Despite the fact that this was all set up to be one of the most productive days I’ve had in a long time, I feel like it ended up being a total waste of a day.
I started with actually getting up at the inspiring hour of 7:00am. This is a rarity for someone who usually has no reason to get up at all in the morning (or afternoon for that matter). I finished building my desk, and proceeded to move the new one out, and reassemble the computer on the new one. That completed, I re-organized the now box-free dining room area.
So far so good.
By that time, I had to go take a shower and get ready to go to my interview. So off I trundled to interview for a job I wasn’t really sure about – and I think my hesitation really came through in what was already a not great interview. Tomorow’s project will involve what damage control I can muster up.
While I was out, I got a call from my boss asking me if I could cover a shift for tonight – so I figured that the gym could wait, yet again, until tomorrow (it’s already been waiting about a week) and that I’d fill in. Well I just got back from that shift. A shift that entailed two and a half hours of sitting around waiting for a customer, any customer, then giving up and closing.
I’m also realizing how much I absolutely and completely hate not having a car. I know I’m in just about the best possible location (for me at least) when it comes to taking transit where I need to go. It’s just that it takes so damn long. I could drive most places downtown inside of 15 minutes. Instead I get to take the skytrain and usually hike a few blocks. I was also looking at the address of this place that I interviewed for today – driving directions should take me about 11 minutes. The most efficient bus route will take 40 minutes.
I just hate this feeling like I’ve been running around all day, and still got nothing done. Does anyone have any suggestions?
