Lisa made coffee. It was the fifth coffee in the last three hours. But she had to stay awake as she had her presentation in an hour in the office.
She quickly freshened up, changed and headed for office. With no time for making breakfast, she headed out buying burgers from nearest Junk food store. She ate while she rode in the cab.
It was her third day of the same routine. Same staying awake at nights, junk food in breakfast. Only to repeat the same next day.
And when she reached office she quickly gave some finishing touches to her presentation. She had a lot of trouble on her computer, as it was all filled up with unnecessary
junk stuff. She has been meaning to delete the junk.
An hour later and her presentation was greatly appreciated. Party time!
She went out with her friends for dinner. She called her boyfriend over also. And when with friends celebrating, health concerns go out of the window. When her meal was almost over she realized that she had more calories in the last three days than she did in the entire week. She realized she had to start working out again.
Her boyfriend came over and she excused herself from her friends. He told her to come over to his place, said it has been weeks and she too deserved a break. She politely tried to decline when he burst into rage, shouted and stormed off.
With all her friends staring at her, she couldn’t take it and when to quietly weep in the washroom. She convinced herself that it wasn’t his fault. That it will be okay after a while, he will let it go after a while.
Next day back in the office, she was dumped with a lot of paperwork. Again stressed over so much workload, she asked Tom to help her. He complied and sat with her till the work was done. And all the while he made her talk about herself, listened to her opinions. As it was a little late in the night, he also dropped her off to her home. She admitted her disappointment in her friends as none stayed to help her.
All her friends teased her by saying Tom is in love with her. Preposterous she thought, he is just a nice guy.
Weekend! Party again with friends!(The Very same she was disappointed with)
She sat again with all her friends, they went on making judgements about her various officemates.
Oh, look how he does his hair!
Oh, look at that slut!
Did you know they just broke up!
As she drank her drink and saw her boyfriend come towards her, she suddenly remembered her conversation with Tom the other night.
But this thought was short lived and she went on with her
junk friends and boyfriend.
