Being Lazy is a Blessing

It was one sweet afternoon, I was in a food stall having lunch. While waiting for my food, I have nothing to do. I can feel the gentle breeze of wind, under the shade of the roof,  and I’m glad it was after lunch hour because it was so quiet and relaxing. I could just sleep on the spot, but it’s like my memories travels along the wind, it all came back to me.

I still remember when I was in my secondary school, we have our own hostel rules. We are forced to go to the field and just do something, as long as you are not staying inside the dorm around 4 o’clock. Everyone would prepare to play varieties of sports, but I just don’t feel like doing anything. So I just lay down under the tree, having the grass as the carpet, the blue sky as the ceiling, close my eyes and slowly fell asleep. Not a deep sleep but rather relaxing, as if I am floating.

Sometimes I felt stressful doing so much revisions. So I would just climb on top of the building, no, I never thought of committing suicide, it’s not even in my To-Do-List. I even take the mattress with me, enjoying the evening breeze with a mini radio beside me, watching the sunset, although the musics were crappy but it doesn’t matter at all, it felt too good to be interrupted. I mean, some people paid lots of money to go some paradise just to have what I experienced, and I get them easily. I’m just lucky to grow up in a place where it is near the beach. I always get to watch sunset too.

When I can’t sleep at night, I would go to the balcony and just enjoy the midnight breeze, often there were other friends that can’t sleep as well, we just enjoy the moment having good chat with each other. We sometimes would just escape from the hostel to go to a nearby beach, catching crabs and barbecued them on the spot. It’s not delicious, it’s just fun to do all these things. We enjoyed it as if there’s no tomorrow, no worries at all.

As I grew older, I’m just not that lazy anymore. I knew that if I am not working hard enough, or at least put much effort, I wouldn’t achieve what I dream about. I believe that goes almost the same to others as well. Some struggle to make end meets and some struggle to walk their dream. In the midst, there’s just people who are still lazy, as if they have no dream, nothing wanted to be achieve. I mean, I do work hard now not just so that I can survive on my own in the future, but being able to feed the others as well.

For those who don’t need to work hard now, I really think it’s their blessing. They need not worry about tomorrow, they are just so confident that they don’t have to do anything now and yet they can live well in the future.  Not all people have these kind of blessing, some come from a poor family, some from a broken family, and some just want to ensure a better future. I really miss those days where I can be so lazy, and just do nothing at all. It’s all different now, and I guess I’ll have to work harder now just so that I can be lazy again in the future.

Nightmare is a Waste of Time

For more than 20 years I walk the earth, nightmares still crawling around me. Nobody likes it, nobody want it, yet nightmares come to you uninvited. The nightmares colonized your fantasy for as long as they want without any warning, and vanish whenever they desire. They shapes in all form and understand you well, well enough to manipulate your beliefs that you would start doubting what you are, not just in the dream, but in the reality as well. They don’t attack once, nobody knows when they will strike again, but everyone can’t deny that the nightmares always leave behind confusion and fear.

See what I mean? I just wasted my time describing how cool the nightmare is, I mean, what’s the point? I should be studying for my exam! Yes, you did it again nightmare, well done. Well I’m not quite sure what is the purpose of writing all these but I do know that it was because of the nightmare I had recently, I got the idea what to write. No matter what kind of nightmares, it’s always either you can’t yell, you run very slow, strength reduced 80%, left defenseless, helpless or simply humiliating. These are the common things that I experienced in my nightmares, what about you?

Those common stuff that I experienced in the nightmare, are not the big problem, after all it was only just a dream. The main problem is, nightmares come while you are sleeping. When I go to sleep, I’m expecting to rest my body and mind peacefully, without any distraction. However, nightmares come uninvited and ruined the good time. I mean, come on, don’t these nightmares have anything to do? Go take up some music instrumental class or something, do something useful, contribute to the society! Anyway, the nightmares cause my brain cells actively running and disturbing a good night sleep. Hence, not enough sleep and feeling tired for the next day. So basically I’m suppose to be sleeping, but the nightmares ruined it and I wasted my time lying on the bed for nothing.

Imagine, if the nightmares give some sort of warning letter 5 days ahead, then I can plan and rearrange my schedule properly to make way for the nightmares. Probably sleep more before that or try to finish stuff earlier. See that? It’s a win-win situation. Unfortunately we all know that won’t happen, it’s just my fantasy. But seriously, if I know nightmares would come, I might just stay up and do other useful stuff, although tiring, but at least I make full use of my time, much better than rolling around the bed don’t you think?

Again, my time is wasted trying to describe how nightmares wasted my time. I once was kid, fear the nightmares of its creepiness. Now, I still fear the nightmares, for its time wasting ability. What about you? Nightmares creep you out?

Family Guy

Compared to the previous midterm holidays that I had, it seems to be quite unique for what I’m going through now. Unlike how I used to waste time traveling around, I spent my time wisely this week.

So I’ve been busy with a few dance competition and also other stuff such as assignments, homework, exams , sleeping eating, etc. Despite being so busy in the holidays, I still feel bored after midnight. I tried to find more entertainments but still it ain’t working. Then I felt so tired that I let my brain do the work, the body get to rest. Many theory and fantasy going in and out until something interesting struck into my head. The fact that I’m staying far away from my family and being a guy, leads me to think of the family guy. Hence, I decided to watch the family guy when I’m bored.

I went through all my hard disk only to find out that I only downloaded 2 seasons of the family guy. Which is season 1 and 2, I finished watching all of it. I tried to download other season of the family guy, but something better came up, watching it online. So of course, soon I found a link for it, and it’s free.

Season 9 of the family guy start off with a good episode, and now, I finished episode 6, I want more!!!

The Red Dice

Since this post in categorized as random. I am going to tell a random story. The stories centers around a place named Cyberjaya. There live many boys and girls, but I am going to talk about one boy only, me. I bought a new sony handycam mainly to record my own choreography, persevering memory and produce casual videos. As for producing casual videos, I randomly inspired to use red dice. Hence, a search for red dice begin.

According to the standard protocol of a searching mission, research about the subject is require before any further action and that is what I did. Okay I am sorry, I lied, I did not do any research for red dice. With no hesitation I walk out the house and start looking for red dice. Deep inside my heart, I knew that the red dice is not something common, therefore, I decided to travel to KL, the “New York” of Malaysia to search the red dice.

From station to station, bus-stop to bus-stop, yes, I reached KL. Since the red dice is rare, so I started off with the rare looking stall and shop lots around the “golden river”, Sungai Wang. Surprisingly none of them got what I came for, the red dice. That did not stop me to keep looking for the red dice. I re-draw the plan and try to allocate another strategic location.

The next location was Time Square, a place where the time is always square. Every time I step into the building, I feel that my time is square. I did not get distracted by other things, I was fully focus on the searching. I start asking around the mini stall and they all shook their heads like they never did before. I keep walking until I came across some gifts and souvenirs shop. I pull all the courage from all direction of oxygen and ask the cashier, ” Do you sell dice? ” . ” What’s that? ” she replied. I said it twice but she shook her head. I shouted to my friends outside the shop, ” Hey, what do you call dice in chinese ?” and I deliver the message using chinese, but still the cashier shook her heads. The shop owner came out and just about before he speak the first word, the cashier somehow understand me. She said, ” Oh, dice, sorry we don’t sell it here.”

That was disappointing, but no matter what, I was determined to find the red dice. I tried the magic store, but they do not sell normal dice. Instead, they ask me to go for the bookstore. The bookstore, where people sell books, also happen to be selling dice as well, but it was white dice. All the negative event did not discourage me. However, I was a little bit tired for carrying too much of hope with such result.

No matter what, I keep on walking, in a square manner. When all hopes seems to be fading away, something bright was just in front of my eyes. I heard some voices coming from the shop, it was so soft yet sharp. The shop looks fancy, it was a fancy looking gift and souvenirs shop. The moment I step into the shop, I can feel the presence of the red dice. I tried so hard to look for it, from left to right, up and down, the red dice was no where to be found. Again, I summoned the courage from all direction of oxygen, to ask the cashier. She gave me a sad look saying, ” We do sell dice here, unfortunately they are all red in color 😦 “.

Despite looking at the sad face, I smile in return. ” Perfect, that’s what I need. “, I said. I can see all the red dice, all red looking gorgeous dices. I was so obsessed with it that I purchase three red dice at the price of RM 3. With the red dices in my palm, I felt like holding the world, full of glorious joy. I walked home with glory that day.

LOL LOL LOL

I still remember when I was 14, I went for a stage performing camp. I learned many things but I forgot most of it. One of the thing that I remember is about writing a script. It is not necessary to write long script to get good impression. A person can use just one word in a conversation, with different facial expression and intonation, to indicate different understanding and respond, yet effective. After that camp, I realize it applies to our everyday life too. It is so true, and some Russian sang a song using only very simple lyric such as, oh , ya, ho, and LOL. In the song, I heard mostly he sang LOL. Here’s the video clip, enjoy the song.

Thesaurus

Dinosaurs used to be my favorite when I was a kid. I like dinosaurs so much that I “rawr!” at my cats and dogs when they are sleeping. I can recognize them just by their look. No matter how different the dinosaurs were among them self, I always identified them easily.  Despite having unique look, the dinosaur possess scientific name that usually are long and difficult to pronounce. For example, Tyrannosaurs rex ( T-rex ), Ankylosaurus, Plesiosaurus, Apatosaurus, Lambeosaurus, Spinasaurus, Stegosaurus and so on. Most of their name end with the “ rus “ sound, and that is how I classified a name if it is a dinosaur or non-dinosaur.

One day, I saw the word “thesaurus”. I said to my self:”This must be a dinosaur’s name, I wonder how it look like.” So I search in the internet to find the answer, and it was so disappointing. It was the saddest moment of my dinosaur memories. I tried to search as much definition as I could but the fact is, Thesaurus, is not a dinosaur.

A thesaurus is a book that lists words grouped together according to similarity of meaning (containing synonyms and sometimes antonyms), in contrast to a dictionary, which contains definitions and pronunciations. In terms of information technology, it is use for information retrieval purpose. The word “thesaurus” is derived from 16th-century new Latin, in turn from Latin thesaurus, from ancient Greek  θησαυρός thesauros , meaning ” storehouse ” or ” treasury” (and thus the medieval rank of thesaurer was a synonym for treasurer). This meaning has been largely supplanted by Roget’s usage of the term.

I apologize in advanced that I will not talk more about thesaurus because I found it very sad, none of the description is about any dinosaurs. It’s ok, at least, now I know that not every word that end with the sound “ rus ” is a dinosaur’s name. Most importantly, I learned that sorceress is definitely not any dinosaurs.
