almost a year

Same old same old. I didn't change track, I'm still on the same road I'm traveling. The only thing that's been up and down is my weight. At least the weather is getting warmer and cellulite is not flattering with a swimsuit. And its easier to eat salads when it's warmer.

At a crossroads

Boss has been nagging me to change jobs - well, not exactly job, but status. I dunno if Academia is for me. I've settled in a routine (head low, submerged, doing what I do).. that can be classified as "same old same old". BUT it has its perks on being constant. This new adventure on the other hand, has its challenges and freedom. Its like playing the stock market with my nest egg... boo. Choices choices...

its been awhile

Been horribly swamped these days. Dunno why work keeps piling up. The old belief that seniority makes things easier are all lies. I remember way back when I worked damn hard as my senior mentors took the back seat and watched me struggle and learn. Now that the tables have turned, it seems the protectionist atmosphere and fear of reprisals shift the work to the "experienced" ones as the younger staff do less and less. I work harder than the equivalent grade 10 years ago. At the same time, I have more under my belt when I compared to my past self as a junior to the "Junior staff" these days.

cherishing my holidays more and more.
but that means I have a shitload of stuff to get back to.

Summer's almost over..

School's around the corner and the idyllic driving to work without the jams is going to end soon. This summer has been a real doozy. I've successfully met my target weight; but the way I shed the pounds was really non intentional. I mean, I had to lose the pounds gradually, just not at once. The boobs have shunk, the hips and waist deflated, and the jeans loose. I should be happy, right? I just have to "re-distribute" whatevers left so I look "healthy".

Back to the grind

Ok, I've weighed myself and its time to get back on the Special K and treadmill / elliptical routine. Its been a month and I've shed 7 lbs. More to lose this time than last time..
Gotta work hard!

Sheep year. Sh*t year

This Chinese year has not been a good year. Dunno if my sign does not have an affinity for four legged grass eaters. So far in the 3 days of CNY I have gotten a speeding ticket, and a massive flu which pretty well made me mute for 3 days. Now I'm coughing and wondering if i will see my lung next. Damn. Not a good start.



Spring is here

Horrible winter. Had such a bad flu had to break out the puffers.
Looks like the weight loss program is will still be on hold.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I helped bakexneko see the light (8 points). Last Thursday I farted in an elevator (-6 points). Last Monday I signed my organ donor card (28 points). In February I ruled Iran as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). Last Friday I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points).

Overall, I've been nice (654 points). For Christmas I deserve a shiny red ball!
