The importance of... Essay?

In the modern world, people go to school to study, learn different skills, foster their natural talents, and all in, just to get themselves a job, find a place in the society, and earn a living to support their or gain wealth. As time grows, so does the competition. People became smarter, inventing new technologies, tools and the likes, discovering new scientific explanations for things that were previously unexplainable, finding new secrets that were previously untold.

With the number of people rising, more and more people join the work force until what we have now. A flooded market of graduates, clever people who are not good enough or more likely not known by employers, all the useful skills and talents wasted, and the reason is that there are too many people and not enough work for everyone. Also, because of that, the requirements of many jobs have gone higher than what we had in the past. What about those who were left out? The number is alarming. And for those who cannot afford to live the way they should, they feel depressed.

Stress - the silent killer. It is one of the greatest causes of deaths around the world, next to heart diseases. Depression, negative adjustments, and so many more, could all lead to different levels of psychological disorders, from neurosis to psychosis. These are illnesses that most people face during these days. Why is this so? People are affected by so many aspects and stimuli. Mental health is very important and the government should start focusing on improving the technologies and facilities in the local mental health institutes.

Like said, stress is a killer. There are many causes to it, but the greatest cause is related to work. People get depressed when they lose their job, because without their job, they could not afford the bills, food and even to maintain their health. Often, one who suffers a great deal of depression would attempt suicide to escape the pain. Another case is there, whereby some people who work all the time, die suddenly due to heart attacks or stroke without having any heart disease. Now how is that possible? With a good amount stress, you get all sorts of illnesses. People who are overworked suffer more stress than normal. People with a higher level of post are more likely to suffer from stress than to those below him or her. As time grows, so does the level of stress. After building up all that stress, many health problems take place. By the way, health problems were mostly caused by our mind. Even the smallest of illnesses can be prevented if we have little stress and a clean, optimistic mind.

The health and hygiene of a mind is very important and it forms not just a person, but a united body. The importance of mental health should be stressed. The government should improve every espect of the country's mental health institutes and change the views and perspective of people so that mental health is taken seriously.

How's that for a change?
Writing an essay in a blog?
It's just for fun, since I have nothing to do right now.

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

Thursday, February 22, 2007

It's almost March?! And 2007's day 1 felt like yesterday. Time flies~

In the middle of Chinese New Year, and I'm feeling sick again.
Had a bad sleep last night. My body's been aching since this morning.

Holiday ends on Monday. And I have to travel to college by bus, thanks to that freaking accident.
How am I going to live with that for months? Sigh~
I have to prepare and then leave home at least 2 hours earlier. Argh~
What a waste of time! All I'm going to do is listen to music and that's it.

Whenever I talk about music, I think of singing.
Many karaoke plans have been cancelled. That's quite sad (the formal meaning of quite is VERY) and I was really looking forward to making some real loud noise without disturbing people.

Hmmm. CNY is nearing its end, in terms of mood and holiday.
And right about now, my parents are on their way home from KLIA.
Leaving home again after my grandfather's birthday.
This time is going to be rather huge.
Like, my father bought my grandfather a car as present.
Yeah it's just a local car - Perodua Myvi. Not really fitting for an old man to drive around, but better than his really-old car - Volvo (now what the heck is the model?), which he loves so much.

Heck I need a new car. I need to have a car! Grrr~

The smell of Dust~

This be the day I'll never forget.
21th February 2007 - freaking car accident, so bad, I could have died on the spot.

Geez, my first and only accident, I hope.
Heck, I felt really bad, so bad that I forgot to take photo.

The whole front side of my car - flat.
The engine flat, radiator burst, front windscreen cracked, driver's side door in a slight fix. In short, the whole of my engine is waste.
Now I won't be able to drive for some freaking long time.

Good thing is, no one was badly injured.
2 cousin sisters with me in the car at that time, they got only scratches. Me? I don't feel any pain on the outside.
Just you know, the whole front side of my car was ripped off. A few inches away from the driver's seat. I could have died man, I could have lost my legs.
But thank God~ Sankyu!

How did it happen?
Heck, the one who hit me, was driving at around 80-90kmph, in a freaking residential area, at a freaking cross junction! So freaking fast for a short road.

First, freaking lousy CNY, then it gets even lousier.
Life sucks!


Where is my leng gam?

Chinese New Year 2007.
Geez, the most boring one ever.

Chor yat~ stay home play game.
Chor yee~ stay home play game.
Chor sam~ boring day at relative's house.

Plus got quite a few assignments. What kind of freaking new year is this?!
Heh! No more holidays from now on. Even if there is, there won't be enough time for me waste.
No leng gam to write blog some more.
What crappy days I'm having.


Friday, February 9, 2007

Lousy Festive Season~

It's kind of getting more difficult to make plans for all to join these days.
Chinese New Year is up, and it's really boring. Zzzzzz...
Strangely, I don't feel like it's coming at all, unlike previous years.
How come this year so freaking sien?!

Someone told me it's related to the country's economy.
Then I was like, huh? Like how?
She then said err, something about lower production due to less demand?? Then err, less advertising, hence the so-few "Gong Xi" ads. What else? Zzzzzz...
Also, this year's Chinese New Year is rather quiet. Normally, fire-crackers can be heard long before the festive holiday starts.

Even more sien is~ Valentines Day! Shit!
What's worse than spending a day alone, when that very day is meant to be spent with someone special?
It doesn't matter anyway. I haven't anyone special. Oh wait, no, I do have one in heart. But no one wants me to be their special one. LOL~
So all I can do is spend my day alone. =.=
Right, how useless of me~

Ding a dang dong, we're the champions~

I've been receiving calls from college every morning since last Wednesday.
The conversation that took place this morning: -

Aaron: "Hello?"
College Admin: "Hello Aaron ah? All Mr. K's classes for today cancelled, ya."
Aaron: "Oh? Mr. K's class cancelled again?"
College Admin: "Yes he's sick."
Aaron: "Oh~ Sick ah? Okay thanks."
*chic-chuck* *ding dong diao* =.= Sony Ericsson's end call tone sounded like that.

Because of all the class cancellation, I didn't go to college for over 1 week (plus that leg injury).
I had to turn in all the leave letters this morning instead.
Upon seeing my letters, the college admin showed blurriness and said something about the letters' approval. I wasn't paying much attention as I was kind of late (not really late lah~ but I can feel the lecturer's presence already lol).

At home~
My keyboard/piano skills dropped all the way down, kissing the sea bed.
Haven't play for so long. But as soon as I started, I learnt a new song. Hahahahaha!
That's the way~ uh huh, uh huh~ I like it~ uh huh, uh huh~


Monday, February 5, 2007

Bloggers & Readers~

Are you an active Blogger? Or maybe even reader?
Well if you are, then you must know who is Wingz of Rojaks.
If you don't anyway, he's a blogger that never fails in entertaining people with his blog entries.

Yeah by the way, he's got this Bloggers' Party thing, which I very much like to join. But I don't think I can make it there. It's always the same case.
Transportation problem or I don't know the way there. Plus exam's rather near to the time that event's being held.
Sucks eh~

Argh! Off I go~

My dream~

I kind of like the feeling of this.

Thanks to Ryan who started this idea.

Photograph taken using Sony Ericsson w850i.
Quite a few models have this "frame" mode.
Have fun!

What is your dream?

Have you ever thought of joining the Malaysian Idol, or anything similar like say, singing competitions? Dancing auditions?
You know how people always say, that: whatever your dream is, you should go for it when you're still young.

Yeah you should go for it when you see the opportunity.
But should we or should we not take the industry's condition into consideration?
I think we should.

I have this friend whom I usually hang out with during my time in college - he know some people who were given a chance to sign a contract with a local music company, but they declined the offer.
It happened years ago, and the reason they declined was because Malaysia's entertainment industry wasn't really that stable and safe yet.
Truly, it was hard for local stars to compete with world famous stars.

But now? It's obviously different. The industry is growing fast, and I think it's because of all the competitions. The first competition (my first time viewing anyway =.=) that went live on Astro's Dynasty package's Wah Lai Toi, which I'm not so sure of the date, was okay. And so it started.
Various talent quests started taking place. More and more people started joining, seeing the profits and fame (yeah I like that too). For those who didn't quite make it through the auditions, they try finding their way into the industry through other methods like drawing media attention, find a job related to their singing dream. The number is ever increasing and that is probably what that's been contributing to the growth of the local music industry.

Yeah. I'm also a hopeful~ ^^
But I haven't any confidence, not even for a single attempt. What a failure. Aiks~
You may have many supporters. But we're talking about something really BIG! Then again, you have to be the best of the best to win!

To all who knows what you want to do, good luck in pursueing your dream.
To those that are still clueless, or worse still, never spent any thought on this subject, start thinking about it before it's too late.
Have fun with life y'all!~
