This cartoon sort of sums out how I have been feeling since my father died.  Makes me wonder what is the point of life, really.  Coupled with  inexplicable waves of sadness (which usually comes over me especially when I am exercising) and periodic anxiety attacks about death.  It’s really strange – I haven’t felt like this or thought about death since I was 10.

On a less depressing mode, I had a huge 3 hours working lunch today.  Loads of details discussed and too much food consumed.  I didn’t want to eat so much but I thought my hosts would be offended if I didn’t finish my food.   Hopefully, my colleague will follow up on the details and I won’t have to do too much.  I was so stuffed I could hardly eat dinner.  Had a bowl of Myojo Chicken Abalone instant noodles for dinner.  Before dinner I went jogging around Bukit Batok Nature Reserve today.  I ran from Jalan Jurong Kechil all the way up to Rail Mall and looped back from Hillview.  The weather was cool but the air way too moist.  No wonder the condominiums around this area are really mossy.   Before coming back, I did some pull ups, dips and push ups at the exercise corner in the Nature Reserve.  But it was really dark so I didn’t linger and jogged back home.

I have been feeling depressed and down recently.  My mood has even slightly affected my appettite and sleeping habits.  Yesterday I only ate just a slice of toast with cheese, anchovies and red peppers on top with a glass of milk for dinner.  That’s very little for me.  And this morning I woke up at 6.45 am and couldn’t fall back asleep.  Surprisingly, I was pretty OK at work today although I didn’t get that too much done.

 A friend told me to set short term goals to get myself out of this blue mood.  And hence the existence of this blog. Maybe writing would prove to be catharthic for me.  Who knows?  Just thought I would give it a go.
