I think this is the longest I’ve gone without updating this blog. It feels kinda weird. The truth is, work is keeping me so busy I barely have time to do anything else. I’m so tired I’ve gone delusional. This morning I was feeling incredibly dizzy so I sent a text to one of my coworkers telling her I won’t be coming in. Or I thought I did. Apparently, it was all in my head. I had imagined that I sent her the text, just as I had imagined that she had replied and told me to get better. It was a little bit embarrassing when they called to check on me and I insisted that I had notified them of my absence.
But that should give you an idea of how busy I’ve been! There’s a deadline coming up on Friday and another on Monday, after which I hope things will cool down a bit. There’s a lot I want to do! I want to finish working on The Muse Bunny. I already have a sample cover and everything, so all I need now is to finish writing the story already.
I also want to pick my way through the ever-growing pile of books on my desk. Not only do I seem incapable of not buying new ones, but I also can’t find time to read them. After a few months where I was consuming a new book every few days, my pace has slowed down considerably.
I also want to sleep, and I want to go catch a movie or two (I’m thinking Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Brave, mainly). Hmm. So that’s really not many things, but they’re still things I would like to get to eventually. Thankfully, amidst all this hecticness, there are a few rays of sunshine, including:
1. An assorted box of my Krispy Kremes favourite doughnuts, like their famous Cheesecake one, and others with a caramel, Nutella or Cadbury chocolate center. They were delish!
2. A box of sweet goodies! The box contains an Oreo brownie, macarons, a chocochocolate cake (so many layers!), a chocolate mousse cake and a chocolate-peanut butter cake butter. It was a sugar overdose.
3. Keel’s Simple Diary. My friend got me a black Keel’s Simple Diary this week. I usually can’t keep a diary, but this one is different. The daunting blank pages are not there. Instead, you have pages filled with nice quotations and simple questions that can be completed in a few minutes! It’s much more entertaining than filling blank pages with my thoughts.
Haha, this post ended up as a photo dump more than anything else, but I didn’t want the week to pass without posting at least once!
So.. how have you been doing? Are you short on time too? What usually helps you get through all the stress? I hear chocolate helps!
