Hello everyone. I apologize for the hiatus. There’s been a lot going on the past few weeks, so much so that I couldn’t find the time to blog. Well, honestly, I was lazy to log on to my MacBook too hehe. Anyway, I couldn’t find anything interesting enough to write a blog post on a daily basis, but in the recent weeks, I’ve come to realise that there’s more to life that I could write about. To start things off, let me share a few of the many things that happened to me/went through my mind. Firstly, I am unable to cope with the society that I’m living in right now. Frankly speaking, I’m not sure how many of you would agree with me that our society is kind of off balanced i.e. crazy. Why do I say this? Because I feel that we tend to judge others based on our own values and upbringing. Ethnocentrism. That’s what I’m talking about – measuring what others do/say or think relative to their own culture or ethnic group. Take for example, I’m currently doing a temporary assignment at a particular community centre ABC. My superiors (or those working full-time) love to make me do all the brainless work such as removing old sticky labels from files and throwing rubbish out. Just because I’m a temporary staff does not mean I ought to do all these things because it’s not in my job scope. People tend to think that temporary staff are a type of lowly people who should be given brainless tasks. So what if I’m a temporary staff? Does that mean I should be treated that way? I don’t think so. I was once a full-time staff just like them before I resigned to further my studies. So never ever judge a person by the label “temporary staff”. And never judge a person by the clothes he or she is wearing. This brings me to another issue I’ve been pondering over. Since I’m just a temporary staff, I am not required to wear a uniform (as required for those working full-time). Hence, when customers walk in and they see me in civilian clothes and my colleague in uniform, they immediately judge me as incompetent to work and would say that I’m new and have no idea what’s going on. Yes, I admit that I have a blur face but that does not mean I’m stupid and you can take advantage of me by saying mean things. You have no idea who I am and whether or not I used to work at a CC before, so quit judging me. And to those working full-time, never judge me as incompetent too. Never ever think that I can’t handle things properly.
Okay, I’m sorry this post turned out on a rough side for me to rant and vent my frustrations. I needed to release my anger because I just couldn’t accept the idea of how screwed up our society is. We are all different, and we have different skills. I may be good at something that you aren’t good at. We should put aside all our judgemental views and work together once and for all.
Never never never ever judge someone because you will never know what that person has been through or is capable of doing.
