Weekend Musings

I've been gone for like 19 days without any update in this blog and for the same reasons. I have been occupied with things at work. Being in the night shift for two months and six days now, I had to sacrifice some online time in exchange for ample amount of sleep and rest.

And while I have weekends off, it still feels like I have to do everything at a faster pace (think Jack Bauer and the hit series 24). Funny but I'd like to think that the phrase "lots of things to do, so little time" is more than just a cliche to me, because that's what I'm going through most of the time. I am trying to fit as much activities as I could during the weekends, bringing me back to a planner page that's filled with my to-do list of tasks I should finish.

However, if there's one thing that I find great about weekends, it's the fact that lately, I have been spending it (or should I say investing) in engaging conversations with a friend. It was something which I haven't done in such a long time. I kinda attest that nothing beats an exchange of thoughts and laughing my heart out in between. It gave me a wonderful feeling of relief that at least I have a life outside my job and the confines of my cubicle even once in a while.

It's one of my plans for this year -- have some me time, social life, leisure moment whatever you call it and put a space between work and life outside of it; I hope I'll be able to stick to that. It has begun in a manner that's well and with loads of fun (I think). I hope it will continue to be so.
