I've been narcoleptic the entire week and it's just nuts. I don't know what it is about the office that leaves me completely drained by the end of the day. I know I always say I'm stressed but in Japan it was never like this; it was almost "good stress" if there is such a thing - I'm completely exhausted but I do get that buzz from having accomplished quite a number of tasks. Here I'm dead tired and yet I'm extremely unproductive. But I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon. Besides, our project is pretty damn cool. Or at least the members are. OK, that's a lie, they're all retarded. But seriously, it's fun.

My brat of a brother on not knowing the answers to exam questions:
Hindi ako nanghuhula, nira-random ko.
Smart ass.

My balikbayan boxes are here! The first one arrived on time, and the second is ahead of schedule! The latter is still in the province, though, so I have to go home this weekend to get my stuff. My mother is appalled by the amount of junk I managed to collect ("everything in there is yours!?!"). And to be honest, so am I. My goal for this year is to de-clutter. Seriously. Note that shoes and bags and clothes and gadgets do not constitute clutter.

The "house" my mother forced me to buy has now been transformed into a "farm". Apparently my brothers like to camp out there (like they put up tents, the works). It now houses two dogs, a couple of ducks, and two turkeys which will be devoured someday. And my mother has been planting here and there; I think there's eggplant and tomatoes and other shrubs I don't recognize. And the adjacent lot has a mango and sampaloc tree whose branches lean over the fence, and you know the rules - if the fruit falls on your backyard it's yours. The owners (or at least the owners of the tree trunk) don't mind though.

2009 was a year of self-indulgence. 2010 is for self-improvement. 2009 was a year of escape (and freedom?). 2010 is for finding the right direction.

P.S. I fell asleep while typing this. Anobuzz.
