The summer is slipping by

So it's been raining a tonne lately and I have to say, it's making everyone around me gloomy. It's raining enough to slow down your day and keep the skies dull but not enough for the HK Observatory to feel it's dangerous to go outdoors, so you're going to work and meetings with wet socks on a daily basis.

With my getting sick a week ago, my whole schedule went upside down and I've been playing catch-up for the last forever. I must say, 2 things that can ruin all my motivation to get anything done is having too many "unfinished" items in my to do list for too long (ie. incomplete for over 3 days) and a very messy desk/room. Right now I have both of them and it's terrifying because no matter how much I try to discipline myself or remind myself "focus on each task, don't worry about the big picture", it just creeps back into my head and makes me go "oh man this list never ends!"

Speaking of never ending lists, man there is so much stuff I want to watch nowadays and so many games I want to play! And Humble Bundle having their TellTale bundle isn't helping at all you know.
Netflix won't stop adding good content and I have yet to organize all my own media (not to mention the backups of photos and videos of my own). Oh why won't there be a long holiday for a change? Somehow my weekends just zoom by.

Anyway, but someone did ask me "would you rather be busy like you are now, or have nothing to do?" and man I must say, at the end of the day, I much prefer ending my day looking back and seeing how much I've progressed, accomplished and grown in just the last 24 hours. I try to make sure I leave 1 hour of total down time for myself before I sleep because even if I don't, I end up taking an hour to wind down and fall asleep anyway, so it's not really any different.

Well the good thing is I get to stay home all day today and just work, which means I have the next 12 hours to burn through my to do list and hopefully get it down to an acceptable amount and end my day with an extra big smile on my face :)

And if possible, even clear my desk! I bet half of these papers need to be thrown away....

Well enjoy the next 10 days, I'm hoping the fact that it's actually not raining today is a good sign of a fresh beginning! :)

An hour wind down before sleep? Don't you meditate and do yoga mate?
