Happy International Women’s Day!; I Ramble: 8 March 2022

In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.

Happy International Women’s Day!

Unfortunately, I did not prepare anything to commemorate the occasion. All I did was to celebrate myself by enjoying my time off from work.

Mindless gaming, no need to prepare meals, and lots of kisses from le husband. It is grand enough for me. I am happy.

What about your day? Did you tell a woman how much you appreciate her? If you are a woman, did you tell yourself how much you appreciate yourself?

I realise that maybe the problem I have at work is that not only did I feel unappreciated but I also felt disrespected at a certain level.

So I figured why stay at a place where people are absolutely clueless about how much more talented I am compared to the rest.

Blowing my own horn, but I have finally come to realise how much potential I have that is wasted. Sometimes it does take a while for you to notice what others have from the very beginning. It applies to both positive and negative aspects of you. If people do care about you, they will point it out to you. That much, I have learnt.

Same goes to me, where I do not care deeply enough to tell off people who label others at work. I just much rather remove myself from such a cruel environment.

I think I am a coward. Yes, I definitely am because I do not have the balls to people off. Until I have mustered up that courage, only then would I be able to be a more blunt and direct person.

At the same time, maybe I am not a coward but I just hate conflicts and aggression.

Whichever it is, I can only do what I can. So I made my decision based on what I think I can do.

I hope I can gain that courage to tell people off. If I were to pride myself in being a leader, I might have to do just that.

Anyway, enough with fooling around for the day. I already have work lined up for me tomorrow.

I think I will have to start working hard this Sunday.

Le husband has just tracked the source of weevils that have infested our home and destroyed it. I really want to get working on home improvement already.

For now, I gotta catch me some Zs and go for that 5am wakeup despite not being able to pray. #63months
