Online rantings aren't safe. I know that. However, with a nick like mine, I think nobody would even bother to find out who I am. And I don't like to talk about political, religious or other sensitive issues. So I have nothing to be scared of, right?

Self Promotion

I just finished a few columns in the nomination form and it is such a chore. This is something I would never want to do again. I have still got five more columns to write and I do not feel like writing it at all. Now, I wonder if I should do the results analysis which is an extremely painful exercise which does not yield any positive outcome. But if I have to do it, I will rather do it now than later. But I am also worried that nobody will check on this useless document. Maybe I should just update the result and leave the others alone?

Relief

If there is anything that I learnt from this experience, it is to not take so much time to mull over decisions. A case in point is the employment of a relief staff. We lose her because we took too long to decide and she probably lose her patience. When she is able to find another one, she jump into the opportunity. I cannot promise the next one would not be calculative or willing to do so much. And this point, I will really need to get to the SLs.

Payday

I was so occupied with work that I forgot about the payday. I am currently looking forward to the December fall where I would have slightly more money. I think I am now quite drawn to all these monetary gains as I cannot wait to be a freelancer or to live on whatever money I have without worrying about me being a burden.

One week holiday

Finally, we have a short break. But it would be even more hectic when work starts again. I especially dislike the ranking this year. I never really liked it but it just got worse as the years went by. I also realised that I should not have put myself in a situation where I had to mark so many scripts for the end of year. That's no public holiday unlike the mid year. I hope I would be able to cope with it. And I had to show them the result entry analysis. Seriously, I think post-mortem like this is useless. We should look at the new batch and see how we can effect changes.

    Investing

    Have paid the 20% downpayment, stamp duty and all the miscellaneous fees. I am now the proud co-owner of the property. I hope that it will eventually bring me some extra cash. I still have every wish to own the current flat. If I should not have any descendants, then it would go to my next-of-kin after my death. Recently, I read the news of the kind couple who donated $6 million dollars. I am truly inspired by them. Let's see how things pan out.

    Un-Holiday Like

    This year, I decided not to go anywhere again, thus saving more money for investments and retirement. Now, with a property that I need to pay, it is more important for me to keep myself employed. I cannot believe that I still have at least another 29 more years to go before I can even think of the big R. I also hoped that SLS would remember to pay me monthly. I am always fearful of her cos she always has her ways in trying to get me participating in things that I originally have no plans of. I even wondered if I should really buy a property and rent it out to earn some money in future?

    Investment

    I am not sure what went wrong with me? I actually agreed to be the co-owner of a condo with a friend. I hope it would bring me more money. I am now going to be very poor now, especially in my CPF.

    New-born

    I have become an uncle again, but this time to the niece of my own brother. Good to have a new born to play with, but I wonder if I will want to have one of my own? For one, it is too much a responsibility. And next, I am not not too good with multi-tasking. I believe it will agitate me quite a fair bit if I have competing demands. I am already feeling quite apprehensive about showcasing my 4E class. They are by no means bad, just that they cannot be engaged at the same level. I hope this year passes quickly and I can get my Connect Plan payout. At my age, I desire money so that I can retire to do what I want in future, as quickly as possible.

    In Green

    I have never enjoyed reservist training. It is still the same now. However, it has become a little easier, now that I have moved to another branch. I just hope that everything would just move smoothly and I can do some real work during this period including planning lessons and setting papers.
