We’re supposed to be out at this Dallas client for two weeks.
For the first week, we have a staff from LA out to help with the work. Well the client had nothing for us on the first day, Monday. There was also nothing for us on Tuesday, or Wednesday. Our bosses ended up talking to the client and they said they wouldn’t have our first week stuff this week. So, we had to send the staff home on Thursday.
It sucked because we know there is a bunch of stuff that has to be done, but we have to sit on our hands since we don’t have what we need. I mean, it’s fun for a day or two, but we lost the entire week. We’re going to have to do a week’s worth of work later, like in the next month. It’s just more work later. Ugh.
We’re going to take a look behind the curtain now.
That part above was from about a month ago. I have spent the last month waiting for the support I needed from the client. Then looking over it. Then working on it while I’m supposed to be on other client’s work. It’s been a huge pain. Having that one staff to help out would have saved me a lot of time. Having that work earlier, would have saved me a lot of stress.
This feels like a massive waste of a title.
Nothing much has happened the last couple of days. No traumatizing dreams. No real spare thoughts.
I put in some solid hours yesterday. It’s so hard to tell if I’m working too slow, or if everything is messier than I think it is, or if I have too much work. Who knows. If this keeps up for the next couple of weeks, then I think I should say something to someone.
Yea, nothing much has happened.
I’ve been working out pretty consistently, so that’s cool. I started using this FitBit thing and an app that tracks your calories. I think I’m eating way better. I’m definitely consuming fewer calories and it’s making me feel better. I don’t feel as bloated, so that’s cool too. I need to start doing some yoga. I think I would like to be more flexible.
Hey, I’ll have a house in a week. I’ll also be moving our of the apartment in a week. This apartment ended up being a short part of my life. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t feel like much of change. Blah, I don’t really want to talk about the house. I’ll save that for a weekend.
I haven’t been sleeping enough. I think I’ll try to get a jump start on that tonight.
The total contrast of two days.
Yesterday the day dragged on and on. Today the day flew by.
Every 10 minutes felt like an hour. I would work for what felt like hours, then look at the clock, and only 20 minutes had passed. I would talk to someone for what felt like 30 mins, and only 10 minutes had passed. There was nothing I could do to make the day go by faster. It was almost agonizing. It also didn’t help that I went to lunch with the guys who like to eat at their desk. That was depressing. There is nothing sadder than eating at your desk.
Today was different. Today was better. It worked and time passed. By the afternoon, it almost felt like I was running out of time. I did get a lot of stuff done. I think I had some fun too. I do think I like my job. I like this public accounting thing.
I wonder what tomorrow will be like.
oh, yesterday I started my job search. No immediate success, but I’m nothing if not persistent.
It was s slow day.
I woke up around 6am, showered, and shaved. I got to work at 7am and went to Starbucks. I got some solid work done early in the morning. I had a delicious lunch and worked some in the afternoon. I left around 3:30pm because I was sleepy.
I got home around 4pm and immediately took a nap. I woke up around 7pm, eat, and went outside to get some air. Then it was 8pm and the big boss man was emailing me so I logged in for an hour. Then I watched an episode of Mad Men and now I’m here.
In retrospect, it was a quick 6 hours. I want more. The weekend spoiled me.
In other news, the boss man had his second kid on Sunday. In the short 2 and half years I have known him, he has gotten married, had a kid, and then and another kid. It scares me. Time really flies. I need to be careful or that stuff might happen to me.
Man, today went by to slow and too fast.
Work went by slow. There wasn’t a lot of work but there was a lot of waiting, which turned out to be equally unpleasant. I would almost prefer the work. That part of the day went by slow.
I got home around 7pm. Then I showered and ate and it was 8pm!
My sister need some help with her homework and the computer wasn’t cooperating so I helped. That’s when it was almost 9:30pm.
Now it’s 11:48pm. What happened to my free time?
I did watch the Clippers game. I thought they were going to make a THIRD comeback. They didn’t Then I flipped over to the Tonight Show because Alison Brie was a guest.
She made me jealous that I was not the previous guest because she kept touching his arm. I’m so jealous of that old comedian. Also! apparently she went to a masseuse salon in Burbank and was laying down naked getting massaged when another male patron walks in and sees her naked.
In conclusion, why don’t I live in Burbank?
Today felt slow when compared to some of the other days this week. I have a lot of miscellaneous stuff to do tomorrow. I’ll write about them tomorrow.
I graded papers today. It was fun to be on the other side of the grading process. It was a very interesting experience. Also, getting paid for two hours of grading shouldn’t be too bad.
Tomorrow’s post will be more interesting. Promise.
