I was going over my calendar this morning and found that I will not have a free week until Mid-September. By this I mean, I am doing either business travel, travel back and forth between my two places or participating in day-long meetings and the like. I barely have time to head off to the restroom. I am starting to get a little bit tired. That’s normal, right? Just yesterday, I had to tell a colleague I just could not muster the energy to head out to a last minute evening event. I usually give everything my all and then some, but I have reached the point where I would gladly just look at a blank wall for 5 – 10 minutes.
With that level of tiredness in which I find myself, I am back to walking into walls again. I am a very clumsy person. I walk into chairs, walls and poles on a regular basis. Or at least you used to when I was younger. Now, the clumsy me is back again. This week I have walked into my balcony door twice. I blame this partly on my non-stop meetings and level of engagement. Work has me tired. I also blame this partly on my lack of mojitos. I have not had a mojito in weeks now. Maybe even months. How can I let this situation continue?
To make matters worse, I had to get a new cell phone recently. My phone decided to throw a major temper tantrum, overheated and stopped functioning. Yes, I am still talking about my old cell phone and not many of my past colleagues. I had a major moment of panic when I realized my phone was no longer functional. I use my phone to review documents, answers emails, and find an Uber ride. Occasionally, I use it to talk to others as well. I can’t live without my phone and immediately went about getting a new one. I got the Samsung S7 Edge. Have you seen the television advertisements for that phone? sadly and happily I came to find out that what they advertise a the phone’s capabilities are real. In one such advertisement, a rapper is shown pouring Champagne onto said phone. It’s big selling point being that it is waterproof. Well, it is truth in advertising, I dropped my phone in the tub. I have splashed water all over the phone. My phone keeps on going. I have to be happy about that. If only I didn’t need it to be waterproof.
