It's amazing just how little time you have when you're working nine to five each day. They only put me on fulltime last Wednesday and I guess I'm still adjusting. Even with Monday off for the New Year's holiday, already I'm wishing it was the weekend. Today I found that the new ceiling fan in my office was spinning backwards, blowing air upwards and that's why it was so hot in there.

A sudden subtle change in certain day to day activities can have dramatic effects on many other aspects of life. What were once idle pastimes are pushed aside as new priorities emerge. Altered sleeping patterns take their toll, the waking state of hurried morning preparations, preceded by only a few hours rest. The nights eaten away with tiresome and trivial tasks and thoughts of a million more constructive things that could be done.

A change is as good as a holiday, don't they say? Before too long though, I'm sure things will begin settle into a steady rhythm; they always do. Monotony however, is a killer.

Actually not the fan from my office, but you get the idea

Welcome to the world of working full-time.. I'm new to it too, and it's tough. But we'll manage. :)
