::Once Upon A Time-OUT!::


In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends.

::Confessions of a Lazy Blogger::

When I first started blogging a few years ago, I went through a series of stages that most authors can appreciate.

Wow, I’m online!
Ok, now what do I say regularly?
This is really easy!
People are actually reading me?
Better check my stats…
Better recheck my stats…
And so it goes. In those early days life was simple and something like blog stats meant a lot to me. I joined a few networks and saw the others as competition.

But, as with many things in life, I just got lazy and didn’t really care about so many of those things. Checking my stats became an afterthought. RSS subscribers- if folks showed up, cool. If not, my quality of life was really not affected all that much. I even tried an experiment when I went on vacation. I watched my traffic while not posting for a week. Guess what? They were nearly identical to when I was posting like a maniac. I realized that my small fish of a blog was in a very big pond. A humble truth was once again realized.
So what’s my outlook today? I blog because I can. I have something very unique to discuss with readers- the spirituality of er..mmm... of anything lol. Very few other folks are talking about it so I know that I’m filling a void.

::“Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome”. ::

Ever since in college, I’ve had a bad sleep problem.

No matter how little sleep I get the entire week, no matter how much I avoid caffeine, no matter how much exercise I do…I am wide awake in the middle of the night doing my best work! Often my most productive hours are between midnight and 2 or 3AM, even if I've gotten only a few hours sleep the night before and been up for 18 hours.

It’s truly a bizarre pattern of dead tired mornings, walking around like a jet-lagged zombie, followed by a tortuous afternoon in desperate need of a nap, and finally an evening where I start to wake up.
“What could be wrong with me?” I wondered for years. Surely this was not a normal way to live!
As it turns out, I’m not alone with this small problem. Like others, I eventually managed to deal with it. But it always bothered me because everyone I met didn’t seem to understand my problem.
I tried every piece of advice that I heard: “Read before bed”, “Drink a glass of warm milk”, “No caffeine after noon”, but it didn’t seem to work. Even if I forced myself to get in bed at a reasonable hour, sure enough, I would toss and turn until 3AM before finally falling asleep.(Or... not to sleep!) Sounds like something called “Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome”.er.. yeahh

Each morning i want to sleep in a bit later, and each night i want to stay up a bit later. The world is moving too fast for your biological clock, so you are always a bit behind! Certain wave lengths of light seem to work better than others.

Thinking back to the caveman days, life was very simple getting plenty of sunlight during the day and it being pitch black at night. Our brains evolved to operated on this schedule over millions of years, but with today’s society full of artificial lights and plenty of activities to stay up for, some of our brains (mine included) have gotten confused.

::Roll Out::And Squeeze::

Ok. Sekarang dah pukul 4:47 pagi dan telah masuk hari Selasa. Aktiviti harian dalam bilik ? Tengok Bourne Ultimatum, pastu siaran ulangan Manchester United dimalukan oleh Manchester City sebanyak 6 biji gol. Memang bagus sangat disebabkan aku ni bukanlah peminat tegar ManU. hahahah

Sebenarnya aku tertido pukul 8 tadi tapi terjaga sebab aku tahu aku tengah menunggu sesuatu. Celik mata pon dah tengok tv yang tengah siarkan perlawanan ManU, ushar YM aku... damn... ada orang buzz rupanya tapi tak berbalas-balas sebab aku dah kecut atas toto aku, didepan monitor dan ni rasanya tanda yang kurang baik. Terua aku bangun cuci muka, gosok gigi dan terus ke dapur. Tengok jam dah pukul 11 lebih. Ada dalam 2, 3 jam jugak aku terlelap.
Aku berjaga dari tadi sebenarnya memang mengharapkan sesuatu keajaiban pon tapi tak tahu la nasib ni masih menyebelahi aku ke tak. Takde benda menarik pon kat tv pada waktu macam ni. Pagi-pagi buta takkan aku nak mengharapkan movie yang best lak kan. Banyak talk show, drama melayu yang er... aku tak mau sebut. Bukan aku tak sokong industri filem orang melayu tapi semua drama mendatar dan aku memang tak suka tengok. Tak pasal bercinta, cinta ada masalah, masalah orang tua (memang kat malaysia realiti gitu ke?), kawan baik khianat dan sebagainya. Realiti dan diadaptasi ke drama. Betol ke?

Tengah countdown sekarang ni. Menghitung hari sampai bila aku boleh terus online, boleh terus blogging dan boleh terus mencari sesuap ilmu dalam alam siber ni. Satu benda yang aku suka bila nak menjelang subuh ni ialah perut aku akan terasa lapar, otak aku duk suruh kuar pegi restoran mamak Sayed. Keenakan kuah dal dan sambal serta roti canai yang ditebar tipis tipis, nyum... boleh buatkan perut aku memainkan lagu Coco Jumbo dari band Mr President.

Tetiba ada ilham datang...oit cik Ilham... wehhh sini la..
