Adults = Mature?

I have a question for all here. Human tend to get mature through the growing process, but why it seems that the more mature(or should I use the word 'age') they are, the longer they hold their grudge on, and they tend to remember all the bad things about the person they hate and what they have done to them. Sometimes the grudge is carried over from one generation to the next(just like what happen in some of the TVB dramas).

But, look at the children, they get along again in a short time after they fight or quarrel. No matter how serious the problem is, they tend to be friend to each other again. The time needed to get along again becomes longer as we get older.

So, why is there such difference exist? Is it the difference in the problem that they face? Is it adults are more mature and children are more innocent? Is it because the adults know more about the reality? Is it because adults feel less secured?

It is so rare to hear that children fight each other until serious injuries. But what about adults? Hurting each other with things that are able to hurt. From sharp weapons up to military weapons. Fighting with each other just to satisfy their own desire(territory, fame, wealth, etc), causing problems to all in the end. Adults can be consider to be more educated(religion teaching, knowledge, moral and ethics) than children, so why all these happens? Corruptions, crimes, wars and more. Why is that the history keep on repeating the same thing over and over again? Don't they feel bored with the same thing that repeat for thousand years?

In this case, should we use the word 'childish' on adults and 'mature' on children?

Coincidence or Fate??

Here I would like to talk about the things that happened between me and my best friend, Stephen. There are quite many coincidence happened between us. The coincidences began since the first day of me entering MMU Malacca(February 2006). That time we were having Foundation course for one year(3 trimester) before we can proceed to our desired Degree course. The first coincidence was that we were assigned to the same orientation group. (My memories about the Orientation Week wasn't that clear.) Then I get to know that we lived in the same place, Emerald Park(sort of apartment for rent to MMU students), the same building and same block. I lived a floor higher than Stephen. One more coincidence is that both of us stayed in the first room of our respective unit(the room nearest to the main door of the unit). Both of us are IT students and there are some slight connection between our desired Degree course. (Mine is Software Engineering & Game Design while Stephen's is Software & Animation). Both of the courses are only available in MMU Cyberjaya.

The first class started the next day the Orientation Week ended. I attended my first class(Mathematics subject if not wrong). Someday during the first week, I get to know that we were in the same group section, PT40, which means we will meet each other until the end of the Foundation course. The first week ended. I bought bus ticket to go back to my hometown, Ayer Tawar(Perak). I reached Malacca Sentral. While waiting for the bus, i saw Stephen. He was also waiting for bus to go back to Ipoh(Perak). The bus we took is not the same but both of them departed at the same time, 9p.m.

The first trimester ends soon, we planned to move to the other block to stay with our friend(big brother), Siong. Our application approved. Second trimester, we stayed in our new room. Only two of us, although the room was supposed to be shared by three person. Third trimester, the room still shared by both of us. During the third trimester, we need to decide what Degree course to take as this trimester is the last trimester of the Foundation course. Most of our friends choose the course that they like since the beginning of the Foundation course. Me and Stephen also the same. Knowing that both of us would go to MMU Cyberjaya for our Degree course, we applied for hostel together. First trimester of Degree course, both of us managed to get place in the hostel, in the same room.

This is all that I'm able to remember for now. So, are these all just coincidences? Or fate? Or did I think too much? Anyway, what I'm clear about is that I will not meet Stephen if I didn't insist on going to MMU to study in the first place.

The Stupid Thing I Did Today

Eating mixed rice (pack from MMU hostel) as my lunch today while listening to Individual System by Tetra Fang. Maybe get too carried away by the song, so I start to juggle my pillow while chewing food in my mouth. Juggled, juggled and juggled. Juggled to hard, ending up landing my pillow on my mixed rice. The mixed rice bounced all over the place; my table, floor and also my bed. Even on my laptop. Luckily, I almost finished the mixed rice, if not, it will be a waste. Then I did all the cleaning stuff. T_T

February 2 Birthday Astrology

Aquarius born on February 2 have a modern outlook on life. They seem ageless, and their physical attractiveness testifies to their need to present themselves favorably. They are sticklers for honesty. They need to display their unconventional personality and embrace controversial issues.

Aquarius Information for February 2
You should embrace: Good choices, lost causes, quietude
You should avoid: Subjugation of goals, bad habits, loose talk

Friends and Lovers
Building close friendships isn't easy for people born on February 2. They inevitably need to hold something of themselves back. Love can be problematic for them. No matter how deeply in love, they will always put their concerns first. This is not selfishness but an instinct for emotional survival.

Children and Family
February 2 people often bring emotional baggage from childhood into adult life. It's possible that an unsatisfactory relationship with a parent or sibling affected their upbringing. They may have to face unresolved issues before becoming parents. If this is not possible, they may choose to remain childless.

February 2 individuals have a strong, healthy constitution but may take foolish risks with their health and safety. Allergies can be a problem for them. Though they should not avoid conventional cures, they should seek holistic treatments. Acupuncture can be helpful.

Dreams and Goals
Liberty and self-determination are the chief life-goals of February 2 people. They don't care what they have to do or what they have to give up, as long as it provides autonomy. They do not see achievement as a linear path. They amass life experiences to help them in their quest to reach their full potential -- as they see it.

The thing that I regret the most

When I 'm 9 or 10 years old, my mother gave me the choice to choose either to learn piano or drawing. That time, I thought that piano is a very girly stuff. So i choose to learn drawing. But in the end, I didn't get anything from drawing also. Now I really really regret about the decision I made 10 years ago. Thinking of playing the song I like with piano makes me feel regret. Regret regret. T_T

Every little decision do affect our life. We might meet with different person, experience, etc. depend on the decision we made.
