The weekdays have ended and the weekend has finally started. Me as a full time software developer with many ideas and side projects in my mind, the weekend is where I will have the most time to concentrate them on. Which is what I actually did right after I woke up in the morning.

Once again, the basic routine, make the bed, shower, breakfast and off to my desk. After an hour or so of hacking around, I noticed that I have been draining brain juices throughout the whole weekday. So I stopped what I am doing and slacked a little around by reading other people's writing here at 200wordsaday.com and even read through what I have written. One of my writing actually triggered me, it was the one about mother nature. With an extra thought, I actually asked myself, that I should spend more time outside. With that saying, I stopped whatever I am doing and actually went out.

I always believe in sacrificing time to do what you love to get your dream come true. It is okay to sacrifice time for that but it will never worth even a single second if things are affecting my health. Draining my energy throughout the week may not do anything at first, but if I would continue doing it, negative results may appear. 

Everyone deserves to always take a time off and enjoy life while you still breathing. Happy Weekends everyone!

    @wernminlim "As a full-time software developer with many ideas and side projects in mind, weekend is where I have more time to concentrate on them. Which is what I actually do right after waking up." I used this sentence as a tweet quote today. You can observe the changes I did to remove some grammar or syntax mistakes. When you use present simple, stick to it instead of using past + present (time concordance).

      some words are redundant as well. for example "wake up in the morning" could be just "wake up" so that you let the reader assume it's morning

    @wernminlim Writing is about self-reflection. When you write something down, I believe you become more likely to organize your thoughts to actually act upon them. In your case, going out to enjoy the beautiful nature.

      @wernminlim @basilesamel Totally agree on this! And the best part is that what ever I've planned, I am executing them instead of leaving them with the dust ?
