Reflection after watching 'Tsunami"

We always do not believe in things that are out of norms. We only believe them when things happened. Wouldn't it be too late already if we believed them when damages occur? Weird things happen. Open up our minds. Everything is possible.

As empty as a shell

I am just like a shell, empty inside.
I fill the emptiness with material satisfaction.
Food, my desired gadgets and luxurious feelings.
Would that be sufficient to fill my emptiness?
I doubt.

3 options

I was having a reflective mind just now. And, the following options in live came across my mind.

1. Looking forward and never look backward. When you choose this, you will keep on developing, in both aspects of good and bad. Since you did not stop and look backward, you wouldn't know whether you are developing positively or negatively. This is why history is very important. =)

2. Stop once in a while and look back what has actually happened. Well, this mode would give you a slower development. Since you always being reflective on what you have done, you might need a longer period of time to withdraw yourself from the past and move forward. But, this mode is always a good one for me. Through my own experience, I always spend a long time to reflect on what I have been going through. And, I can't move on as long as I am reflecting. Well, I can actually, but, it would just be my physical entity that is moving on, whereas my mind is still get hooked in the past.

3. Trapped in the past. This option is a bit similar to the second option. When somebody is reflecting too long before moving on, he might have the tendency to be trapped in the past. Those who have chosen this will never move on. They will keep on grumbling and complaining why they have been treated in such a way. These people will never succeed in their lives.

So, which one would you choose?

I can't stand it anymore

I can't stand it anymore.
He laughs in front of his laptop all by himself.
He screams suddenly in front of his laptop.
He smiles blankly looking at the chemistry book.
He giggles and speaks to himself in the bath room.
He has all the characteristics of a unhygienic person.
He has the tidiest arrangements of his belongings.
I can't bear it anymore.
But what can I do?
He is too old to be given advice.
I can't stand it anymore.

Have you ever?

Have you ever felt like a zombie?
Where you do not know what you want exactly.
Where you will grab anything when you are walking in a hypermarket and pay it at the counter.
Where you eat but do not know what is the taste of the food like.
Where you have no expression when you are watching something funny.
Where you are merely faking yourself in front of your friends.
Where you just nod your head when your friends are talking to you.
Have you?

The importance of the first step

When I was walking back from the stadium just now, I realized that I was stepping on the tiles that have similar pattern. If I wanted to step on the tiles that are of different patterns, I needed to make my widen my pace or make it narrower. Hence, there are two things that come into my mind.
The first thing is that we must be very careful in making our first step. We must make sure that our initiation is a correct one. Once that is determined, our route would be easy. On the other hand, if we had made a wrong choice at the beginning, it would be difficult for us to get back on track, though it's possible.
The second thing is that we must be alert with our progress. When I was walking just now, I got distracted with the tiles of different patterns. Therefore, I stepped on the different tiles. Analogically, when we are doing something, we will get distracted sometimes. Hence, we must be aware of our own pace and concentrate on what we are doing. As a result, we will get a fruitful ending or outcome.


It's been a while since I last updated my blog. It would be good if I could update it everyday. Well, I will try to.
What is my topic for today? Let's talk about expectations. You know what, I have this kind of good and obedient image in my family. I am perceived as good and obedient by my family members, be it close ones or the extended ones. Since I have this kind of image, there are lots of things that I should not be doing. People will start questioning me if I didn't get a good result in a examination. People will start saying "What is wrong with you?" if I got my ear pierced.
Having this kind of 'good-boy' image has its pros and cons. Let's talk about the pros first. First of all, you will get people to love you and care about you. You will be like a treasure at home instead of a burden. People will give you food and money frequently. Then, people will feel proud of you. They will complement you in the public. And, of course, you yourself will feel good about it. And this will boost up your self-confidence, self-efficacy and all the self's.
On the other hand, when you are a good fellow, you should not even think of doing certain things which go against the norms. Of course, we should not be doing such things. But, you know, as a teenager and a young adult, there are many distractions out there. And teenagers and young adults are curious and have been always wanting to try new things. However, you should not be doing things that are perceived bad because you would like to maintain the good image of yours.
So, this is one of the major sacrifices that you have to make.
Alright, that is it for today. Let's continue in the following entry. Thanks for reading.
