It's weekend

The work week had been not good for my soul. Thank goodness that weekend is here.

For yours truly who detest noises, it had been an unbearable week with the drilling that has been going on near my office. Somehow, the Town Council decided that it is necessary to have even floorings. In order to achieve this, workers have been posted to drill away certain concrete floorings so that a new layer of cement can be put on to make the floor even. I dread noises and even drillings from a distance away can get on my nerves. Thankfully, I had earplugs given to me by Mistipurple to provide some relief from the noise. Otherwise, I think I would go crazy from the noise.

Work wise, there had been ups and downs. I would like a better match between the tasks that I am assigned to and my current interests. If anyone knows of a better match, please keep me in mind.

It is weekend, I hope it would be a recharging on. I am feeling as if I am on the verge of breaking down. For the past nights, I have been waking up in the middle of the night, feeling out of sync with myself and overwhelmed. These are signs of alarm to be mindful of.

My consolation is that strangely, I am now in the mood to practise on the double bass. Playing on the double bass has helped to bring life to my disintegrating soul.

What a great friend Misti is! It's wonderful to have such friends huh. :) I have yet to meet her in person.

I don't know how you could survive all these years in your job. :P

I can imagine it can be depressing at times to often hear people's problems and complaints.

Wish you luck on a new change of environment. I'll keep a look out.

eastcoastlife: Misti is a great friend. I got to know her through blogging just like how I got to know you. :)

Hearing people's problems etc is manageable with adequate support in place and a dose of empathy. :)

One challenge probably is how to advocate for more flexibility in policies to meet up with the changing needs of today's people. Yet advocacy at this level is neither my strength nor preference.

Thanks for your wishes.
