In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Ola! Wow, haven’t been here in ages as always and definitely not happy to report that I have perpetually failed to rouse at 5am.

I think my body is too old for it. I know, reconditioning is always possible but damn, it is hard with the type of job I have.

So, quit my job? Lol sure but I will need a better plan first or else it looks like I will be stuck here for sometime.

But you know what, let’s just forget about my failures and focus on regrouping again. In three days’ time, I will be getting a little Christmas holiday break. Thought it will be a good chance to weigh things out and do some deep-cleaning in the house in preparation for the new year, 2020.

I know, what the heck, right? I remember thinking as a kid that 2020 is like some far away distant future because at that point of time it was still the good old 90s. Even after entering the millennium, I still felt that 2020 was distant. And now, whoa, Insya Allah, I will be living it!

And Insya Allah, I won’t be living it single! ;P

Of course, there is nothing wrong with being single. I must admit I’m still struggling to remember I’m married sometimes hahaha! I’m just too used to doing things by myself and going places by myself that many times people around me have to dial me back and remind me that I have a husband to take care of hehehe!

But all is good in general for me. Still not in the most ideal situation in terms of finances and self-management as (we have established by now) but you know, I’m happy. Hooray!

The manic depressive spells still happen once in a while but those have been more manageable for the past year. But I don’t want to jinx it! So let’s move on to another topic.

So yeah let’s break down my pre-Christmas break plans:

Pre-Christmas Break

Day 1 (21/12): That’s a cool date. So what shall I do first that’s just as cool? Well, one of the problems I face holding onto this job is the lack of time. So on a workday like today, I will need to breakdown my day into sections and figure out if I have enough time to do whatever it is I want or need to do. Sometimes work gets so hectic that my break is barely a break to be honest so I will have to try now.

On the way to work: Blog

Break time: Draw a number for gift exchange and buy snacks to pack into gifts for co-workers.

On the way home: Catch up on some Arsenal news. Arteta is manager?! Omo!

At home: Practise singing for jamming session on 24/12. Play ‘This Is The Police 2’ as a reward.

Day 2 (22/12): I’m currently addicted to the game if you’re wondering what ‘This Is The Police 2’ is about. I got it on Steam. I bought it together with ‘This Is The Police’.

On the way to work: Blog because why not?

Break time: Catch up on some reading. I need to return my library books soon!

On the way home: Continue reading because deadline’s looming!

At home: Practise singing for jamming session on 24/12. Play ‘This Is The Police 2’ as a reward.

Day 3 (23/12): I don’t think I would have finished TITP2 by this date so it definitely stays as my daily reward for my hard work!

On the way to work: Continue reading library book.

Break time: Continue reading library book.

On the way home: Blog.

At home: Practise singing for jamming session on 24/12. Play ‘This Is The Police 2’ as a reward.

That’s that for now. Will continue blogging tomorrow and chart out my Christmas break plans!

And Allah is Al-Kabir, The Greatest. -MM
