Young & Stupid

Any of you ever look back…and think about all the silly things that you did in school? I bet you do. They never seem stupid when you were doing them back then right?

Kind of like..how some people used to skip classes and go to the kedai mamak for some chow, or like how the boys used to climb over the school fence and hide behind the bushes to puff their cancer sticks, or how crazy some of the puppy-love politics can get between the adrenalin pumped girls..goodness…the name calling, cat scratching, hair pulling, glass punching.. i’ve seen them all… sigh..the joys of school life..hahahahaha

Things like that are all part and parcel of being in school i guess. You’ll always have people doing all these things to “spice” up their life. Some of the craziness are fun and even better when you don’t get caught. These are done by the people who have brains. Then there are those who are just plain stupid. They do things to get the fame or personal thrill for 5 seconds, and then shame and embarassment for the rest of their lives.

For example, I heard of several 17 year olds’ MAJOR stupidity which happened quite recently. These three boys, whom obviously have not matured yet, stole a miniature light sabre from one of the toy stores in One Utama. This is not your average plastic light sabre poking device. I am assuming it is one of those collector’s edition series or the high range toys which could fetch up to a half a thousand ringgit. Why? Apparently they did it for fun. Stealing for fun? They need a definitely attitude tune up. Anyway, they successfully managed to sneak out with it, and so YAAYY!! WHOOPEE!! Triumph was pumping in their veins. And that’s where their “skills” stop. These 3 idiots WENT BACK to One Utama, the NEXT DAY, and played foosball at the shop RIGHT NEXT TO the shop where they stole the light sabre. For the thrill? I dont think so. More like Dodo brains. So because the shop owner made a police report, the police came, and since their faces were most likely very clear in the cctv, they were caught there and then, and taken by the police across the whole One Utama to the exit. Imagine the amount of shame the parents feel. From today onwards, they will be known as the thieves for the rest of their lives. Sheesh.

They were let off though, as they were all not yet 18. The cops should’ve just chucked them in jail for a night, to teach them a lesson. First it starts of for fun, then later on it’ll become a hard habit to break.

Either way, I still think that it’s plain stupid for the light saber trio to do what they did. And then return to the crime scene the very next day.

the ENFP

ok, i just stumbled upon this..apparently..i am a ENFP..that’s my personality type. After reading through..i’m like, WOW, that IS me!
hahaha…so i’ve decided to post it up here..just for fun 😀

Portrait of an ENFP – Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving
(Extraverted Intuition with Introverted Feeling)

The Inspirer

As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.

ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.

ENFPs have an unusually broad range of skills and talents. They are good at most things which interest them. Project-oriented, they may go through several different careers during their lifetime. To onlookers, the ENFP may seem directionless and without purpose, but ENFPs are actually quite consistent, in that they have a strong sense of values which they live with throughout their lives. Everything that they do must be in line with their values. An ENFP needs to feel that they are living their lives as their true Self, walking in step with what they believe is right. They see meaning in everything, and are on a continuous quest to adapt their lives and values to achieve inner peace. They’re constantly aware and somewhat fearful of losing touch with themselves. Since emotional excitement is usually an important part of the ENFP’s life, and because they are focused on keeping “centered”, the ENFP is usually an intense individual, with highly evolved values.

An ENFP needs to focus on following through with their projects. This can be a problem area for some of these individuals. Unlike other Extraverted types, ENFPs need time alone to center themselves, and make sure they are moving in a direction which is in sync with their values. ENFPs who remain centered will usually be quite successful at their endeavors. Others may fall into the habit of dropping a project when they become excited about a new possibility, and thus they never achieve the great accomplishments which they are capable of achieving.

Most ENFPs have great people skills. They are genuinely warm and interested in people, and place great importance on their inter-personal relationships. ENFPs almost always have a strong need to be liked. Sometimes, especially at a younger age, an ENFP will tend to be “gushy” and insincere, and generally “overdo” in an effort to win acceptance. However, once an ENFP has learned to balance their need to be true to themselves with their need for acceptance, they excel at bringing out the best in others, and are typically well-liked. They have an exceptional ability to intuitively understand a person after a very short period of time, and use their intuition and flexibility to relate to others on their own level.

Because ENFPs live in the world of exciting possibilities, the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery. They place no importance on detailed, maintenance-type tasks, and will frequently remain oblivous to these types of concerns. When they do have to perform these tasks, they do not enjoy themselves. This is a challenging area of life for most ENFPs, and can be frustrating for ENFP’s family members.

An ENFP who has “gone wrong” may be quite manipulative – and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.

ENFPs sometimes make serious errors in judgment. They have an amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, but when they apply judgment to their perception, they may jump to the wrong conclusions.

ENFPs who have not learned to follow through may have a difficult time remaining happy in marital relationships. Always seeing the possibilities of what could be, they may become bored with what actually is. The strong sense of values will keep many ENFPs dedicated to their relationships. However, ENFPs like a little excitement in their lives, and are best matched with individuals who are comfortable with change and new experiences.

Having an ENFP parent can be a fun-filled experience, but may be stressful at times for children with strong Sensing or Judging tendancies. Such children may see the ENFP parent as inconsistent and difficult to understand, as the children are pulled along in the whirlwind life of the ENFP. Sometimes the ENFP will want to be their child’s best friend, and at other times they will play the parental authoritarian. But ENFPs are always consistent in their value systems, which they will impress on their children above all else, along with a basic joy of living.

ENFPs are basically happy people. They may become unhappy when they are confined to strict schedules or mundane tasks. Consequently, ENFPs work best in situations where they have a lot of flexibility, and where they can work with people and ideas. Many go into business for themselves. They have the ability to be quite productive with little supervision, as long as they are excited about what they’re doing.

Because they are so alert and sensitive, constantly scanning their environments, ENFPs often suffer from muscle tension. They have a strong need to be independent, and resist being controlled or labelled. They need to maintain control over themselves, but they do not believe in controlling others. Their dislike of dependence and suppression extends to others as well as to themselves.

ENFPs are charming, ingenuous, risk-taking, sensitive, people-oriented individuals with capabilities ranging across a broad spectrum. They have many gifts which they will use to fulfill themselves and those near them, if they are able to remain centered and master the ability of following through.

the Hilton’s Paris

Went to have breakfast with 3 of my closest friends this morning..just to catch up and update each other on how life is treating us. It’s good to know that Dillot has been receiving job offers 2 months before she’s even graduated. Isn’t that amazing? She’s real smart and very grounded. One of the people who’s always around to keep me anchored and not go all goofy and crazy too often. So proud to hear she’s doing well..hope she passes her MACPA test thingy (i don’t know..some accounting stuff). She’s been studying her brains out..so I’m damn sure she’s going to fly high..

Chick and Rator is doing great as well..they’re both in super huge companies, and by the way they were talking this morning…i think they seem to have it all figured out. I was lost in all the jargons they used. I never clicked with accounts anyway..so whatever..heheh… but it awed me to hear my friends talk about all these “grown-up” stuff when all i could talk about was “i’m organizing a science challenge”. *sigh*

I’ve been working for almost a year now. Half a year ago i was extremely happy to be where i was. Right now, i think i need a break. I just feel that there’s so much i can do..and so much i would love to learn..and i’m getting nothing of that.. perhaps i should’ve thought more before i dived into this. I guess i rushed things.

Oh well.

Any of you ever read Paris Hilton’s “Confessions of an Heiress”? I know some of you might be huffing away thinking “how un-intellectual!” hehehhe…

Well, i purchased it as a gift some time ago..for a fan of that cheeky Hilton. Borrowed it for a laugh about a few weeks ago, and surprisingly, it gave me more than a funny read.

Work has been taxing these past few months. I’m starting to feel that if i stay there any longer, i’d have to take anti-depressants to actually get through the day. Then i read Paris’ little confessions. She was surprisingly funny and witty in her own way. True, she was not very big with words, but she made me laugh for sure..and on top of it all..she actually made me feel good about myself..surprise surprise huh?

I find her to be a humble person, who’s simply content with what she has and it’s not as if it’s her fault that she was born as an heiress is it? people are just jealous coz she has what they don’t. she’s just being happy and thankful..in her own way..heheh.. i like the fact that she can laugh at herself.. and that she love animals..LOL

Cheers to you, Paris. No matter what anyone says about you, I am offically a fan.
