Don't get sick of Mr. Jobs just yet

People don't show appreciation for things or people until they're gone. Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Anita Mui, and now.. Steve Jobs.

I woke up that morning of October 5th 2011 as per usual. Checked my phone messages, email, Instagram and Twitter. Of course, that's when I found out. I found out about Steve Jobs' death through an iPhone itself, like many others.

(After I told the boyfriend, he went "NOOoooOOoooOooooo... No more iPhone T_T")
(No worries people, Apple is still standing strong)

I personally admire Mr. Jobs for his determination and optimistic view of life. Well, he was born out of wedlock, put up for adoption at birth and dropped out of college for all we knew. But yet, he still became a legend. Truly inspiring.


And so, as a remembrance. Here is Steve Jobs delivering Stanford University’s 114th Commencement Address on June 12, 2005. Telling us 3 very meaningful story and telling us 'How to live before you die.'



When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
An extract for those who didn't bother watching.


"I remember when we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash.. Now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash."

"3 Apples changed the world: One seduced Eve, One awakened Newton and. One was in the hands of Steve Jobs."


Here's to another legend.
