fragile hope


few things are more lovely
than the fragile hope of new beginnings

the end is in sight


just one more day left
and i can be done with this nightmare
to go back to actually sleeping through the night
living outside of my computer screen
and yes
get reacquainted with that elusive thing
called life.

if only ...


~ Lisa See, Peony in Love ~

came across these words today
making me recognise
yes
that was the moment
that regret seeped in

if only life had an undo button

changing perspective


If we look at our problems as problems, they’ll continue to hold us down. 
See them as blessings in disguise and that’s what they will truly become.

burning the midnight oil


and yet again
i seem to have taken on far too much work to complete within an impossible deadline.
crazy days and loooong nights of working
to get things finished by the end of the month.

the silver lining: only 10 weeks to go before vacation time.

four reasons why i like vegetable and noodle soup


1. made out of wholesome ingredients, it is good for you


2. cooked in one pot it is hassle free


3. the use of chopsticks means fun and so the usually fussy eaters forget that they don't like veggies


4. it is just darn delicious

just my luck


today on my schedule: 
four hours of teaching + an hour long meeting where i am expected to give a presentation

so it is just my luck
that i wake up with painfully swollen lymph glands under my jaw
that make even swallowing painful
let alone trying to talk

but if i cancel today and call in sick
it means i have to find five extra hours  in the next fortnight
to make up for the missed classes
in an already nightmare schedule

not feeling well is the worst
