Tiger In the Making....

Oh dear. It has been a long week. And as you can see, as the emotion goes into turmoil, the more entries I make. This week, the "enterichter" has gone off the seismic scale.

It has been a roller coaster week. Really happy adrenalin endorphin driven days followed by depressing depache mode days.

Today was a mixed bag. Started off with "Boss to Subordinate" confrontation which ended WITHOUT any slamming doors or stomping feet. I think I've learned to keep my cool. Previously when I had to confront a collegue, I would get tongue tied and heart pounding in my throat. It didn't happen this time. Quite proud of how I handled the situation. Pat myself on the back....

We then visited the new campus. Lovely place and hopefully can move in before the year end. Maybe a corner office?....In my dreams. A room with a window would do.

In the afternoon, it was teaching rounds. Again, I managed to make another cry.

Look, I am not anywhere a fierce looking nor fierce acting person. I do expect a level of performance, outcome and I do run a tight ship. Ok, am I spelling out myself as the super B*!@& boss.......???

Shoes, Bananas and Pointlessness

It is going to be another long night. 20 papers to whiz through before Friday afternoon. We'll see how we go. And, as long as I am up, may even catch the Spain Portugal game later.

But just to side track the mind a little, I think I need some "time out" from the papers and just let my mind roll free for a few minutes.

Bananas. Yes, my mind is rolling free and it's thinking about bananas. Well, it was actually what my daughter wanted this evening. Apparently, the only way that she can run very fast for her sprint tomorrow at the school sports day is by eating bananas. And by having a pair of new running shoes. So, being the mummy that I am, we went out after dinner and we bought a pair of light running shoes...... and bananas.

Well, that was a pointless story. Maybe I'll come up with a better pointed story later.

2am thinking.....

It is 2.04am monday morning. As the Euro 2012 fever continues, my son insists that we watch this early morning game. Its going to be a good one.

I suppose I have taken up the multifaceted role in bringing up the children. My teenage son needs that father figure and some buddy time to talk about sports and stuff. I am glad that I do sincerely enjoy sports, so its no big issue. But he needs more, and I can see that being more evident as the days go by.

Am I being selfish for staying unmarried after 9 years? I do enjoy the "freedom". Not freedom to hu-ha & party & mingle type of freedom....on the contrary. I spend less time socialising now than ever! Just don't feel comfortable about it. Even going to weddings are a torture. Anyway, when it comes to freedom, it means more towards being able to decide for myself and the kids without having to think of another person. Downside: having to decide for myself and the kids without having the opinion and help of another person.


Just a 2.04am thought.


This is surely a sign of total independence. I can now open the king of fruits on my own!
