So the weekend sucked. And now it’s going to be Monday in a few hours. And I work next weekend. And I had work this morning. And I need to stop starting sentences with and. Basically the next time I have time to myself is the weekend after next. Guess what weekend that is. Yup, 14 February. FML. Bloody Valentine’s day. At least it’s a weekend which means I can stay at home and avoid all the idiots outside. My 28th Valentine, alone as usual. Anyone want to be my Valentine? Oh then the weekend following that, I will be working again. Yay!
The weekend duty/roster caught me off guard in this new job. I rotate with 2 other people in my team which means I work every 3rd weekend. I didn’t think it would be this frequent. Nor did I think it would be on Saturdays and Sundays without a break. I thought I would be compensated with comparable time off, but for the 17-18 weekends plus 4 public holidays you work in a year, you get only 3 days off a year. Doesn’t sound so fair to me. They let us work from home so they say 3 days is plenty. But they don’t realise you are sitting at your laptop from 7am to 4pm, though you are at home. I even need to have lunch at my laptop. I am going to feedback this. Hope they do change something. Working 12 days with no break is challenging.
It’s okay though, I am trying to focus on the positive. I have a job, i.e. income. Life is comfortable. As I have mentioned before if something better is meant for me, it will come my way. I have got to keep the faith in that.
Oh and I saw this online and related:
