MELL WRITES HERE
OK, so, short history of my short career-ish life.
3 jobs in 4 years. One in retail, one in education, and now, one in engineering.
Three different field, with three different needs and skill sets.
Chances are, you've been to so many seminars about jobs and your future career, and all that jazz. They're good to go do, and to take notes from. However, do remember that not everything they say is true, and not everything you listen to is the ideal step you should take.
Throughout three jobs, here's what I've learnt.
The first two words I generated in Programming class way back in my degree days in 2008.
Also, hello to you.
I intend for this blog to be like a professional tell-a-story of my so-called career/work life. We'll see how far I can stretch it.
If you've read other pages of my online portfolio, you may or may already have a sense of who or what I am. If you don't, then I suppose that's fine, too.
Just so you know, I love books. I buy them faster than I can read them, but I love them all. I also like music, and pairing books and music and blog posts together. But since I've done the music + blog post on my personal blog, I'll make this one a book + blog post.
If you're a reader, and feel like you'd like to recommend me a book to read, drop me a line. I read almost everything, but my favs are always fiction, biographies, psychology, and language. If you're not a reader, I'll (try to) recommend a book in each blog post, in case it piques your curiosity.
I'll try to post as often as I can.
Why this online portfolio, you may ask?
Initially, it was a mock page I set up during my teaching years at Curtin Sarawak, for EFPC (if you're reading this, and you're from Curtin, know that I miss that place. If you know me personally, drop me another line. I've been meaning to post up something about it on this blog for a while now but #procrastination happened). I ended up getting too much into it that I decided to set a real one for myself. I've been getting odd hits ever since, I'm not sure how people even end up here, though.
If you've reached the end of the post, thanks for reading my random rambles, and the need to express myself in words (because I'm an introvert and have minimal friends).
Book rec: The Art of Thinking Clearly, by Rolf Dobelli. This is one of my fav books ever, and one of the best I've read in my short life so far. A good book to read if you are trying to achieve self-actualisation.
