I worked 8 hrs almost nonstop at the office on my first day back after 3 weeks of break. Wooo! I was anxious on whether I can focus and accomplish what I need to finish before Friday… mock interview scheduled with my mentor. When I started, I was a bit stressed as there’s more materials than I anticipated. Fortunately, I was able to focus and finish reading them all before 5pm. It left me a bit confused about the 5 countries I studied about… but well… at least I got a sense of their issues while I still can’t pronounce them. Grrrr…..
Two surprises: a colleague left me chocolates as my birthday gift! YAY! That’s always welcomed. And then I got another interview request for someone in Africa. That’d be the 4th interview…. adding more stress/excitement. I’ve only been in Africa once (Tanzania) for tourism, so it would be good to explore that part of the world for few years.
The food I ate kept my energy level stable… I felt encouraged that I’m “cracking” the blood sugar code. hahaha… see my daily recount in instagram.
Once I got home, I had to ask my husband to leave me alone for few minutes as I collect my brain cells…. he wasn’t too happy about it but he let me. The girls were still on a playdate, last one before class starts.
As I rubbed moisturizer to Lizzy’s eczema spots, I asked her who takes care of you the most? She said: mama, but also papa. mmm…. basically mama. 😀 I took a bread from my reading and just hugged her for a while… we both almost fell asleep…. best relaxant ever! 😀
