day 1788 – stranger things

i’ve failed to do any of my heavy lifts for a while now because i’ve been so occupied with many things from all directions. to be honest, i think the number one cause that’s keeping me away is being overworked at work. i’m constantly stressed and sleep deprived, i think more than half a year without vacation makes me more weary than i know it. there’s not much of a work life balance and that needs to change. i’m going back to the drawing board to map out what needs to be done to get myself back into equilibrium – that means going back into the gym doing things i love

after the weekend, my work hour total would be over fifty five and my sleep total is halved that. finishing the work week with some well deserved coffee. i’m completely exhausted and taxed, but i’m going to keep grinding on the term project and final exam coming up next week. colleagues’ are friendly and work atmosphere is pleasant; i’m adapting quickly and learning lots on the go

day 1170 – tired brain

image

some thoughts are really getting to me lately. it bugs me, but speaking my heart is hard. maybe i am just faulty or maybe i just need to suck it up and accept not being accepted. i try to not let these thoughts get in my head, but it’s only human. the storm is coming and i’m not looking forward to going outside; perhaps once this rainstorm is over, it’ll be over for me too

day 801 – vintage

image

vintage coca cola bottles up for grab after today’s thanksgiving lunch potluck. i have been pretty good at staying away from carbonated pop over the past couple months. i am guilty of having one today because i couldn’t resist the vintage bottles, but let’s get back to none for the next little while. thanksgiving potluck at an appropriate time to end off what felt like a very long week. one that hasn’t allowed for much sleep, making me a super weary and tired soul, but heck i really don’t sleep much anyways and definitely not the prescribed healthy amount. this long weekend comes timely and i will designate some time to make up for the lack of sleep

day 779 – when and where

image

when is it my turn to take a real vacation to get away from this hectic life?? i have taken time off, i have flown and driven and gone across canada, but none of which was purely for vacation because i held competition obligations. i am drained, overworked and am in dire need of a vacation where i can just relax and get away from stresses of life no matter how big or small. there’s too many places, cities and countries on my wishlist; when and where will i be able to fulfill them??

day 748 – bottle man

image

this guy looks like he’s doing well hoarding those recyclable cans and bottles. wonder how he does it and if because i could learn a thing of two from him to get our competition fundraising going. if he keeps collecting at this pace, he might just break out of bankruptcy with that collection, or get him a week’s worth of mcdonalds artery clogging double cheesebugers. random thoughts and findings of the day to keep my boring monday drives to a minimal

day 709 – bowl of cherries

image

life is like a bowl of cherries. that’s how i wish my life was right now, except it’s completely opposite. constant struggles and endless thinking but still no answer as to what i need to do to get past the road block. even when i am tired, i cannot fall asleep at night because my brain is still spinning in circles. been juggling a lot and going through some rough patches, i find myself wanting to think of a solution but when i can’t i just want to escape reality
