Uncertainty 

Life can take such a sharp turn. About two weeks ago, I was so stressed over work until I fell sick. I have yet to recover. 

Then, despite the sickness, I felt happy because I have a short vacation. No work, no stress. 

Then, life spiralled downward after the vacation. Father need a major surgery and is still recovering. He is sad and I am sad too. 

Now, I have triple whammies of personal health, work and family’s troubles. 

Trying to find small joy in life by escaping to books, YouTube, HK dramas and Pokemon go from real life problems. 

Holidays 

After a short break after hectic work life, I felt happier. Before the vacation, I dread going to work.  No matter how I stay back after office hour, I still have tons of work undone. 

Vacation really cleanse the negativity of the past few months. I manage to have good quality sleep during the short break too.  Hopefully, I can continue the healthier lifestyle, but I am worried I go back to the same pattern. 

Keep having headache and joint pains in the last few days.  Hope it go away soon. Need to stretch..

1/3

1/3 of the year has passed and I am still stuck in a rut. 

I want to live my life for myself but I can’t. 

Many restless night that resulted in fatigue. 

Work life is so soul sucking. Felt like every email is a dementor. 

The thought of going back to office is so dreadful.

This is my blog, I don’t have to pretend to be happy or be positive when I can’t. 

Dislike positive police who is so smug in their positivity. 

Also, don’t like social justice warriors who is always looking for ways to be offended and so unforgiving for other people’s mistake. 

I want to exercise but all I do is lying on my bed surfing nets after work. 

Even Pokemon doesn’t excite me anymore. 

All my unhappiness can be point to work but money from work is my only escape route from unhappiness from work. 

Need to do one meaningful thing in the remaining 2/3 of the year. 

Random stuff

Watched Jacky Cheung’s concert and was very impressed. The stage was spectacular.   I love the part where all the stars are dancing around him. At 55 years old, he still can dance and sing effortlessly.  One of the best concert I ever attended. 

Watched Survivor Game Changer.  My favourite player, Tony, is voted off.  Doesn’t like the fact that Sandra targeted him and gloated while he was gone.  Sandra acted like Russel Hantz instead of the underdog in Pearl Island. Still think that their original plan to have all the treat in one alliance is a better idea. Now, Hali Ford & Troyzan, got free passes. Meh.

Feel sick after working too hard.  My body finally protested.

On a positive note, I finally remember how to float on water.  

慢活

最近剛旅遊回來。還沒去之前,趕趕趕,回來之後,又是趕趕趕。只有那短短的假期,體會到慢慢的活著的美麗。太陽不會因為我們每天衝著死線而早點下山。慢一點,好好的休息,在沙灘漫步,欣賞夕陽,星星和碧海藍天。

1st Post of 2017

It is already 15 Jan 2017.

I want to be healthy and happy.

Keep walking 10, 000 steps per day.

Strech.

Chinese New Year is coming and this year, my spring cleaning will be half measures because of my injury. Did throw away lots of stuff. There were some bags that I never use for years, and all the shoeboxes that took up space. 

Need to restrain from buying books because I have many unread books. 

Watched Stranger Things and the show was good. Waiting for Season 2. 

Watching Sherlock but it was a bit tedious. I can’t concentrate for more than an hour. 

八時入席 is over. Watched because of 陳國邦 but the show seemed to be focusing on 十仔。Okay with the younger actors but 心裡有點不是味道。

My passion with Pokemon Go is winding down because I just have no luck with hatching eggs – I seldom hatch any rare Pokemon and still lacking 5 Gen 2. If it is based on legwork, I can walk to catch. The current Gen 2 Pokemon are based on eggs and the game just reminded me how luckless I am. 

Before my back injury is fully recovered, I have flu 😒. I want to be healthy. 

Need to find something interesting to focus so that I do not frustrated over work easily.
