day 1776 – refresher break

getting to work on time was really difficult today because i felt like i never slept during the night. i couldn’t fall asleep until after 2am and was woken up twenty past four. i felt like crap at work the whole day. i could’ve easily gone home early, but too much u work in my queue i couldn’t even think about taking some time off for a nap. if it wasn’t for some tylenols and this refresher, i wouldn’t have last the whole day of work plus a couple hours of teaching

day 1721 – crap load

feeling pretty bad at work and also making bad decisions with food. my headache worsened, throat is dry and scratchy, knee is compensating for the hip, and on top of that i’m on some drugs and steroid drops. there’s a lot of work to be done at the office i can’t afford to miss any time. it’s my month to lead the design meetings and i’m currently heavily relied on so i feel obligated to hold down the fort. i toughed it out until the end but i’m going to crawl into bed before nine thirty and hope i wake up tomorrow morning good enough to work

day 1714 – twinning prisoners

my eye bags are extra big on this monday morning after not having fallen asleep until 2am. because i wasn’t finished my planning, my brain was still wired with all sorts of numbers spinning around and around. dressed to twin with my fellow monkey prisoner trying to get through the afternoon without coffee. fortunately i didn’t have to tutor today so i went for a good lift after work; testing out a new regime way different than what i am used to and hoping it’s something i could adopt

day 1679 – morning ice

sleep felt more like a nap when i decided to wake up extra early to join my teammates. an abbreviated version of sleep was what it was; upped my already early starts even more so to 5:30am so i can be on the ice. putting in the work for a productive full gear session with valuable take backs. needed a few more dosage of caffeine to get through both the work day and tutor. fatigued by dinner, i had planned for an early night which never happened

day 1643 – milking tea


i had such a good weekend i didn’t want it to end, or the fact i actually had a weekend. it’s back at work monday morning and drinking milk tea out of myself. i still feel slowed with a dull headache and is somewhat hungover. i’ll try to keep it tame this week for a change this. work will suck up a lot more of my energy because manager has for overtime from me as opposed to assumed overtime. the intention is to keep it as banked hours for the future, provided my assistance can come at the rate that work is increasing at

day 1622 – smiliesĀ 

i may not have had the most restful night, or even had enough at all, but it was a good day. looking at my workload and queue you would think i should be overwhelmed. instead, i’m handling the multiple deadlines and pressure in controlled manner. i was really dialed in and it’s paying dividends in productivity. i left the weekly tech meeting feeling really good with a clear picture. it seems i’ll be occupied ramping up on the new programs. monday work and tutor went smoothly which is worth smiling about

day 1594 – new bar

i forgot to set my alarm but my body clock works well enough to wake me up at half past six so i was minimally late for work. there are days i just need to keep plug in the headphones and keep going and going; hopping from work on top of work. start off the week strong with lifting and be the first to use this newly unboxed olympic bar. getting back into my routines has sure left me sore for days and i can’t wait do it all over again to be sore for days again
