No Time

I haven’t posted that often lately and it’s because I’m strapped for time in and out of the office. Tomorrow, I will be audited internally for conformance to the new Quality Management system the company is certifying with the ISO. So tonight, I’ll be reviewing all the documents that could be related to my tomorrow’s internal audit. Although it isn’t really a graded exam, I feel like it still is and tonight I’ll be doing a lot of old-fashion university cramming.

I should be thankful that my Story boarding class got cancelled because of lack of students. I’m not really that bummed out that the class got cancelled because I’m also having second thoughts about it. Since they cancelled it, I got my money for tuition refunded. Maybe I could just use that money to enrol in a Mandarin Language class instead.

Also, I’m very pre-occupied with tweaking my new iPAQ hx2110. I’ve installed all the software that I think I’ll be using most. I’ve also updated my calendar and contacts on Outlook because the my Pocket PC is able to flawlessly synchronise data between it and my desktop PC’s Outlook. It’s amazing! Well, I’m done with the tweaking.

Lastly, we’ve borrowed the whole Season 4 of the West Wing and we only have one week to watch all of the 1-hour length episodes on the damned DVDs. So we have to find the time between watching all the usual stuff we watch on TV like Survivor, Battlestar Galactica, Desperate Housewives, CSI, NCIS, etc, etc, to watch the West Wing DVDs. Well, we’ve just finished watching all of it last night (as in 1:30 in the morning)!

So, I deeply apologise for being out of touch with everybody. After the internal audit tomorrow, I’ll have the time to catch up with everybody else’s blogs. And I might finally have the time to draw the comics, too. I wish there’s just more time to do everything.
