Life and Me!

Wed Jan 27:

I hope there’s no limit to how many page breaks I can have, or if there is it’s above 366. Hooray for Hump Day! Hump Day should be a national holiday – Every Wednesday you get the day off work! But I wouldn’t want a holiday in the middle of the week, unless I also have the previous or following two days off as well. Cheers to a five day weekend!

Who wants to wake up to classic rock in the morning? Me! πŸ™‚ I tried not to turn it up too loud before 8 am. Coffee? Who needs it when you got music and dancing feet! I was born to be wild and free, like the wind! Summer breeze wind, not fast convertible fuck up my hair wind or windchill, I’m about to freeze to death wind πŸ™‚ – I knew a lady named Breeze btw. Down on the Corner by CCR.

I broke my fast at 2:30 pm with yogurt. Not good! I decide to make the broth for Pho tonight. Tomorrow we will have it for dinner. I went to Galleria to pick up the meats, but I had all the spices in my jars already – I’m so proud of myself:

Star anise? Check!
Cinnamon sticks? Check!
Cardamom pods? Check!
Cloves? Check!
Coriander seeds? Check!
Fish sauce? Fuck yeah!

Everyone has onions and ginger, so I’m not counting those. When I have a huge pantry, I will sort everything by region.

I asked our Chief Architect if he likes me, and he looked at me like, “What???!!!” Then I said, “Do you like working with me?” He didn’t say yes or no. He looked puzzled and somewhat indifferent. (at least that was my take, sometimes I can’t tell what people are thinking via body language). He was probably like, “Where is this coming from? UGH! Where’s the CTO? Why is this woman bothering me?!” We were waiting for him to show up before starting our meeting.

Then I said, “Is there anything I can do to make our working relationship better?” He said he knows he can be impolite, and if he thinks of anything I can do, he will tell me. For whatever reason, I felt the need to ask him. I told him that I appreciate his candour (and I genuinely do). I believe we have to confront our issues and each other in an open, honest and kind manner to solve our problems without bandaid solutions.

Who knows, maybe I just feel he doesn’t like me because we are sometimes at odds and come at things from very different angles – Do Eastern Europeans even care about liking their co-workers? I will ask the Office/Release/Support Manager in Belarus; cause we’re cool like that πŸ™‚

I figured out why I am having a hard time with my Japanese poem – it’s cause I wrote it in English first. I can’t even speak the language fluently yet and I don’t know all the rules, how am I supposed to translate!!! So … what I am going to do is start from scratch and write it in Japanese to begin with!

I forgot to tell you:

  1. My boss liked my blue crater drawing so much he will use it for wallpaper on his phone! Isn’t that cool! πŸ™‚ Lately everything I look at, I wonder if I can draw it! Once the lessons are done, I think I have to move on to still life but not sure! Hopefully at the end of the last lesson he will tell me what to do next.
  2. I bought an Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer – It arrived on Monday and now I have three Instant Pots in the house. Tuesday or Wednesday I made pork belly, those guys liked it but I think it could have been better. There’s a Korean pork belly show on Netflix. I got the Air Fryer cause I want to make jerky, bought the meat for it today too (I’ll let you know how that turns out).
  3. I love you! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Somebody told me it’s cold at night in the desert! You should watch Tumbbad (2018).
