Stress Management

Greetings to all! 

Wow, I seriously got no time to write something for my blog. It feels like a waste to keep this blog untouched for a very long time. As a final year student, I am dealing with a ton of assignments, projects, examinations, and my final year project. It is really exhausting and I had to deal those things with sleepless days. There was a moment where I did not sleep a wink and went to finish all my works and it was hella exhausting and I could not even speak correctly. I know it is very unhealthy and very dangerous for myself. This thought often comes out from my mind, "I am so bad with time management and planning". I couldn't agree more. It is true. I am bad with time management and planning. 

My plans were always changing last minute and from that, I end up doing my works half-heartedly which I hate the most. Although my works were satisfying, people were unimpressed with my proposal and it was very exhausting. So, I keep doing the same thing repeatedly from day by day. It is very tiring, annoying and exhausting. everything was not going so well and I keep failing. It makes me wonder, "Wow, I am really stupid"

One day, I felt too suffocated with that unhealthy lifestyle. I need to get out from here. I need to breath fresh air from somewhere nice. I need to do something that will keep my stress away. But to cope with my stress, I always drawing something. But, I don't have enough time to draw. Something came out of my mind. I decided to went to watch the sunrise near the beach. I always get to watch the beautiful sunset but rarely sunrise. 

I went to watch the sunrise at Pantai Minyak Beku, Batu Pahat with my housemate, and it turns out well. Watching sunrise along with the sound of the wave hitting the beach calming my mind and keep myself back to the neutral. I can't stop smiling that morning. It seems like the wind takes away my burden and stress, the sun rising seems like lifting my energy and will, and the wave is hitting my inner self to keep me going. Subhanallah, seeing Allah's amazing creation is so calming. 

 The beautiful sunrise although it does not come out at the sea. But I still satisfied. Next time I really should check the compass direction at the chosen area to watch either sunrise or sunset. πŸ˜‚

A picture of me. I touched up the picture a bit by using Adobe Lightroom. Isn't it amazing?

A little break is also one of the ways to manage your stress properly. Go for a walk, do something you like, exercise and go hiking. It is important to keep your mind healthy and strong. All you need to do is run away for a little while, and come back to finish what you have started. We all need a me-time sometimes.

Have a blast!

Racism and Discrimination

Greetings to all!

Disclaimer: For sure, it is not applicable for all of us, but for most of us and our society

So, the topic that I will talk about today is a bit sensitive. But, I still want to highlight the issue in this public platform so that many of you can read and started to open your eyes to the whole new world. From what I can see, our country itself is a good way to see the modern racism, discrimination, and segregation For example:
  1. Government worker only for Bumiputera
  2. The Private sector only for Chinese
  3. Hiring male workers only for the construction industry
  4. Hiring non-hijab women only

All the racial and gender discrimination is just a bad parasite nowadays and it seems so hard to get rid of it. This is a nasty and the truth that we must face and take immediate attention and action. But rather than blaming others and waiting for people to take action, why don't we started it first? Start from a small scale by not doing anything racist and discriminate the others. The most obvious thing that we face today is mostly when the fresh graduates trying to find a job. I can already feel the heat when I am trying to find a place to do my internship especially in my field of study. I am a civil engineering student where mostly they want a male student or a male worker to be on site. It is hard, and it is the truth. It feels like I am not qualified and I don't have the skills. That is why I must take an initiative to be better and I will prove to those people that I can do it and make them want to hire the minorities. πŸ’ͺ Rather than waiting for them to change, we need to work hard to prove that we are extraordinary, promising and presentable. In the end, all of them care about is the money and benefit for their company.

The door for opportunities doesn't automatically open, you must walk and open it by yourself. Try to grab the opportunity. If there are no opportunities available, create one for yourself. πŸ’₯The world has so many selfish people and you must be strong enough to push them to make a way for yourself and to change. Moreover, stop making racial comment and jokes. It may be funny for you but not for the others. I think that kind of jokes are making you look stupid and a loser.  πŸ’’

In the end, stereotypes are just stereotypes. πŸ’ The race is like our body, it cannot be ignored and we can embrace it. But, race alone doesn't reveal everything about a person. It is their attitude, heart and mind is all matter. Love people just the way they are and not because of their race. Educate yourself with morals and if you are lost, the only solution is to back from the start and look the basic and your main purpose of life. πŸ’‹ May all of us can stop being so racist and discriminate against the others. Have a good day everyone!

Being An Adult

Assalamualaikum and greetings to all!

Instead of writing for my Final Year Project 1, I am writing for my blog.πŸ’ But still, I should give a good topic for my post.

Fast forward, I only have one more semester left for my studies. It has been 5 years since the first time I entered university. It is so fascinating yet scaring me because I will be facing an adult life. For sure, It won't be easy and it will be challenging. Most people still unaware that the way they approach and conducting their life more like a child rather in a mature way. What does it mean by being an adult? In my humble point of view, being an adult is when you started to feel responsible and conducting life using your brain rather than letting your emotion controlling your acts. But, maturity doesn't come from your age, it comes from your mind and the way of thinking. If you are older,  doesn't mean that you are mature enough rather than someone who is younger than you. Try to get rid of that sceptical way of thinking.

An adult also can be rational with their decision. It is important to think before making a decision. An adult is able to distinguish between feeling and intellectual thinking. The level of responsibility when you are an adult also improving. It is because you will start to manage your own money, to properly make a decision for someone, to be the head of a family, and to be a leader. It feels like a journey to the unknown through the stormy sea. No one really knows where and how to. But, that is the spice of life and may all of us can face adulthood with a positive mind and life.

As an adult, it is important to have a 'me time' once in a while. Well, sometimes being an adult can be tiring and exhausting. Getting a massage, a nap time, or movie time won't make it worst. In contrast, it will make your day brighter.

That's my two cents. Thank you for reading!

The Sims 4 Addiction

Assalamualaikum and Welcome to Jellove!

 The semester finally over and it is time for semester break! Yeayyyy! Usually during semester break, I will do everything I love to deal with my boredom to try making my holiday worthwhile. Other than drawing, reading books and watching dramas, I also love to play computer games! Especially The Sims! So far I have played Counter Strikes, The Sims, Naruto Shippuden and even Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallow Part 1 (Potterhead detected). I can guarantee that you also will love playing Harry Potter game. It is so freaking fun and I addicted to it. So thrilling and the story-line is quite different from the movie. That what makes it exciting.

When semester started, usually I stop playing computer games. But, for this semester, my urge to play computer games uncontrollable. It is one way to cope with stress that keep hunting me this semester, and one way to release my anger. Hahahaha Well, playing the sims doesn't makes me get angry because the game is not that intense. 

Why I love The sims so much? It is because I can dress up my sims, I can design house, I can decorate my house, I can even kill my sims (evil laugh). Oh ya! I love the new mod where I can change my sims to vampire. It is too fun and it is hard to playing games for only 10 minutes.

So, I would like to introduce my sims characters: Edward Hanks and Eva Hanks. Hehehe, actually they had son but I remove it because it was so hard to take care of a toddler. So much care.. hahaha

 Edward in formal attire. Hehehe.. I am not good in dressing male character.

Edward in Everyday attire and close up view. 

 
I love dressing female character. There are so many clothes and I feel like shopping for my self and I can just spend hours to dress up one female character. This is Eva in everyday attire.

Eva in formal attire. Gosh! She looks so gorgeous in this dress, and I am freaking love this!

Eva in Party attire.

 Eva's full makeup look for party. hehehe!

FYI, I play the game is just for fun. Don't take it seriously. It is just for fun and I had fun, that is all matter. Maybe later, I will show you guys the house that I designed in the sims. Oh ya! I think that the sims works pretty well just like Sketchup and I think it is better. Sketchup is a software to drawing in 3D. Usually the architecture student will use this sofware, and also Civil Engineering student. I use the software to design house for Reinforced concrete and also Engineering Drawing and AutoCAD. The next time, just use the sims to build a house. Hahaha

P/S credit to all the CC mods maker. Big thanks from me!
See ya!
