So I am back to the evening shifts again. I was sort of getting the grove on the morning shifts, waking up at 6 am and getting to work by 8:30 am but most importantly getting off work by 5:30 pm which was awesome. Though in reality I was leaving the office by 6pm and getting home by 7 pm in the fucking traffic which has been killer these past couple of weeks.
Being able to drink a beer at home after work was also good. I did that twice; once on Wednesday night and then after the shitty day on Friday I just had to come back home and drown my woes in a couple of beers. I only got to leave the office by 8 pm and catch an Ola ride back home. I came in and asked dad and mom if they wanted some chilly chicken since I wanted to order some and drink my beers. Dad had already had dinner as he had gone out for the evening so mom and I ate the chicken and I drank my brewskis.
That is an awesome thing being able to enjoy a beer after you come back home from a tough day at work. I don’t want to drink at 4 am or 4:15 am so I don’t do that after coming home from work during the night shifts. Some people do but I don’t. Anyways, I have the weekend for beers and other drinks.
Do you give back to your community by volunteering? Or maybe you have a favorite charity you support in other ways. Tell us what causes are important to you, and why.
No I haven’t. Other than a few blood donations and some charity money funding I haven’t really done anything at all. However I might be doing some pretty soon through the company that I work for. So they have this drive that they are doing by having employees donate their time to conduct some sessions for learning a skill and taking a class on a certain topic for other people.
Like maybe an 8 hour session on Excel skills by staff who are really good at Excel for beginners. Or Word or Powerpoint. Or how to draft and official email. Correcting grammar. General sessions that can help people who haven’t worked in a corporate environment. In a lot of cases the people who are attending these sessions are from below poverty level. In some cases people with disabilities as well.
I am not really comfortable to take sessions for general public but I usually take sessions for employees. This will be similar I suppose. So I hope it goes well and I can take several such sessions if it helps.
