6:59 am – Bed
The alarm is already snoozed twice, and if I don’t wake up now, there’s a high chance that I might end up in an Olympic run, chasing the bus.
7:34 am – Bus Stop
The bus is late. Gearing myself to run after the train.
8:45 am – near office
Hmmm what should I eat for breakfast – a vege roll or avocado tomato toast or vege bun or tuna bun. Choices choices choices.
8:58 am – office bathroom
Damn all that running has turned my beautiful winged eyes into a goey smudge. Rub a dub dub.
9:00 am – at my desk

I can’t figure out this redux stuff. Why why why am I so stupid?
After spending a perplexing amount of time pulling out my hair, I badly need some tea.
And the day goes on, as I switch between trying to understand Redux functions, Java 8 streams and sincerely avoiding any actions that would make my pairing partner burst into flames. I was already badgering him with hundreds of questions.
Like I wrote before, we pair program, which means we do all the coding, testing and review together, at the same desk. We have two different monitors, two keyboards and mouse. One person codes while the other one watches and reviews , and vice versa.
Lunch time! The break out area was buzzing today. I joined my colleagues and their discussion on the current hot topic that every migrant is worried about – Australian citizenship exam.
About 80,000 citizenship applications are on hold as the government is still debating whether to make IELTS mandatory for everyone who is applying for citizenship. So if this law is passed I might have to do some serious studying.

We are battling some funky errors and our screens are filled with loads of exceptions, scary enough to stop our super manager right on his track. “That looks hot”, he comments before walking away. 😂
I am a free bird… For today.
Another run to the train station to catch the train back home.
6:30 pm – home
Ommmm… Time to unwind.
Stretch… Forward fold… Bend backwards… Stretch more… Ouch!
OK stop stop… Take it easy.
Sometime after 7:00 pm
Husband reaches home and finds me with my feet on my face, and back of the knee cupping my shoulders. I wave a hi. He simply stares.
We are having a delicious meal of vegetable oats, topped with omellete and some garlic pickle. And watching a rerun of Small Wonder.
Oh my freaking god it’s midnight. I was supposed to sleep two hours ago.
No prizes to guess what I did the whole time – Blogging.
So how was your day.
