This has been A LONG week, and it’s not going to be getting better any time soon. Each time on the entire floor has had a mandatory overtime day which has been great for managing the queue time, but has resulted in a lot of short tempers. My team’s is on Saturday, which would have meant I couldn’t work first weekend of Faire at all. This was NOT OK, so I managed to get someone to cover my shift in return for taking his tomorrow.
So for those keeping track, I worked 6 days last week, will work 6 days this week, and my one day off will be spent on my feet all day out at the Renaissance Festival. Oh the things we do for the love of bad historical recreation and the enrichment of greedy little trolls (that would be Jeffery, not Bob)!
That’s been my life for the past fortnight, so don’t expect much from me. The new job is really great but exhausting, and I talk so much that I lost my voice on Tuesday night and have been wheezing all my answers for the past two days.
I can’t really go into it yet as things are still up in the air, but there’s also a very real possibility that I will no longer be able to afford a condo/townhouse of my very own. The downpayment probably won’t be the issue, but instead the month-to-month expenses. et’s just say that the British are right in insisting that their children not have to start life off with huge debt, because MAN does it cut off all your options!
Take care everyone.
