Another day in reality...

Work was really tiring today (Wait! When is it ever not tiring?!? :p).
These past few months have been extremely challenging. But, to lift my spirits up again, I'll just say to myself, "What's life without challenges? Dull!". However, too many challenges can also draw me down, so down that at times it's just so hard to get back up again.
Right now I am trying to find the strength to get back up again. Work is work, studies' not going well (internal issues at the department, which leaves me the direct victim!), etc, etc, etc. It's a bit sad to think that right now, my life evolves / revolves around my work only. Even family and friends have to be placed as secondary priorities. I've not gone back to my hometown for over 3 months now! The last time I was home was during the new year break (1st to 4th January 2009).
It saddens me. Although I do meet my parents now and then when they come over to my sister's or brother's house quite nearby, it's not the same as the feel that a person gets when going home. I guess that's just a part of it - I want to go home. I want to laze about for a while, be enveloped by my parents love and affection, without a care in the world for other things. Call me selfish for not wanting to think about others, but that's what I really need now. I need to get back up again, and it's just so hard at the moment. I put a smile on my face, and everyone thinks I'm fine, but in actuality, I am tired.
Whatever it is, having my faith always with me, I am still grateful for all the things that I do have. My life goes on, regardless. :)
