The days bring forth hope
Hope for tomorrow, for love
What are your hopes, child?

My life has a pleasant pattern now where I work whenever there is work to be done, meet up with friends during my free time and just chillax the rest.

Its like still being on holiday because I haven’t found a full time job (I really am taking my own sweet time with this), but its good cause I still have income to support myself and all of my habits. I’ve decided that this is truly the best way to go around looking for a full time job. I don’t want to settle for something that I don’t really want to do (like corp-comms or sales, for some ulu company), but at the same time I simply cannot afford to do nothing till I find a job, my family isn’t rich. So this works out fine.

The flu bug (which started from Ah Chong) finally caught up with me last week and that had me in bed for a few days, flu bugs really suck the life out of you. Other than that, life’s been really sweet. (:

Love Haikus

Inspired by Tyler Knott, whose haikus are so darn sweet. I’ve decided to start writing my own.

When it’s late at night
hear my soft steady heartbeat
and let it calm you.

Btw, I totally have to sound out this awesome photographer, who takes some really pretty photos, like the one above (:

Hot mess

So, I’ve finally gotten off my ass after 2 months of slacking, and found myself a part-time job to occupy some time while I hunt for a full-time one and I’m actually really happy with it!

I’m working as an ad-hoc facilitator for Action Teams. Work doesn’t even feel like work. Its like going to the gym under the sun, really early in the morning. I know that doesn’t sound like much fun, and I thought that I would hate it, but its been really good for me.

Its fixed my body clock, I know that I’m working out every time I go to work because my body is begging for a massage and I don’t feel sleepy at work cause its so physical. The pay is very decent and I love working at the beach.

And I’ve realized somethings about myself, like the fact that I simply cannot work for a hugeass soulless corporation. I think that I will be really unhappy in an office like that, where everyone sticks to their own work and you only know your department.

The idea of it is so depressing. I have added a new requirement to my list of must haves for my full time job, it has to be in a small to medium sized company where people are warm and have soul. I know I’ve just cut down my preferred company list by like 1/2 but I think that I’ll be so much happier and that makes it a lot more worth it.

Completing 6 feet under has just made me depressed. I need a hug. 😦

All we can do is try to live a full life, before it is over. Try our best and hope that’s enough. I’m going to curl up into a ball and cry now, ttyl.

I’m so tired, but so, so happy. I’m truly grateful for all that I’ve been blessed with. 2009 brought with it a whole lot of trials and tribulations for my family, if I should say so myself. Heart attacks, depression, stomach ulcers… whole lot of bad things. But I think it’s really made me realize the need to cherish those I love.

So cheers guys, Happy New Year.
Here’s to good health, joy and love.
