Manic Monday...

These are the days when you wish your bed is already made...
- The Bangles

On a Monday night, I find myself in front of the computer doing some light research (while I'm writing this :p). It's the first day of second semester, and our kindly lecturer has given us our first assignment. What a way to welcome us back from a month long break!

I found myself this morning leading a short-staffed team. There were only three of us doing the work of five people! Oh well, it'll be good since everybody will be really busy. No time for bludging.

The results of the first semester came out today. I got a Credit on both subjects - not very happy about it. My boss was happy though, so I shouldn't complain too much. To the people who may not know the circumstances behind my decision to study again, my company sent me to do a post graduate degree. This means that as long as I pass my subjects, they will gladly pay for my tuition and other miscellaneous fees. This also means that the company is looking at promoting me later on, thus giving me more money! And what fool says no to money, 'ey?

Last night, I found myself in the company of Arnie and friends at the ever popular Crown Casino, not for the gambling but for the delicious buffet dinner that the Conservatory is known for - a full seafood, asian, western, and dessert buffet for A$58.50. It was a bit steep, but it was worth it.

The weekend has been busy, full of fun activities. Today has also been busy, full of not-so fun activities. Between school and work on a Monday and Friday, sigh... only I would have classes in the beginning of the week and the start of the weekend. 4:30 - 7:30 pm on both classes. Sigh...

It's just the start of the week and I'm already dead tired. I wonder how the rest of the week would fare?
