Bowling Night Effect

The following blog was originally posted from my old blog, The Geejay Journal:

It’s my second week of working at my new job and so far, I’m still enjoying it very much. It is a very relaxed environment but the work is still challenging and exciting. The problem with being relatively new-comer in a new company is that I still do not know everybody that well and everybody else knows everybody else quite well.

From experience, I find it difficult to join in on on-going conversations because people would tend to talk about shared experiences past and present. So when the company decided to have a bowling night tonight, I signed up hoping to bond with my new co-workers.

Apart from the thick smoke-filled air of the bowling centre (smoking is allowed there), I’d say it was a very regret-free night. I enjoyed myself and got to know my co-workers a little better.

Now here is the thing… It’s been a while since I last played ten-pin bowling. Although I enjoyed the game, I’m now in pain. My right thumb and right wrist is aching at the moment and so is my left thigh (I know it shouldn’t be affected but it is).

And tonight, I was feeling enthusiastic in continuing the Lovarian Adventures webcomic at long last. I printed my blank comic page templates and started sketching. To my surprise, I found it painful in the wrist to hold a pencil! So, this is the case of “the mind is willing but the flesh is weak.” Ugh.

Hopefully the aches will pass before the weekend ends so that I will still have time to draw a new comic page update (in over four months). In the meantime, I will try to work on the new site at
