Finally, It's Happened To Me!

Well well well, my lappie has crashed. Along with ALL my data, my pictures, my exam papers, my downloaded music, legal and otherwise. Aaaaarrgh!!! I do hope my Techie Yoda can salvage my darling lappie without my data being lost. Right now just a little apprehensive, ya know?

Very Proud, I Am

His shoulders were hunched and a look of sheer desperation and full fledged humiliation was splashed across his face. He did not have the dignity to look at us in the eye. His words were few and far in between. But that was then, feels like a lifetime ago. NOW, he is part of the elite 3Guards. This 18 year old has been through a lot. A LOT. While I hate what some people have done to him, I very resentfully have to, on hindsight, perhaps thank them for what they did to him. The ordeal that he has gone through, I pray to God no other persons have to experience. He managed to pull himself up and I hope, MBB and I had a teensy weensy bit part in that. He has definitely become a mature young adult who has his whole life in front of him. I hope he stays strong. If his strength of character and maturity is anything to go by, I am sure he will do just fine. I also hope that he knows that MBB and I will be there behind him. All the way, my dear.

Perhaps, this is God's way of letting me have a taste of what parents go through when their precious sons have to undergo NS. You think?

From A Distance

Yesterday saw me up and in school at 9am. A rarity in itself. But I got to meet Datin together with AhGek, we had breakfast. Nice. Lama dah tak buat macam tu.... Why was I in school yesterday? My department had a PSLE oral and parenting styles workshop. All in all it went quite ok, though some people will probably have much negative things to say. Rumah dah siap, pahat masih berbunyi....... To be expected lah.... I'd be surprised if it didn't....

The parenting bit of the workshop gave me a ta pau back that I think I should pay some attention to. It said, "Surround yourself with positive energies, if there are people who when they come to you are always whining and always full of complaints, if these people drag you down and drain you of your energy, DISTANCE YOURSELF."

Wise words. Zak, it's time, no?

This Crazy Little Thing Called Stress

Have you ever felt your chest so tight that you need to yell out LOUD to get some relief? Have you ever felt so frustrated that you just wanna punch the living daylights out of some people to regain your sanity? Have you ever wanted to bitch slap some people back to oblivion just to get then out of your hair? Have you ever wanted to literally kill some people because they just think that they are so damned bloody clever, that God-Help-Them they are the ONLY ones in this place who's working, that they are the ONLY ones who knows how to work? Have you ever just gotten the shit shocked out of you when some people can say one thing and then in the very same breath say a COMPLETELY different thing? Have you ever felt so desperate because you cannot just tell these people off that all you can do is cry very very angry tears?

If the answer to ALL these questions is YES, then you tell me lah, is it stress?
