0143A: Another Tiring Work Shift

Home late from work today after a late appointment. Shifting to a later schedule isn't too bad in terms of the whole call center experience. The real pain in the butt is trying to shift back to an earlier schedule so as to ensure the rest of the week returns to normal. I still have my Thursday and Friday night shifts to accommodate for my regular work duties. So yeah, it's going to be a pain to finish this work week, but what else can I do? It's part of the price that we pay in the call center life.

So there's only one way to get to my normal schedule, and that means trying to sleep at my normal time despite my efforts to get my usual post-shift activities done before sleepy time comes along. But it's not like I haven't been in this boat before. I'll survive.

So it'll be a quick jump to a slightly earlier schedule tonight and then a final jump to realign myself properly come Friday night. I think this is course that I can handle decently enough under the circumstances.

And yes, I'm really fixated on jump ships and related technologies right now. Not sure when I'll be able to shake it off, but it probably has a lot to do with my playing Strikefleet Omega again. For some reason the game has become somewhat easier once more after a few updates were made to the game.

I just started watching Star Trek: Enterprise, the only Trek series that I had never really taken the time to watch thus far. I still hope to make time to watch the entire run of Star Trek: The Next Generation (yes, shamefully I've missed more than just a few episodes), but for one reason or another I wanted to see something new. And Star Trek is definitely the type of series that I like to curl up on the couch with when I'm feeling particularly tired or stressed. This is one of those time.

This is also the sort of day that I've opted to have a drink before bed. I know, I know, it's not exactly a good habit, but humor this indulgence. It's not like I drink every day and it's just a single Vodka Mudshake. Har har.

It's really just one of those days. It's not like things are going horribly at work or anything like that. It's all just pretty tiring and I'm dying to get to the weekend at this point. All I want is to get enough rest and to do things that I actually enjoy doing. it's not much of a plan, but it sounds plenty good to me. And we're almost there!

Outside of that, just killing time on Grindr and Growlr, reading a few books and just getting by. Tired.
