My Own Prison

Posted on 23 Oct 2014 under Journal/Life Updates

Yesterday, I left office at around 1730 … much, much earlier than I normally do. In fact, I don’t recall when I left office before dark. It felt odd.

I would love to say that it felt great to be out early, that it felt like a fun, little reward, but it didn’t, really. All through the (relatively lighter on traffic) drive home, all I could think about was all the work I hadn’t completed, the work piled up to be done over Diwali and over the dull working Friday to follow. Should I have stayed in office till 1900 like I normally do? Maybe if I left later, I would have completed a lot more work.

It’s funny how we are our own prisoners, sometimes without realizing. I’ve seen and heard so many of my colleagues say that they’ve got no work left to do, but they can’t leave because it’s not even 6 o’ clock yet. Meh, actually, it’s not funny, it’s sad, isn’t it?

But here we are.

Anyway, I gotta go, have work to complete. Happy Diwali.
