A holiday spent reading, playing Civilization IV, and watching newly bought DVDs. (Desperate Housewives second season, yay!!)

I also finally recognized that I am someone who is livelier when acting on whim (it tends to make me livelier), not on careful on long deliberation (it tends to make me lose focus). What I have been afraid all this time is the fact that when acting on whim, I tend to miss important facts, facts that are crucial for success. That’s why I have been resorting on long deliberations, which in the end is not succesful either.

Perhaps I am a victim of Attention Deficit Disorder, there are so many in the symptoms list that are applicable to me, especially dominant the lack of focus, great start but poor ending, disorganized life, and easily bored.
And it seems curing ADD needs some medications, not just some psychological adjustments. But the good thing is:

Six months to a year of counseling is often needed to work through most problems. For those with ADHD this can be faster. After dealing with an issue, people with ADHD are generally ready to move on. We tend not to dwell on the past; to not be reflective. You should feel that going to the therapist is helping you and that you are improving. Watch out for therapists who want to continue therapy when you feel ready to end it. They may need to “help” you more than you need to be helped.

Many don’t require intensive long-term therapy to get their lives on track and to improve their self-esteem and confidence if they don’t have a lot of lifetime baggage that needs to be worked through. Often, medication, learning about what ADHD is and is not, putting good coping skills in place, exercising regularly and taking good care of themselves, along with belonging to an ADHD support group, even via the computer, are enough. Sometimes, instead of therapy, adults with ADHD only need “coaching.” They benefit by having someone who regularly checks in with them to see how things are going; someone who helps the adult with ADHD develop and carry out strategies that will work for him in achieving his goals.

Well, like so many problems in my live: once recognized, I’ll hunt relentlessly to solve it myself. This one is no exception.

I really wish to end my procrastinating and poor ending habits. They are not good traits for someone who bends on dominating the world….

Had a long meeting combined with long meeting, so that there’s not much I can do about my work. Decided to go to a siemens customer center nearby, but canceled it after no one received my call when I contact them.

Finished one art that can be found at my STRIVESTUDIO

Continued my diet, and somehow I am losing my wild erotic desires that way. I guess those desires are fueled by excess of energies, eh? Should have known that.

Finished reading Sword of Shannara (a monster of a novel), and finally found out why this one is a legend. It is a great novel with so many plots and climaxes of personal battles and all out colossal war. And yet it teaches us something: for a problem so large, often the solution is a simple and very much overlooked thing.

I finally wrote one more philosophical entry, one which I have been looking to write for about 3 months now, but have to go through my own personal ups and downs first before grasping the mood to write it. Look for “Weapon to end all Weapons – Part 1” article. It should be above this post.

I am currently reading “The Elfstones of Shannara”, the next book in the “Shannara” series. So far it’s good, and it takes a somewhat different angles than “Sword”.

Had a basic firefighting techniques course. The trainer first presented the slides which informed the ignorants on what is fire, what is a “Triangle of Fire”, types of fire, and how to avoid and conquer fire. Afterward, the trainer taught us how to use wet sacks and fire extinguishers to put out a small, controlled fire, and we have to try extinguishing them ourselves.

The basic of firefighting is simple: fire is present only if there are 3 elements come into contacts: heat, fuel, and oksigen. remove one, and the fire will cease to be. It is then simply the matter of identifying the source of the heat, the forms of fuel, and the source of oksigens and then seperate them together, right? Nooooooooooo! The matter is more complicated than that. But I won’t go far, as you can find more of fire and fire extinguishing on your own.

What I can tell you is the fact that I was very excited about the whole firefighting business. It was a new and exotic thing for me, and as for dozen others new and exotic thing, it’s an intriguing thing. It is so intriguing that as I was walking home, I decided to take up the role of the office Fire Warden as soon as the position is open. It’s not day to day work, but to it sounds exciting now.

There are some photos taken by yours truly during the training sessions displayed on STRIVESTUDIO. Check them out to get a grasp on how the heat of the training went 🙂

Well..nothing big happens, although I’d love to say that I was fresher than usual days, and my physical exercises have gone uprated and my strict diet has been going well without me have to suffer a lot.

He he, actually something big did happened. I am in the process of purchasing something very big, something that has been a dream for about 8 years now. What it is? I can’t tell you, because I am a paranoid and worry that you’ll steal the idea from me 😉

It is very expensive, but It will last for years to come!!

Looking forward for a firefighting course session today, every employees who are often deployed for field duties must know how to fight fire. Perhaps there will be nice photos coming out of this course. Stay tune on my STRIVESTUDIO to see if there is a new photo or not on the sidebar gallery.

See you later.

And oh yeah, if you are interested in online investments, read this trick, it is simple and very much automatic, found by yours truly!!

More rain came to Jakarta, and every media is flooded with news of flooding. It is quite a shame, considering that everyone knows exactly why the flood comes, but no one, especially the government, no anything concret about it.

Everyone knows that illegal loggings are running rampants, perhaps the victims of the flood and avalanche themselves are illegal loggers, yet the local authorities seems to turn a blind eye on them. It seems money that floods in from Malaysia and China is enough for them to sacrifice their own peope’s lives.

It will be like that, if the authorities are the extension of the ruling parties, and the ruling parties themselves are the extensions of greedy businessmen, businessmen who know nothing about empathies and think more about their own wealths. Rules are made to accomodate the capital owners, not the people, who are counted only as another resource and not counted as souls similar to them.

For the people, instant, uneducational, and public-relation-stinks “compensations” are made, without thinking about the root of the cause itself: corruptions.

That’s enough for me, for longer entry on this topic, stay tuned tomorrow.

Huaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! Bored.
The sky has been a leaden dome, with thick clouds and pale sun all over, making my days gloomier. Not only that, it seems that I have been very boooooored with my life here: doing seven to four without clear aims and only the MP3 player to reduce my loneliness.

Anyway, now that it seems I have enought sleep, my mind is somewhat clearer and my energy has returned (albeit not as fiery as before, I have found a way to keep it in check), I think it’s time for some philosophical/conspiracy thoughts (those who has been following this blog for long know that I am sometimes a downright hermit). I now have several topics, and as it used to be, I’ll write them in the weekends.

This week, it will be about another conspiracy theory. Stay tuned.
