(Untitled) Of relationshi ps and clogged toilets /388
The other day, G left the toilet clogged overnight.
Now, okay, I should probably explain my living situation before I begin this tirade. I stay with 3 other people in a 3-bedroom apartment on the 6th floor. G and I share a room. Chuen Hwee's room is across the hall, and Nureen's room is to his right. CH and N are Year 4s from SMU, and they're lovely individuals. But lovely individuals don't always make for lovely housemates.
If you have ever spoken to any Scandinavian teenager who's just moved out of her parents' home and into an apartment with her BFF, she can probably testify for how drastically your perceptions of a person change when you start living with them. The BFF quickly evolves into the most annoying person in the universe. (Which of course is great news for Mom. Your angsty adolescent has found a new worst enemy.) Sadly, this is very true.

Tapi tu lah... valid la jugak apa dia fikir. Untuk masa depan kot.
Kadang-kadang rasa my attachment to the job, to the project, to the team is way too much. I should put a limit. Pagi-pagi bangun, tengok email. Baca morning report. Time dah start kerja tu okaylah, understandable. Petang balik while dalam kereta pun boleh pulak tengok2 email. Dah-dahlah tu Eira. Kalau weekend lagilah, memang time bangun pagi, tengah gegolek atas katil sambil mata tak betul2 bukak baca morning report. Sometimes aku rasa, I would do anything for the project.
