Bundle of nerves
February 3, 2015
Chope chope post because I have to wake up at 5.30am and reach the airport by 7am for my flight. Except that I can’t sleep because my insomnia has been terrible recently. Grrr maybe because I keep over-thinking things again. Trying to be chill and not give a fuck but it’s so hard because I do care.
Okay okay but this is not a angsty post. And I’m not emoing. In fact, I’m feeling quite fine… other than being a bundle of nerves over my trip. And no, I’m not complaining at all because I couldn’t be more grateful and glad to be going. It’s fully sponsored, you know?! I just feel nervous, me being me, because:
– My first work trip
– My first trip out of Asia
– I’m the youngest there
– No one else from my company is going
– I don’t know anyone there (though I did meet some of them at a briefing)
– I think the rest are going with at least one person they know?
– I am so ditzy / forgetful / socially awkward / so not independent
– Like with every trip, I feel like I forgot to pack something…
– What if I can’t sleep there, wake up late and delay everyone?
– Will the time difference help me or ruin me further?!?!?
Very minor rubbish that aren’t issues at all. I’m just stressing over nothing as usual. First time packing so many ‘nice’ (i.e. not my usual shorts) clothes for such a short trip. We’re flying Business Class and the whole itinerary just sounds really grand 😛
Everyone at the briefing last Friday (Jan 30) was so nice and hospitable! They even had gifts prepared for us. The long box contains a selfie stick and the one in a square box is the adapter. They think of everything!! I’m even getting a SIM card so that I have data 24/7 when I’m in New Zealand O_O
Another random bag of gifts from I don’t even know where… Kumar passed them to me. And people wonder why I love my job 🙂 Sometimes I think I might be obsessed…
Here’s a photo so you all don’t forget me 😛 Taken on 13 Jan (according to my phone?) when I just reached home from work and was feeling so tired… look at my dark eye rings and unkempt fringe.
I’ll be back on Friday morning and joining the rest of my colleagues for a media dinner with the SPF in the evening. Sigh I freaking love February already, there’s so much to look forward to. Anyway I really need to go to bed to recharge myself now so bye! Hope all goes well.
