Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

My fingers are very itchy, asking me to write something today. When it comes to blogging/writing, you will never know when the ideas will come. So, when there are a lot of ideas lingering around my head, I better jot it down. Since it is school's holidays, I do have a bit of free time. Free from teaching, however not free from the tons of school's work. Apart from that, my sister's wedding is coming up soon. Eventhough it will be a small wedding, there are still some works that need to be done. Stress makcik! 

Okay, okay, take a deep breath. Phewww. Hembus lapan kali :p

Okay, talking about ideas just now,  I was thinking to do a few things this year. Last  year, I was doing some translation job for I-Yuno Sdn Bhd. The contract stated for 2 years but somehow after I took a long break for Hari Raya, they stopped sending me emails. But it's alright, I'm still thankful because they gave me an opportunity to get some experiences working as a freelancer. It was actually my first real freelancing work! Give yourself a pat on the shoulder, Rabia. Masuk bakul angkat sendiri nampak :D I haven't email them anything yet but I think I will send them one soon. Ceh, nampak tak kepoyoan itu.

So, for this year, I have apply for a short course under KPM. If I have been successfully selected, I have to take some few days off from school. I'm not sure the school will give me permission to go but I'm pretty sure that they won't be happy with it.

Other than that, I plan to further my study. Maybe apply for HLP? Yes, I know it's difficult to get a scholarship but I have to apply first and then from there see how it goes. If it is not succeed, then I have to look for other alternatives. I don't think I want to apply for study loan because I'm still paying for my degree loan. Tak nak la tambah hutang. Penat nak membayar nanti. Kat mana-mana pak Arab yang kaya raya itu, tolonglah sedekah sikit kat sini, boleh? 

This year, In shaa Allah, my friend and I are planning to run a business together. Biz kecil - kecilan. What kind of business? Biarlah rahsia dulu. Still under planning. Hopefully jadilah. Aameen. Nanti dah jadi, saya beritahu yer. Sokonglah business tempatan dengan menyokong kami! Eceh, belum apa-apa dah semangat. 

Besides that, I also plan to sell some of my second hand and used items. I have a lot of things that are still in good condition and they keep piling up in our extra room. Some of them are still in boxes. I don't know when exactly that I want to arrange them all. The process of taking pictures, uploading, promoting and selling them all will surely take some of my time. And I never seem to have enough time to do all of the things I have to do now. Okay, hold on, hold on. I think I am worrying too much now. Let's throw this negative thinking away. Syuhhhh, go away your stupid negative thinking! 

Now, my last planning. Drum roll, please. Hikhikhikhikhik. Nak tulis pun malu. Gapo dia? Habaq mai cepat! Well, this is just a thought. Jangan kecam saya yer. Do you think that I'm capable of being a novelist? A writer? An author? Teringin nak tulis buku. Angan - angan, bila boleh jadi kenyataan?

p/s : Poyo betul minah ni :p

Sorry my dear blog. I have been busy with tons of works. From the chaotic of new format of UPSR to becoming trainers for storytelling and school's chess team, life is still pretty beautiful; there are a lot of things that I would be grateful and thankful for.

Alhamdulillah, Adam is now 2 years old cheeky little boy. He always up to something. Either playing with his toys or climbing to his small table or stairs. Shouting and screaming at Mama is his another favourite thing. Suka kacau budak kecik ni sampai dia naik geram. =D

Alhamdulillah, hubby is now working at new place (with better salary, of course). Hope he's happy with his new working environment. I'm actually waiting for his first bonus! Ngeh, ngeh ngeh ; D

Alhamdulillah, eventhough the workload at school are sometimes seems unbearable, I have a good team to work with. Despite of everything that have been going on, everyone is still working very hard.

"Allah humma innii a’uu zubika minal hammi wal hazan, wa a’uu zubika minal ’ajzi wal kasal,wa a’uu zubika minal jubni wal bukhl, wa a’uu zu bika min ghalabatid daini wa qoh rir rijaal."

Ya Allah, aku berlindung kepada-Mu daripada perasaan risau dan sedih, aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari sifat lemah dan malas, aku berlindung kepada-Mu daripada sifat takut dan lokek, aku berlindung kepada-Mu daripada tekanan hutang dan kezaliman manusia.”
(HR Abu Dawud)


Signing off. See you again, my dear blog (whenever I have free time to write).
