10-Minute Warning XVIII

Well, what can I say here in under 10 minutes?

Frankly speaking, I’m so lazy to write right now. But like I said before in a previous post, I don’t want to ruin my blogging streak. I have written 42 posts so far, and I can’t stop now. So, let me just tell you what happened in my life today.

Mother, Father, and I ran errands for almost the whole day. We paid a lot of bills. We had a nice lunch at Manam (that Buko Pandan Sago was refreshing). And now we cap off the work week with a great action movie, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. That’s the short version of what happened today.

Maybe I should write something about laziness to write on the next post. And I should upload a featured header image on this very post tomorrow.

And time’s up.

10-Minute Warning X

So, what can I type on this post in under 10 minutes?

Well, today I didn’t do much at work. I only photocopied a few papers for less than 5 minutes, and that’s it. The minimal task for today kind of makes it up for all the workload that I had last week. I’m expecting a bit more work in the coming days especially since it’s almost the end of March, but today I’m enjoying the slacking off. I didn’t get to nap this afternoon, but having the chance to do so makes me so happy.

Speaking of napping, since I started working for the family business, I feel like I lack sleep during work days, Monday to Friday. Perhaps I got used to sleeping more than 9 hours during my unemployment period. But one trick that removes my sleepiness in the morning is taking a cold bath and drinking any caffeinated drink. Lately, I usually drink a Nescafé 3-in-1 or Creamy White in the morning. Thank goodness for coffee.

Tonight I will walk and jog with Younger Brother at Track 30th, BGC. I asked Mother if she could join us, but she said she feels lazy. That’s all right. I can’t force her. And as long as I can walk, jog and do aerobics at least 3 times per week with or without company, I’m good. However, I hope Mother can join us next time in exercising. It’s for her health. And she doesn’t have to do a full workout; walking around a jogging path is good already.

And time’s up.

10-Minute Warning IX

OK. So, what can I type here in under 10 minutes?

Today is World Sleep Day, and I lack sleep. Isn’t that ironic? And I need to sleep early tonight because I will be joining a survey with Father tomorrow morning. This is the 1st time I will be working on a Saturday since… 2014, I think?

In my 1st and previous job, my work schedule is from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. But there was this one time that I needed to work on a Saturday. That counted as overtime work. And the funny thing is that we worked beyond that overtime. I got paid well after that, but it was an exhausting experience.

Anyway, I’m so tired right now. And I tried to take a morning nap while I’m in the car with Mother and Father. (We were on our weekly visit to one of our clients’ offices.) But I can’t get that perfect nap. So I didn’t bother trying again by drinking a Cold Brew Malt from Starbucks Reserve. At least I got to drink one of my favorite non-alcoholic drinks and that extra caffeine boost.

I’ll just sleep early tonight. Tomorrow I’m going to work with Father in the morning, and then go to a gig in the evening. My younger brothers’ band will be performing.

Hey, that rhymed.

And time’s up.
