So it’s been a little over a week since I moved to this current work shift of 8 am to 5 pm. How has it been going? Well surprisingly it has been mostly ok. The first week I have struggled to wake up at 6 am. I try to sleep by 11:15 pm and keep the alarm for 6 am. I usually wake up so tired and sleepy that I need more than just a cup of hot black coffee to wake me up. This week I have been waking up at 6 am but then resetting the alarm for 6:30 and getting another 30 minutes in.
I then get up and go to the loo and then brush my teeth. Coffee is up next and while the water is boiling, I switched the laptop on and connect the wifi. Coffee in hand, I’m sat at the laptop and checking emails and Facebook and all sorts of Youtube stuff. I start my work system at 7:30 am and start to read my email. My training batch starts trickling in by 8 am and I start the day’s sessions till 10:00 am. I send them for a break and I get my second cup of coffee for the day. I come back to my work system and relax for a few minutes with some music.
At 10:30 am I continue with more sessions and work with them till 1:30 pm and then give them a 45min break for lunch. I have mine and then chat with mom & dad and see if we need to buy anything like groceries or anything. At 2:15 pm we continue the sessions till 4:30 pm when I make them remember to shutdown the systems and send them to go and get their cabs. Then I reply to some emails and make sure that I do anything that needs to be done and make sure that I can shut off my work system by 5:15 pm and it’s coffee and snack time.
I will then get a coffee after the coffee and snacks are done and will be watching Youtube till 9pm. I have dinner and then watch tv show episodes and go to sleep by 11:15 am. Rinse & repeat!
