Busy October

# 87 This is my first discussion in October. Just didn’t have time to be here long this past week or so. I have been very busy offline, and although I still checked my notifications daily, my interactions have been very limited and it sure showed on my daily earnings... Work has been more demanding than usual. Some expansion project that was pending in the last few years has finally received preliminary approvals a few months ago. Project meetings, onsite visits, as well as entertaining overseas business partners are all part of my job that demands more of my time... I wish for a good and productive October to all of us...

Thanks! I hope it will start to be less hectic in the coming weeks. But I don't really expect it - there's always a degree of increased responsibilities with every success...

@TheInvisibleMan It's okay, because I like my job. But I'd prefer it to be less hectic. I usually manage to find a good balance though...

Thanks for the wishes...I would see how the days gallop as we grow older. A very busy time for you indeed. This is the last month before exams do lots of teaching, and revision and tests

Time does go by so fast when we're busy... Another dinner function I have to attend tonight and feels like I'm still recovering from the one I went to the other night... Things should somewhat go back to normal routine for me once the company guests left by end of the week...

@sishy7 do you just have to go or sort of host it too.? The second option can involve responsibilities . Basically I like small group.parties...Or if big parties then would like some friends around too

@responsiveme On some we were just invited by other companies. But yeah, the other night our company invited the other parties. It was at a restaurant, so 'hosting' was just more like making the reservations and taking care of the bills...

I'm sorry you have been so busy, work does come before Mylot of course. I hope things slow down a little for you so you can be here more. =)

Yes, I like very much to be here. But if I have other responsibilities hanging over my head, I can't really enjoy being on here anyway and I'd just be better off taking care of them first...

Busy October - yes - it really is! I've been busy with school stuff . . . I have so much to catch up on here, and haven't been able to. I have yet another post that includes you but haven't gotten around to writing it - maybe next week . Ah, you sound extremely busy with work stuff - the project sounds "big"! Hope you have a wee bit of time here and there to sneak out of the project and come here !

@sishy7 I've been meaning to create the post much earlier - ah but it hasn't happened yet. I even have photos (I haven't even checked the photos yet to see if they are even clear enough!).

There are times when we must attend to other things than being here on Mylot. I often worry that people will forget about me if I were to take a leave of absence from here.

Our notifications will quickly reduce to almost none when we are not active but I wouldn't worry about people forgetting us. There are plenty of observant members and those with sharp memories on here who will surely remember those coming back after a long absent.

That's my wish too for October. Well, Christmas is just more than 2 months from now, so we really have to work hard so the company will be profitable and so we can be given bounuses.

That's the target! The more profitable the company is, the more likely they will consider awarding bonuses to employees...

I'm busy offline as well, but I've gotten too used to the extra 5-7 dollars in my PayPal and don't want to lose that. In all honesty though, the money isn't really that big of a deal. Hope you have a good October!

I think sometimes it may be a good sign that we are busy at work. Actually lately I am also busy at work. Fortunately we still had the National Holiday in early October. So at least it was a kind of break for me. Now I have to catch up everything again.

Yes, I notice you have not been as active on here as usual... A holiday break is always nice, but yeah, unfortunately there's always some catching up that we need to do after a break...
