Of Books and Studies

Haha stupid previous posstttt :P
Anyway, I don't know what to write today. Last night I was reading my text book. It's about Industrial Workers, Issues and Problem Solving :)

The book touches a part about Sexual Harassment. Well, yea, kinda interesting ^^
There's also other parts too on alcohol, drug abuse, suicide, burnout and social problems amongs workers :)

Did you know? I've just found out what 'burnout' means. All this while, I've heard of it, but I have no idea what it meant. Here's the definition of it in Malay:

Burnout ditakrifkan sebagai keadaan yang menjemukan. Namun begitu, terdapat pelbagai huraian pendapat yang diberikan oleh banyak tokoh dan ahli fikir terhadap takrif dan maksud burnout. Ini kerana, burnout boleh terjadi dalam rutin seharian sama ada di rumah, tempat kerja mahupun persekitarannya

Pakar psikologi New York, Freudenberger (1981) telah memperkenalkan istilah burnout dan mendefinisikannya sebagai tahap keletihan atau kekecewaan yang disebabkan oleh kegagalan melaksanakan sesuatu dengan bersungguh sungguh. Situasi ini berlaku apabila individu cuba memperoleh matlamat yang tidak realistik sehingga menyebabkan mereka hilang daya tumpuan terhadap diri mereka sendiri atau orang lain

Oh ye, mungkin anda berfikir apa yg dah terjadi? Adakah Anna telah jatuh dan terhentak kepalanya atas lantai? hahaha. No la, I was just thinking maybe I should put up posts which is more on my studies or more knowledgeable posts :) Anyway, what have I been doing these days? Urghhh nothing much. Just read, read and read some more and yes, texts lol. Well, I've been thinking, maybe after this semester final exams are finish, I want to go get a job and work until the new semester is up again :)
Well, that's all from me
