I Ramble: 1 August 2021

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

Hello, August! What a whirlwind this year has been. And suddenly it is August. I have four months left to make good of my promises to myself and to achieve the goals I set for this year.

I have definitely slipped a lot. I think I could not quite find my groove after Ramadan, which is not what should happen at all. Ramadan should have been the springboard to propel my further. Alas, that means I might not have observed Ramadan properly, which is why I could not reap the rewards.

My health has also deteriorated. I do not know if it is because of stress or if it the current unhealthy enviroment harnessed by the pandemic.

Anyway, I will give life another go. The problem with trying to wake up at 4am is the lack of desire to sleep once I get home from work. Instead, I find myself playing The Sims 4 on my computer until 1am. I know, I am lousy! Hahaha!

So today, I am determined to tire myself out completely that I will have an increased desire to hit the sack at 11 tonight. Maybe even sleep earlier since I will end work earlier today. I will also sign up for The Conqueror’s Challenge. Decided to start with the hardest medal straightaway, The Pacific Crest Trail, 4000km.

I calculated. If I were to hit 1km a day, it will take me 10 years to complete 4000km. I think it makes sense for me to put my body through the harder challenges first so that by the time I am wrinkly, I can do the simpler ones and feel good about the way I am aging.

Of course, I intend to push myself on my off days. I should try to cover as much distance as possible on my off days if I do not want to take 10 years to complete the challenge!

Alright, I am feeling quite determined. I like how it rained as I headed out of the house just now. I will be working alone today. I think today will be perfect.

And Allah is The All-Knowing. – MM
