Overchoice

I’ve come to a conclusion: having too many options causes nothing but trouble. I was sitting on my bed browsing through Netflix for almost two hours last night trying to choose a film to watch and what was the end result? I got tired, gave up and went to sleep, there was just too much … More Overchoice

Home Alone

So my family all jetted off to India yesterday. They’re away for two weeks to attend a wedding in Punjab, but sadly I couldn’t join them because I’ve reached the limit on my annual-leave allowance at work.
