Nothing much to write. Same rantings as usual (I guess). Work. Study. Work. Study. Bla bla bla bla bla..not that I’ve lost ideas on what to write (there are zillion of ’em), I just feel time is not siding me. Too many thing yet too little time.
Been working on my last assignment before the semester end (I am working on it now as a matter of fact, writing this post is like taking a break from the clustered mind). Thought I could pay more attention to it as my last consultation with my lecturer was really bad. I wasn’t happy with my assignments and neither does my lecturer (go to the corner of the room and cried).
Now that I’m working on the annual staff dinner, the preparation really take up my time from the studies. Not to mention, educating some staff on the nature of the event is tough; they just choose to act dumb about it and couldn’t care less on the details provided (typical local mindset). I have to say, dramas are everywhere since day one when the notice was up. I have to walk tall to answer all of the craps and the only factor that keep on driving me are the positive responses from peers and the passion of organizing an event.
So, while going through the assignment and the campus event half way, my boss gave me a ‘blow job’ (shame on you for thinking something else, boo!!). Was called in a meeting and was asked to travel in the next 2 weeks time. I’ll be going to a foreign places (yes, I’ll be going over-the-sea). I was excited at first then the fear slowly crawling in my body. I hate traveling alone on a business trip especially going to places that I’ve never been to before (even if my university send me to Paris where I might meet ‘Mitchel’, I will not appreciate it).
Whenever you’re required to travel, there’s zillion things to do prior to the departure. Paperwork here, paperwork there, materials preparation, reservation here and there and these usually take days to settle. If things goes not according to my pace, I usually scream and yell (literally lah, I still have small space of compassion at the corner of the heart) at those concerned in order to get things done.
Imagine how much of time left for me to work on my assignment? And it’s gonna due in two weeks time! At time, I would be too tired that I fall asleep the moment I start to read the first word of my readings. At time, I would do as much as I can during office hours but always got interrupted on last minute urgency. At time, I would read my readings during lunch and being teased by colleagues for not enjoying my meal. The only time that I think I can stay focus on my studies are the weekends. As a matter of fact, I am required to attend my friend’s holy matrimony wedding this morning and I just can’t go (although I have told ’em that I’ll be going) as I need to work on the assignment before I go off for my traveling (Veron, if you’re reading this, that’s the reason why I’m not there but I will be there for dinner later).
Whatever it is, I must get things done. I’m taking it one at a time and I believe I can do it.
Happy weekend everyone.
