Would you consider yourself stressed?
No, I’m not stressed. I’m… busy. Plenty of people are busy. I have a high-powered job, my career is important to me, and I enjoy it. OK. So sometimes I do feel a bit tense. But I’m a lawyer in the City, for God’s sake. What do you expect?
The moment I read that little Q&A on the first page, I grab the book immediately and couldn’t stop reading it.
Nothing feels better than a good chick-lit. Cheesy, I admit, but it’s addictive once you’re hooked. Like a good Korean drama.
Well, that’s the voice of the protagonist, Samantha Sweeting, who needs to be on-call every minute of her life. Thank God she loved her job, so she works so hard.
At times when I receive writing assignments from other, paid or unpaid, sometimes I stick myself to the assignment so hard that I couldn’t sleep or think very well in other aspects of my life. I can hide it, but in my mind I keep wondering, what better ways I can change to make the point clearer? Then I’ll log on to my Google Docs account and revise the piece. I’m lucky that I’ve always been working with generous editors, but for copywriting jobs, you’re the editor and the scribe at the same time. More often than not, they only want results but they don’t provide you guidelines to improve your writing better.
Well, what can I say, I’m still 21 and I still have yet more experiences to, well, experience.
Along with the novel I had my cravings satisfied for the week with that daifuku. I really satisfy my cravings every now and then because I can’t leave things alone when it’s not going out of my head.
But these aren’t complete without true satisfaction. These are satisfaction for the moment. These are little pleasures – a good novel and some sweets.
True happiness is beyond satisfaction. It requires no external motivation for you to giddy up. It needs self-control, playing up your skills, and having a greater purpose than yourself.
