sleepless in manila

It’s 5:10 in the morning and I have been up for 20 hours running.

I tucked myself in bed around 2 am, as usual, but found my mind lingering to thoughts of things at work: how I am delayed in the promo I was supposed to roll out last April Fool’s, another promo is set to roll-out in mid-April, a children’s fashion show at a local hotel a day after I arrive from Hong Kong, a month-long shoes and bags fair this May. Restless, I rolled and tumbled in bed, until I peeled myself off it and got my Powerbook whirring again.

I am officially beginning to hate my job.

    I think I wanna cry… :-) Thanks for all the sweet sympathies and the warm words. I am slowly rising out of the situation, but am still in knee-deep shitload of work. Definitely looking forward to my short trip next week, until then, I have to finish three projects. Ugh!

    Jay, hopefully for Madonna’s Confessions Tour in Wembley Arena. Aaaaaaaaaaah! I want I want I want!
