that's what the next two months will be for me.

i've been offered a two-month project as trial, before we discuss a longterm contract.

not putting my eggs in one basket, i've decided to hang on and juggle both jobs for these two months.

suicidal, i am.


in other news, i have been a bad girl in the department of leather goods. since i've started work at my current position, i've had to bring my ibook to the office whenever i'm going in. i have pretty flexible hours, and do a lot of work outside of the office, but i still go in on most weekdays at varying hours of the day. this will continue till my boss purchases a new macbook, which should be happening in the next coupla weeks. as some people might know, apples are not the lightest laptops to lug around. sigh. my hands have not been happy carrying my beloved ibook all over the place, making known their displeasure via aches and pains.

thus, i've been hunting for a large leather bag big enough and sturdy enough to put my ibook and the contents of my handbag in. i'm a rather picky girl, so it's taken awhile...

and it sure didn't come cheap.

it is my most expensive piece of non-gadget possession to date, not including furniture. in fact, i'm going to shock myself again if i type the price out here. let's just say that it costs more than a coach bag.

it's not even a brand i'm familiar with, but then i've never been a big fan of flashy brands.

still shocked at myself but am quite pleased to end the search at last.

no, i'm not a fan of labels. i wish the things i happen to like are not from big brand names so they'd cost me less moolahs.

couldn't resist leaving a comment.

this brand's leather is fabulously soft, yet surprisingly sturdy. i use it for travelling and it has withstood ibooks, water bottles through winter and the tropics.

great buy!

hey! how's work getting on?

i have not been blogging much as my work is killing me. :(
JV: speckydrag0nette on June 5th, 2007 03:08 pm (UTC)
i'm about to get totally flooded. :) but i know there's a light at the end of the tunnel worth fighting for!

me too... writing in here so much less because i'm writing all this other shit for work, but i will try to post more as a form of relaxation. i realise that i need to do something to take my brain away from work before bedtime or i'll turn insomniac.

remember to take care of your health! :)

the brand sounds interesting - like a fancy cocktail (or something like that ;)).

2 jobs! Don't overwork yourself :)
