Staying Up

It's 11.30pm right now and I am just beginning to compose my article for today. Why? I missed writing it in the morning when I was doing my daily routine of 15K steps walk. The reason why I missed it was that I only had three hours of sleep the night before. Definitely insufficient but I had no choice as I worked late last night to complete some rush work that my designer threw to me at the last minute (so annoying).... and then I had to wake up extra early because there was a water cut (yes, again!) in my area today from 9am until the evening. 

So, I was forced to be up to boil our drinking water and store enough for washing and stuff to be used throughout the day. How inconvenient, but what to do? I don't see any workmen in my area, but they have disrupted our water supply twice within a month. When will their work be done? I hope today's the last time our water gets cut in a long while.

Today, I managed to get my precious afternoon nap. I had to, with three hours of sleep, I was like a walking zombie already. Good thing that I could recharge, unlike the past few days when I was soooo packed that I had to forgo my nap! 

And tonight, because I still have so much to do, I will have to stay up to complete my tasks yet again. Tomorrow is December, which means that I will start counting down to my freedom, my retirement, my claiming back of life! 31 days more to a whole new chapter of life... well, actually not new, but back to when before I got sucked into agency life!

People say, if you are not happy with something, you can always walk away. Well, easier said than done. Like a bad marriage, you feel like you must get away, but to divorce from the situation or circumstances, you quite literally have to bring out a cleaver to chop off some limbs. It's painful, but once it is done, there is only relief.   

And tonight, after my work, I have some homework to do, related to cryptocurrencies. I have to start being serious about it and open my mind further to the many opportunities that it can bring. I read in the news how bad the economy is in Turkey, and how the Lira has plunged. I have this fear of it happening to Malaysia one day. I believe that crypto will save the day, so it is always better to be prepared, should this eventuality happen. 

So, again, even though I am not someone with a technical mind, I am forced into a situation where I need to learn. And I will.

Earlier today, I attended an AMA with a crypto founder and we get to ask questions during a Q&A session. 30 people who asked questions were picked to win cryptos... I was mid-way typing my question when the window was closed and I couldn't get to put in my question! I later learned that these people who managed to submit their questions wrote them and copied and pasted when it was time for Q&A, rather than listen to the questions and replies during the interview and then pose questions based on that session! Duh.... I was crossed at myself for being as straight as a ruler but oh well, we learn something new every day, truly. Wouldn't it be great to have additional crypto in my wallet? There will be another prize to win on another day! Let's keep the luck up! Teehee!

So is the crypto world, take advantage of any opportunity, you know you should have your questions beforehand, it happened to me too, waiting to ask my question and I didn't have time to write it up. But from your previous articles you are doing very well, you will be very successful with cryptos.

You’re right Em, we live and learn every day. I’m sure you’ll thrive in the crypto world once you have more time for it in New Year. Let the countdown start! 💙

Thanks for your faith in me. It's a fairly new game for me, let's all learn and navigate together.

Oh well, maybe better luck next year? Have you considered taking up drinking? I had a coworker that swears up and down that everyone should at least do a few drugs in their life (no, joke, I mean seriously he believes that's true)

Well, hoping the best for you (and myself of course, but that goes unsaid really).

Goodnight girl. Hopefully your dreams will be a bit better ... and if not, kick those sucky dreams to the curb and slam the door! hehe :)

Best wishes

Are you ready for December?

December for me means no more slacking and less discarding. lol. I need to grind here again just to add more BCH to my wallet. And yes, I also need to learn more stuff in crypto to add more to my portfolio.

And hope to get your freedom back. Let me know if it's time for us to have fun online. HEHE.

Not ready for December... I have to prepare the annual report for clients. If monthly reports take me 3 days to complete, this will take me a week each! Arghhh... need a break first before my next grind.
