Sleeping Into The Monday

November 30, 2015

I woke up really early in the day, which meant that I was technically up and running even before four o’clock. I didn’t meant it, but is sure happened, and as a result by around ten I was ready to hit the sack. Figures.

Slept somewhat uninterrupted up until late afternoon, at which I kind of realized that I forgot to charge my cellphone, so I got up from bed, promptly did, and now here I am, fully awake to face the week again. Hmm.

I’m expecting a lot of calls in the wake of the Thanksgiving holiday, though I’m still hoping that some people won’t bother and just make up for it tomorrow. I’d seriously like to see a slow Monday, for a change.

Expected Weekend Behaviors

November 29, 2015

I kind of slept in today. I woke up early, maybe at around eight in the morning, then promptly went back to bed. The next thing I knew, it was past one in the afternoon, and by this point my sister and the baby had went home to Quezon City. Hmm.

It’s not as bad as it sounds though, as on the bright side I feel fully rested… Shame that it isn’t a weekday, and I couldn’t really use all that energy for productive work. Oh well.

Tomorrow’s a holiday, which means that I won’t be able to put my money in the bank yet, which means I’m going to have to leave most of it at home tomorrow, just so I won’t be tempted to use it in impulse purchases. Just have to hang in there until Tuesday, I guess.

Weekend Surprises

November 28, 2015

It was a very slow shift last night, but I suppose that’s what you get in the wake of thanksgiving. Not that there weren’t any calls coming in, but they were comparatively minimal, which meant long long periods of just sitting around doing nothing, and everyone on the floor trying to find something to busy themselves with.

The large gap in between calls was a bit of a blessing for me though, as I was able to focus on each call. I think I did somewhat good, and no major screw-ups made themselves apparent even in hindsight. Hmm.

And when I got home? Well it was back to Kantai Collection’s event stages. I actually figured that I’d be stuck for a while longer at its fourth map, but after my first sortie for the day, well…

Yeah, sometimes RNG gives you a break.

Yeah, sometimes RNG gives you a break.

Yeah. This meant that I didn’t have any excuse to tarry anymore in the area, so I went about clearing E-4. I even got an extra U-511 on the final clear, meaning I could also finally convert the high-level Yuu I already had to Ro-500. Hmm.


A Quick Thanksgiving

November 27, 2015

I didn’t post anything yesterday because I was mostly taking advantage of the Thanksgiving break we were given. This meant of course I was just relaxing at home for the good part of the day, before heading off in the evening for the company-funded movie (the last part of the Hunger Games series). While I didn’t think it was that great of a movie, it wasn’t a waste of evening hours either. This did mean that I had to commute home via bus when I got home, but eh, it’s not like I’m not used to it.

Of course, because of the espresso I drank while waiting for the movie’s (which was at ten-thirty in the evening, and I got to the cinema before nine). So I spent the next three hours or so trying to get sleepy… which meant playing Kancolle and continuing to farm for Asashimo at E-3. And eventually…

Yeah, finally too.

Yeah, finally too.

Yeah, with Asashimo gotten I was free to finish the rest of the stage. Which I did in one sitting.

Kantai Fall 2015 E-3 Clear! Kantai Fall 2015 E-3 Kashima get!

Whew.

Whew.

So now I’m at E-4 farming for Graf Zeppelin. Here we go again…

Yeah. This.

Yeah. This.

Incidentally it’s payday today. I expected a big payout, but sadly according to my online look at my payroll account, the money only settled into it after five in the afternoon. So much for putting it into my savings in time for the end of the month.


That Weekend, So Close

November 25, 2015

It’s the hump day, as they say at work, but it’s one day before Thanksgiving which means it’s just one day to endure before our little company group watch at the Ayala cinemas tomorrow.  It’s not exactly a day off, but any day off the phones is okay with me.

As for the shift last night, relatively less hectic compared to Monday, but it still had its rough spots — like an hour-long marathon call as well as getting a one-on-one review of one of my calls close to the end of the day. Yeesh. 

Hoping that the trend continues, but given as it’s the day before a holiday, I’m expecting instead a surge of calls. Buh.


Early Countdown To The Weekend

November 24, 2015

Last night’s shift wasn’t as rough as it could have been, but a Monday is still a Monday, and I was just glad I got through it in more or less one piece.  On the bright side, since it wasn’t as stressful as last week, it meant that I was still able to stay awake for around two hours after I got home. 

I managed to watch some anime, and continue the Asashimo farm on Kantai collection, but by around nine I was nodding off. So I said heck with it. I didn’t even bother waiting for one of the shorter expeditions to come back on Kantai Collection, and just went straight to sleep.

Kind of looking forward to the Thanksgiving weekend though. Free movie aside, it also means that we’re mostly free of calls on Black Friday too. Though it does make me wonder if we’re going to get our pay this weekend, or the start of next week instead.  Kind of hope it’s the former, as my savings really need a leg up, so to speak.

Here’s to hoping as usual that the Tuesday shift isn’t stressful, but that’s just temping fate as usual.

Back To Normal Weeks, I Suppose

November 23, 2015

I’m finding it really odd, waking up in the early evening again, rather than mid-afternoon. With APEC over, there’s really not much reason to wake up early, so I suppose it’s just as well. Not much to bother about when there’s no pre-shift OT to be had.

That said, schedule readjustment didn’t go as smoothly today, especially since I woke up at around ten in the afternoon. This meant that I had to force myself to sleep by around two in the afternoon.  Not easy, I assure you.

So I tried to bide my time, and tire myself out to get to sleep. This meant watching anime in my case (the week’s episode of Gochiusa and Gundam) as well as continuing on with the Asashimo farming in Kantai Collection. Yeah.

Eventually did go to sleep, but one can understand why I don’t feel as energetic as I should be. Which means I really really hope that the start of the week at work tonight isn’t as rough as last week.
