The First Week of 2017


First day of work in 2017. Of course everyone got sick due to the random sleeping hours as well as the cold. I have been trying to face work with a different attitude. Which is less time spent for whining. Not that I hate the work that I do, it’s just a thing to do when something goes boom. Just say “FUCK THIS”, curse at it. It won’t change anything but the frustration dose become less somehow. But it’s time to be more positive and remind myself that I can do this. Today I picked up an order from a department store here. It’s a Proenza Schouler wallet. And spent about an hour after that contemplating whether or not I should keep it. I even involved my co-workers into this decision. I ended up not keeping it though because who am I kidding, who uses long continental wallet anymore nowadays?


Planned to go to the gym after work since the past weekend. And surprise surprise, it didn’t happen! I decided to stay home and bring my work home. Although I ended up not doing traditional work, I researched a lot about Angular2 and Webpack (work related topics). I went home during the lunch break to cook myself some warm lunch (we got complimentary lunch at work such as sandwiches and some variants of salads). From time to time having warm meal for lunch is really enjoyable.


Finally booked my birthday trip! I’ll be traveling to Thailand and Malaysia for about 14 days. Starting from flying in to Bangkok for a transfer to Phuket and continuing to Kuala Lumpur, back to Bangkok for the remaining three days, and finally fly back to Amsterdam on a Sunday. All the airplane tickets as well as accommodations have been booked. So basically the only thing to do is wait until April, pack, and leave! I’m very very excited about this!

I have been sleeping extra late than usual since Sunday 1st and now finally my body is telling me to cut the crap and just rest. Also in conjunction with the first day of auntie flo’s visit, I wasn’t just feeling it. Today I finally decided to get a haircut. When I arrived at my apartment building, I popped into a hair salon downstairs first to make an appointment. I have been meaning to get a trim for the longest time! Now that I live practically above a hair salon, I should be more diligent with getting a trim regularly.

Last working day of the week! Wheeeeee! Weirdly enough, I didn’t remember that it was Friday until 3pm. The whole day morning I thought it was Thursday! Not that much stuff to do work related so I had a lot of chit chat with my co-workers and attended a presentation class (in-house). And before lunch I had a small meet-up with Deo to get a cup of coffee downstairs (of my office). It’s always nice to hang out with him :) And now I’m waiting for the rice to cook and I’ll have dinner afterwards. Possibly will spend the rest of the night chillin’ or making prototype app with Angular 2.

How was your week? Do you feel like it’s 2017 or still hangover of 2016?
