day 1 and day 2

Day 1 and Day 2 of orientation went extremely well.
i was so glad to be able to emcee again. decided to make emceeing/hosting as a little part of my life ever since i had a taste of how it is like to be in the center of attention, emceeing away, and it all started 3 years ago. it is true fun (informal emceeing).

taken a few pics after day 1. was pretty hyper regardless of my exhaustion. :P

totally random

if life were easy, then it wouldn't be life.

so why don't we set every downside of life aside, tilt our head high and set foot and embark upon the unknowing yet exciting journey that lies ahead?

yes. smirk at the challenges and obstacles and say "HA! GOTCHA!"

Heroic warrior

nothing gets more exciting than this.
the end is here and it as it marks the start of another
the sense of anticipation grows ever stronger.

i am no heroic warrior.
but even the greatest warrior sense fear, the only element that set us apart is that they counter fear and beat it.

therefore in the face of fear i always tell myself
be brave, don't run.
problems would be unresolved if i run.

therefore i make myself face fear and doubts.
because i know what matters most at the end of the day is to get through it all and then and there i shall get my reward.

Norms, Conformity, non Conformity

"To think that one has gone too far -- that means one has already accepted society's norms. It is already a form of self-censorship."
-(Oliviero Toscani, designer of Benetton commercials)

my interpretation

once or twice in a day, you would hear a tiny little voice in your head telling you what you are doing does not feels right. i believe most of you would have encounter this.
so where does that voice comes from?
you can say that it is your conscience speaking. but don't you think most often than not, our thoughts are highly influenced by what we perceive as norms?
we act like what the society expects us to be.
we walk like how we are supposed to be.
we talk like how we are supposed to be.
and when we come across someone who doesn't, we judge. we gossip. we stab them right at the face saying "you do not belong to us"
but have you ever thought of WHY we react that way? or so to say, why the society in general REACTED that greatly?
it is because the general mob of them feel that they are challenged.
or rather, they are jealous.
JEALOUS? you say?
yes. jealous. these people gossip about the people who dare to go against the norms because the non conformists are doing EXACTLY what the conformists do not dare to do.
conformists might think of going against the norms. but they never make a change and act in that sense.
non conformist on the other hand, act, walk, talk, the way they want without worrying a bit about the norms.

however, non conformist is very hard to come by.
once in a while, you would see a tinge of rebellion from the conformist.
yet peer pressure would tie them back down.
if only the rebellious conformist can hold on a little longer...

when a non conformist becomes phenomenal, other conformists would start to move towards copying THE non conformist, so that they feel as if they are being rebellious towards the societal norms.
well, they are self-deceiving really.
even if you can imitate what THE non conformist do, you can never BE the non conformist.
and i'll tell you exactly wHY.
you never got deep and interested enough to grasp the essence of being a non conformist.

Go figure.
