Job

There are a lot of mundane jobs in this world and many people do work that they don't particularly enjoy or that they don't find meaningful. I'm thankful that my job is interesting and that I like what I'm doing. That is a rarity, actually.

Rain

It's raining right now. Although rain can be inconvenient, especially if you have to drive (it's always jammed up and a bit dangerous driving when there's heavy rain) or if you roof is a bit leaky, rain helps to cool down the weather and that is always welcome in a hot country like Malaysia. Rain also helps to wash away the dust and other things accumulated on the roads and drains.

Gmail

Am in the process of clearing up my Gmail account. Over the years, the tendency is to archive everything -- except for spam, of course -- but in reality much of the stuff archived is disposable. Now, I have well over 70K e-mails, the overwhelming bulk of which I shall never revisit and are not worth keeping. So, I'm going through them and deleting them to clear up some space. But what a service Gmail is. We tend to forget but Gmail was such a revelation when it first came out. It really revolutionized things.
