0169 – What I am Thinking

My friend said he can read what other people are thinking quite easily, but he can’t read me. Hah.

Well I don’t know why. Maybe because I’ve been hiding lots of stuff for a long time so I’m really good at it. Or maybe it’s because I have a lot of stuff going on in my mind so it’s difficult to really see what I’m thinking. Or maybe, it’s because I’m actually confused about what I’m thinking myself, so it’s impossible for others to know what I’m thinking.

Whatever it is, many people’ve tried to read me because I barely reveal anything about myself that’s of personal nature. I don’t know why. Maybe I don’t trust people enough.

—————————————————————

I’ve just thought of something. If this is a really free country, why must I wear dress shoes to work? Why must I wear sneakers when meeting adults? Why can’t I wear flip flops all the time? Why must the media stereotype? Why are there so many societal expectations?

—————————————————————

Walking in sandals, carrying a sling bag on my shoulder, a shoe bag in one hand and something else in the other, I feel like a Singapore boy. I don’t know why, but I do. This makes me miss Singapore (and my friends) very very much.

    If you had a business position in Singapore, would you show up for a meeting in flip flops? Of course you wouldn’t. You have to dress as a professional. You would wear a suit and tie. There is a time and place for everything, including Singapore. Dressing nicely to meet someone is a show of respect. That’s not media expectations. That is social behavior thousands of years old.
    Save your flips flops for the beach or on campus, or with your friends.

      Don’t get me wrong. I love wearing blazers and dressing up formal, kinda makes people look good, but sometimes, say in school events, they seem very ‘forced’ you know? just a thought that just cropped up in my mind..

        I know you would 🙂
        Technically, I could wear shorts to work because I work away from the public. I would dress up though for a meeting. Actually, I love the atmosphere on campus. Very casual in dress. It’s strange, but I see so many students I’ve become friends with and then they move on and graduate and I stay behind to work with yet another group of students. That’s the way it is, working at a university. But I love my job and I do enjoy the “ivory tower” atmosphere of a university. No job quite like it.

        Yeah no job like working in a school/college I feel. Get to meet such a myriad of unique people all the time. It must be very inspiring and heartwarming to have your old old student/friend contact you after forever.
