Wow. It’s been nearly one year since my last blog entry. Cyanide has been scolding me for my lack of updates. I guess I was pretty disillusioned by work and too anhedonic to even feel like blogging.

Anyway, before I ramble on, Happy New Year 2012!! As always, I did not keep to my new year resolutions so I will just carry forward the same ones again…with a few modifications and additions.

1. Read the bible everyday.
2. Eat more vegetables and drink more water.
3. Worry less.
4. Exercise.
5. Blog more.

Ok. That’s it for this years resolutions. See you all same time next year. Ok, ok. I will try to blog more often. Hopefully this year will bring more inspiration to my writings especially since I have had a drastic change in my career path aim direction plans. I will eleborate more about it in another post if memory permits.

Adios for now. Until next time…

Lack of updates

It seems that since we started working, CN- and I have been blogging a lot less. Perhaps that applies especially to me, who hardly blogged the past 1 year. I guess it’s mainly due to being tired and overwork, therefore lacking any enthusiasm whatsoever to write anything witty or at least remotely interesting. After all, who wants to blog or read about work and stress all year round? Or maybe it’s just my brain cells undergoing apoptosis and becoming a little more dull each day. Sigh.

Anyway, time flies and it’s now the end of the year again. Time to at least write some crap to mark the end of yet another year. I’m finally on a short Christmas break, which was granted rather grudgingly by my workplace. Nevertheless, I am taking the opportunity to rest and hopefully recharge from being burnt out. It would also be a good time to start considering my next career path as I have decided that I need to go looking for new cheese. Can’t keep whining about people moving my cheese and expecting new ones to just drop from the sky.

Well, looks like this is going to be yet another boring post, beating around the bush about nothing in particular. But at least I can tell CN-, hey I blogged! Muahahaha.

Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! 🙂

Like and unlike

Since the boom of facebook (FB), many new words have surfaced. Apart from unfriend, another interesting FB term is unlike. I’m getting very confused with the new features of FB, when you seem to be able to like virtually everything from status updates, photos, comments, to links and even pages of random stuff.

Liking something is an easy thing to do. Simply press on the button like. Nevertheless, unliking something is quite the contrary. I am usually quite good at exercising self-control when it comes to adding unnecessary applications, joining fan pages etc. but somehow I was tempted to pressing like for some Disney crap thingy which required me to like them before being able to view the video. After viewing the video, I suddenly had the obsessive-compulsion to unlike it.

After a long search for the unlike button, I simply gave up and googled  How do you unlike something on facebook?” and there you go. Apparently I’m not the only one who didn’t know how to do so. Hah.

I envy not in any moods
The captive void of noble rage,
The linnet born within the cage,
That never knew the summer woods:

I envy not the beast that takes
His license in the field of time,
Unfetter’d by the sense of crime,
To whom a conscience never wakes;

Nor, what may count itself as blest,
The heart that never plighted troth
But stagnates in the weeds of sloth;
Nor any want-begotten rest.

I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

In Memoriam (XXVII)

by Lord Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892)

“Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.” ~ Oscar Wilde

I for one, am not a morning person. I have to reach work by 7.30-7.45 am in the morning, so as to check the machines before starting my day’s work. Anyway, when I arrive at the hospital, the last thing I feel like doing is smiling and saying hello to all those chirpy morning people. In fact, I think it’s by only about 10 am when I am able to consider myself fully awake.

I always look forward to sleeping in during the weekends, however that has not been the case for the past few months due to the numerous on-calls I’ve had during those weekends. Suddenly, sleeping in is such a rare luxury. After reading this Oscar Wilde quote, I can say that I  feel somewhat justified for waking up way past noon. Haha..

Was watching a movie with my sis when one of the characters mentioned the word “oxymoron”. Decided to check out what it really meant since I though it was a type of moron. Something like super moron, uber moron or ultra moron. Ok, that was lame. Hah.
