Tired & Weak – This Life Is Getting Me Down

This past week I have been back working in the 6:30 pm to 3:30 am shift and man am I feeling very tired. I feel it especially in the morning after I wake up. In this shift I leave the office and reach home around 4 am and usually sleep around 5 am and wake up by 11:30 am and that is when I feel like my legs from the knees below are about to come. I am so tired that I just have coffee and skip breakfast. I usually eat lunch by 1:30 pm and lie in bed for 2 more hours to watch some tv.

At 4 pm I will get some tea and slowly go and iron my clothe for the day and then go to shave and take a shower. I sit in my room for a bit after that and then get ready, book mu Uber or Yathri and go down and ride the 45 minutes to the office.  Dinner is usually at 9pm and I will take a coffee break at around 1 or 1:30 am in between work for the day. Once again I usually get my cab ride back by 3:40 am and am just so happy to come back home.

Sometimes I eat a snack like maybe a quick sandwich but usually its biscuits and/or an apple and an orange and then lie down in bed watching tv – usually it;s a sitcom at this stage of the night to help me wind down. Then it’s off to sleep.

A Simple Caramel Popcorn Recipe To Try At Home


  • 5 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda


Gather all ingredients. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring 4 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour caramel in a thin stream over popcorn while stirring. Stir until evenly coated. Divide popcorn between two large shallow baking dishes. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into pieces. Enjoy!
