Happy CNY! (Glad the Horse is leaving)

Happy Lunar New Year to my fellow asians!

I’m actually home early this year. Most years, my cousins and I would be at Box Hill Festival waiting for the midnight countdown or in the later years, we’ve been at the Vietnamese temple waiting for the countdown.

This year, it was different. I guess old age and because Lunar New Year is smack in the middle of the week, so people gotta work (except me).

I did spend some time with my family though, just having a chat over some cake.

The Year of the Horse was a crap year!

Case Study Preparations for Consulting Jobs

So it’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post. Where was I? I think the question should be, “where were you MENTALLY in the last few weeks?”

Truth, my mind was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I was boggled down on that depression, I was bitching to the universe every morning about all aspects of life and just generally feeling like shit. Bitter, nasty and depressed shit.

So last week, I gave myself a challenge. I was not allowed to wake up and bitch and whine until I had breakfast. I don’t know about you, but when my body goes into starving mode, I think the stresses, the anxieties and everything amp up – because my body is also feeling stressed, “OMG, we don’t have fuel, we’re going to die”. Hence the same theory of why people say you shouldn’t starve yourself when on a diet because your body will restore more fats.

Anyway, moving on, I actually did start to feel better. I actually didn’t end up bitching and whining any more and generally felt better.

I don’t know what happened.. by Friday, I started to research on YouTube, “Stragey Consulting, Strategy planning process” and from that I ended up watching “Case Interviews, Case Study tips for McKinsey, BCG and Bain”. I clicked watch anyway. (more…)
