On this rainy Friday morning, hk sent me this sms:

 

Good morn! “The important thing is to burn with passion to do what is right, and to strive our hardest wholeheartedly. If we do so, there is no barrier we cannot break through, no struggle we cannot win.” Have a great day ahead! =)

 

Thanks for always being so encouraging and for warming my heart on this gloomy morning. And, you’re never a spare friend!

怪胎

人是那么奇怪的动物,总是不会因为自己拥有什么而满足,总是看到别人拥有什么而羡慕。其实自己很清楚,每个人都有自己该走的路、适合做的事。有时候自己已经决定了什么,却又因为某些什么而怀疑自己。

 

yz和cx离开早报,想起自己阔别当记者的日子已经一年。三年的记者生涯,老实说过得很快、很充实。当然有不愉快的时候,但是回想起那段日子,还是快乐比较多。特别怀念和其他记者的相处、一起追新闻的快感。在第一时间赶到意外现场、在事发现场守候、在高至大腿的积水中采访、在接到老板电话的数小时后赶到机场出国采访……很多很多,把那三年的时间填得满满的。

 

自己并不是从小立志当记者的那种。可以说是长大后误打误撞入行。小时候作文写得还不错,后来理科读得不像话,没办法就选择不需要太用功背书的mass comm混日子。因为华文程度比其他同学好一点,英文程度又比别人差,申请到早报实习。半年的时间过得挺好玩的,毕业前早报刚好在招聘,因为懒得找工作,就直接申请,就这样被录取。

 

想想好像挺没出息的,懒懒散散,没有认真思考自己要的是什么。可能因为这样,三年后决定走。真的不是因为厌倦了记者的生活,而是内心总是有把声音,质问自己“就是这样吗?”真的,继续下去没有什么不好。工资稳定、经验丰富、偶尔还有出国的机会。可是如果留下来,好像有点对不起自己。没有勇敢寻找自己真正要的。

 

踏出去后才发现,人最大的敌人真的是自己。没有什么比自我怀疑、自我否定更可怕。其实有很多事是自己能够胜任的、得到别人赞许的。偏偏,没有自信的自己反而深怕自己会辜负别人的期许。

 

人就是那么奇怪的动物。我应该学着正常些。

lesson #1

More updates on my “To Do List” drawn up in end April.

 

Started on item number 5 +learn to ride a bike last weekend.

 

I’ve always enjoyed being a pillion rider, especially when travelling, but thought it’d be great if I can ride one myself, and have an unhindered view of the scenery in front.

 

I guess there’s a bigger hurdle to overcome if you were to compare learning to ride vs. learning to drive. With driving, you know the instructor is sitting beside you, feet on the ebrake pedal, ever ready to pull the hand brake. With riding, you’re basically on your own. No one to babysit you, help you balance nor apply ebrake when you go wrong.

 

To be honest, I had to take several deep breaths before I could throttle and lift both legs off the ground. But it’s fun once I could ramble slowly on my own! 😛 I think I’ve only chalked up less than 100m so far, and no corners yet.

 

Still a long long way to becoming a biker chick.. haha..

My mom is so cute. We were chatting about the world cup earlier and she was asking if I made any bets. I told her because of my bad streak in football betting, I’ve given up betting already. Just five minutes ago, she opened my door, popped her head in, and asked if I want to bet with her. For a meal. She’s going for the Netherlands. Now that I’ve entered into a bet, lo siento, Espana,  adios~

 

Oh, and have I mentioned how cute my mom is already?

Been feeling rather crappy of late, but I can’t pin point exactly why.

Yes, work is piling up, but it is manageable. But then again, being a procrastinator does not help things much.

I feel I should be more driven, but the time I spent thinking is much more than the time I spent doing.

Maybe that’s why.

How irritating.
