Just last Thursday, after watching The Hunger Games, I felt the urge to read up a little more about the plot on Wikipedia. I was a little confused at the end of the movie, something within me tells me that there must be more to the story portrayed in the movie. Reading the summary on Wiki, certain keywords such as ‘rebellion’ told me that I must read the book. So 9 days later, today, I have finished reading all 3 books in my very very free time.
It has to be an achievement for me, considering that it usually takes a month for me to finish a novel. I wonder if the rebellious self within me kept me going and hooked on the books, considering how the author has written to point that certain actions, though made innocently, can be viewed as rebellious actions against the authority that so created the laws/rules. Of course, being clamped and made slaves, a rebellion took place to overthrow the master. And what made the rebels ever more stronger is just a girl who has unknowingly become the face and voice for disobeying the master.
Guess it really just take one to ignite and make the fire burn stronger.
But it is just a novel anyway. Or is it true as well?
I am a reader who takes in the words and transform them into pictures in my head, a movie happening without the surround sound or the big screens. Having spent long hours reading and not knowing how quickly time has passed by, the movie continued into my dreams with me either being in the arena of the Hunger Games, or images of rebellion taking place around me. I do not know if this is a good or bad thing. Maybe it doesn’t matter. But I’ve truly enjoyed reading the novels. I do not regret spending my past days reading, considering that it must have been years since I last so enjoyed a novel.
So update to my job hunt…
I have two upcoming interviews next Tuesday with two different companies – both dealing with IT for supply chain management. I’m not so sure how prominent is one of the company, but the other is definitely well known in the industry. But after going for 2 career fairs this week, I wish my previous employer will contact me soon to get me for an interview – IT for healthcare industry. Even though it would just be an interview, I can’t help playing in my head, what should I do if both companies offer me positions?
Guess I should worry about how am I going to answer the questions that they will pose to me first than any other thing. Who knows, maybe one of them will reject me and my previous employer will never call me for an interview.
Time for guitar.
