Articles of Interest (or Horror)

Sometimes It Helps to just know that some one out there is experiencing the same kind of (at the lack of a better word) shit that life throws at you.

My dad is the breadwinner of the family, not a University graduate. In fact, he’s only got an O Level Certificate, which is the equivalent of a High School Diploma, I think. I’m thankful that he has luckily not been (ever) laid off by his company. So,  I can’t say that I understand what it must feel like to have one’s family struggle through a recession.

Reading the stories of these following individuals however, provide some interesting insight into what a person goes through when such things happen.

One day, when I enter the ‘working world’, this is what I may face too. I hope I’ll remember this article then.

In other news, it looks like Virginia Tech is yet again the setting for another tragedy.

Chinese student decapitated at Virginia Tech:

It’s so horrible, I don’t even know what to say about it. Especially since Chinese New Year is just round the corner. What a terrible way for their families to be spending it.

For the rest of us, Happy (early) Chinese New Year! And I’ll leave you with something a little more light-hearted and completely un-related to the above- my Outfit Obsession of the Day.
