Wielding the "Sword" (aka, The Bible), are my NTU cell mates. Red was not the color code for the day. Aren't they cute? Teehee.







Jed and his tangle of legs.











My NTU cell girlies hanging around (literally) at West Coast Park. I say, Let's do it again! :-DD







Coaching archery at the police carnival. I like teaching, except that it made my throat sore for about two days.










My free Body Shop gifts. *beam*








Animals. Don't. Read. (notice how low the sign is placed?)

i just found out tat a doc (quite hansome ) is a gay. I cannt believeit, he actually got a frendster acct that shows his frends' gay pose. I feel like telling my frends but i dare not, cos it will have serious repercussions. some of my frends like him leh, they will be heartbroken. i think i better shut up even though i m really gossipy

I agree. I suppose the best thing at the moment is to make the best of what you have right now. :-)

About the doctor.. i'm curious about whether it is really him or someone posing as him? secondly, if it really is him, he did after all put up his profile publicly for the whole world to see, so they have equal chances of finding out too. but yeah, i guess it would be wiser to keep mum about it just in case.

tats y for my competency tests i nv ask him to check for me, if not he will start nagging at how bad my work is. Haiz, i think i cannt work in private, those doctors will be mad at me that 1) work is not gd 2) slow at it. I think i better switch career. be a small clerk or sth, anything but not this field anymore. i dun have wat it takes to be good at it

i see. well gal, i believe you have some idea about where your strengths lie. why not use this time, while you still have a job and earning, to think about your other options. so that at least you won't be "stranded" after your bond if you really choose to leave.

Anonymous said...

tats the word to describe my feelings, "stranded". i sometimes wonder what i m going to say to pple if they ask me if i have no interest, why did i spend 6 yrs on this job? then how? say no money to pay back bond? sounds cheesy lo. i cant justify why i spend so much time and energy on sth i dun like

Ambrose said...

if you guys ever come back to read this, here's what i have to say.

1st) your doc reminds me of a chem teacher we had: Mr Paul Cheong.

2nd) you aren't alone. a majority of university undergrads/grads find themselves stranded in something they don't have a direction or interest in.

3rd) it's not cheesy. it's a fact. the bond is there cause somewhere along your lifeline, you chose to sign on a dotted line. you don't get rich working as an employee under contract, so it's just an honest assessment of your situation. besides, i've heard of others who just can't wait to finish their bonds. look no further than the men in green ^^

4th) it's tough, but here's what i'm facing. i'm stuck in uni (undergrad) flunking half my modules and struggling to grad, with almost zero interest (and worse, near zero understanding) in what i'm doing. so what do i do? squeeze out time to do stuff outside. for me, there's doin other jobs outside school, start a business (considering), taking up night class. from a practical non-religious point of view, life is linear, with no U-turn. so if you find yourself stranded, and you can't bail out, don't hesitate and waste time. find something else worth doing during that time.

sure it may be hard, but you might find it worthwhile once your bond ends =D oh! and this is not an advertisement, just voicing of my interests. i like investing, so i've been reading up. if you believe in making $$ work for you (hence freeing up your time to do other stuff), juz drop me a sms. i'd be delighted to discuss pros and cons of investments.

**in all honesty, i'm in no way associated to any insurance and/or banks. and neither have i the capital (YET!) to invest. but heh. i need to squeeze out as much as i can out of my time, don't i? =p

sorry for long comment!

jo! mari! *waves*
*poof!* *disappears*

so many pple said the same thing to me. well, hope i dun get fired on this job first and wait until this toopid bond ends then i can do sth else...heehee...saying things now are just too early

joline said...

anon and ambrose:

actually, i agree totally with Ambrose. (something i seldom do... ok, KIDDING.)

Anyway, thanks bro, nicely put into words and it makes perfect sense. Takes initiative to make something happen in life.

girl, the next time you work on someone's teeth, tell yourself that you CAN do it, k? don't let it be a self fulfilling prophesy that you cannot do a good job.
