Sunday post on Monday as I was a little busy yesterday.

The Mrs and I celebrated our anniversary last Saturday. We went to a pub and with me going against my better judgement, ended up spending a little too much. We did have good fun though. Spent some quality time just talking to each other.

Went to the gym for a couple of days. Need to do better this week.

The Mrs has been working hard preparing for interviews. I need to step up as well and start making the most of my time. I am spending about 3 hours in the cab every day. I need to figure out a way to make the best use of that time. Spending it watching random series is not going to help me. Starting today, I will download one youtube learning video before every trip and will watch the video and learn something.

Sunday post on Tuesday as I was busy the last couple of days.

So the cost for my trip to South Africa has come to a total of about 2.2 Lakhs for the both of us. Was it worth it?

I struggled to wake up early in the morning to go to the gym last week. It has been difficult adjusting to the time zone difference. I have about 6 weeks left on the gym subscription. I need to make sure I make the most of it as I will not be renewing the gym subscription. I need to lose a couple of kgs before the new year.

Making plans to visit the in laws next sunkranti.

Dad says money will come in December.

The Mrs. sister is carrying.

Had a great trip to South Africa. My enjoyment in the trip almost equaled the disappointment I felt when I found out that I was rejected in Amazon. They went by the result of the first round which did not go well. If I could have just prepared better. Aditya gave everything to me on a platter. All I needed to do was to spend some time on it.

That’s 2 interviews now that I have failed because of my own mistakes. Its not that I am lacking technically, I need to focus better and make sure I don’t make silly mistakes. The DBA market is very bad and I cannot afford to make this a habit. I don’t know when the next opportunity will come.

The work in the office is getting very hectic. I guess I owe it to the company to show some dedication and to deliver results. I have to put my head down and work hard, at least till the end of this year.
