Work & All That Stress

[This was written about 2 weeks ago]

I had such a bad week. It was overwhelmingly stressful. There were so many things to do and I didn't know where to start. I was being pulled in all directions, stretched thin. I'm a 'Yes can' person and it backfires on me lah all the time. I don't know why I think I can do everything. And on top of that, I'm horrible at delegating work. I just don't know how to do it. I hoard work and can't let go. I really should start learning to wean it off to other people. Unload some shit off my back. Can't be doing it all!!!! The stress got a bit too much for me that I called Thursday off. And I slept ALL day. I just needed to disconnect with work even if it was for just a day.

That being said, it's also the reason why I've been extra social during my weekends. Any time my friends ask me out, I'm in. Because I'm determined not to make my life at 27 just about work. I know people will say "this is your time to really dedicate yourself to work" "work while you still can" "pull the long hours while you still have the energy to". Girl, no. I don't need to be a slave to my work!!!! I need my fun times.

So I always go out of my way to make sure my weekends are... fun. Either out with friends or with family. I just need to go out somewhere. Of course I have my down time so I'm usually only up for outings after lunch..... cause I sleep...... til lunch...... haha it's all in the balance.

Anyway! It's a 9:41pm on a Sunday. Papa's birthday is tomorrow so we'll go to a nice birthday dinner, probably to a steakhouse because we only ever go to a steakhouse for birthdays. 

I was supposed to add some photos to this blog post but I'm too lazy now. Maybe I'll add in some later.

I have a short week this week - will be going on my much anticipated holiday this Thursday with friends. Been a long time coming so I'm soooo excited. Can't wait!
