Bummer

I’m tired and I feel just slightly dissatisfied.

I feel like there’s something weighing me down, pressing on my shoulders. I don’t have the mood to do anything. It feels like someone has placed some heavy bricks on my shoulders and gripping my heart.

I can’t get a good night’s sleep. It’s hard to fall asleep at night, and I get jolted back awake really early in the morning.

Some changes have happened at work. In short, someone from my team has left the company. The management is insistent that they do not want to hire anyone to replace that person.

That person’s tasks have been divided between the remaining team members. Morale is down. Some of my other team members look like they want to leave too.

Bummer.

Two of us from the team will soon start on a major project, which takes 80% of our time from our current work. This means that my responsibilities have increase by almost 100% but my salary increased only 5%.

A lot of overtime and weekend work is expected of us because of the resource shortage.

Bummer.

I don’t have as much time to blog or visit other blogs now, because I come back all stressed and there’s so much house work to do at home.

Bummer.

The haze is back. Last night and this morning I’ve been suffering from uncontrollable sneezing. Can get MC from YenJai or not? Cannot? Thank goodness I’ve stocked up on Clarinase.

Bummer.

Income tax is due.

Triple bummer.

The good news is I think I’m qualified for another tax rebate. And this year I can walk next door to the income tax department because it’s so near my home.

Triple bummer downgraded to semi-demi-bummer.

The elections doesn’t seem transparent (to me, anyway). Tax dollars used to purchase indelible ink has benefited no one but the supplier, since it won’t be used anymore due to an alleged conspiracy.

But the question is, who are the conspirators? In any case, many more millions have gone down the drain.

Bummer.

The media continues to show bias to the ruling party. Double standards are practiced by the authorities.

Is there true democracy in Malaysia? I will answer this question next week.

The ruling party continues to promise billions of dollars to develop certain states. Don’t be fooled by these promises, you will only benefit from these billions if you are properly connected.

Then there’s the constant fear of another May 13 happening.

In conclusion, there’s just a lot of things going on in my mind. Baby Rachel is coming, and there’s so much we haven’t done yet.
