day 1847 – work screens

when i’m finally free from meetings and trying to get some work done and it department remotes onto my computer to play with my outlook. work is stressful day in and day out, but it’s made better when coworkers messed up with my Brain. it’s funny the topic covered in today’s emerging leader program is mainly about stress management and how to cope with it. it’s one of those things i’ll training for as i continue to grow and lead my team

day 1798 – horseshoe way


getting into work after a long weekend is not quite fun. i was hoping the long weekend would change the insomnia and headaches but so far i feel little improvement. the one person at the office that never fails to give me stress is doing it again, and always trying to pick the moment when my manager is not present. both the planned and ambushed attacks are all part of her strategy to redirect blame when something goes wrong. the trend of taking drugs day after day is not the long term fix, i’m slowly beginning to think a visit to my doctor is necessary. now if only i can find time to make that call

day 1759 Рhomework latte 

this evening is all about homeworking while holding onto my cup of latte. i could be having fun on friday night, but i chose to do some catch up work at forty ninth parallel. there’s never enough time for all the things i must get done and the extra stress is noticeably getting to me this week. two more sleeps of home alone before my family fly back from their europe trip. it sure seems like they’re having a good time, but my mom still checks in to make sure i’m doing okay

day 1693 – say no

i dreamt that i was really stressed at work and turns out i had a good reason to. three of my tech members were away or sick. it’s irritating when one of then has been missing a lot of time giving reasons like slept in, migraine, stomachache or lung disease. it bugs me how low their threshold is, to call in sick so hastily and so often. i, too, am in quite some discomfort, but here i am at work responsible and trying to get some things done

day 1685 – board cuts

the aftermath of a blackbelt test i didn’t want to work. it didn’t bode well from the beginning and only got worse when i’m told by the grandmaster to hold a board when he knows very well my hand isn’t healed for it. it really has become a hostile environment i’m tired of bearing his unreasonable and unethical ways. it has caused me too much grief and too much sleep and i’m no longer willing to go the distance to suit his needs while i sacrifice my happiness. either his attitude has to change and respect has to be there, or that’s the end of an era

day 1645 Рspot the difference 

i feel like i’m playing spot the difference every time i compare the new rendering with the old. there’s a huge shift in my work these days and i find i no longer spend much time at my own workstation. all morning long, i’ve been running around checking in at people’s desk, touched neither my breakfast toast nor morning fruits until around half past eleven. it was an uber stressful morning dealing with a fully loaded plate. i’ve been assigned so much more responsibilities colleagues jokingly said i now also carry the title as design manager assistant. i’m overtly tired after tutoring i opted out of gym and went home for some grub

day 1637 – canuckle head


dethroning the kings wasn’t expected but that’s what canucks did as eriksson potted two goals within four minutes into the first period. my prediction prior to the game was a win four to two,  but they went on to drown the kings six to two. getting the win was good but also seeing boeser score two more and horvat finally back in the lineup was even better. this night out was definitely needed as i had one heck of a day at work fielding ridiculous requests after requests. wish these people dishing out unreasonable requests would have some understanding and knowledge of what we do is really not cut and paste
