updating this blog much. How great was the vision I had about having blog before I actually started it. I'm paying for this blog, doesn't feel good to leave it like this. Every time I go online, nothing else than scrolling Facebook. Anyway these days, I'm less on Facebook and being on Twitter instead.
One of the Facebook page that I have liked is Mark Brown, owned by Mark Brown himself posting inspirational stuff based on Christianity teachings. Recently, he posted…
Karl Pillemer of Cornell University interviewed nearly 1500 people age 70 to 100+ for his book "30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans." He asked them what life lessons they'd pass on.
The single standout piece of advice these amazing people gave was:
Do not stay in a job you dislike.
You should ask yourself this: Do I wake up in the morning looking forward to work? If you don't, then maybe it is time to search for what you really want to do.
First of all, I can't deny the advise applies to me as well, but it's not easy to get job. Most people carry on with the job they don't like because they have to, they could not pick or choose the ones they like. Lucky are those that landed on their dream job or job that they love.
Confucius have said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." That's so lovely, but how about getting it? Not as easy as saying it. I definitely would have asked that to Confucius if had the chance. Haha.
Since the day I started working, I always wanted to do something else but up until today, I haven't figure it out yet. Sometimes you want something out of this life but you just don't know what it is. All you feel is, this isn't all that you need to remain with.
I'm not being materialistic, I'm talking about having satisfaction, much like how Steve Jobs put it with "Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me."
It's May 1st today, known as the Labor Day. Hope all employers appreciate their employees, as Plato said it, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." For employees, when you wake to go work, remember some don't have one to wake up for. That applies to students too. :)

Do you ever wish you had a second chance to meet someone again for the first time? … I do. Always. :)
Life's full of choices and sometimes, with all the voices in my head, it's really hard to make one. Sometimes, we have only one choice that which we have to take. Anyway, the thing is, after we made the choice, it turns around and make us…
Dreams are real while they last.
Can we say more of life?
