Just over a week since I joined my new job and I am having troubles. Not in my job, but other than job but they affect my job. The biggest of them is my energy level. It seems to be going down once again. Three months ago, I started 10 minutes exercise on daily basis and it helped a lot to gain stamina. But as you know with the exercise routine. You just need a small reason to stop your exercise routine.
That small reason was that I was out of job. No more stamina needed to sit at home. So I stopped and it’s been 20 days now. After a week of job I realized I need to start it again. This job is like working in hell(I was there for a while and will be spending my afterlife there) . I hardly have time to sit. They have a office space for me with a working fan. That is a luxury when you are working on site. But I don’t have time to use this at full.
This Sunday is acting like recovery day for me. I was too much tired out of the weeks work. There is some work going on site today also. I won’t be there on site. If I work today then, I won’t be able to give my best for the next week. A day off is much needed. When I woke up in the morning it was 10 am already. I am feeling good and relaxed today. This burnout happens with almost all working group. It was regular for me until three months back when I was doing exercise routine.
Looks like I have to start it again. Getting up early in morning is a pain, especially when it’s winter. I have to do it. A nice habit I got from working on this site is making a checklist of things. I’ll have to do the same for my exercise. Just 10 minutes in morning and then 10 minutes in evening make things much better. Good thing that I can have my lunch at home since the site I am working is near. That adds to healthy food, healthy diet. I’ll have to plan a better diet now. I’ll be going through all my bookmarks for the diet blogs. If you have good diet tips then feel free to comment. Just remember I am 100% vegetarian.
As for the Sunday, I had decided to sleep till 10am and then carry on with my projects. But things never go the way I plan. Hindrance is usual now. Not worried much about working in evening or night for personal work. What hurts is waking up early, very early on Sundays. I woke up at 5:15am. ;-(
Reason was a religious ceremony. This occurs every year and once in a year. All those who have same surname as my gather at a temple 20km away from my home. Most likely this event gathers a crowd of 50-60 peoples. Earlier it was much more than this. We gather, have some chat, sometimes even play. This event brings us closer.
After preparing and working much for the event, I’ve become too tired. I thought of taking a leave. Nevermind. I’ll get it next time. For now I’ll get some rest and sleep well.
Alas… It’s Sunday again. It is a day we all wait for. Especially the working people. For past few Sundays it has been pretty troublesome and I was unable to get some refreshment. Today it looks to be a perfect Sunday. I wanted a good sleep, so I slept early yesterday. Early for me is 11.30pm. My nose was running and thought better to sleep early.
I don’t know why this happens, but I happen to wake up early on Sundays. For last few weeks. That is because of the exercise I have started. Today I gave a break, ignored, and slept only to be waked up by my friends call. Woww!!! Perfect way to wake me up. Why I don’t switch of my phone? It is fun to wake someone when he is having good sleep. I do such crime many time. Now I get it in return. It is said that you pay for all your sins here and in this life only.

After a long gap I had one good weekend. This year has been totally boring in terms of enjoyment. So do the weekends. They come and they go. I only “use” them to complete my sleep which I don’t get enough on weekdays. I sleep with the beginning of next day. That is why I don’t like anyone or anything interfering in my Sunday sleep. This time it was different and I had to go.
One of my friend is planning to build a new house. He wanted my advice as I am suppose to be a Civil Engineer. His house is around 30-35 Km from my. He is my cousins friend first. So my cousin asked me to come on Saturday for a weekend fun. Our weekend fun is limited and not unlimited. There are hardly unlimited fun times. This was another limited. There were seven of us including me and we had dinner and then Baskin Robbins.
I don’t know why I stopped going for weekends. Earlier my weekends were planned. Especially last year. Sometimes with this cousin and the other time with my friends or may be colleagues. That used to take junk out of my mind and I am fresh. Now you have to read all that junk here in the form of nonsense.
This fun is just for 3-4 hours but acts as charge. I am thinking of continuing with such weekends. I am jobless on Sundays most of the time. Such weekends will fill that thing. I wouldn’t have faced this problem if I was drinking at least beer. One group of my friend celebrate such “wet” weekends every now and then.
Till I taste my first beer…
My words are dried up and I cannot find right combination of those. There is strike tomorrow. If that succeeds I’ll get a day off. Let’s see what happens. Till I am fresh I’ll talk in pictures. Anyone has suggestion on how to work continuously without any change in sleep? I would love to hear that.
