Have a lot of hobbies so just cycling in between. Video games (just bought a new one), model kits, writing stories. Also need to get back into exercising after a month long hiatus. Scary typhoon like weather doesn't help.

Past few weekends been painting cabinets at the in-laws... practicing for DIY life in Australia? :P Certainly learned a lot about paint, tools and techniques. The finished product is quite professional looking to me.

Work is also picking up again after a few slow weeks.

I normally keep the work away from my personal time whatever may be the work pressure I leave it at the office desk.

Same, I don't actually code at home although I know some developers like to code in their down time.

Downside is I don't have a beautiful portfolio of projects to show to prospective employers.

I believe what makes life beautiful is the way we think about it. If you think you ae busy and anxious then you are. If you think happy and relaxed then you are.

Wow, This is what I was looking for,

After submitting my docs a month back I really did not know what to do. Before submitting i was so busy, stressed and i never knew how the day went by.
But now even an hour seems like a whole day.

This is what I do,
Come to office, as usual, check my Immi account, check on several forums that i am following.
I started a Drinking water challenge. So I am concentrated on my body hydrate level and consumption of liquids.

Set up a goal to reduce my weight by 5kg. at home do my workouts.

daydream how to hand over my resignation letter to my boss.

daydream how to deliver my farewell speech.

yet.... yet my boys... time stand still.

so tell me what else should i do....

Doing the following apart from freelance work:

1. Preparing for PMP certification. Exam in Dec 2018. Hope to pass it successfully.
2. Completed a course on developing web application.
3. Currently learning how to make mobile apps. Plan to develop a small app for kid / parents.
4. Helping fellow applicants on Expatforum.
5. Worked on my Resume and CL. Its almost like I am making it for the first time. The last time I made it was internship and then was absorbed by the same company for close to 9.5 years.
6. Building a book library for my 1.3 year old.

On a funny note,

1. Learning statistics and analysis using Immitracker
2. Learning knowledge gathering and linking data available on expatforum and immitracker

On a serious note, trying to keep myself busy as much as possible to help stay away from negative thoughts.
