This summer I found that I need to be in bed by 10pm. Any later, my body will re-compensate by waking up a little bit late then my intended time. I have multiple alarm set to ensure I will not miss Subuh (and preferably to be awake 15-30 minutes earlier), but it is a hard feat to achieve this year.
I usually jog around the camp for around one hour after Isyak (usually concluded at 9pm), this mean I will only be back at my cabin around 10.15pm and this affect the time I wake up in the morning.
And this often thrown off my morning routine and I often have to rush to the office without properly checking off every item on my morning routine. Luckily, despite the very heavy workload I am getting used a bit to it and able to maintain calm in the middle of the storm.
However, I really hope this is just for an interim period of time, while I am getting my personal life in order.
Insyaallah, this year will be my last year in P’s Iraq Operation. It’s a bitter sweet memory. It’s a lucrative assignment, nonetheless I paid an expensive price with my personal life for it. If there is any silver lining to it, I emerge a better person, a better man.
