Another week gone by, my dear readers! I don’t know about you all, but for me this week has just flown by. The days themselves have seemed like they just dragged on and on. Training is taking its toll on me. It’s a lot of information that is A) kinda boring most of the time, B) sometimes repetitive, and C) sometimes very technical. It’s also frustrating that we don’t have access to all the things we need to have access to to actually learn all this stuff. But I’ve got three more weeks in training, then two weeks with someone on the floor to help us, so I know I’ll get it eventually. It’s just a little frustrating at the moment.
I might also be frustrated because I’m still not used to mornings and staying up all day long. I’ve been out of consistent work for over a year. That’s a lot of my body getting what it wants, when it wants. So I’m not getting as much sleep as I want/need during the week. I’ve come home every day feeling exhausted and wake up still feeling exhausted. I’m exhausted through the weekends, too.
And next week is gonna be a hard one for me – in order to have Thanksgiving off, we have to do four 10-hour days instead of the regular five 8-hour days. 7:30 AM to 6 PM instead of my easier-to-handle 9 AM to 5:30 PM. On top of that, next week we start taking basic refill calls. On top of that, I’m petsitting for my mom’s co-worker. Goodbye, sleep. I shall think of you fondly.
Other than that, I do like my new habit of doing my make-up and trying new hairstyles every morning. I’m getting really good at braiding, now! The downtime in class gives me the opportunity to plan out a bunch of posts and plots and stuff, even if I’m too tired to type any of it up when I get home.
I’ve also started writing letters again, which is fun for me. Everyone loves getting something other than bills and junk in their mailbox! If anyone wants a letter from me, drop me a line at email@example.com with your name, address, and maybe a few things about yourself! If you know me personally, just message me on Facebook.
And that’s about it for this past week. Let’s see how I handle this upcoming week…
