Workaholic

My family and many of my friends say that i am a workaholic. My mother once said to me that life is not just about work, but it's about many. She forbids me to work too hard because she worries that it will affect my health and my life. I actually know that she wants me to focus more on my life, finding the right woman and marry her as soon as possible. I told her for over a thousand time that I am still bloody young and there are so many things that I want to achieve before getting married. And work is one of them. Yeah, maybe I have a good job now but it doesn't mean that it's settled and there are nothing left to think about. There are lot of things to be learned in my career. That is why I think I work too hard.

Yesterday, i was asked by my boss to solve several complicated issues. Couple of my colleagues told me that those issues have never been solved due to some hanky-panky things that have been going on. It was almost 6.30 pm and I was browsing through some files to find the history of those issues when my colleagues came to me and told me to go back home, take a rest and continue having a headache solving those issues the next day. But, I couldn't. I don't know why I had to force myself and wanted to get things done immediately. That's me I think, a workaholic who should really learn to relax...

hey even when you ARE already married, the nagging continues - "when are you going to have a baby?" i mean seriously man, life is full of nagging. i wish people would mind their own bloody business and leave us alone!

it's okay to be a workaholic once in a while. especially considering where you work. but remember, you work to live, not live to work.

just don't overdo stuff. burnout is, unfortunately, common amongst our kind <--- chewah, 'kind'???

while you're young, work hard... play hard ;p
