A Quickie

Hi guys! How have you been?

I'm stealing a few minutes from my very hectic schedule to write this. If you regularly read my blog (I'm so full of myself!), you'll notice my lack of posts lately. It's because I'm too busy to function. Nah, kidding. I function properly it's just that I've got a lot on my plate right now. I sometimes wonder why I do this to myself. Why do I take so many responsibilities? 

Allow me to rant. It's peak season in the rice world. It's like a crazy time where we run around like headless chickens trying to do so many things at once. I've been spending my days in the rice field. I've been there everyday for a month now. I start work at 7am and leave the field at 6pm. I'm under the sun the whole day. I use sunblock, umbrella, and protective clothing but I still got a mean uneven tan. I'm so dark I don't need to go to the beach to get a tan. Want to get a tan for free? Join me in the rice fields. 

My office and organizational works are pilling up since I'm mostly in the field. It's crazy. I'm crazy. 

I'm trying to organize and prioritize now and I'm drawing a blank. I need to sleep and rest because I have an early day tomorrow but who needs sleep when work is slapping you in the face to wake you up.

That's me and my summer so far. I'm excited for better things like evening out my tan in the beach with friends. Things are looking up!

How about you? How's summer so far?



  1. That sounds exciting! And hella tiring, given this HEAT.

  2. Not to mention I work for the Heat Stress group. No, not even close to joking. :)
