day shift, a new year present

finally, i am back to my morning shift. i am a normal person again: i am getting enough sleep, walking the morning streets refresh and more importantly having my social life.

i miss this shift since i was always a day shifter ever since i started working for the company until our management thought of changing our operation hours. i was one of the unfortunate employees that were chosen for the experiment to suceed and eventually it did.

when the management was already settled, they've conducted a shift bid. i was really worried of not getting the shift i preferred. since i am no longer studying---no more special treatments, i thought. nonetheless, it seemed like fate move on my side and gave me good evaluations that became my ticket to choose a day shift.

i am starting my shift from 8 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon now. its like working in a government agency except that they're breaks are almost half of their entire shift (no offense).

not because its new year but yesterday, i tried riding a jeep to work for a change. normally, i ride a cab because there are no direct line of jeep from my place in katipunan to the office. i actually have this attitude that as long as it would only take me one ride, regardless if this is to siargao(ofcourse this hyperbole---hehehe), it would be nearer than a two ride trip to my friends in cubao. but i thought i should begin to used myself in riding jeep to work or to any where i go. not only for practicality purposes but also for me to finally familiarize myself in the metropolitan streets.

but after having a bad experience with riding jeepnies through aurora-anonas going to tomas morato route (refer to previous post), i thought of going the other way around. i rode a jeep to UP diliman. then took another route going to pantranco. although it was almost an hour trip, i was still able to reach office 45 minutes earlier to my actual shift.

in addition, i already had my work out, watch the morning news and fixed my bed before going to work, which i NEVER do. seriously, i felt that i am beginning to be a better person now.
...
unfortunately, i woke up today late and took a cab again. well, who said changes are a one day process?
