Work hard, party hard
August 11, 2015
Been awhile since I’ve felt this emotionally stable and content. Don’t know if I’m truly okay because my mood fluctuates and I do still think about stuff but at least now I feel like I will survive. Too crazy busy with work these few weeks so I don’t really have time to over-think and be emo anyway.
Lots of night shifts recently and aside from daily editorial work, there were events / campaigns / projects / tasks to work on concurrently, sometimes on my own time. Some days I was even in office from morning to morning. Been postponing my off days such that when I asked Noor how many off-in-lieus she owed me, she said, “Ten thousand days la, Cherlynn.” HAHAHA.
Not that I mind because I’m the kind who works well under pressure and the end result is always very fulfilling. Felt such a surge of pride upon seeing our logo at Super Summer last Thursday. That night was such a blast despite my drama hahahaha. Individual post and photos soon if I have time!
So many freebies, offers and activities this long weekend because of SG50 but I feel like I have barely made good use of them. No energyzzz. Limping everywhere due to my sprained ankle and I have the flu.
Solo morning shifts on Friday and Saturday (yeah, not everyone has a 4-day weekend, you know). But it’s okay, had a cinema marathon with Kumar, Kenneth and Baoying on Friday and a home movie marathon on Saturday. Stayed home all Sunday to recuperate.
Finally spent time with my mum yesterday (Aug 10) and we watched Ant-Man. I’d already seen it but I really like it and knew she would too. It’s sooo funny! Wanted to watch Fantastic Four but the reviews were worse than sucky. A superhero film being only 100 minutes long is enough to make me suspicious.
I loved Paul Rudd before Ant-Man ok you guys can have Chris Pratt instead #Clueless pic.twitter.com/Uixh2skfhO

Rewatched Clueless and The Dark Knight aka two of my all-time favourite movies last weekend. Woohoo simple pleasures. Good movies that you never tire of are so rare nowadays.
We had dinner at Ofira Amazing Thai Food. A little corner stall at Far East Plaza that’s been there for years and years. I remember how Darilene and I used to eat there after our many shopping sprees.
We shared pad thai but it was just very average.
Tom yum yum yum yum (sooo tasty and it cleared up my blocked nose)
Really fragrant beef fried rice. The meat is all inside.
See, I’m perfectly capable of blogging normal, non-emo things ok. Actually I have endless things to say but 1) I never know where to begin 2) my Twitter favourites and retweets speak more accurately than I ever can 3) is there really a point anymore because most people are just busybodies who are more curious than concerned and the one who should care doesn’t. And that’s okay too.
I wrote this in my mobile diary app few days back and I do mean it.
I wish you all the good and happiness in life. I really do.
