They always say women can do two things at the same time, whereas men can hardly do one thing without making a mess of it. (Sorry guys!) There are, however, women among us who take the art of multitasking to a whole other level. The mother who takes care of the children – cooks dinner, cleans the house and helps with homework – while busting her ass off at the office. The career woman, working six days a week till midnight and still trying to have something of a social life.
And then there is me: the student with a passion for cooking and all things Christmas. Studying for my exams, doing research for my master paper, writing blog posts, making preparations for the Christmas menu, gift-wrapping presents and cooking delicious meals. And ALL THESE THINGS AT THE SAME TIME! If that is not multitasking, I don’t know what is!
Still not convinced? Here is proof of my multitasking gene: today’s supper of stir fried noodles and vegetables with spicy oyster-garlic sauce and caramelized peanuts, prepared while cramming The British education system in my head, drawing up a cooking schedule for Christmas Eve and gift-wrapping grandpa’s present. I am nothing short of a genius! 😉
That is why I want to dedicate this post to all the multitasking women out there. It is time to sit back and relax, ladies! Because you’ve earned it! Take a hot bath with your head tilted back and with your feet up high. Or spend Christmas with the ones you love and forget about the trillion other things you still need to do. Treat yourself to a glass of champagne, because this blog post is a toast to all you superwomen! Cheers and Happy Holidays!
