Hello 2014!

Because my favorite family was away on holidays last weekend, leaving me to house-sit and water their tree, I had a nice, peaceful, quiet time.  Also managed to get a chance to get to mass early enough for confession. Now onto my new year resolutions.

No. 1 - working on the relationship with my mother.  (At the confessional, I was told very wisely that my mother is my "spiritual asset").  Sigh.  I hear you, God!

No. 2 - perspective.  When I had a job, $ in the bank, healthy working limbs, I bitched all the time.  In 2012, when it was all taken away, I learned how not to take things for granted.  Now I am grateful I have a chance to groan that it is Monday and I need to crawl out of bed and go to work!  Thank you God.  You are good, all the time!

It's like that funny story we repeated while at the lousy start-up I was with.  We had this European customer that had a long laundry list of stuff they pestered us to fix.  One day, the server in our US office crashed, and suddenly in perspective, none of those "must-fix" bugs mattered when faced with irrecoverable data loss.  At that time, we laughed it off over lunch.  But that's precisely the lesson in life : it is all about putting things in the right perspective.

No. 3 - discipline.  No more slacking off, must do my daily readings.

That's it.  I will focus on these 3 for a start.  So help me God!

Merry Christmas!

It all looks so clear now. Yep, I got an iPad for Christmas from Ian/Michy. The bestest family a person can ask for. Not just cos of this gorgeous iPad, more so the support and encouragement the past half year. It has been a trying year, can't wait for 2014.

Happy birthday to me!

Things did get worse, the job hunt grew protracted and dry... In desperation, I stayed beside happy people - Matty of cos is happiness personified, and started to run with some seriousness.  Just when I worked myself up to a comfortable 25km in training, a fall during a run rips the innards of my knee.  It gets worse : my hospitalization insurance coverage is woefully lacking.

It never rains, it pours.  Truly.

Thankfully our Lord only lets you endure to the point He knows you are able to.

Things finally turned for the better.  To new opened doors.

Never never never give up!

As Matty sings his song from Thomas the train : "never never never give up, even when you're feeling rough... If at first you don't succeed, never never never give up!".

The last 2 months has been an emotional roller-coaster ride of hoping/praying followed by crashing back to earth with each job rejection.

The economy is not doing well.  Right now, I don't really know where I am heading and I have no credible interviews in near sight.

But I will, never never never give up and keeping hoping/praying in the Lord.

Monday morning blues

This morning I woke up and did my first PCN to East Coast park run.  Took it nice and easy and as is my usual style, prayed for and got a few red lights for me to stop and catch my breath a little.

I'm only out running cos I have this half marathon race plus Mount Kinabalu hike that I'm totally unprepared for and gasp!, it's this Saturday!

Why o why o why o why do I do these things to myself....

It doesn't rain, it pours

To add to my life's woes, I met with a really stupid accident at the car park beside NTUC Marine Parade.  I only needed a quick place to stash the car to run into Parkway Parade to grab a dozen cupcakes.  Clearly I made a wrong choice of car parks.  Now I have this gash along Roar's side bumper.  Sorry Roar.

People reading this, please, it's a car park, not a grand prix track.  Can't you even wait 10secs for me to back into a parking space?  I do not appreciate the inconvenience, more so the extra $$ to fix poor Roar.

Life sucks.  I sat at mass ultra moody, listing my shit list to God.  Oh help me please!
