Work-Life Balance?

These days have been spent working late in the office. Monday, Tuesday, I worked till the Cinderella hour, and last night, instead of partying at Roxy 99 which I should be doing, I spent it finishing up some reports till 1:30 am!

But what’s even weirder is that instead of hating it, I completely embrace it. I’ve realized it comes part and parcel of accepting this job, and being in this industry.

But what motivates me emotionally and mentally can be physically exhausting as well. One only has 24 hours to a day, and with too much to do, you wonder, am I slowing down, or is there just more work to be done? Often times, I feel as if I’m like a hamster running around the wheel… running till one’s exhausted.

Sigh, am I the only one who feels as if life is about either sinking or swimming? Hence, if you don’t trudge on, you’ll get left behind. So why be content in just being ordinary? There’s always time to be that anyway.

For the record however, I am not whining.

Life is indeed exhausting these days but I prefer my life right now to being stagnant and just fiddling with my fingernails. Fortunately, work is something I enjoy so far and I’ve realized how blessed I am working in an institution that feeds me these thick, juicy steaks from time to time.

Or at least, the free bao mien (instant noodles) in the office, which is equally acceptable.

So off we go, running once again. And delighted to have a life that allows us to run like hell and feel as if we’re actually achieving something for ourselves and the greater good. So let’s turn the speed on, shall we?


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
