What have I been upto?

Work has been keeping me super busy. I have always wondered why folks I know work weekends or spend their waking hours glued to the laptop. Now I know. It does get that busy occasionally. For probably the first time in my life, I go to bed beat and wake up craving a few more hours of rest. With papers due for class and a final exam next Thursday, I am feeling overwhelmed and drained.

Growing up every time some one older to me said “Enjoy for what its worth, you will never get this phase of your life again.” I would cringe. I wanted to be all grown up. I wanted to go to ‘office’. I wanted to be big and busy and saddled with responsibility. Now, I know better. I long for a break. I long to get back home and relax instead of working on assignments to be turned in the next day. I long for a weekend where I have nothing better to do than cook and clean and shop.

So, while I spend my break wishing for things that are not going to happen any time soon, I hope your week is better than mine.

  1. I know exactly what you mean, time seems to be running away from us as we get older, not enough hours in the day and too many things to do. I guess we have to just go with the flow and try and get as much done as possible…. So long as it is a productive day that is all that matters.

  2. Hi Laksh. Yes, time does fly. For that very reason, we should all try to find at least some little time to enjoy what we love best, each and every day. If you think you are overdue for a little R&R, I would urge you to commit to some time-off soon. I know you deserve it πŸ™‚ . Also, be thankful that you still have a job. In this economic climate, “a job” now seems to be a privilege.

  3. I think SPillay is correct, if you feel the need to take some time of to refocus and you will be fine. You are doing a great job, keep up the good work πŸ˜‰

  4. I think it’s so cool that you manage to make the time to blog when you are barely able to keep your head above water. Requires skill, desire and dedication Laksh. Collars up!

    Being busy is a phase, and true to its nature it will pass. Hang in there, you are doing great.

  5. @Kiran: True. Just that in addition to being productive, it felt draining mentally and physically.
    @Spillay: That definitely puts everything in perspective. Really looking forward to this weekend. Temp in the 60s yayy!!
    @Nandini: Need to remember this.
    @Suman: I realized it this week. I really love my blog simply because it keeps me connected and sane.
