What’s Bugging You?

http://tape.noktahhitam.com/songs/Amos_Lee_-_Colors.mp3

Your mama called she said that you’re down stairs crying
Feeling like such a mess
Yeah I hear you you’re in the background bawling
What happened to your sweet summertime dress

There are times you’re on the verge of hypertension, pulling your hair wouldn’t do much justice. There are times you want reach out, but you’re afraid to bring them down along. And sometimes you just want to be left alone.

I don’t know what’s up, but everyone seems like they’re in a slump, including me.

Now everyone thought a dark, cynical, wicked and carefree NH wouldn’t make this an issue. Sadly, I’m a mortal although I repeatedly tell people I’M PURE AWESOME.

You have to admit, sweeping feelings under the rug doesn’t solve anything. It’s highly likely for you to explode one day. When that day arrives, you will no longer be able to hold your punches, including to your loved ones. What a sad sight.

My advise.

  • Channel it to sports. For health longevity and stress management.

I jog to release the steam packed in my head. Letting it go slowly as I widen my stride.ย  Occasionally I sprint and later found myself flat on the tarmac facing the dog-shaped clouds saying, “Ok, that was stupid! But sure is fun

  • Talk to a complete stranger and make new friends.

They don’t know you, so it’s less likely they’ll judge you or use it against you. Sometimes they can give views beyond your logic. And in the long run, you might make new friends. Just don’t jump to that grinning old man who’s happily staring at your fun bags.

The Don’ts.

  • Don’t sit in your room watching Korean drama for 17 hours straight. Or bury your face in your manga collection. It’ll hurt your eyes.
  • Don’t mull over your work or studies. You can never get rid of emotion with a layer of intellectual.
  • Don’t laugh over it. Your emotion is your ego, handle them with care.
  • Don’t start munching. Typical relief. Once you’re back to being you, you noticed you’re fat. When that day comes, don’t you dare complain about your flappy bat wings. You are what you eat.
  • Don’t talk to close friends. They’ll probably ridiculed you or tell you get over it, worst start bitching so they can shoo you and your problems away.

If else fail, just shut up and get back to workย ย  ๐Ÿ˜›

ps: I don’t recommend the last step, unless you’re used to it.

pss: Listen to that Music! Introduced by SS, soundtrack of House.

psss: This post is not dedicated to anyone, so don’t blush.

pssss: I got an offer from Silicon Valley. Sent a careful rejection letter.

  1. Hey NH! First of all, nice song ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like it when people plug songs occasionally in their entries because sometimes I’ll just go crazy over it and have it stuck in my head (yay, free cranial jukebox!) ๐Ÿ˜€

    I would go for a jog or a swim to vent off that extra anger but since I’m a rather introverted person, it scares me when I talk to strangers ๐Ÿ˜› and I guess whining to a stranger will scare them away too… it depends on their personality as well.

    I wouldn’t watch dramas for that long because my neck will hurt! I’ve got this lower back problem and I couldn’t sit for too long. Lying on the bed to watch makes things worse because I’ll wake up having a nasty neck ache ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Usually when I’m sad I’ll prefer to be alone. I’ll refrain to talk to my close friends because I don’t think I deserve their attention and I don’t want to let them feel my inner pain. I understand because even as a close friend, some people find whining untolerable ๐Ÿ˜

    I’m sure I’m not optimistic enough to laugh it off! Haha! I’ll probably mull over it for a few days or so and I’ll get better after a while.

  2. Somehow master, my life principle is try to live on your own. There’s no “if I’ll fail”. I can do it. I know I can. Oh well, maybe I’m just that egoist.

  3. Ah, my favorite commentator.

    Teddy, while I think it’s ok to sulk on emotions (alone), I do think it’s good if you could release some of that by telling others.

    The thing about stranger is, they dont know you. So they can’t judge you. E.g. you made someone pregnant. would you tell your friends or stranger? If you tell your friends, it’ll be his/her trump card, you know in case you dont want to do their lab work. If you tell a stranger, chances are, they’ll forget or file this under temp memory.

    *stranger in this context is like you and me. I don’t know your circle of friends or family, likewise.

  4. Sahabat? More like apostle. Thats a bit hard to find.

    Ala syam, between you and me, we’re still stranger. I dont judge you, you dont judge me, we live happily.

    Jap, we’re not strangers. HAHAHA. Acquaintance or friends maybe.

  5. LOL! Speaking of making someone pregnant, if that really happened one day I wouldn’t even tell my closest friend. They’ll most probably inform my parents on the basis of ‘oh, it’s all for your own good’ and my mom will slaughter me and I’ll be her bacon for breakfast tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    You reminded me of those anonymous chatrooms my friends used to go to. They just randomly speak to strangers… and can spend a whole night doing that. I didn’t understand why would they like to do that until your post came up and rang a bell in my head *ding dong!*

    What is keeping you awake at 4am in the morning? ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. It’s a 24 hour business ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Play hard, Work harder, Pleasure later. Until pleasure comes, I will work my wits out.

    ps: If your parents slaughter you, will it be halal? LoL

  7. Ooof! Sounds pretty harsh on your health. Don’t be a workaholic okay ๐Ÿ˜› be sure to know how to enjoy life, heh.

    I don’t think so. I’m a lazy pig ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. We pray 5 times a day, so, berdoa lah…and you could tell evrything to Him.read hadis yg menceritakan bgaimana nabi berdoa….nabi cerita semua masalah…sort of therapy, orang yg beragama lg cepat tenang…beragama meaning believe in god.

  9. does that works? i felt that i am falling apart nowadays.. nothing is what it seems anymore.. had try to push it under the carpet but it is still there.. too much into work until i’m so tired but still feeling sad…

  10. i once read in a book that says, boys usually will cave-in whenever they hv problems, they dont share it with people dear to their hearts. It doesnt mean they didnt trust or love u, its just the hormones in them. Same goes to me tho i dont hv the Y-gene, maybe i hv some hormonal imbalance s’where kut โ— .

    But i guess, the ego in us force us to have some quiet time alone. Its not that we dont share, but certain things are too private to tell others even our bff. ๐Ÿ˜

    Sila jgn fikir bahawa semua kaum Hawa ni share problems dgn shbt2 kwn2 rapat. There’s always an exception. ๐Ÿ™‚
