I'm very certain

Massive uncertainties has dragged me to what I call now as my life with lost of directions. I've been in college for soon-to-be three semesters now, but I'm still not firm of what I want to do for the rest of my life. Giving that in mind that what I choose to major right now would somehow, if not entirely affect my life, career, whatever it is related. I'm in crisis, at least that's what I'm only clear of.

Choosing a Computer Science major over a Business major is really challenging, but the other way round, it's too risky. As I learned from most people associated with my life that a Business major is a waste of time, they said. As of right now, I have not even gone half way through the requirements mandatory for a Computer Science major transfer student. Okay, enough of negative thoughts...

After being inspired by The Magic, written by Rhonda Byrne, I thought instead like this: though I'm really confused at this moment, at least I've got some time, two months time to decide what I wanna do with my life.

The Problem with Obesity

I recently came to notice that Malaysia is full of obese people. Yes I said OBESE. I don't know why but I could hardly see any fit and healthy humans in this place - Malaysia. Every where I go, I see enormous people with a huge tummy hanging there. All I could say, this is really unhealthy! So, where did all the healthy people go? I couldn't agree more, and I'm not stereotypic or nothing, they be in the gym. They look more like the average humans from the Paleolithic Ages.

People who workout or maybe just exercise frequently at the gym, and of course eating a healthy diet, tend to be fit. They're well toned and they look healthier! But why? Look, joining a gym is unreasonably expensive for most people, given that the income they earn (minimum wage RM900?) is obviously not enough. Secondly, healthy foods, like organic groceries, are double the price of normal stuff. A pack of organic spinach will inevitably cost you a nice 8 MYR. I mean, it is way out of the average grocery list spending. Moreover, the cost of living in KL is high, yes it is high, usual grocery shopping will cost you about 100 MYR, how could the average income earners afford organic groceries?

Let alone groceries. Let's talk about eating out. Having a lunch at Subway Sandwich Bars would cost you a reasonable 7.5 MYR, well what about having a salad? A simple salad could cost you 12.5 MYR !!! What the hell? Too bad but a burger at McDonald's only sets you back for a nice 4 MYR from your wallet. So, you gonna have a salad or a burger? You know the answer when your pocket's real tight.

Now, do you see why the obese people? Expensive gym memberships, costly organic foods and crazily cheap McDonald's burger. I couldn't agree more that these facts are the main reasons to obesity in this place. So what you gonna eat today?

quote of da day #32: Life's path

Reality equals motivation

The old days had gone and in four years time, I'm about to open the doors to the outside world, the realistic and competitive world, look for a job with my bachelor's degree and live a different life from what I'm practically enjoying now. It is very challenging just by thinking of job interviews... I fear interviews. These unusual thoughts started to cross my mind almost everyday before I go to bed. And, by saying unusual, I meant that I didn't ever had a thought about it before, ever.

What is more scary than to face reality? I guess nothing. Reality is there, we will have to face it one day, good or bad. Try thinking like this, if you wanna find a path with no obstacles, it probably wouldn't lead you anywhere. The obstacles down our road are the realities of the world we would face. Looking from another point of view, the obstacles we faced are like small little hints or rather, directions, giving us guidance along our path. When the very little hints we accumulated teach us as we go, like how we learn from our mistakes, obviously it is gonna lead us to a bright new start.

Now, reality seems to be a good form of motivation huh.
