It’s just hit 2:30am and I’m sitting here at work, except it’s not my usual place of work – I have to fill in a few shifts at a sister resort while their night staff are on leave. Everything is similar, yet so different. I can usually do the bulk of the work in 45 minutes for the first half, 25 minutes for the second half. Yet here it takes from 4 and a half hours. It’s not that they’re more thorough here, it’s just their way of doing it all.
My paperwork fits into an A4 envelope quite comfortably at work, but here you’d need about six. It’s crazy! I don’t know this area much, and I don’t enjoy the 45 minute drive home after finishing an hour later than normal. So I’m now getting to bed 90 minutes later than normal and by then, the sun is well up, the heat is kicking in and hope for a loooong sleep is lost.
Thankfully I only have one shift left after this. I’m not saying it’s a bad place here, but I’m just not comfortable with it.
In non-work related news, I’ve lost 6kg in two weeks. SIX! Wow. I’m not really that hungry, either, even though I haven’t been eating much. Even the chocolate fudge and Karaage I cooked up last week didn’t add to my belly. That makes me happy. I’ll be super-happy when I’ve lost another 4kg or so, because then it will be noticeable and friends will be all like “Hey, did you lose weight?”
That’s the fudge I made. It’s got crushed Raspberry and White Chocolate Tim Tams coating. So yum!
My Japanese is coming along great, but this lot of Kanji I’m doing now totally sucks. It’s hard. Too hard. Like 下. In different contexts it apparently can be read as した、げ、か、さ. And 曜 just hurts to write. Ditto 週.
And that’s it for me for now. Have an awesome week!
