Home Run

Amongst the insanity of end of semester exams, I have come to realise that I am older but wiser and happier than my 18 year old self.

I have come to appreciate that things come and go and what we can do is treat it organically and do not control it for it is futile.

Growing pains. What life is about and beyond.

Namaste.

Growing Pains

In the slow realisation, I have come to recognise that I am older but wiser and happier than my 18 year old self.

I have come to appreciate that things come and go and what we can do is treat it organically and do not control it for it is futile.

Growing pains. What life is about and beyond.

Love From SH

Hello readers! I have landed on Australian soil from a whirlwind tour to Shanghai’s World Expo 2010.

Wow, has Shanghai changed – and not changed – since my visit in 2006.

Changed; new skyscrapers and more buildings/ refurbishment to attract the good ole western folk

Not changed; the people and their manners… Pushing and queue-cutting never seem to be refurbished as quickly as their skyscrapers.

Nonetheless, I love Shanghai!

Pick One, Only (cont)

Fine, it did not work – running a startup and completing and MBA – it failed miserably.

I got my mid-semester exam back and I had failed. Never had I got a mark back that was soooo terrible- and I had studied a lot.

No fear, I did not intend on doing well in Finance nor Economics, as Marketing and Management are my strong suits.

Anyhow. Back to MBA and my startup.

What do these account for? What do they lead to?

A career.

I want a career desperately, but I do not know where to begin. In fact, I have already begun, but I want things to move faster – this my tarot card reader cannot help me with.

It comes down to goal-setting….

Happy Birthday to Me!

Okay, I am 25 today. What did I do?

Spent the day at retail, followed by group work which just finished. Now, I am seated at home blogging. I know, I know, this is extremely sad.

Does this person have friends? Yes, I do, and I have already celebrated prior and will afterwards, but this day, I am spending in solitude, isolation, peace.

Honestly, I do not want to ‘celebrate’ turning another year older. What’s the point? There’s actually nothing to be joyful about. Yes- I have survived another year and am still alive – then?

I feel a quarter-life crisis dawning upon me. Shit!

Why the hell am I feeling this way….? Okay, probably as a friend has pointed out that it is scary to turn 25 when you are penniless and do not have a career. Needless to say, my family is not here.

Fuck.

That is starting to bite. That’s me!

Okay. Things are not that ‘okay’ now.

Calm down Bumble Pig. Read ‘Eat Pray Love’. Haha…

Gonna take a shower and hit the pillows before the cold gets me.

Quarter Life Crisis

Make a wish.

It’s my birthday in an hour. I will be 25.

Make a wish and blow the candles. I don’t have a wish. Does world peace count?

Sigh. 25. This is when I have to tick the 24-30 age group check box. Wonderful.

I am not looking forward to it. The only upside I can think of right now is that the car insurance gap is significantly smaller.

25, ready or not.
