I actually enjoy having a lot of work.

When it’s raining, it’s pouring.

Yesterday was my birthday. In the morning, I did the laundry. I spent the entire day translating, except for a pause to get some groceries and another to make a quick meal in a microwave.

At the end of the day, I was barely able to look, because of the all-day translating — and I guess it will be like that until I finish it, which will take some time.

I look tired and I feel tired and I can barely keep my eyes open, and yet, I’m not complaining. I can rant about having a lot to do (although I prefer actually doing it), but I don’t feel bad. I like being busy, and it’s not just because it pays the bills, and not even just because I enjoy translating this particular book; it’s because I enjoy being busy like this, it’s a challenge and it’s keeping me occupied and there’s this good feeling of accomplishing something worth accomplishing. Know the feeling?

Anyone else feeling this way when working?

  1. Ivana, happy belated birthday! I can relate to the feeling of accomplishment but then I can also relate to the feeling of being really tired when busy. I think at the end of the day, it's just gratifying to know that you're working to finish something and being productive. I love the kitty cat photo!
