CECILIA AHERN

Salam,

Dulu minat sangat dengan penulisan Sophie Kinsella, tapi start terbaca novel Wedding Night terus hilang mood nak teruskan pembacaan. Novel satu ni macam tiada ‘UMPH’ yang saya cari seperti novel-novel tulisan Sophie sebelum ni. Biasa. Terlalu biasa. Mungkin perubahan umur nak masuk angka tiga membuatkan genre novel yang lucu, fun dan imaginasi ala-ala remaja baru naik bukan jadi pilihan lagi. Kut!

Cecilia Ahern. Wah, sebut saja namanya terus teruja. Cecilia, novel pertama awak yang saya baca ialah “One Hundreds Name”. Serius, saya sangat suka. Lebih-lebih lagi watak utama novel tu bekas seorang wartawan-yang-dimalukan-kerana-satu-insiden dan berusaha mengejar dan mengorek apa cerita disebalik 100 nama yang diwasiatkan oleh editor yang telah meninggal dunia. “Every Heart has story to tell” . Rasa sangat dekat dengan jiwa saya. Cecilia, saya sudah habis baca novel awak “How To Fall in Love”. Novel ni watak utama cuba memujuk hero bagaimana untuk terus hidup walaupun kita kehilangan orang yang kita sayang. Mengharagi apa yang ada di sekeliling kita. HEBAT. Novel ni hadiah harijadi saya tahun lalu daripada kakak kesayangan. Oh. Mungkin ada mesej disebalik tajuk novel ini yang cuba kakak sampaikan kepada saya, memandangkan saya tiada cinta hanti. Kut!

Cecilia, novel ketiga awak yang saya baca ialah “Thanks For The Memories”. Novel ni masih saya letak tepi bantal atas katil saya. Masih saya belek bahagia-bahagian yang membuatkan saya ingin jadi watak utama. Bukan novel biasa. Watak utama juga seorang wanita. Wanita kuat yang cuba bangun untuk teruskan hidup setelah kehilangan sesuatu yang berharga, dan tiba-tiba datang satu keajaiban yang orang lain tidak akan dapat. Dengan nota kecil tertulis dua perkataan “Thank You” boleh membuatkan hidup sipenerima gusar dan tertanya-tanya. Ajaibnya perkataan “Thank You” itu berlagu-lagu dalam kehidupan kedua-dua watak utama.

Cecilia, terakhir novel yang saya belum sentuh “A Place Called Here” juga hadiah harijadi saya tahun lalu daripada seorang rakan. Tidak sabar untuk meneroka karya awak.

Kenapa saya suka baca karya Cecilia?

Mungkin penulis ini lebih matang, jauh ke depan, imaginasinya di luar jangkaan dan paling penting TIDAK MENGARUT!

Tetap sama

Salam,

Ehem..terkesima sekejap bila tengok pelawat blog buruk ni mencanak naik sampai 600 lebih kelmarin. Errr..apa korang cari sebenarnya? Ahak!

Selamat berpuasa 9 Muharam hari ini. Nasib baik teman-teman ingatkan hari ini 9 Muharam, kalau tidak ter’miss’ lah bulan mulia kali ini. Esok jangan lupa teruskan puasa 10 Muharam ya…:)

Hampir setengah tahun tak update blog. Fuhhh! sibuk mengalahkan menteri. Sibuk layan malas..ngehngehngeh .

Sedar tak sedar akhir tahun semakin menghampiri. Apa akhirnya kisah hidupku? status? kerjaya? kewangan? Sebenarnya satu sahaja jawapan; worst! Huhu…sila menangis di bawah tangga sambil makan julap.

Kisah hidup
Nothing better than last year. Tetap seorang yang biasa, cita-citanya juga biasa, yang luar biasanya kewujudannya tetap sama, ada tiadanya dia tiada yang peduli. Huargggghhhh! Sudah menambah hutang lain, selain hutang PTPTN dan pinjaman ASB. Ya, my baby boo…kereta la.
Dia tetap orang yang sama empat tahun lalu. Misi dan visinya harus berubah tiap tahun baharu, tetapi pencapaiannya masih ditampuk lama. Laaaaaaaaaaaammmeeeeeeeeeee…^____^

Status
Unjuran umur semakin kalut menaik. Orang sekeliling risau akan diri, tetapi empunya diri membuat muka tapai tak sedar diri sudah status andartu. What to do?
Orang pergi umrah, sibuk minta doa. Orang pergi haji kalut kirim doa minta jodoh, kan jodoh, rezeki dan kematian di tangan Allah.

Heh! Life must go on, even alone..>___<..yuckkk! sebenarnya pujuk diri dan orang lain yang bosan tengok aku sendiri kut..:)
Umur dia berhenti takat 21 tahun hari itu..tujuh tahun lalu.

Kerjaya
Ya, tiga tahun masih di sini. Kuli katak.Kalau kuli batak boleh lagi dibebaskan oleh majikan. Tapi kuli katak sangat selesa deng sekeliling, tidak mahu pindah dan cuba persekitaran baru.

Alahai, sudah tua cenggini, tak ada masa mahu cari pengalaman dan kawan baru..:)

Kewangan
JIka diaudit oleh bank negara, mungkin dia termasuk dalam berpuluh ribu remaja Malaysia yang muflis. Sila angguk kepala sayang.

20 Signs You’re A Creative Person

1. You have an authority problem.
Creative types don’t always get along well with management because they would rather march to the beat of their own drum.

2. You have a hard time relating with people.
Most people have a strong desire to fit in, something that you don’t understand. Conformity is gross.

3. You like to solve problems.
While most people are running and hiding from problems, you purposely seek them because you love nothing more than a fresh new challenge.

4. You are your own worst critic.
You wrote a blog many months ago and thought it was wonderful at the time you published it. But then you read it again later and wonder, “What the hell was I thinking?” You then identify approximately a thousand ways it could have been better and kick yourself for being so stupid.

Note: Coincidentally, this is why I REFUSE to read my own old blogs and articles.

5. You ask lots of questions.
A stagnant mind devoid of curiosity doesn’t have the capacity to create.

6. You carry a notebook everywhere you go.
Because how else can you remember all those brilliant ideas that strike you on the fly?

7. You find beauty in the ordinary.
Creatives live in the present and are in constant awe of the world around them.

8. You are numb to rejection.
Let’s face it: it’s a hard world out there. If becoming a writer or actor or artist was easy, a lot more people would do it. Getting that dreaded rejection letter stinks at first, but eventually you become able to just shrug it off and go on to the next one.

9. You understand the power of atmosphere.
There is a reason some authors travel to a rustic cabin or sandy beach to write their novels. Some atmospheres are more conducive to creativity than others. Maybe you like to pack up your laptop and go to a coffee shop, downtown bench, or under a tree at the park. Whatever the case may be, you know the locations that boost your creative juices.

10. You think most people have poor taste.
You might find the movies and music most people enjoy to be downright terrible. I don’t know about you, but I believe a kitten dies every time someone listens to Nickelback.

11. You are a people-watcher.
Why do people watch TV when real life is infinitely more interesting?

12. You aren’t in it for the money.
Money pays bills but it doesn’t provide happiness. There are much easier ways to make a living. This isn’t about money, it’s about passion.

13. You experience emotional highs and lows.
Your emotional life is not a straight line. Instead, it is more like the path of a roller-coaster full of dips, drops, hills, loops, and twists. Sometimes you might experience an eruption of happiness and a crash to sadness within mere moments of each other. The most painful parts usually find themselves in your art.

14. You seek inspiration.
Inspiration doesn’t happen on its own. Whether it is the opening of an art gallery, a theatrical production, or live music at a downtown bar, you search for inspiration wherever you can find it. It’s nice to know you’re not alone in your desire to create.

15. You have an interesting sense of humor.
Off-color jokes are the best kind of jokes.

16. You evolve like a boss.
An ability to adapt to challenging scenarios is necessary for survival in the creative jungle.

17. You hate stereotypes.
You understand that human beings are way too complicated to be dumped into gender roles or stereotypes.

18. You don’t have a filter.
Don’t you think life would be much more fun if everyone just said what they were thinking with no filter? There is no such thing as TMI (Too Much Information).

19. You take time to think.
Your brain is your greatest asset.

20. You don’t bend to pressure.
Whether it’s a hater who thinks your work of art sucks, a family member who thinks “you should get a real job,” or a friend who thinks your idea “will never work,” you don’t cave to outside pressure.

Are you a creative person? Did you find yourself in this list? If so, please feel free to say hello in the comments.

7 Things to Avoid Saying

1. “I can’t…”

“Can’t” is a debilitating word that puts up a barrier between you and your goals—it’s like you’ve almost failed before you’ve begun. Someone very wise once said to me that there’s no such word as “can’t”. That’s a great way to look at things; give yourself a chance for success by ditching the word completely.

2. “I’ll try”

Have you ever “tried” to stand up. Try it now. Try to stand up. Did you do it? No, because it’s not possible to “try” and do something. When we say “I’ll try”, what we’re really saying is that we’re not ready to commit. As Yoda from Star Wars once said: “Do or do not. There is no try.”

3. “I wish I didn’t have to…”

Otherwise known as moaning. No one likes to listen to someone groan on, and plus, it’s pointless to do so. If you don’t like something, then take action and change your situation. Otherwise, you might as well get on with life with a smile on your face!

4. “I should…”

The word “should” is inherently negative. “Should” implies a lose: lose situation and it’s just not conducive to positive outcomes in life. It’s a form of criticism, and it’s best left out of your everyday language. Instead of beating yourself up for what you should have done, focus on what you have the power to change.

5. “I need…”

How often do you proclaim a “need” for something, versus how often you genuinely need it? The word “need” creates an unhealthy dependency. The next time you hear yourself say this, have a re-think to determine if you really need what you’re talking about. If you don’t, then let go and minimize any negativity.

6. Pessimistic greetings like “Not bad” or “could be worse.”

I hear this all the time! So many people feel the need to buy into these common phrases without even thinking about what they are saying. They are so negative! Why not say something positive, or at least be honest? (There’s nothing worse than saying you’re “great” all the time if that’s not how you really feel.)

7. “Never.”

The word “never” creates immediate restrictions on your life, and when we say that word, it’s very rarely an accurate reflection of the choices that are available to us. It closes our mind to solutions and creates unnecessary limits. Decide today to never say never again!

7 Things to Start Saying

1. “YES!”

Entrepreneur Richard Branson claims that making a conscious decision to say “yes” to more things is one of his secrets for success. Next time your natural instinct is to say no, try saying yes instead. Open your mind to a whole new world of possibilities and watch as your life suddenly becomes much more interesting.

2. “I’m lucky / grateful…”

It’s been proven that gratitude can relieve symptoms of depression and unhappiness. Before I go to sleep, I like to remind myself of 3 things each day that I’m grateful for, or lucky to have in my life. This is a nice way to go to bed with positive thoughts instead of being kept awake by worries or fears.

3. “I Will.”

This is a great replacement for “I’ll try”. Consider for a moment how much more powerful the words “I will” are, compared to “I’ll try”. By saying “I will”, you’re really committing to something and your goals suddenly feel possible. Don’t worry too much about whether you actually reach the goals or not—this is about you setting yourself up for success, not failure.

4. “What if?”

This is a great alternative to words like “never” or “impossible”. Instead of limiting us, the phrase “what if?” creates possibility. It encourages solution-oriented thinking, which helps us to solve problems. The next time you feel as though a situation is hopeless, try asking yourself “what if?” and see what solutions pop up.

5. Positive Greetings such as “I’m well.”

Instead of saying “not bad” or “could be worse” when someone asks you how you are, try a simple “I’m well, thankyou” instead. Alternately, if you’re not having a great day, be honest but with a positive spin—“I’m not having the best day but I’m sure tomorrow will be better.”

6. Positive instructions such as “Remember to…”

If I said to you “Don’t think about a pink elephant” right now what did you just think of? A pink elephant, right? So we’re actually thinking about the very thing we want to avoid. This can be really dangerous when we use instructions such as “don’t forget to pay the bills today” because all our brain hears is “forget to pay the bills!” If we flip our language so it’s positive, however, we get much better results. If you want to remember something, then tell yourself just that, instead of what you don’t want to do.

7. “Things could be worse…”

The next time you find yourself in a challenging situation, try re-framing your problem by comparing it to something worse. This is a great way to minimise the size of your problems. When we put things into context, we can gain perspective and suddenly our problems don’t feel as bad.
