Ok, before I go on with this piece I would like to clarify two things:
1. I am NOT a lazy bum
2. I have amazing bosses…they drive me crazy sometimes, but they are great guys.
Having said that, I am sure you are wondering why I am saying they must not see this piece I am writing, well, I just got back from a training in London, and I took some extra days off to make up for the gruelling past month, when I had to be at work even on weekends! So its not really like it was a vacation, more like taking back my lost weekends. So, you would expect me to be all alive and up to my duties, I am up and alive but I feel so mentally and physically exhausted, I wake up each morning and I do not feel like being here at work.
I am on a mental low, which just makes work feel like going through the motions, on Fridays I am the first to scream TGIF! (Thank God Its Friday) and on Monday morning, I have a face that say OSIM! (Oh S**t Its Monday)
Like I said already, I am not a lazy person, which is one reason why I hate this feeling, it makes me feel inadequate, and I get easily cranky and irritable, so here I am getting to share it with everyone, because like Dolly Paton once said, she gets the world to share her hurts through her songs, and they don’t hurt that much anymore.
I stole that secret from her, and I hope I feel better about the stack of papers on my desk and the countless mails streaming into my inbox!
Gosh! Wish I could rent a beach house for a week, turn of my phones and BB, forget about the rest of the world and just be one with God and nature, I wish I could be on an island in Greece, On a Gondola in Venice, have dinner on a boat as I sail through la Seine and enjoy the View in France, or just bask in the awesomeness of Niagara Falls why am I even going too far? I wish I could be on one of those beach/boat houses in some remote part of Lagos….far faraway from the maddening crowd of the city itself…. I wish…Oh! how i wish...
