>Isn’t this a great thing?

To know that people actually listens to what you’re saying and to hear what others have to say? This, is what I call effective communication. Or interaction, I suppose. I haven’t had anyone who has listened so sincerely to me for such a long time, and it’s such a great feeling to have, especially when it is evoked from someone in Poly. Thanks, Hafiza for having a listening ear, I had soooooo much fun talking with you, you know!

Not that my BFFs like Shuhui don’t listen to what I say, but I hadn’t really expected I would find a person to really share my guts out and in turn return the favour by listening to them talk here in Poly.

Don’t worry, BITCHES, you’re still the best!

Listening, to me, is such a great skill to have. If you just talk incessantly, no one will listen to you. And it’s such a pleasure to be listening and to understand what people has to say, it’s such a nice thing to do. Just shut up and listen. To the people around you, to your surroundings, to everyone and everything. Sometimes, you learn and experience more when listening, and not talking.

I love to share my thoughts. And I like to know that people appreciates them and listens to what I have to say. This is important to me. Unless you don’t want me to talk. Haha! (I can be more than a little irritating sometimes too!)

Effective communication and interaction sounds so easy, but are listening and speaking at the right times as easy?

For me, not really. But it’s an experience. A great one. It’s so good to listen to what others have to say, it’s even a better feeling when you can relate to their words and feelings.

You just have to find the right person to share, and talk, and have a hell of a great time.

What a wonderful day today!
