Don’t you just love it when the days rush past you in a whoosh, and you realise that you haven’t quite sat down with a cup of tea, doing nothing in about 36 hours? Of course, the third such day makes your body beg for mercy, but the endorphins do good to the brain. However, at some point, the body would decide to take matters into its own hands and crash, and I can see that coming shortly, but until then, let let the weak flesh not hinder the willing spirit.
The day ahead promises to be hyper busy. As usual, I have taken on more than I can handle at work (the word is “no”, LG), and one particular document, which I thought would be cakewalk, considering that I have been doing stuff like that for the past 17 years, surprisingly has me tied in knots. Partly because I tried out a new documentation software (“Scrivener”, anyone?) and after two days of working with it, have come to the conclusion that while it is great for humanities/creative writing kind of work, it is not good for scientific documentation because it.is.driving.me.nuts. Back to good ol’ Word, I suppose. MS-Word is a very inefficient program in terms of the backend memory guzzling, freezing, hanging etc., but it offers me all the functionalities that I need, and that is all matters when you are racing against time to meet deadlines. Classic pushing-much-under-carpet routine of mine.
Navarathri begins this weekend. I am not enthusiastic about it this year, because of work deadlines but knowing me, I would gather myself in the last minute and put together an extravaganza of sorts and kick myself about doing it. Ah, the joys of routine.
Yeah, I am stalling. I better get back to work if I need to get stuff done before the big crash comes.
Until the next post, people…
