Compass gone mad

I am not myself today. I wonder what happened to me, or it could probably be due to PMS? We'll know if it happens a few days later. *LOL* I just feel sedentary, stagnant and largely pensive. Perhaps I have been so used to dealing with tight deadlines and gargantuan workloads that my new found freedom seems like a stranger to me. For the past few weeks, or as long as I can remember, I have been burying my nose in work and never having a good night's sleep. As if that is not bad enough, I had to deal with my assignments in class as well as my final year project. The trail is just endless. Today, however, I found out that my work project dateline has been extended. Not only 1 or 2 days, mind you, but 6 weeks! That's 42 freaking days! Suddenly I am lost. It's like all these while, the busy-ness of the day was the compass in my life, directing me to do what I should, no questions asked. And now, I don't have that business guiding me anymore... my compass has gone haywire, I need to realign myself. Gosh sometimes don't you just hate it when you rush and rush for a project dateline that is near impossible, thinking that you might just nail it, only to find out that in the end the deadline is extended. Efforts are almost wasted! *sigh* Anyway, I feel much better now after chatting with a good friend. Compass realigned and I am back on track, I hope.

P/S: Please tell me, what do you do to perk up your senses when you're just too tired or sleepy at work? Share with me ok! :)

Never had a situation like yours before. For me, the deadline is always suddenly shortened into improbable levels at the last possible minute and all carefully laid out plans (holidays, shopping, movies, etc.) went flying out the window. So, you should be thankful! Talking, eating, walking, coffee are the conventional methods of keeping your sensors firing when it's starting to slow down. For me, online sudoku or words unscrambler or a short msn with friends will do the trick. However, my motto is: if you're hungry, eat. If you're sleepy, sleep! :P
