Follow-up 1

  1. To be more unruffled, less agitated at things when they’re not as I expected or at my pace.
  2. To have the presence of mind more than yesteryear
  3. To treat people right. Sometimes, it comes from the above resolutions.

I think I failed miserably to keep up with my resolution 1 & 3.

I’ve been very agitated with my friend thru IM, and it showed. She asked a lot of good intended questions. But, I’m the kinda person that doesn’t want to answer a lot of questions about things. Sometimes, I really acted on it to show that I don’t like it. I don’t know if she didn’t get the message or she just ignored it on the account of liking me. She doesn’t deserve the way I responded to questions lately. I shouldn’t have done it.

.. be more .. considerate and cool and calm!!

Plus .. I’m feeling that I still AM the same stupid-dragging-my-feet person. need to work on this too.

So .. rebuild it

Love this dialogue.  It seemed like I watch this recent episode of Gossip Girl at the right time.

minute 3:12

Serena: Stay. Don’t let some stupid scandal make you run away like it did me. Like it does everyone in the world.

Blair: Everything’s horrible. My whole life’s falling apart.

S: So rebuild it. You are a Waldorf remember? People don’t tell you who you are. You tell them. Stay and fight. I’ll fight with you.

B:I’m so embarrassed. I’m sooo ..

S: So what? Start over. It can be done. I should know. We’ll get thru this together.

B: Promise?

S: Promise.

It’s really nice to have someone that’s there for you no matter how horrible you’ve been. And push you up from your low point of life.

I’m just wondering if I could be that nice to people around me and also give the love they deserve. I think I’m so horrible sometimes.

Consequences

Life is a series of consequences that follow a series of decision after decision.

And, I’m facing the consequences of my own actions.

Buy it .. and stuck with it.

Do not buy from Lenxxx unless you are sure that your computer system/laptop will show its problem if there is any within 21 days of SHIPPED date, otherwise, you’re screwed.

Tech support people are so great. But sale department and customer service people are suck big time. It should be named customer threatening department. They’re so NOT friendly, NOT helpful and NOT understanding. 😦

No replacement policy. Either return with 15% restocking fee[I don’t want to return .. I want a computer that doesn’t have problem within the first couple of weeks of use!!!!!!] or or stuck with the system if they can’t find out what the problem is. [hopefully they can find it out.] Or .. return and good luck with ordering a new system at whatever price at that time.

I guess this is why some people prefer buying the computer from big stores near home so that they can get it in and get feedback right away. Either return or replace it.

I’m not mad anymore I guess .. I’m just upset [is it different?] and think it’s a very bad experience. I won’t buy from them again, especially if I can’t get NICE customer service representatives. And, I didn’t talk to just one or two reps. It’s not like they computers are cheapo than their rivals. If that is the case, I might have felt better than this because you know .. a trade off .. paying less, a little rough customer support.

Oh .. and I got transfered to a few different departments ..and they don’t know how other departments work. i.e. customer service can’t tell the very least what the time frame of tech support repairmen is, and won’t transfer customer’s call. Sale don’t know how return department works.

I’m so used to calling one person in customer service and they can take care of it for me right there and then. Am I too spoiled by good customer services from all other companies?

BTW, I gave in .. wait to see if tech support can get the machine back to me on Next Friday as promised [scheduled to be pickup on Monday].

New Year Resolution

At first I thought I’d let the last entry be my year end summary/new year resolution. However, I think it might be better to put things into word in bullet points so that I could constantly remind myself about it.

    1. To be more unruffled, less agitated at things when they’re not as I expected or at my pace.
    2. To have the presence of mind more than yesteryear.
    3. To treat people right. Sometimes, it comes from the above resolutions.
    4. Learn a new language or brush up my Chinese.
    5. Learn about investment so that I could make sound financial plan.
    6. Take care of myself, both emotion, and appearances.
    7. Do at least one good thing each month for people in need/less fortunate.
    8. To stop making excuses for my actions OR things I don’t do. What good is good, what bad is bad. When you fail to do something OR do something bad, sometimes the reason is so simple i.e. being ignorant not thinking well enough.

      Hope I could do at least half of the list if not all. 🙂
