Another Evening Poem

At the corner there is she
A little girl with sad brown eyes
Yesterday she looked so happy
Today she's here with no smiles

I approach, ask her what's wrong
Something bad happened or someone hurt her
She says she doesn't know
Everything is all blur

Her world's been dark and doom
Captured in the moment of holplessness
No one can help her, she screams
She'd rather die with her somberness

You know, it's been gloomy,
shadowy, dimly lighted
She doesn't feel love or beloved
Her eyes temporarily have lost sights

She's reached out for a solution
And been crying miserably
Everyday is cloudy blue
She's sick and tired terribly

I pat her back and finally say
Seriously, I have been there before
When I wouldn't want to wake up
I couldn't ask for more

Take a very deep breath
And open your eyes
You see the world outside?
The color of the sky

Some questions don't have answers
Why do you waste your time?
Don't overlook what you have
Fortunately, you are always mine

Things regularly have two sides
Good or bad, black or white
It's your choice to take a look
To make wrong things right

We hug, cuddle and then kiss
Suddenly, she's yelling at my face
Don't you even know, huh?
You put me into this wreck!

Wednesday Evening Poem

When it’s cold, she’s sad
It’s warm out, she’s still sad
For her, the world is mad
I assure, life isn’t that bad

She nods but says, “sometimes it’s hard”
She adds, her life is tough
Things aren’t getting easy
Her long road is rough

She sobs,”I am deeply hurt
I can’t forget my past
Wonder when it all ends
How long it will last”

“Step back a bit”, say I
See how far you’ve gone through
See tasks you’ve accomplished
Many people aren’t strong as you

Again she nods
this time she agrees
She puts on her smiling face
And turn her sadness to joyful tears

This is it. This card is especially for you
I didn't have a second thought
Because I know you'd like it too

Unbelievably, another good year went by
Lots of things have changed
But you are always in my mind

Happy Birthday to my beloved baby
Wish you a prosperous year
To the guy who never thinks of the future
I bet it will be a tremendous cheer!

Friday night is no longer Ploy’s night. I’ve moved on. Oh well, it’s more like I have to move on.

There are two reasons I am willing to spend my $10.25on a movie ticket: firstly it’s got 6 stars (out of 6) from Time Out New York and secondly I need to get rid of Jake Gyllenhaal’s gay character from Brokeback Mountain. Actually, I would include the third reason which happens to be the director’s name I saw from imdb website. It’s David Fincher who also directed Panic Room (2002), Fight Club (1999), The Game (1997) and one of my favorite movies Se7en (1995).

Zodiac’s plot takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area almost 40 years ago. This serial-killer case officially remains unresolved. Written by cartoonist Robert Graysmith, the book is about his effort to solve the case and was turned into a movie. I really like the set of the scene especially in the San Francisco Chronicle newsroom. The scene closely resembles the real time when this case happened. There are no computers; only nice and antique typewriters. (How one could solve a crime without the help of computer and eletronic devices?) It reminds me of my grandfather’s old typewriter from which I started my typing skill. Everybody dresses, lives and drives in their late 1960s. Sitting there wondering what the movie is all about, I was suddenly thrilled by the opening and was kept thinking as a police who tried to solve this crime. For those of you who are a big fan of all Law and Order, you’ve got to see this suspense thriller. Like Se7en, the movie offers more and more evidence but doesn’t reveal the killer. That just made me goes crazy about finding the truth about the perpetrator.

Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. have done an excellent job of imitating a dedicated detective and a reporter respectively. Unfortunately, I do not quite like Jake’s acting. His role is to show that there’s more than one way to lose your life to a killer—like the movie’s tagline says. His acting isn't that convicing. Anyway, I’ll give him a break since he has done a very good job in Brokeback Mountain and plus he is Coldplay fan!

The following quote came from the review on;
Here's the best way I can convey how good it is. I'm seven and a half months pregnant. I did not go to the bathroom once, in the nearly three hours of running time.

Career Wisdom

I am despair verging on the job hunting. It's been 2 months now and I got nothing. I've had couple interviews but they are all turned me down. What did I do wrong?

For those of you who also face this problem, job hunting could take forever. I know of couple friends who took four or up to six months to get a job. Therefore, I shouldn't be giving up my hope yet and keep looking--like Johnny Walker keeps walking ;)

For those of you who think what the hack I am doing here. Am I wasting my time and talent on this stuff when I could be doing things that are so much more important? This Career Wisdom book have answered these questions.

NO, you are not wasting your time. Starting at the bottom has a purpose: to prepare you for the middle and, eventually, the top. This lead another question for me; is this what I want to do?

There are two inspiring quotes I got from the book;
Knowing others is wisdom; knowing yourself is enlightenment.

You can't possibly know what career is best for you if you do not first figure out what you want, what you are good at, what is important to you, and what makes you tick.

And a quote from my favorite poet, Friedrich Neitzsche;
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
