Being Sick Sucks!

Hi people :D

Yep, I'm still alive... luckily. I'm still sick, but I am feeling better. My throat and nose are almost all recovered... my throat is almost done hurting and my nose, not as stuffy anymore. Yay! So I'm at the last stage... where my body is kind of weak, my mind not that sharp and sweaty when I wake up... so being sick definitively sucks. I stayed home today and I'd like to do so tomorrow too, but I don't think I can :( I'd just like to recover all my energy before going back to work... but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen.

The worst is that there's a lot of havoc at work :( Lots of trouble btw some co-workers and my supervisor... so there's a lot of tension in the work atmosphere. Luckily, it's almost Christmas... sigh. I can't wait. By the way, the Indian girl at my work place that's on a contract - some of you will know who I'm talking about - is not getting her contract renewed. Sigh. So that is another problem too. It shouldn't be a problem... because we are not assured to be renewed at the end of the contract. The trouble is that knowing that she's not getting renewed and planning the year ahead (2008) and NOT TELLING HER. It just spells very unprofessional you know. By the way, the Christmas party on Friday? Boring. The food wasn't even that good and it was buffet style... so they were choosing tables to go to the buffet based on games. I mean, of course, you can't have so much ppl going at the buffet at once... but at the same time? You know. Ah well... it's in the past now.

I haven't been reading much... several reasons for it... I'm sick and tends to fall asleep. Also, I spent my whole week-end helping my friend with her model... I'll post pictures when she send them to me, but in my opinion, it won't be before Wednesday :P Deadline is tomorrow 5pm... and by that time, I can assure you she won't have slept for at least 48 hours :P Hard to be a student! :P Also, lately, I'm not sure which books to read... I have been re-reading Hikaru No Go again and again... but I still hope there'd be more to the manga. Finally, another reason I haven't been reading much is that I'm really in the mood for reading kung fu stories... from a particular author named Gu Long. See, those novels are in Chinese and they have been translated... the thing is that the translations aren't always great and accurate, but the worst, they're most of the time incomplete. So now I've found a website that has almost all of his work translated in viet - although I know that it sometimes differ from the Chinese version. My problem is that Gu Long is sometimes known to be depressive ^^; I've read some of his novels and wished to read the sequels, but at the same time, I'm afraid that reading his sequels will ruin the "endings" I had in mind. So it's a hard choice :(

So how was your week-end?


  1. Pretty good actually!
    Like you know, I was able to not only have fun making the little houses with you, but I got to relax too! I never felt that good since a long time! Thanks for coming! hehe

    Sunday, I got to chill too! But now, it's back to studying!

  2. Still sick? Hope you get better soon. Drink plenty of orange juice. Joey swears orange juice cures everything.

  3. Vivou - LOL, I'm glad that you had fun :P I can't wait to see how it all turns out :D Good luck for your exam!!

    Isabel - Yep, still sick... it just won't go away. I've been eating a lot of clementines... is it the same?

  4. I know about being sick! I've had Bronchitis for over a month and have had to go to the doctor's like 3 times!!! Grrr!

    I hope you feel better soon!

  6. Mollie - poor you! is that why we haven't seen you that much lately?

  7. Really hope you're feeling better now. :)

    The most depressing Gu Long novel I've read so far is "Siu Sap Yat Long". It's a torture reading about his heartache and love for Miss Sum. Have you seen the Felix Wong adaptation of the novel? Or the one with Athena Chu and Nicky Wu?

  8. Ugh, being sick does suck...I'm glad that you're on the mend though sweetie.

    My company Christmas party is this Saturday but I'm not going...just don't feel like I wanna, so I'm not going to.
