Numb

Just like my good friend Jackson, who also just joined the rat race, I'm in a transitionary period. I'm a bit numb from the new routine - waking up at 6.30am and reaching home at 7pm (usually) definitely eats up most of the time I use for leisure. I usually blog about my daily life, but at the moment I am refraining from writing about my workplace in fear of being dooced.

With some simple mathematics, one could easily calculate that I can only blog about the things that happen between 7pm and 11pm (before I pass out from the exhaustion). Unfortunately, that also happens to be the most boring time of my day. If I were to blog about what happens between 7 and 11 everyday, my blog would look like:
Monday
7pm: Watch downloaded movies
9pm: Take a shower
10pm: Read blogs
11pm: Sleep

Tuesday
7pm: Watch downloaded movies
9pm: Take a shower
10pm: Read blogs
11pm: Sleep

....

Friday
7pm: Watch downloaded movies
9pm: Take a shower
10pm: Read blogs
11pm: Sleep
I'm sure you get the idea.

Weekends are definitely another source of blog posts. While I hope to make my Saturdays and Sundays more exciting and productive, at the moment I'm just too lazy to put keyboard to Blogger. I would rather unwind from the week by watching even more downloaded movies. In the long run I plan to join a gym, get active in Buddhism again, and work on my love life.

But until those things come along, there will probably be a serious dearth of posts. After all, I'm sure you wouldn't want to come in everyday and read:
7pm: Watch downloaded movies
9pm: Take a shower
10pm: Read blogs
11pm: Sleep

Not easy talking about work anyway. Maybe you could lay hints :)

Hints? With my photos all over my blog, it wouldn't take a genius to figure out who I am talking about!

But I *could* insert random words in between sentences, which when stringed together would lash out at inept bosses and jealous co-workers!

And then I can write a best selling novel about it :P

Dooced? Another new word for me. Take a leaf out of the da Vinci code. I'm sure your readers would be thrilled to be deciphering codes everytime they read :)

moses: telly? But they have annoying advertisements that can't be skipped!

You don't think they will appreciate it? Hmmm.. Probably. Your code is rather easy to crack :P
