I have also been doing well, Kilmarnock, thank you. :) My older brother's wedding was last Saturday, and I was an usher. It was a wonderful day, and a lot of friends and family came from hundreds of miles away to attend the celebration, so it was busy. Actually, things have been busy in general of late; I recently got my driver's license, and made my first application for a part-time job a couple weeks ago. So things look like they'll be changing a bit, which is a 10% exciting and 90% frightening for me. How have things been going at your place? :)
No worries, by the way; I understand completely. We all get busy sometimes, and some of those times are longer than others. ;)
Oh, very nice! Oh, not a lot been happening my way; I work a night shift full-time. That's actually part of how I got into the series in the first place; audiobooks are about the only way I can survive the grind.
You’re totally fine. I work a data entry job, which means I get to sit at a computer for hours at a time (apart from short hourly breaks and a lunch). Don’t really know anybody there and conversation on the workroom floor is prohibited except in certain areas, so I mostly listen to audiobooks and the occasional podcast. If I ever seem like I have freaky knowledge of the books, it’s because I’ve listened to them all at work a half a dozen times or so and will undoubtedly be listening to them again.
I like aspects of my job: good pay, good benefits, and the fact that it’s not a retail position. Working the night shift is not so great, but at present it’s the only way to insure that I can go to church on Sundays. Business also tends to pick up around the holidays, and that means mandatory overtime. But on the flip side, I’m not on the receiving end of angry customers or clients.
That sounds nice, in a way, although I don't think I'd (personally) like it too much. It does explain how you remember so much from The Green Ember series, though. ;) Listening to audiobooks sounds great, and I can certainly relate to your aversion to retail jobs. I personally don't think I'd be very good at retail myself, partially due to my introverted nature and social anxiety. It's great, though, that you are able to be content with the benefits your job has to offer, and that you are so committed to being able to attend church. Do you have to sleep during the day in order to work a night-shift?
