Dearest family, friends and people who owe me money.

The weeks have been spilling into months without me realising how fast time is moving. Work has taken centrestage in my waking and sleeping hours (in other words 24/7). Time for friends have been minismised to text-messages and blog comments. Family time is redefined as "the five minutes of catching up before everyone goes to bed". My time with God happens while I'm dividing my attention between Adobe Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop on my E-mac. (I'm a designer).

Currently, I'm working on two killer design projects. What kills (besides the 15- hour exposure to conditioned air daily) is the fact that both deadlines are clashing and equally demanding. When I think of an animal that aptly depicts my work progress, I think of the tortoise. Slow, steady and cold-blooded. Need I explain more? Well, I'm not the quickest designer in town. And demanding jobs are always due yesterday. You get the picture.

Here's a brief account of my work week as of 9 April 2005.

My schedule is begging to get very hectic. I have less than a month before leave and in that time I have to climb a mountain, go for a 4 day camp, decide which university I want to spend 2 years at, pack for the move of my life, finish the paper I'm writing at work and somehow present it before I go, keep the house from burning down when both my parents are overseas and somehow, I've gotta prepare myself emotionally since I'm going to be leaving my only support system of friends and family.

But I still think you have it worse...

Cyber-red: Ha ha... Well, its safe for me to place a disclaimer like that... Still single what!

Daeni: Heya, we'll all go through our mountains of stress and hectic activity. Just remember to keep your focus on what's important - Jesus, Family and friends and The Apperentice (TV3: Sun 11.00pm)
