in a slump

I’ve been neglecting this blog, among other tasks, for quite some time now and the guilt’s been building steadily.

It feels like I’m losing control over my hours or perhaps I’ve become lax at managing my days. It does feel like I’ve been wasting a lot of hours by just letting it pass by. How I wish I could call it resting. At least I’d feel recharged if that were the case. Continue reading “in a slump”

I was feeling accomplished when I left the office earlier. This motivated me to go out for a jog to feel even better about today.

And even though I ended up brisk walking for most of the time, it was still a good way to end the day –not to mention, ensure a good night’s sleep.

I realized late this afternoon that the sore throat wasn’t really affecting my breathing so I should have no problem with the jog.

My January sore throat involved clogged nose so I had difficulty breathing evenly during the jog. I barely logged runs in January-February because of the sore throat and clogged nose.

I needed to make up for all those missed runs – and more importantly, avoid getting sore throat again 😐

17758070_10211897671093077_1896022865_nThe client sent us a copy of the magazine we developed for them. There’s always that sense of fulfillment that one gets when one gets the actual copy of that publication you’ve been working on for some time.

It took two weeks and several (and I do mean several) revisions of the articles and layout before it was approved for publication.

This was one of the shortest work time we have accepted  for publication development – from concept development, article writing and editing, and layout.

17741103_10211897526089452_1789347900_nIt was one of those down days. By Friday, I was already feeling drained from the week’s tasks.

The day’s work required an extra push to get things done and I found myself counting the hours before the work week ended. I did end up staying after 5pm to wrap up the week’s tasks.

I needed a jog to feel better about today. I cannot end the work week feeling unproductive. A jog at least made me feel like I managed to do something for today.
