This surely eased my depressive state of mind...

"Adaptation is one of humanity's greatest traits. Switching from e-mails to phone calls for communication ranks low on the difficulty scale. But if your previous boss was a hands-off type who let you get your job done your way, and your new one is a micromanager who insists everything must be done his or her way, that gets a little more difficult. Micromanaging is a serious issue, resulting from either a lack of trust or a need for control. If you think it's a lack of trust, try to earn that trust by showing how good your work is. If it's a control situation, it's likely that person is insecure and not capable of any fundamental change. In that case, you should either seek a transfer within your organization or find a different employer."

Not motivated to think of it anymore. The happy feeling I used to have is dying. I am really starting to get disappointed...

I know it's weird, but..

everytime I practiced on the piano to get the songs to perfection, I find my brain absorbs easily whatever I read afterwards!

My ME-TIME is going to end very soon..*sob*

I will miss the joy of waking up after 8:30am
I will miss my afternoon naps,
I will miss watching astro on late mornings,
I will miss spending a whole day rummaging through my mom's kitchen for items to pose for my Canon,
I will miss spending money - lots of it (till I scare myself),
I will miss driving to places that are not offices,
I will miss disturbing friends who are online at work,
I will miss having a proper chinese breakfast in the morning (all the while I eat ang-moh birdie food at the office),
I will miss spending insane hours in front of the PC surfing facebook and flickr,
and I will miss not having to go to work!

I am feeling oh-so-blah-bluek-bluuhhh

Whatever it is, it's definitely not because it's that 10th time of the year again. Somehow, that familiar paranoia crept upon me like that quiet cockroach in the corner waiting to pounce on one of my limbs and frighten me out of my wits.'s that ugly feeling I get when I lodged myself somewhere in the time tunnel and get stuck for ages. How do I define a time tunnel? In a cartoonish way of explaining it would be - the passageway that throws you around through time and makes your eyes go swirly, and then regurgitates you into somewhere that is so unfamiliar.

This feeling has been clinging to me like grime - I feel uncomfortable. I want a change, but what kind change? *stares again into blank space*

I have been thinking of flipping my current routine upside down just for the sake of changing. But most of the time, it's easier said than done. Thank you Bartolomeo Cristofori for inventing the piano. At least I have temporal escapades whenever I felt like it.

Maybe I should switch jobs? Switch my address? Switch the regular Joes and Janes for a new group of Tom and Marys? Switch my hair colour?(already did that and blondes don't have all the fun) Switch my wardrobe?

!@#$%^ What am I missing?

The Many Great Joys of being a Single Schmingle..

..based on previous experiences..
No other half to tell me what to wear.
I can sacrifice my long hair whenever I like or grow it back till it reaches my toes if I want it too.
My money is mine..
Have plenty of time to myself to pursue whatever and whenever I like it.
Spend almost the whole day playing the Sims 3 and dramatise their lives.
Play the guitar, and then the piano, and then the guitar, and then the piano...
Able to go out and meet different people without having a jealous partner.
Able to go out and meet different people without having them to ask me why didn't I bring my partner..
Don't have to pretend to be dumb because there's no other half to shut me up in the midst of a stimulating conversation to prove his point leaving me speechless
Wouldn't be told off by the elders if I don't know how to cook.
Inconsistency would not be rendered an evil trait.
Can hang out with the boys at work just foosballing, wii-ing , strumming or singing. (I luv y'all !!)
I can go on a holiday and not think about home for a whole week.
Can dance with anybody I want at a party.
Stay up late at night just to score a notch up on games in facebook.
Go shopping anytime and spend on anything I fancy, coz again, my money is all mine...
Available at any time for a couple of drinks or movies with friends.
Don't have to share somebody else's depression..
Feeling refreshed every time I wake up in the morning because it's a brand new day!
Have many, many goals at the same time and there's no one in the way.
Holidays are enjoyable even if I have to be at home alone - I have my otaku stuff and the TV, surf the web although there's probably no one to chat with
I have my own, special time any hour I want it.
Lucky for me I still have my great buddies around most of the time to organise makan-makan or coffee sessions
It does feel lonely at times and it sucked, but never for long!!! (Imagine being tied to someone and be left alone.......bleh...that must feel really bad.)

P/S: That said, all of the do's and don'ts above really wouldn't matter if I happen to find the right person to let me BE MYSELF - however, there's been some difficulty in meeting one such person at the right time, because - they are either always trying to control me, or they appeared at the wrong time. So, let's be single for now! :D Thank you mommy and daddy for the tireless support of your daughter as a single individual, and for reminding me that I have the total rights to my true happiness in life - I am SO GLAD I have you guys for parents :)
