Rant October 18, 2012

Filed under: frustration,life,Personal — eujzin @ 9:22 pm

I am somewhat a stubborn person. stubborn and illogical. I guess a lot of us are like that. We may know what we ought to do, and even know the consequences of doing (or not doing) something that we ought.

Even more so when you are about/or will be doing something that is expected of u but someone reminds you to do so (in a short, well, imo, short span of time). My brain will translate it from a perhaps intended “gentle” reminder, to a “nag”

I guess it feels as if the person doesn’t trust you. ESP when that person is someone who’s close to you. For that moment, you feel as if that person is not close to you just becoz the trust seemed to be gone for that moment.

Feeling pretty defeated. Just when things are going well…BAM! life hits u. again.

I hate myself for ranting. Why can’t I just suck it up and “Be a Man”

coz I proli implode…

I dun like to keep score. I like to think that I do good things without expecting return. If I expect something, I think it shouldn’t be called a GOOD thing.

I also hate to justify myself esp to closed ones. Should my love ones TRUST me enuff??

SO while I am relishing the fact that I have more time (so I can do something nice), I get a …

I am actually planning for something nice, this weekend and for the near future. only to be marred by, I guess, I can blame Satan for his efforts to dampen my spirits and probably my sleep as well. Me, PLANNING, AHEAD.

thought it’s a good thing. unfortunately, it turned out to be not.

it’s tiring. and discouraging. I can only push myself to encourage myself in the Lord. Coz man disappoints. But God NEVER.

In God we Trust. Indeed.

 

Wat a day March 11, 2011

Filed under: frustration,life — eujzin @ 1:45 pm

I decided to use back a free WordPress blog than a self-hosted becoz it’s simply much easier to use and less hassle.
Plus I could easily use the WordPress app for android to post.

I am using it now also becoz wat I wanna describe exceeds the word limit for Facebook

Till now ( it’s lunchtime) it’s been an eventful day.

The car felt ‘violated’ coz it was not the way i left it last night. Sure it was at the same parking spot but some things INSIDE the car werewolf not where i left them. My sunnies moved. A/C was left on ( I usually switch it off). I was totally weird out

Then I was caught in a jam. And the school decided to have breakfast which delayed my talk further. By the time the kids were done, It was 1030. 30 mins delay! Left 30 mins to cover the talk! I thot, OK, I can do this but I din expect so many students ask so many questions! And there were some kids that were harder to handle.by the time I was done, I was 15 mins over and exhausted.  It didn’t help that I my throat hurt.

After 2 talks, I had abt 1 and half hrs before the next talk so I it wasn’t logical to go back office. So I quickly tried to find some lunch kakis.  Unfortunately it was either too late, not free or no reply. So I decided to eat @ HPB. BUT luck would have it tt cafe is not fully operational. So OK, nvm there’s always 7-11…BUT of all days…today NO FOOD!!???

What gives?? So decided to go out and eat. (SGH’s too crowded and the next nearest cafe sells rice soaked in chilli oil IMO)
But I couldn’t decide where to eat w/o incurring ERP and parking charges so pondered for ten mins. Finally when I decided,  I drove out of carpark only to get stucked at the gantry coz not enuff $$ in cashcard!? SUAY OR WAT

Haiz…thankfully I managed to find a nice place w free parking nearby. Thank God for Hotel Re!!

New year, new rants?

I dun want!!!

but how?? it’s REALLY REALLY hard.

Early morning dun say anything negative or NAG CAN DIE ISSSIT?????!!!!!!!

I was talking to Nat ytd and he mentioned he and his boss respected each other’s time for the first hr when they stepped into the office. Why can’t people get this? I mean, fine, it’s okay if there’s something urgent and u approach the person to ask but almost EVERY morning??? it’s no wonder pple get high stress->hypertension->stroke/cardiac arrests

and nowdays itz SOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo blooody baaaaaaaaaaad that almost everything sounds like a bloody NAG. it’s like HELLO, do u not trust your own son/bf/long time employee/ol or best fren/watever the close  relation

I think i shld just ‘elope’ to another country and not come back. no man’s an island? I’m beginning to suspect the phrase is invented by people who need to nag

ok, new year, new beginnings. I want things to improve.

God grant me the COURAGE to CHANGE the things i can. the SERENITY to ACCEPT the things I can’t. and the WISDOM to know the difference

 

Dunno wat to say December 27, 2010

Just had a good weekend, christmas, and staycation despite some hiccups.

Back at home, today, workday but on leave. The feeling was supposed to be wonderful.

This same feeling, same as when i have my staycation. Serenity, tranquility, peace. And quietness.

No incessant reminders of work, of stress in general.

Today WAS supposed to be all that. no one’s supposed to be home. or if they were, this is supposed to be HOME. A place of refuge, a place for sanctuary. AWAY from stress, or the reminders of stress.

Why do parents or people in general like to irritate others with their incessant complaints and nagging. I am fine with CONSTRUCTIVE critism. but it’s another thing altogether when you do not trust someone. and expect the WORSE of every person.

Why can’t we be more tolerant and thoughtful for each other.that way, life will be much much MUCH better with all that lesser stress and duress.

I miss that feeling. I wish I was back…in Wanderlust…

 

Damn if I do, Damn if I don’ August 2, 2010

I can’t believe that despite being a working adult, I thought I would and should be old enough to be able to decide how I want to live my life. It’s not as if I was a druggie or a alcoholic. So what’s wrong with me working late and staying out to chill? Firstly, it’s not as if I could chill at home. Believe you me, I wish I could. NOT with my parents. My sis can and will attest to that. How CAN one chill with all that nagging and constant talking. I am not saying that one shouldn’t communicate with your parents, I am saying that there is a time and place to do certain things. certainly not nag and start the incessant grumbling the MOMENT you step into the house. Could I at LEAST put down my bag, and wash up first? no???

When I make the effort to come home EARLY, I also get nagged. I come home later (to avoid the said nagging…), I OSO bloody KENA nagged. SO HOW??

My goodness…this is not the FIRST time I am whining abt this. I rather not have to whine in the first place. And dun go telling me “Why dun u tell your parents nicely blah blah yada yada”

I DID!!!

SIAN…as if work wasn’t bad enuff…and isn’t home supposed to be a SANCTUARY?? a REFUGE??? a place of REST?????!!!

 

iLuv iPhone? March 16, 2010

Filed under: frustration,review — eujzin @ 7:03 pm

Back in 2007, when iPhone wasn’t as widespread (u see iPhones everywhere! and yet most use it to play games??!!) like Ikea is in Singapore homes, it used to elicit cool remarks and wolf whistles like it was the coolest gadget on earth. But forward to 2010, it ain’t so bells and whistles no more. Here’s why…

  • No flash (both for camera and for web surfing)
  • Poor camera performance
  • Poor phone call quality
  • No multitasking
  • It’s thick
  • You can’t easily transfer data files, music, videos, any files like a plug n play hard disk (despite having 32Gb)
  • You cannot sync data over wifi or bluetooth (Palm was able to do that like wayyy back in 2005!)
  • The bluetooth function sucks (limited bluetooth)
  • no SDHC/microSDHC expansion slot to add to it
  • No second camera for video calling
  • iTunes tie: media content locked to specific computer, no simple drag & drop way to add files
  • Limited codec support excludes likes of Ogg Vorbis audio and – crucially – AVI video so lengthy format conversion required with third party software
  • Non-removeable battery so it can’t be swapped out on long journeys & requires expensive procedure to replace at an Apple store should it degrade outside the warranty

The only good thing I like about iPhone is the power of the apps…but by the virtue of being popular, there’s lots of support for the iPhone hence the numerous amount of apps available.

I’ve got an iPod Touch which is awesome except for the reasons stated above. It’s so so dumb having data files and a hard disk and not being able to use it!!

Given some time, i believe there will be more apps for the WebOS, Android, and the Blackberry to level the playing field.
