I Need a Vacation

I think my mind is turning into mush. At work, I’m working on this project that doesn’t seem to be all that complicated when I look at it from a disconnected point of view (that is, when I pretend that I’m not the person working on the project). But as it is, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by it as well as mildly confused. It’s like I’m juggling balls in the air and trying my best not to drop any balls.

Thankfully, the Christmas Season is only a couple of months away. I already filled out an annual leave application for December just to so I have a better chance of getting it approved. I mean, if I submit it in the last minute, a lot of other people in the office might have already submitted their leave applications that mine would get denied.

I believe (and hope) that I’ll have finished this project by the end of this week. I can’t wait to be done with it, frankly. Hmm… It’s a good thing I don’t have to wait for Christmas to get a bit of a break.

Although All Saints’ Day isn’t a public holiday here unlike in the Philippines, there’s still the November 1st public holiday due to the Melbourne Cup. Woohoo! I’m glad to be living in Melbourne. Oh, and for those of you who don’t know, the Melbourne Cup is basically a day for horse-racing. Nice, isn’t it? Here are more details.

And if I’m lucky, maybe I’ll be called for jury duty. I know that under normal circumstances, being called for jury duty isn’t a thing people generally look forward to, but in this case, I welcome any chance to be elsewhere even for a day or two.
