i'm (not) dating.

i spend lots of time with alvin. i mean, that's a given, right? since we work together?

we spend pretty much the entire day together, working through bits before experiments, culturing malaria together, working on the experiments we set up, writing research papers (not so much reading research papers - which is a nasty habit i have to change), coming up with a poster design, preparing for upcoming conferences, preparing to move our experiments over to NTU, making media... THIS WORK IS NEVER-ENDING.

and then of course, we go out and catch movies or concerts or go cycling or shopping and I LOVE ALL MY FRIENDS... but it seriously perturbs me that, we never seem to be alone anymore.

i try thinking back to the most recent 'just-the-two-of-us' date we've had.

'hmm... went for cloverfield with the guys, went for parties with my cell, played guitar hero with HIS cell... etc etc'

well ok, i can think of one recent 'just-the-two-of-us' date actually. we'd gone to parkway for sashimi and then walked around for what, 1 hour? then we went back to his place to work on our IC50 paper.

this is all rather depressing. rather.

-great big sigh-

see, classic example. it's almost 8pm and i'm waiting to go home with alvin to... have dinner then work on the IC50 paper and on our poster for next week's conference.

i don't need 'me' time, i need some 'us' time. :(
