day 1669 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off in the future

day 1656 Рtech signage 

tech team signage is now up and hanging over my workstation. working on a statutory holiday for a swap day because there’s too much to do for the amount of time i’m have during regular hours. logging another eleven and a half hours to get my millennial drawings into the plant for production. it’s great to hear that manager likes expressing to me; said i’m trustworthy person to vent to and probably valued my insight. as a result, i’ve also found it much easier to open up to him to mutually support each other

day 1647 – karaoke party

the start of saturday morning shifts has begun so i’ll be working nine straight hours on saturdays between two jobs. i wonder how long i will last with sixty four hour work weeks before i burn out. i was tired after the two shifts but doesn’t change my plans for an impromptu karaoke and board games night. i had a good night chilling with peeps. it was the fun i used to have; the good company kept from thinking why i’m still feeling solo all the time. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life

day 1630 – remote access

it looks like a battle of laptops, but i’m actually remotely accessing my work computer through the network. i have been granted permission to work at home on selected days to accommodate the hardship of the commute and discomfort of my ailing hand. people should trust and respect that i’m trying my best not to disrupt the work flow. i could easily take the days off and leave my team with my work, but i’m not the irresponsible type. it’s tough that i have a dysfunctional hand and must miss all my physical activities. beyond that, what kills me is knowing and then losing hope that my stuff is at all important. why am i so dumb repeating myself more than twice thinking it’ll stick

day 1626 Рsandwich 


saturdays is barely considered meal prep. if lucky, i’ll get two toasts in; if not, one will get me through until dinner time. all these years i’ve managed killarney saturday classes as well as i could and no question i put my heart and soul into it. if sifu stopping by today changes because i taught wearing a t-shirt instead of full uniform due to a broken thumb, i have nothing to say except it’s unfortunate. i should be letting my thumb take a good rest but here i am being my workaholic self. i can only say i do my best to not miss a shift, even when i’m in considerable pain

day 1618 – more student

more work coming my way, taking on another student. she approached me for help and i’m a willing helper, though the obstacle is also time availibility. i’ll have to figure out my already crammed schedule to see how i can accommodate the both of them; at least i know i’m wanted somewhere. somehow, somewhere i think i was born to teach something since i find teaching all the time

day 1609 – gym needs

headache at work got pretty bad again to the point where i didn’t seem useful and should just go home. but i stayed and kept thinking the tylenol will kick in soon enough. i was only looking forward to going to the gym, and stubborn enough even if i were to collapse during. i really wanted to since i haven’t made up for the missed monday and i wasn’t about to do another shuffle nor write off this week
