Weekend Procrastination and Things to Panic About

Let's begin with the worries

1. There's only three days left before I begin my three day adventure with a friend, an acquaintance and a stranger in the land of the hornbills, and I've been scouring the web looking for information about the places we could visit, how to get around etc, and the news is not good... apparently, activity ceases at about 7pm, and public transportation may not be available. So do we rent a car? I don't know...

2. I tried doing some packing last night... because I know for a fact that I cannot trust doing anything on work nights, especially since I won't be around at work on Thursday and Friday, I'll have to work extra to cover the lost days... which when you look at it, seems to mean that taking a vacation or break sort of beats the purpose...

3. The combination which I thought I set for my luggage does not seem to be working. Now I can't lock my luggage, and although I'm not exactly carrying anything expensive - it's a semi-backpack thing, I guess... this worries me.

4. Forget the combination lock... I actually overworked my thumb last night trying the combinations one by one until I gave up... a small lock can't be located either at the moment.

5. This is not related to the trip, but Kodak Gallery is being a pain in the ass (with threats to delete the pictures I've stored there) with their minimum $4.99 thing... to be honest, if I was a resident in the United States, this will be a non-issue at all, but since I live here, I don't see how I'm going to purchase stuff from the Kodak Gallery shop!

6. With all these panicking, I've decided to procrastinate... Level 10 of Sneeze! seems to be an impossible task at the moment...

  1. OMG! You've having such a hard time. Reading your post, it seems like the world is coming to an end and you've got the power to do something but dunno what! Time is running out...

    Panic at its greatest :P

  2. Breathe! You're supposed to be going on a little relaxing trip. Make the prep part of the fun!

  3. Packing is work, but it's alwats kind of exciting because it means the trip is almost there.

  4. Still got three days what, plenty of time ... LOL! I always leave things to the very last minute, then panic like hell, more fun that way ... LOL!

  5. You didn't say where in the land of hornbill you'll be going to but in any case, public transportation is not as realiable as Semenanjung or even as comfortable. It's alright if you're in for an adventure though! If you have the budget, renting a car might be an easier, stress-free option. Having been said that, things are not that far away in my homeland and worthy destinations usually have shuttles from the city center. =) Hope that kills the stress a bit!

  6. rakesh: In my little world, yes...

    travis: Thanks for the reminder... 'takes a deep breath' :)

    citizen: It is exciting, and also the hardest part... which is why I prefer starting a day or two earlier so I can buy stuff I don't have :)

    Nick: Yeah, I know a few people who wait till the evry end to pack... I can't seem to do that, though... :)

    Mad Penguin: I'm headed towards Kuching. The info about public transportation was obtained from a website... And thank you for the info... shuttles should be fine, I suppose :)

  7. Sorry to hear about the troubles with Kodak.

    Just make it back to us in good health, please :)

    And have fun!

  8. just wasted an hour of my life playing sneeze! Have a great trip and remember work will always be there when you come back!!

  9. LOL! It is addictive, isn't it? Did you manage to solve level 10?

    And thanks... tell me about the work waiting... judging from the way things are, I have to work on Sunday now... so much for going on a holiday!
