day 449 – skytrain ad

image

taking transit for the first time in a long time and i don’t miss it one bit. i don’t miss squishing into a crowded bus during peak hours, or a soggy people when mother nature can’t stop crying. that skytrain platform advertisement is right, states shopping is just two hours away, i was there last weekend. unfortunately we were pressed for time on our way home and didn’t get enough time to shop for all that i wanted

twenties series: [eight] pace

it may sound strange coming from a person whose life runs at the speed similar to the highway traffic where park zones do not exist. i am just at a point in my life where all my commitments and deadlines are happening all at once, and no matter how fast i push myself, i can never fit everything into a my twenty four hour span. i hate to say that all my commitments may not even fit even if i was granted an additional two hours each day. i drive a bmw with a relatively powerful engine, if i was given a race caliber car, it would be scary scene to see how fast my life moves at when i step on that gas pedal. in the past month, i have been running on a full load and tight schedule based on an average of five hours of sleep per night. its a miracle that i am still functioning after several weeks but i am uncertain how long i will be able to hold up. some things has got to change or i won’t be able to keep up with this hectic and crazy lifestyle. with that said, life is not a race to the finish line, learn to slow it down and pace yourself. you will be glad you did because there are many rewards at every stage of life and chances are you may miss it if you speed through everything

day 414 – working away

image

working on catching up with all my school, work, personal stuff and everything in between. my to do list is endlessly long and can’t imagine the list getting any shorter as this year wears on. need to work on using my time more wisely and relying less on procrastination or else i will forever be behind. this is just the beginning of a very busy season, please let me get through without any breakdowns

day 209 – an attempt to be productive

image

at waves working away trying to get many things done and catch up with my many works, most of which are due this week but i have delayed it until the very end. why does situation look so familiar, it is like a sin to finish things in advance because that’s not how i roll. sometimes i find procrastination brings the best out of me, aside from the stress

day 161 – final push

image

last full day for final push to make the deadline. was working on my portfolio since waking up and all of the sudden my screen appeared as a blur of white light. not only do i have to fight against time, but also fight against myself, black out, putting and splitting headache. it’s been that kind of day. i just want to complete this in time, nothing else matters at this point

day 159 – procrastination

image

can’t stress enough how tough it is working on this through christmas holidays when all i want to do is celebrate like every normal person. reality has hit me and it’s about time i pick up the pace and work faster. productivity and sense of urgency has been low and now the deadline is only days away.

day 130 – my good old friend timmys

image

chicken salad sandwich and caffeine at timmys keeping me company as i try to be productive in between my morning and evening tkd sessions in hopes i would actually get some stuff done with the limited amount of time remaining. i have missed timmys dearly but i am happy we have reunited
