Strictly for my friends

Sunday, October 15, 2006


What do you do when your life suddenly becomes so incredibly busy that you cant recognise it anymore?

You suddenly seem to have no time for your friends, no time for family and most importantly no time for yourself! Everyone asks for more and you want to give them that time, but you just dont know how!

You have the weekends, I can hear you say that! Yes, I do. But I just seem so tired with the first five days of the week, and so caught up with unfinished chores on Saturdays, that Sundays are spents 90% in bed! Wake up, eat, bath, laze around, eat, go to sleep, wake up, eat, watch TV like a lazy lump of lard and after dinner go back to sleep again!

Can you believe my week? It's been so long that I took the time to do something simply because I wanted to. Like watch a movie quietly or read that good book I've been meaning to for so long! Or even post on my blog and check other paople's blogs, replying to comments and such!

But the all-dominating factor seems to be W-O-R-K!

I dont want to crib any more, but tragic, isnt it? Any suggestions how to liven things up?

  • Hey its simple....
    It happened with me around more than a year back....i was famous among all shift members in my company..i used to go at 9:30 morning and come back at 11:30 PM or 03:30 AM next day.....
    but still managed the time, write mails, kall to friends in the evening(i think 1/2 hr kan be managed)......

    And for last i just wanna say...
    we kant run away from what is written already....acept it with full heart....and i am sure every1 who cares for you and loves you will also understand that fully......

    I think i am clear in my assertion.... wat say??????

  • Just one suggestion, don't think too hard about it. ;)

  • What suggestions can I give you when am facing the same thing. In fact just yesterday one of my friends really gave ma a massive scolding because I have been out of touch since more than a month... And there are others who keep on reminding me that they are so good that don't even say anything even when I forget them.....

  • You need to take the french as an example...

    They got the paid holiday system into their system in 1936 and they work only 35hours/week. If you work 37hours/week, the two hours you worked you can take holidays later...besides this factor, France remains the country which produces good work quality in Europe...and they don't work on weekends, they have their own long holidays...guess what, still France is the country where anti-depressors are largely used in Europe...

    So, do what you feel like take back my first phrase...don't take french as example!!!

  • You are just 25, would you allow your mind to do its job.

    There is nothing wrong with being busy for a change and being a bit lazy. It is part of your life. Let it mature itself to a full blown woman.

    Don't you worry about !!!

    I am back

  • What can I say dear when I am on the same platform. But I guess, we will have to think hard about Time Management. Perhaps, that would help us :-)

  • can see to the flip side of over stressing oneself in the armchair of work. can connect myself with you. may be the best way to deal with is to accept it and grow ourselves into the habit of working like busy bees. bhew bhew...cry, feel better then get up to work again!
