New me...weeee

eh should be singing MJ's songs, not Lionel Richie's. Lionel Richie belum mati! -pun intended-

Anyway, where do I start. A lot of things has happened since the last time I posted my blog..I completed my degree, Michael Jackson died (can you believe it), Obama this Obama that, PPSMI was abolished, (damn I hate that one!), more 1Malaysia....blah blah blah.....Anyway, a lot has happened.

That also includes me. I was at home waiting for final results. When I got mine I was so bloody happy, (still am, actually). When I told family of my results they were equally as ecstatic. Then I had to really look for a job, instead of pretending..So I started paying more attention to ads for job vacancies...

I actually was quite ready to say goodbye to labs. I've told myself many times that I, as a graduate cannot demand too much, that I cannot be too choosy, or I'll end up in one of those sad statistics of unemployed grads.

So one day, I saw this ad, looking for a technician, of a health equipment. They need a science grad, well that's me your looking for, I thought. I immediately e-mailed my resume, and received a call shortly, to arrange for interview la. Then when the day came, I was so ready. There was a girl before me and I thought I definitely can kalah kan this gal.
Then, I went in. Interview went well, actually. Went very well, cause I stayed in the room for more than 40 mins! We were talking happily, discussing this job scope and all...

Ok. Then 3 days later, I got a snail mail, I did NOT get the job! I didn't get it! And I was bloody shocked I didn't secure the job. I'm a science grad, with good grades, I'm confident, presentable, can speak fluent English, can communicate well, loving (yes I am)...I'm strong, I can do anything. Even if I don't know how to do it the first time, I'll be able to do it soon enough! What is wrong with me that they didn't want me??

A few days later, I was no longer angry, kept on telling myself that maybe it's for the better, and hell yes it IS for the better!

Cause a few days later I read this ad from a giant co, wanting to recruit a bunch of fresh blood, braced myself for the interview and got in! And I don't even have to say goodbyere to labs!

Huh what a luck! But then again, there's no such thing as luck, my friend. Luck is actually YOU opening up to possibilities and actually snap up the opportunities that come to you as you move along. There's no such thing as luck. Only you, with eyes wide open, and have enough balls to grab the chances that present themselves to us. We decide our own luck. We do...

Huhu.. And so a new chapter begins...
