As much as I’ve complained about not having enough time to get much sleep this week, I happy that I’m able to say ‘Thank God it’s Friday’. When I was in school, and working service industry jobs I always said that I could never see myself at a desk job. And now I think, “What a silly little kid I was.” What I didn’t realise was my need for routine… something that will enable me to do something out of the blue.
I think what i hated the most about working customer service related jobs was the irregular schedule. Not being able to make plans because your schedule could change at a moment’s notice. But it was also the fact that because you’re on such an irregular schedule,1 it meant you pretty much partied with your co-workers. It was condusive to a life of work, you spend all your time with the same people… it becomes inevitable that you start to become attractive to someone from the group.
I don’t want to get into too much detail about this, so I’m going to stop now. I’m so glad it’s Friday, even though I’m not doing anything fun tonight2. I haven’t been paid yet so I’m not going out with my friends but I do have xPeriapexx’s Pig Roast tomorrow, and I’m pretty excited about it. I also hope to get some work done for my friends’ website that I was supposed to have drafted for them by today. Oops3.
What are you working hours like? What would you prefer your working hours were like?
