women. and shoes.
Why Women Dress Up and Get Cosmetic Surgery?
by Brandon U. Hansen

Cosmetic surgeries, both major and relatively non-invasive, are on the up and up. In my experience, the reason given most often by the recipients of such procedures is "for myself". No one wants to admit they are undergoing surgery because they care so much about what others think, right? However, I doubt women go under the knife (or the Botox needle) to impress their husbands, boyfriends, or even men in general. I think the real motivation is betrayed by observing when women dress up. How much effort a woman puts into her non-surgical appearance (e.g., everyday makeup, hair, clothes, showers, etc.) is a direct reflection of how much she cares about the way she looks - and what are the situations in which women expend the most effort to "dress up"? Do women dress up when they are alone? Rarely. When they are just with their husbands? Maybe on special occasions. When they are going out? Sometimes, maybe even usually. When they will be around other women who might be dressed up? Always - whether or not their husband or men at all will be there. Cosmetic surgery follows the same trend; it might be for the boyfriend or husband to some much smaller extent, but the major motivation is feminine competition, plain and simple.

*reading the article* touche. typical women, and their feminine competition. i /always/ get into that kind of situation. just set a girls night out, and then off i go spending 2 hours just to take a shower, put some make up, and change my clothes (for about 8-9 times). feminine competition indeed.

ever seen a pair of shoes that are just SO beautiful, that you quickly set your eyes on them the minute you got into the store, and that you don't even care about the price, or whether they have your size or if they don't? and then when you tried to go to other stores, and look around about 500 other pairs of shoes, you just can't get your mind off that first pair of shoes you saw?

i found myself that kind of shoes. it's been in my mind for several nights. the outlet i went to didn't have my size, a tiny 36. i asked the sales person to look for those shoes in other outlets, and all outlets only have the ones on the display. except for the 1 outlet in Taman Anggrek, they have the last brand new pair in my size.

i think i'm about to cry. it's finally mine. ^^

women do love shoes.

and whaddaya know..
around 6 months ago, i desperately waited for any call coming from the companies i applied to at the FEUI Career Day, namely PWC, EY, and Unilever. none did. the only call i got was from an int'l company who would pay me for about 2,5 million rupiahs a month (gross), and asked me to work from 8 AM until 1 or 2 /AM/ from Mon - Sat. an offer which obviously i rejected.

i gave up my 6 FREAKIN' YEARS dream to become an IT auditor, after that particular interview, and i stopped waiting.

now, after building a company with a couple of friends, with all its ups and downs, i finally got the calls. from 2 companies, one asking me to come to their office to go for their test, and another one telling me that i've passed their first test (CV reviews, i think).

goddamnit! why NOW?! this is definitely not a blog entry to brag, it's a blog entry in which i particularly am being furious of getting the chances NOW after waiting a long time ago, before i chose /this/ path.


anyone else got any follow up from the companies at FEUI Career Day?

What's Your EQ?
Your EQ is 160

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!

51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.

71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.

91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.

111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.

131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.

150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

passed thru the "used-to-be-our-usual-route"...
... just this morning, then all the feelings rushed in. it was like an old video being played back. now i'm feeling nostalgic.

Selalu Teringat

Di malam senggang
Di derai hujan
Belum mampu 'ku untuk melupakanmu

Di hangat siang
Di terik terang
Belum dapat 'ku menghilangkan ingatanku

Telah kucoba namun tak bisa
Menghapus dirimu

Selalu teringat kepadamu
Kemana pun kumenuju
Selalu teringat kepadamu

Di perjalanan
Di keramaian
Belum dapat kutemukan penggantimu

quote of the day
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new." -- Steve Jobs

and that, my friend, reminds me of a particular client..... *air mata lurus*

long delays
i have a very good reason why the delay from one blog-entry to another is getting longer and longer: life has been pretty hectic.

and yes, like always.

life has always been hectic for me, as some people might've known: because i choose to live it that way. i can't stand doing practically nothing, the reason why i don't really like vacations. and this kind of working life, is the one thing i've always wanted.

you see, when this company was built about 5 months ago, i had no clue on where it was going. at first, i thought it was pretty much just handling web-projects. so i thought, how hard would that be. and boy, i was wrong. as time goes by (especially in the last couple of weeks), it has finally shown some signs of where it is about to go to. the goals/objectives, the plans, the dreams. having 2 positions at the same time kept me pretty occupied (and thus, the delayed blog-updates), especially when the company keeps on revolving, to find its true form (ceile... :P).

these couple of weeks have been hell-ish, i keep on losing track of time, i would wake up in the middle of the night just to write things i have to do in the next morning on my PDA and then go back to sleep, i have no clue of the current day of the week everytime i open my eyes in the morning, i feel woozy when get out of the bed, i drink more coffee than ever, i sleep normally after 1 AM, just because i need to make sure that everything goes under control.

call me crazy but really, i enjoy my current life. i really do! :) life can't be better. i feel euphoria when i'm busy like this; the only thing that stays as a routine is the fact that there are always scheduled appointments everyday, but whom i meet and where has always been a variety, and it's fun!

in summary, this is my way of saying: i might not be able to update my blog as frequent as i used to be. there ya go. heheh.
