Progress Report

Or not, actually. But I just remembered that's what they used to call it back in school.

So things are going quite well. Still not as adept in the workplace as I'd like to be, frequently feeling intellectually-challenged but I suppose I literally did ask for it.

Trying to get things in motion without thinking too much. I want to do away with the checklists, do away with the mental notes, do away with all the talk and talk and talk and nothing to show for it.

Maybe that's why I haven't been blogging much.

So a gym membership is in the works, all that's left is for me to sign and pay up. Motorbike lessons already paid for, just have to book myself into a class and get the system going. The bank account will suffer slightly, but its already doing amazingly well after only four months of work so I think I can breath a little easier. A certain Mr. Lim from Standard Chartered is supposed to do lunch with me to talk about a savings account, and Issue 2 is off to the printers and the next edition is so much better than the first.

So now its all of the above, plus Issue 3. Plus throw in some shopping because I still want more shoes.

Work is interesting. I'm not doing what I'd like to be doing, but I'm glad to be even doing anything at all. A little dabble into the magazine/fashion world and at least now there are some brand names I can pronounce although I will never ever ever remember how to say 'hermes' because its just one of those impossible words. It really doesn't make any difference because I would not spend money on branded clothes. But I suppose knowledge takes on many forms, and it doesn't hurt to know.

So yeah that's that. Cats are doing well. The older one is eating well again, although she's still heart-breakingly skinny but as long as she has the energy to hunt for cockroaches I suppose everything's alright.
