The calm before the storm.

Reactions: 
It actually happened this week that it was pretty scary for me!

This week began overall the same like last week, less demand from my work though I required to assist programmers every now and then. But still, it was a breeze.

I could feel that the project status was unstable--there are changes every day. I consider this as something I need to understand because I realised that the project turnover is very high and fast-pacing. I need to tell myself a few times: it is going to be so not-boring! Yay!

Having been bored for past few weeks tired me to death--couldn't stay longer than 6PM because sitting in quietness without having any specific thing to do really bored me and my creative mind. Like I have mentioned millions of time here, I hate having nothing to do, it drains my energy faster than having normal activities. Also, time seems to pass much slower and I hated that.

It was all calm and breeze until yesterday.

On Friday, we had our daily meeting and I sorta felt this uneasy feeling. Then I realised there was one urgent task for me to do that need to be finished on next Monday or Tuesday.

Sudden come of the storm of work!

I surprised myself, I felt more excited than stressed! I enjoyed organising my to-do list, I enjoyed consulting other team members on the problems, I enjoyed asking help from my colleagues, I enjoyed having myself distracted from my Firefox browser and being fully occupied to the demanding work!

Guys, be honest, am I weird for enjoying myself being so busy?

I have no idea why, I just enjoy being busy much more than having nothing to do. It has been like this since the first day of my uni years.

I guessed I would finish all the work demanded by Monday, but weirdly by 4PM yesterday I almost finished everything. Weird, I know? Based on how the work was delivered to me I thought it would be crazy exhausting and stressful. I didn't know I almost completed everything before the end of Friday!

I was really proud of myself!

Pic of me being proud:


I know ever since a few years ago when I said I wanted to be an IS consultant, it was wrong. I think I look more like a designer than a consultant. And here I am, a full-time designer now! There is no way a consultant can show this kind of stupid face off! Nobody knows about our future, so chill out! To be very honest I didn't know I would be a designer although I was working so hard about system and business a few years ago. I literally learn from zero again now!

I will be much relaxed on next Monday and get myself all pumped to review and recheck all works I have finished on Friday! Meanwhile, there is nothing for me to worry this weekend because I have finished almost everything!

If I were to be scared of the storm, I will never be able to improve myself. I guess I have learned how to dance in the rain!

Slowly la. Because I hate getting drenched. I hate stress and pressure--it changes me completely. Though I can never prevent it not to come, but when it comes, I am fully prepared to enjoy it as well!

And this week's skies:


Calm and sunny Monday!


Calm and sunny Tuesday!

And I skipped Wednesday, I think because I went to work super super late.

Then a storm came on late Wednesday night.

It was storming hard, so scary! Just like the saying: the calm before the storm. It was perfectly calm and sunny before but on Thursday early morning it was crazy storming I squirmed under my blanket, was scared to death!


Thursday morning, after storm.


And another calm and sunny morning on Friyay!

Have an enjoyable weekend everyone!


Lots of love ♥

  1. Hope your weekend have been awesome so far.
    it's not weird that you find having a lot of work to do is fun. I think its 'calming'.
    During working hours, i prefer to be doing a lot of work than little work too.
    I used to stress about it but now I tell myself to 'just do it!' coz stressing over doesn't accomplish anything.
    So, your attitude during heavy work load is applauded!
