The Killing Time

I received an Excel file containing 7000+ entries and I’m supposed to go through each and every one of them.

Let’s be frank, this job is killing me slowly. Every morning when my alarm wakes me up I dread the day and try to burrow in my bed and catch a few more extra winks. It felt like waking up for morning school again. The same dread.

When I plonk myself in my cubicle I’m usually wide awake by then. So I try my level best to settle a string of entries in one go before the restlessness kicks in. Then I give myself a short break and it’s back to the remaining 6000 plus entries again.

I felt so listless and bored at one time that I just whipped out my trusty sketch book (Thank GOODNESS I always bring it with me!) and started doodling with the ol’ faithful Berol pen. It started from the bottom right of the page and has since occupied a third of the A4 paper. It’s madness! It’s not some crazily intricate artwork like a page out of a Star Wars concept book, nor is it going to look anything like an Artgerm work but I really can’t wait to finish it and fill up the whole page! 😀

Survival far outweighs job satisfaction right now since I’m put on hold by the scholarship deal. I’ll have to wait, then wait some more. So I might as well let somebody pay for my time and earn the extra rubles. And THEN doodle some more. 🙂

P/S: When I’m done I’ll scan it in and post it here. 😉
