Thoughts Of Today

Life's Lessons

As my year off from university is drawing to an end, I am now confronted by the daunting prospect of my final year. It can go two ways. Good or bad. If there were an in between then that’s not good enough.

I love my job at the airport. I feel appreciated and wanted within my work. I love my colleagues and I love that the job is active and social. If I am not communicating with passengers, then I am communicating with staff and if I am not communicating to staff, then I am communicating to passengers. If there is one (obvious) thing to take away from this, is that I can say I am less anxious about people.

Well, I’ve kind forced myself back into society and relearned how to talk to people and care less about judgemental people. Always remain friendly, polite, and professional within the work place. Do this, and you won’t go wrong.

So what do I like about my job? apart from the social aspect, I also like how active the job is. I am never stuck at one place doing the same one thing… I do one job for 20 odd minutes before changing to do something else. The job variety is incredible.

I also love the fact that I can tell people what to do haha “Sir, please remove that belt.”, “Madam, The high heels need to be removed and into the tray”, and “Are you carrying any items for anybody who is not travelling?”. There is an ego behind the uniform to say the least.

The best thing is walking through a supermarket after a shift with my high visibility jacket and “SECURITY” printed on the back… It grabs the attention to say the least but that could just be the fluorescent yellow colour. It be an even better bonus if all woman had a thing for men in uniforms too… *sigh* haha

I don’t mind waking 2am or 4am or 10pm for my job. It’s different. Not your average 9 to 5 office job. No, no, no. Far from it!

Excuse the short gallery but photo taking are restricted at work!

My greatest concern is that perhaps I love this job too much.

ta ta for now

Hello WordPress, my old friend

Rants and Raves

Hey all,

Don’t worry guys, I’m alive and well… only just! haha

So, to keep this short and simple. Since the last post I wrote, a lot has happened.

From being reunited with my long lost cousin to getting a job.

let me start with my first job that I got through an agency. Possibly the weirdest phone call I have any got and if I recall it went something like this “Hello? Is that Andrew? Would you like a job starting tomorrow? Yes? okay, I’ll email you the details.” and that was that.

So yeah, I got the job. No interview needed. Little to none training. And what a stressful week and a half that has been! The job title was “Data Processor” but truth be told, I worked in a call centre-esc job ringing people after people… After a week, I just gave up. I started getting anxious and if a job can do that to you then it’s not worth it. Especially if I did just get a pay rise after two days! haha

Anyway, two days after quitting I got a new job. I have to be sensitive with the information I put out here but I’m just a security guy who works at a place with lots of planes haha. So far, so bloody awesome! The people are great and friendly. The job seems interesting and varied. And me being a typical guy… Dayumm… Some of my colleagues are HAWT.

Oh yeah, I’m also licensed to frisk! haha

One of my best friends has also gone to Spain to look after his ill grandparents so that’s a little heartbreaking. We don’t know when he’ll be back considering I’ve spent every night chilling with him since my break from university.

There’s plenty more to tell but I guess I really don’t have the energy anymore. I suppose I’m doing what I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and that’s just to do something of myself.

Anyway, I guess my correspondence on WordPress will be a minimal.

ta ta for now.

Dance With The Devil

Quote Of The Day, Rants and Raves

Dance With Devil

Usually, I would post a title with “A Little Quote Of The Day” but this is so much more than a lyric or a quote. This is a story. And such an descriptive story yet somehow I wonder, could this story be true?

DISCLAIMER: The following lyrics do contain strong language that some readers may find offensive.

Instagram Quotes That Can Sink Your Boat Or Keep You Afloat

Life's Lessons, Rants and Raves

Hey all,

I’ve been browsing through Instagram for a long time and specifically, I follow “thegoodquote.co” because of their highly relate-able quotes that hits me in the heart many many times. So I just thought I would share a few with you.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There’s just that something when you read something that means something (haha). I guess that’s what makes us humans… Our abilities to feel, and embrace our emotions. And the way words can hit certain part of your heart, mind, and soul. It still confuses me how and why a set of words or a simple sentence can be so powerful but hey, call it art. Somethings we don’t have to comprehend but just go along with.

In times where I have been so low and down and well, just depressed, I find comfort in reading quotes (sad or happy), just so I know that it is possible to explain some feelings into words but most importantly, whoever wrote the quotes in the first place must have experienced the same as me also.

So, in my current emotional state, I just want to say, make the most of your day and enjoy everything and anything.

peace.

 

ps. For those who know that I sign off with a “ta ta for now”, I think it’s cooler to say peace instead LOL.

Isn’t it weird?

Rants and Raves

Isn’t it weird how one person can put a smile on your face? Isn’t it weird how you can feel so natural with someone and just get along as if you have been talking for years?Or Isn’t it weird how your week can be turned upside down, wrong way round, by one person? …From the good, the bad, and the damn right hilarious!

I won’t go into too much details* but if you can read between the lines then that’s awesome!

*I end up talking a lot about nothing. 

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Enough Is Enough.”

This is just one of my many experiences where I’ve ended up fighting on… Stubbornly may I say too.

So once upon a time, I liked this girl… a lot. We talked a lot and liked each other a lot too. So I ended up asking her out, but she had her doubts.

She felt that she didn’t want to be “hurt” again. So I told her I would never hurt her.

She said she was worried about what other people think. So I told her why should we care about other people when it’s about me and you?

She said she was afraid to love again after her previous relationship. So I said, don’t let your past burden your future or you’ll be stuck there.

etc etc etc

In the end, we went into a relationship. It was brilliant and I loved everything second of it until her heart had a change of mind.

Then it ended. Pain and misery then rained on my parade.

I kept trying to keep it together and I tried so hard too but I could already see the end. I fought to win her and I fought to keep her… All for a chance.

If asked whether I would do it again I would say yes.

That’s right. YES.

I realised that, if you don’t try then you just won’t know and she wasn’t the one for me. Take a lesson from all the bad in your life experiences. Learn from it.

Enough Is Enough

Those Kinda Friends

Life's Lessons, Rants and Raves

Hey all!

Seems like I can type comfortably now! Unless I will injure myself later playing football (touch wood that I don’t). And for the bloggers across the pond that’s soccer also know as football – you play with your feet.

Anyway, enough of that. What I want to say is, the friends who you don’t have to speak to everyday or see, but when you do meet up, you still have the best of times. Friends that you can still reminisce the good old times. The ones where you can pick up and carry on having a laugh after the last time you met… They’re what I call friends… Best friends even.
