别了,我的懒人生涯

I am tired physically. I am exhausted mentally. I am on the verge of a complete breakdown. (Oh God, am I dying? My stomach hurts! I can’t breath! I must be dying!!! Damn, haven’t seen the movie [Napoleon Dynamite] yet. I hate to die young. Wait a second, am I just too hungry? Is the tie just a little too tight? OK, take a deep breath. Hmm.. I guess I am not dying then. Somewhat disappointed though.)

The workload eventually catches up with me. I can no longer afford fooling around at work now. Now I need to bring my “A” game to the table to please the people around me. My brain has to run at its full capacity to learn and grow to meet my boss’s high-but-reasonable expectations. I finally have to pay the price for my previous three years of underachievement. I could be so much more polished and resourceful if I took the job more seriously during the past several years. I have to admit that I feel more or less regretful at this very moment. From now on, I have no choice but to elevate my work-spirit level from Blue to Red (please refer to the Homeland Security Advisory System for more clarification). I will change for the better; I promise!

(Does it mean no more XBOX? Hell no, are you kidding me?)

hmm, if everybody starts to 'whining' on the blog, I guess I will stop coming to this site.
come on, there is good time and there is bad time, let's all stop spreading this negative sentiment around, it is worse than flu!
Hang in there pal, you are not alone.

My deepest sympathy to you and people close to you! But we are on the same boat though, my new boss will start his first day next week, have to kiss good-bye to my good old days!

Great, viva, thank you for your support and sympathy, as always. Your comments make my heart warm and I am deeply touched.
OK, let’s take a look again. You expressed your resentment toward whining by whining yourself about the fact that I was whining. En, very convicing.

Is this because you suddenly remembered that you bossed mentioned
"I think you could use more training" recently ?

Instead of saying "That's interesting" or "I'm a bit overloaded at the moment" you decide to say "I love a challenge"?

good point about viva you know "he's somewhat insensitive"

play game force your mind runs a little bit faster, as least for me.

Y'all should stop right here, I'm the one who has a legitimate reason to whine. I had been in the situation of unnable to find my way home or to work for 3 times, totaled 7 hours, in the past 31 hours. I'd been so lost that I had to fill my tank twice in the past 48 hours. I am beyond depressed.
