It's a good evening that's wrapping up.  I'm about to read my Bible for the night and then go to bed by 22:00.  I did better with my alarm this morning, I think because I got motivated to get out of bed faster.  I didn't want to have to rush again like I did yesterday morning.  It was only an extra 20 minutes that I allowed myself this morning, but that was a big difference.  I still want to get up a little earlier than that tomorrow morning, so I think I may set my alarm about 10 minutes earlier from 5:45 to 5:35.  I'm just doing little things to tweak and fine tune my morning routine.

I left the house this morning on time and had everything I needed.  Or so I thought...  I realized when I was 2/3 of the way to work that I forgot something... My lunch...  I had to scramble and was only able to have snacks for lunch...  I suppose I should eat something a little more substantial and healthy tonight.

What do you normally eat for lunch, and what did you eat today?

I usually have something very light.  I usually have either Ramen, a lunchable, or Dinty Moore Beef Stew, or something along those lines.  I know they're not the healthiest options, but they're quick that I can heat up and consume in under 30 minutes without rushing.  Today, I had to resort to snack machine cookies...

Bushie have you considered botox injections for your headaches? I'm back in Texas and watching TV, and they have all these advertisements here that you don't see when you watch shows on your computer, and one of them is for botox injections for people with chronic headaches. The website is: botoxchronicmigraine.com.

I have not considered that, yet.  To me that's a last resort if they become completely uncontrollable.  They're not to that point, yet, thankfully.

Good Wednesday Evening!  Today was probably the best day I've had of the 8 days I've been there.  There were no mistakes, really.  I didn't accidentally reverse any work.  I'm starting to pinpoint my errors a little better.  There are still things I need to watch out for, but overall my body of work is improving.  I'm on to Work Night #9 now and will leave for church at 1815.  I should be home by 2020 and I'll get my shower right after I get home tonight and then go to bed at 2200.  Last night, I was getting so sleepy that I went to bed at 2115.

Good Wednesday Morning!  I am up and ready for another fantastic day - Day 8.  I'll leave here at 0705 this morning to get there by 0730.  Tonight is Week 2 of the Discipleship Training Bible Study at Lynn Lane Baptist Church.  That goes from 1830-2000.  Have a good hump day, everybody!

While I understand that Bushie's history makes it almost necessary to question every detail, I feel like we're at the point where most of the things happening to him (not posting before work, moving on to a new project) are things that happen in a normal workplace with a normal person

Indeed.  Very concerned : (

There's nothing to be concerned about.  Every employee at some point doesn't have time to post on social media before going to work and the things I am doing at work are stuff everybody deals with.  I don't know why you're making a big deal out of every minor detail.

Because you lie about major details and try to pass them off as minor details. Only a fool would take everything you say at face value.

While I don't disagree with that, I can say something that is true - I am doing the best job I can taking care of this job.  It's time people start seeing my employment as that of a normal person.  Because you know what?  I am normal.  I am just like everyone else.  I am no better and no worse.

Anyway, it's hard to believe that I'm nearly halfway through with Week 2 at work.  It's been an amazing experience so far and I'm looking forward to many more weeks and getting settled in and experience.

Due to not having anything to do when I first get there as I am between projects, I have decided to go in at 0800 instead of 0730 tomorrow.  I'll still get off at 1630.  My boss doesn't usually get there until 0815 or 0830 so I don't want to spend 45-60 minutes of my shift doing nothing.

Uh oh...

What's going on?

Nothing.  I'm just in between projects right now, so I don't have anything to do until he gives me a new project to work on.   I don't want to waste his time by going in at 0730.  I'd rather go in at 0800 which is closer to the time he arrives so I can waste as little of his time as possible.

Aren't you the guy who chose to come to work 45 minutes early to, what was it, go to the bathroom, do some bible study, lubricate your throat with some Dr. Pepper, boot the computer, and do general unnecessary things?

I may have done that before, though not to that extreme, but it was not on company time and has not been in this job.

After thinking about it, I am going to go on in at 0730 tomorrow.  My shift is officially 0730-1630, so I need to be there by 0730.  I can probably find something to do until my boss gets there.

What time did you make it into work?

7:25, which is the time I normally get there.

Why is he leaving half an hour early?

He has the option of taking a shorter lunch.

Add to that I now start at 0730 instead of 0800.  I still take a shorter lunch, but I work until 1630 instead of 1600 so I can take off early Friday.

Good Tuesday Evening!!  I woke up late this morning and had no time to update Facebook, but I did make it to work on time.  Day 7 was really good.  No mistakes today.  Work Night #8 is underway.  Tonight, I'm mainly going to watch baseball at 18:00, then get my shower at 21:00, read my Bible at 21:30, then go to bed at 22:00.  I am going to set my alarm a little earlier in the morning so I can get up in plenty of time to wake up before I start driving across the city of Tulsa.

What's up, guys?  I'm on a little break in between projects.  I was running late this morning so I didn't have time to post.  I still made it to work on time, though.  I'll be getting off at 16:30.  I'll post when I get home.

Normally, you would be right, but I had chocolate pudding for lunch, ate it slow, and did not get a headache.  Tonight, I had chocolate cake for dessert, ate it slow, and only have a minor headache.  It is definitely nowhere near migraine level.  I will still likely take some medicine because it could turn into a migraine and I want to protect Day 7, but right now it is nowhere near bad enough to call in tomorrow.

Why do you eat something that makes you ill? I get sick from shrimp, so I just don't eat it. My aunt gets bad indigestion from onions, so she doesn't eat them. Chocolate is much more avoidable than onions... this is like a basic human nature instinct that you manually override for some strange reason.

I could have thrown out the chocolate pudding at lunch, but the cake was already cut for me with ice cream on top before i had a chance to speak up, so I didn't want to be rude.  I think the ice cream may have helped soften the potential blow and the cake ran out long before the ice cream, so I was able to end my dessert with several bites of ice cream.

Bushie had chocolate cake twice today? RIP job Sad

Not today, boss.  Like I said I have a moderate headache, but it is nowhere near migraine status.  I'll be going to work tomorrow.  This could be the same headache I had since I left for work this morning.  It's always been, at worst, a Grade 5 today which is just moderate.  I think once or twice it may have briefly touched Grade 6 but then it came right back down.  It could have been a big mistake, but I am thinking the fact that I ate them both slow may have helped.  I'm not going to intentionally do that very often, because if you play with fire too much, you're going to get burned.

Bushie's life is so surreal. I've never had anyone ask me to come over to play boardgames at night.

Presumably the person isn't an adult, so that'd explain a lot.

No, he's about my age, the Youth Minister at the church.  There's nothing childish about loving board games.

Just for the record, I am not going to answer any questions on my porn habits.  This is not the venue for that and that's for my eyes only. Smiley

I'm home from a really good Men's Dinner and Bible Study.  The food was delicious with hamburger steak, baked potato, corn on the cob, and chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert.  I found a friend who likes to play board games as much as I do, so I now have a game partner.  The youth minister said he has big shelves full of board games.  He invited me to play a game with he and some of his buddies tonight and I would have accepted, but I like to get to bed by 2200.  Maybe on a night when I don't have anything to do I can go over there and take him up on the invite.  I will have to do that very soon.  For tonight, though, I am going to play on the internet for the next 45 minutes and then go to bed around 2200 or 2215.
