I am beside myself with glee. Well not glee exactly. It is a sadden sort of happiness, if I can put it that way. Today, after a morning shift, I am at home in the evening at 6:17 pm and sitting in my room a few minutes later. This never happens to me for the past several months. Usually I hate working day shifts – meaning 8:30 am to 5:30 pm or 9:30 am to 6:30 pm – because I never get to leave the office on time.
There is always something or the other, some work or the other than comes up and I stay back for 2, 3 or 4 hours. And I come home late and go straight to bed, watch a little tv and fall asleep with the lights still on. I also end up waking up in the middle of the night, like around 2 or 3 and realize that the lights are still on and my laptop is still on and I switch everything off and get back to sleep because I need to be up by 6:00 am.
But yesterday I left by 6:15 am because a college was on his last working day there and I wanted to speak to him for a while. With the rains and it being rush hour at 6:30 pm, I took almost 90 minutes to get home. Today I took less than 30 minutes to get home and made a large coffee and some Oreo type cookies and enjoying being online. This is new. This is sweet. Simple yet so enjoyable.
