Britney Made Out With Adam Lambert

Yo Bloggers..
First & foremost, please excuse the title. It has nothing to do with this post. This post is entirely about something else.

PEACE. *smiling widely*

So, if you are a loyal reader, you should know that I've promised to myself I would post an entry about my day every night before I sleep, right? 

The Devil : "Loyal reader huh? Do you even have one? I don't think people even care about this blog."

Stupid devil!

Well, anyway..
Apparently, I FAILED. I didn't post an entry last night. I was supposed to but I was very sleepy that I slept at, I don't know, 7 p.m, 8 p.m? It doesn't matter by the way, because I'm back! Haha!

Initially, I did not have anything to talk about. After taking my shower just now, suddenly a light bulb appeared above my head. Well, it actually happened during my shower session. So, I'd like to thank whatever there is in the cubicle where I had just took my shower just now for giving me the light bulb. Merci beaucoup. 

Anyway, merci beaucoup means thank you very much. Duh.

Well, have you ever encountered a situation where people told you different contradicting things that made your life, at that point, went haywire.


Then you're lucky. But..

Wait a minute. If you have never been in that situation, I bet you must be living in a cave or in a crystal ball where human presence is below 0. Still, you are lucky.

You might be bored because there is no one to talk to or to [CENSORED] with though.

Anyway, back to my question. Yes, I've been in that situation many many times.

For example :

Before you read the conversation, you need to have the background knowledge or schemata (I learnt this word from my methodology class) of what the dialog is about. Basically, the dialog is about me asking my friends about our allowance. 

The Devil : What allowance? You're a student. You don't deserve to be paid.

Stupid devil!

Well, let me tell you exactly what i am.
I'm an IPG student, meaning that I am PAID to study. It's like I'm working, only that I work as a student. I know might it sound like heaven but trust me, sometimes it's not. Well, it does feel really really good to get money like you have a job when you are actually still studying, not even working and I thank God for that. However, the problem is, we don't have any f****** idea WHEN exactly we will get our money. 

"You know, it's hard to plan when you don't know the details. In other words, it's not easy to plan how to use your money when you don't know when you'll get the reinforcement, I mean, money."  
(Fanzi, 2010)

Okay, now that you've required the background knowledge, let's move on to the conversation. 

Me : When will we get our allowance?
Smart-ass 1 : I don't know. *shrug*

Me : When will we get our allowance?
Smart-ass 2 : Mr [CENSORED] told me that it's coming out next week.
Me : Thank God. *face shimmers*

Me : I heard that our allowance is out next week.
Smart-ass 3 : Really? Mr [CENSORED] told me that it's next month.
Me : No way! From who did he get that info?
Smart-ass 3 : The office. The secretary told him that.

Me : Hey, when will we get our allowance? Mr [CENSORED] told me it's next month?
Smart-ass 2 : Next month? *phone rings* Hello, what's up? Bla.. Bla.. Bla.. *call ends* Dude, latest news, the allowance is out next semester. Confirmed!
Me : Whuuut?

And then after, like, 5 minutes, I got an SMS from Mr [CENSORED]. It says "We won't get our allowance this year. CONFIRMED!"  

And I was like "^$#^%#@!!&$*!$*$!^!@^%!^!#^%$&!!!!!!"

Now you see how irritating this thing is. Right? 
Just imagine, your friend tells you that you'll get your pay tomorrow. Upon hearing that, you rush to the shopping mall and burn every single paper that you have in your skinny wallet. Nothing worries you because you know you'll get your wage on the next day.

Suddenly, your boss calls and tells you that you will get your pay NEXT month.

Jeng! Jeng! Jeng!

How do you feel?

What would you do? 

I know right. It sucks. That's exactly what I meant when I said,
"It's hard to plan when you don't really know the details."

You could DIE of poverty and lack of nutritions.

Like these skeletons, I mean, skinny girls.

To make this whole scenario easier for some of us to understand, I did this. [SCROLL DOWN]

Get it? Get the connection?


Those pics don't really help, do they?

Fine, it's OK.

All that Britney stuff that they have put in the media sometimes make us think,

"What the hell is going on in her life? Is it true? How? When? Why?"

By the way, those above are not true facts about Britney. I just made it up, except for the last one - the shaved-her-head thingy, I mean, she did shave her head. And I put Britney's pics not because I hate her. In fact, I love her. I think she's beautiful.

My point here is, too many ideas or information which are not true and contradicting with each other really make my thoughts go haywire. In my case - the allowance thingy, I didn't know who to believe. And I'm sick and tired of waiting and hoping for it. Whenever people ask me about it, I just raise my shoulders. And whenever people come to me and say

"The allowance will be banked in tomorrow!"

I just look at them blankly and say "Okay, whatever. Enjoy your allowance." 

So, what have I learned?

01. Money is important.
02. Knowing how to manage money is even more important.
03. Don't just simply trust anyone or any other sources of information.
04. Be prepared for the worst.
05. Save money.

Your's truthfully,
