The night before exam is like a night before Christmas. You can't sleep, and yet hope for a miracle.

UPSR 2016...

The exam format has been announced recently. I find this strange because didn't the MOE thought about this out when they first decide to introduce the KSSR syllabus back then? It should be thorough, right? Or this is just the way I think? ;-p

At least, they should have it firmed up and ready when the first batch started their Tahap 2 lah kan.

Anyhow, I don't foresee Mira getting any As, inikan pulak 6As. She might surprise me though, who knows. I'm not being a pessimist but I do know my daughter well enough. She doesn't give a rat's ass about school.

She may be dyslexic, but she is bright. And I'm not only saying this because she's my daughter. She has a talent to memorize things just by visual and by ear. However, she only applies her 'talent' on things she loves. Studies, unfortunately, is not one of them.

I have constructed a study plan for her finals. My hope is for her to at least pass her exams lah. We even discussed the hows and stuffs. I even give her a pep talk, just to keep her motivation high.

But here's the thing. If the plan is for her to study a subject for an hour a day, I find myself having to give her pep talks for 45 minutes out of the hour. Because within the first 10 minutes after we started, she'll become unhappy. The next 5 minutes, I will start to get agitated that I have to stop before I turned into the wicked stepmother.

How else can I help her see that SHE CAN do it? That she needs to find her own style of learning? I can help only so much. That she has the brains, that she is a bright girl, and that she's not stupid?

She can do it, you guys. Essay writing and maths is a different story lah but for the rest of the subjects I know she can score. But tu lah... the person herself doesn't believe she can. How?

That is all.

Be Yourself and You will Increase in Beauty

I wanted to blog about some progress (if you may call it that) in my work life, but... got sidetracked. Let's listen to this song instead. I'm obsessed with it!

That is all.

We totally got out magicked in our own magic house. Unbelievable.

I hate my job. But I'm with the most flexible company ever and I need to be flexible right now.

But I just hate it! I'm totally lost as how to make it successful. I have no interest in it, what-so-ever. Stress wei.

It would have been something I'd like to do 10 years ago. I think I'd be happy and excel in this job back then, when I'm so involved in managing a website and blogging and such. But social media has made me lazy. I hardly blog here as you can see because creating an entry needs to be thought out properly. Ayat kena susun cantik2, the sentences and paragraph must flow coherently and what not. It's not like, just typing a short 140 characters or post a photo that says it all.

I have to persevere for at least another few more years. Until Mira don't need me to be at her beck and call at least. Then, I'm going to go find another job that I like to do. Like, HR maybe :p

I need a holiday!

That is all.

I made a choice, this is my path.

The other day I took Mira to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was awesome, I really enjoyed the movie. I liked Andrew Garfield's Spider-man/Peter Parker in comparison. He is rather snarky.

So yeah, I somewhat didn't see the number 2 at the back. Half way into the movie I realised I haven't watched the first movie. WTF. I shared this bit of trivia with Mira and guess what? She and her arwah Ayah has already watched it on Hypp-TV.  No wonder la she's familiar with Gwen Stacy and their backstory. Haih.

The next day I bought the first movie on iTunes. Good thing it was on discount, too.
