Two Breaths Short
My life at the moment is like a train traveling at 200 km/hr on a never-ending journey. There is so much to do and so little time.
I've been traveling between Melbourne and Brisbane (that's a 2.5 hours flight) every two weeks the past month, and I'll be in Sydney this Wednesday and two weeks later, I'll be flying to Canberra. This, plus trying to conduct a series of focus groups, analyse my data and write my findings for work, and trying to complete 6 assignments within the next 1.5 weeks.
I've been waking up at 7am everyday, and going to bed past midnight trying to fit as much as I can into my day. It's a challenge trying to do all that, plus trying to socialise and spend time with people close to me, and what makes it even more challenging is trying to understand what people want from me.
It's frustrating, its extremely exhausting and at times, I really do feel like quitting - to jump on a plane and escape to somewhere isolated and far, far away. Sometimes, it gets overwhelming and all I want to do is to fly somewhere where I can start everything all over again and live a life as if I'm not responsible for anyone at all.
But alas, here I am, clenching my fist and grinding my teeth, marching forward as much as I humanely can.
Enough of my indulgence and whinge. Here's hoping everyone is well and happy.
