Somebody destroy all those alarm clocks please!

The morning frenzy is back! The shrill alarm and its constant snoozing, the hurried showers, the rushed makeup, and the general anxiety of making it on time are all back, because I'm back to being employed!!! Yes, after seven months of luxurious leisure, I'm back to real life. I am thrilled about my new job, mainly because the role is completely new in the company and my job responsibilities are still to be properly devised. So I'll be the first ever 'Strategic Buyer- Media Buying' in  NestlĂ© Bangladesh Limited - yes the name's fancy too!

From what I've been able to gather so far, it's going to be very challenging because I'll have to handle a huge range of stakeholders very tactfully and work really hard to achieve the main objective of the job- saving the company's precious bucks as much as I can. Well, I still haven't been able to learn to save my own money, I hope the people who recruited me know what they're doing :P Another reason I'm very happy with this job is that I've worked in this company before. I was an intern there for 3 months and worked there for 5 more months later on. I know most of the people there, so I won't have to go through the trouble of tuning my frequency with those of my colleagues.

I'm excited about almost every aspect of the job, apart from the waking up in the morning. I've never been a morning person and I never can be- yes I've tried! And after seven months of waking up around noon, the mornings now seem more torturous than ever! I yearn to lie down in my bed for just one more minute even when I'm rushing out the door to start my day. The lovely sunshine does nothing to tear my thoughts away from my cozy bed, nor does the soothing breeze make me smile about the presence of beautiful Spring. It's only my first cup of coffee at work (Nescafe, of course) that shakes me up and makes me accept the harsh truth that I have a long day ahead of me and I better be alert. I thought of starting my mornings with yoga, because apparently it wakes up all your senses and is the healthiest way to start your day. But the yoga DVD lying on my bedside table looks like the least appealing thing in the morning and only reminds me that I still have some more of those precious momenta to indulge myself in la-la-land which are definitely not worth using on twisting my body into weird angles. Oh, what the heck, apparently sleeping is very healthy too!

Oh how I wish my mornings could be like this!

Anyways, I've rambled on for far too long about something that needs not too many words to explain...that I'm a lazy person and I always will be! So Bonne Nuit, world! My lovely bed beckons me and there I'll be till the cruel sunshine snatches me away from it tomorrow morning to start the long week ahead.
