Wanting to study, Maximising the crap in life and doing some charity..

Usually my titles are very straightforward but after reading too many blogs and being exposed to so much flowery english and indirect phrases, i thought i do the same. Wait a minute, its actually quite clear what i want to talk about today isnt?

I think i mentioned before yesterday, i am having a vague feeling of going back to study. Two days ago, i was having a simple dinner with a old uni mate and having a drink with a couple of uni mates and the university days came back to me in a rush. Traveling up to my brain in a matter of seconds, i realised i missed the flexibility of studying. I couldnt predict where i was at night or where i would be in the morning. I could be out having a drink or supper late at nights, matter of fact it was everyday. I could be cuddling my bolster to the late mornings and not give a toss in the world because i didnt have lectures that day. My life seemed like the new wonder of the world minus the studying and the exams of course. Nowadays, especially with the background music of the rain, you can predict where i will be by 9pm..in bed, either lazing and cursing why my wireless broadband doesnt work, blogging and surfing the net, reading a couple of pages of my Audit crap that i will be tested on in September and of course leading to sleeping by a young 10.30-11pm.. Needless to say, my wake up time is fixed at 6.30 am and obviously by 8.30 i am already in office, either stoned from too much or too little sleep..

So should i admit defeat to the working world and go back to study? Its too way too early to decide and i am not growing younger by the day..should i just go back and study?

Second procrastination issue..my latest crap in life that just got myself into..I wont bother with work..its dead and mouldy as it is and no matter how much i crap about it it wouldnt improve unless a miracle happened.. I am talking about Toastmasters.. Well not many might have heard but its a scheme or program where one goes through and finish 10 individual speeches with different criteria and finally awarded by being called a Competent Toastmaster.. What was it meant to achieve? More confident speaking and encourage people to pick up speaking skills when it comes to presentations.. Unfortunately, my dear company makes it compulsory for everyone to become a Competent Toastmaster in order to get promoted.. its all fine, if everyone takes in the crap and keep quiet..but of course they are people who think otherwise..which comes to my conclusion of why cant people just maximise the crap in life?

Since its already crap as it is..why treat it as crap? Why cant people just cant go with the flow and learn how to benefit from it? Why cringe and suffer when you drafting your speech to add vocal variety? Instead attend the bi-weekly meetings and see how the actual thing is done? I know its alot of time..2 hours out of 14 days.. i mean its just after a meal every fortnight or just an episode or two of drama.. Why am i procrastinating? because i feel the whole scheme has just failed miserably and i am helpless because i am just bearly weeks old in this upcoming year committee..

Sigh..what can i do to get people to enjoy?

Lastly, as charity advertising..i present pictures after lots of words..



My dear Kamsiah is now selling her chocolate cake, want the fudge on or separately and pour it in the first picture? Its your choice.. Tired of all those boutique and complicated cakes? Just want a homely soft plain chocolate cake and the guilt when you are licking the hot fudge off the plate? Drop a comment on this post, on my chat box or give her a call @ 017-2727005.. Selling at only RM 40 either fudge on or fudge separately.. Delivery charges are separate or pick up from the city..

Well i was bribed with lots of the cake..thus the charity advertising..Ok time to go to work..Ciaoz

Maybe we should bring that for the potluck! Ah wait.. maybe not.

Back to those studying days, they were such bliss compared to our current 9-to-5 miserable life. Overworked and underpaid. Life is so pretty, ain't it?

xiu long bao said...

N Joe, u send to me lar during lunch time, free of delivery charges.

Anonymous said...

wah....this cake is really very, very, very delicious.

Yes I agree with Slacker...Her choclate chips is good. Combined with nuts.... equally delicious. You can eat as many as you like and will never get "jelak". Coming back to the cake....I like it when the fudge is microwaved for about 30sec and pour it on the cake and eat it warm. Hmmmmm mouth watering. Think its time for me to place order.

Joe Boy...can I order 2kg cake pls. Will pick it up on 30/7 say about 4pm. Pls saperate the fudge like that day. I like it warm.

The 2nd cake picture looks like a steep cliff to me, if you climb it, you will find that work is just not everything in life.

I was like you (that means I very the old liow)...before I graduated, I hated studying and wanted to work, then 2 yrs after working, I felt like going back to study again, then going back to study, I wanted to go working again. Sigh....
