Not A Morning Person

I find it difficult to wake up and function at 6am. Hell even at 7am. And it’s only for waking up and then getting ready to go to work. I don’t like working that early in the morning. Like after 10am is fine. But having to get to work at 8:30 am or even 9 am is tough. I need a few hours – 3 or so – after I wake up to come out of zombie mode and become a functional human being. And 2 cups of strong coffee along the way.

But I am having to do this for this week and the next and I am tired. I need to get used to these hours. I got so used to reaching home at the early hours of the morning like between 3am and 5am and that means that I wake up at around 11am or noon and can restup till 6pm when I need to get ready and go to work. When you work these shifts, you need plenty of rest. Especially at my age. No going out for lunches or movies during the work week.

So when I do get these day shift, working from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm I keep thinking, hey I can go out and enjoy the evening. But ofcourse something always comes up and I get busy and then reach home only by 8pm. And then I get online for a couple of hours, watch tv shows for a couple of hours and then go to sleep.

Arsenal 6 Bate Borisov 0

Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott hope they have given manager Arsene Wenger a “selection headache” by impressing during Arsenal’s comfortable Europa League win over Bate Borisov. Neither midfielder Wilshere nor forward Walcott have started a Premier League game for the Gunners this season, but both found the net as Arsenal finished their Group H campaign with a comprehensive victory.

The Gunners, who had already secured top spot, went ahead with an angled finish from defender Mathieu Debuchy. Walcott added Arsenal’s second with a close-range finish and Wilshere then scored a fine goal after he cut on to his left foot inside the penalty area and arrowed the ball into the net. Bate defender Denis Polyakov put Walcott’s low cross into his own net after half-time before striker Olivier Giroud converted from the penalty spot following Nemanja Milunovic’s trip on Walcott. Mohamed Elneny added a sixth with a curling effort after being set up by Wilshere.

In the wake of Arsenal’s 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United, this fixture represented a chance for some of their fringe players to impress. Wenger made 11 changes from the side that lost to United in the Premier League, although the starting line-up still boasted plenty of experience. Bate had a chance of qualifying for the knockout phase but did not present much of a test for the Gunners, who did not have to exert themselves to secure a routine victory. In truth, the margin of victory probably could have been even greater given Arsenal managed 22 shots on goal.
