07:22 am: So much to do, so little time.
It's been quite a busy time for me since my last update. I started the day after my return from Japan by waking up early to finish cleaning my apartment for company. I also made a trip to the next town to pick up the new pair of eyeglasses I ordered. That afternoon, Jenn, her friend, and mangaroo came over for an Avatar marathon. We took a break in the evening to have a takoyaki supper. Jenn and her friend stayed the night, and we got up early the next day to continue watching, making it partway through the third season.

I started work on Tuesday the 25th, beginning nine consecutive days at the airport. (That's what happens when the scheduled days off are Sunday/Monday one week and Thursday/Friday the next.) It's rough to go that long without a break, particularly when new bosses are coming out in Warcraft and I have stacks and stacks of new books to read.

One bright spot is that my guild finally defeated the boss Yogg-Saron in the 25-man Ulduar raid. We had been working on that one for a long time.

Now that I've had my Thursday/Friday off, I'm feeling much better. I'm starting to make some headway on my stacks of books. I'm hoping my future work schedules are finalized soon, because I'm hoping to take a weekend off in October to fly back to Michigan.

but then to go from vacation mode to nine straight days at work? Ouch.

It was worst Monday night when I tried to attend my Tae Kwon Do lesson in the evening and spent half the class sitting against the wall to stop my head from spinning. Then I woke up at 3am Tuesday and couldn't go back to sleep. It got better after that.

How often do your days off shift?

Usually it's the same two days for two weeks in a row. Occasionally it only lasts one week, usually to compensate for someone else being on vacation. This is complicated by the fact that it's possible to swap with other people.

That is, will you be on a Thursday/Friday off schedule for a while, or have you already changed?

This week I'm Thursday/Friday, next week I'm back to Sunday/Monday.
