Random thoughts: A hot pan to another

Recently, I was considering a career move. Due to a recommendation by a friend, I explored a partnership in a potential venture. 

The discussion didn't end well. I gave the matter some.thoughts and decided to talk to more people.

After that, I realised I might be jumping from one hot pan to another. 

Made me feel better although nothing much has changed. I do not think I will continue that venture. 

Another blogger made me realise there is a big difference being wanting to start your own business and wanting to be self-employed.

So... I decided to be manwhore one more time. Since now I have a different boss and going to have a different job scope next year.

I given up my chance for any future promotion or pay increment with this lateral movement to another job scope. But I am very happy. 

Today, I finished my last appraisal work. No more. While I know there will be plenty of challenges in the future, I know I will be more at peace. Better to do what I am good at then trying to convince myself that I can do something I no longer believed in well

I really like the 3 questions Jack Ma asked himself. What do I have? What can I do to what I have? What I am willing to give up for what I have. 

I know what I am not willing to give up just yet. So is time to shut down and be at peace.

I might still keep that option open and look it for various angles. 

Here is a picture I find really interesting.

The grass is always greener at the other side; there is always a more shitty job.

Random thoughts: What my P6 kids want?

It's been 3 years since I start asking my P6 pupils to make name cards for themselves. I told them to think of what they like, and that the job they want need not exists in reality. I quoted past years examples like Pokémon Trainer and Hacker.

This year is really fun. The session is a good opportunity for me to talk to them about their interests. 

This year, the choices are more varied and interesting. I have 
1) Kept Man
2) Housewife ( Although I think they are referring to Tai Tai) 
3) Gym manager
4) Gardener
5) Female pilot
6) Dancer
7) Game Streamer ( Something I learned)
8) Assassin
9) Ah long (She keep saying "legit one, legit one")

It is really fun talking to them. One very guiet girl designed a name card of a singer with a studio company. She looked up at me and suddenly start rapping, saying she wanted to be a star and that she think she can do it. I replied with a rap (cannot shu Sia) 

The assassin wannebe name card is the design of death note. 

I tease many of the pupils as they talk about their "dream"

Hope they remind innocent and dreamy. Is a hallmark of youth.

随心笔:周围

我工作的地方,
其实挺美。

是时候放下,
往前看。
插秧的季节过了。

弯着背这么久,
天黑了。
休息了。

别去想明天。
明天会到。

Bragging rights: MIT

Warning: Irritating Post LOL

I have always had that elusive 2 baggers. It's like a badge of shame. Never holding something long enough due to lack of conviction or greed for a quick profits.

I am always jealous of CW 10 baggers hahahha, although not in a malicious way.

Finally, I got 1 2-baggers. 

MIT!!! Yeah! I brought it in 2014 Dec at 1.45, including dividends receive over the last 4 years, and capital gains, I would make over 100% if I sold it now. 

If u looking for reasons for this wonderful win, I will say luck.

Hahahah. Finally got lucky. 

I already said this is a irritation post. Size too. It's not a big amount of my portfolio, so I just let it be and didn't have the intention to sell. Of course, my original thesis did not change and I did not really have to do hard review. I did want to add at 1.7 but it didn't reach the price after I did a review 2 years ago. 

Yeah! 


随心笔:喜欢

喜欢出门时,看得见太阳
更喜欢在咖啡的陪伴下,
看到破晓。

一个人,喜欢。
放空,享受偷来的半刻闲。

突然,思绪归位,
变得有条理。
突然,想让自己更好。

喜欢自己给自己空间。

随心笔: 怪胎

怪胎吧。
忙完了,很空虚。
很想念,很舍不得,
却不知道说什么。

在身边的,不珍惜。
盲目地给,
不知道对方要不要。

怪了,也就一起走过十个月。
却常常觉得心缺了一块。
他们还在,好想跟他们多说几句。
但不知道说什么。
说出来的都是废话。

很可笑吧。
也许,有人希望我跟他们说废话。
但话却又少的可怜。

脑筋空出来了,
总是胡思乱想。
原来忙,是我的避风港。

现在,
突然会想起爸爸问我够不够钱花。
会看着手机,
有没有学生问问题,
有没有学生传口试录音。

现在,
在听另一个年级的口试录音。
好像在找替身一样。
替身的背后,还有去年他们的影子。

奇怪了。
我真是怪胎。
