Being absent from the blogging world for a whole week made me feel completely ill at ease. I'm only glad to have recovered from my exhaustion after sleeping for 14 hours just now.
I've been exhausted for the whole week staying in the office till dark while having to fulfill my after-work commitments at the same time that I fell asleep almost immediately when I reached home.
I'm so glad that it is the weekend and also, the end of the most tiring and hectic workweek in the whole history of my short 8-month plus stay at this new organization.
It was the same for many of my colleagues in the same department. We had 2 events occurring on the same week with rehearsals for both and taking up 4 days of the week. On top of that, we were also busy with a few meetings as well as another major task involving our vendors. That took up almost the entire work week and we still had our primary job tasks to balance.
In addition, I took on the task of being a co-emcee for an event yesterday which my senior manager had assigned for me. It was the first time being an emcee for a somewhat major event and I was initially very apprehensive about taking up this task and embarrassing myself and my senior manager in front of many important people. Even though most of my good friends would consider me articulate, I am one who waver and falter when in front of a huge mass of people. I even suffer from stage fright at times.
Hence, you could imagine my relief when the event was finally over yesterday with many of my colleagues and a few important people commending me for a job well done. I would not be have been able to helm it that well if not for my extremely competent and encouraging co-emcee. There are lots to emulate from her in terms of work competence and personality. I'm only glad to have made a new friend for she is one of the sweetest and kindest person I've ever known.
Well, I think the 14 hour sleep just now wasn't enough to replenish all the lost sleep coz I'm already feeling sleepy as I'm typing this. I would probably morph into a pig once more and hit the sack after this post.
PS: Thank you all who left me birthday wishes. You made my day. *blows kisses* I will get back to all of you real soon!
