That started on Tuesday and it was already weird getting up at 7am when I had no reason to get up for well... months. Actually, ever since I graduated in July. But you know, it's part of life and I've had worse, so it wasn't too bad. The job is not too complicated, but requires a lot of attention and care. It's easy to master, yet still a challenge to do it as fast as you can without making any mistakes. Wednesday went alright as well, but then I got asked if I wouldn't mind helping out at the post boxes... And me, of course, just had to say 'yes' to that.
You see, the post box sorting doesn't start at 8am like all the other mail. No, it's done long before that... because you start at work at 6am!!! Now, for some people, this will be easy. You get up at 4:30am or 5:00am, and you're instantly wide awake. No problem. I'm more a night owl than an early bird, though, and getting up at 7:00am is already a challenge... let alone getting up at 4:45am every day except Sunday... and on Sunday I go to the animal shelter, so no sleep for me either on those days.
But things are going quite alright so far. :) I've had my third day of getting up early and although I felt brain-dead when I got home, I didn't even need to take a nap! Still, I wonder how I'll be like on 24 December, after my last official day of working there. Well, my contract runs up to 5 January 2013, but they didn't think they'd really need me after the Christmas rush is over... And at the same time, the big boss there hinted that maybe after the Christmas holidays, we could talk about me staying there permanently. I think they know I could be a valuable asset to them in the management or such. I mean, I do have my bachelor's degree, I am quite smart, I pick things up easily... Maybe they would be willing to invest in my career with extra courses and such, so I can become part of the team that runs everything. :)
Other than that, I was supposed to have a job interview at McDonald's today... just the one place I've always tried to avoid, but they do offer great chances to grow to manager positions, so... It may be flipping burgers for a year or so, but I've got opportunities and willing to take them whenever they pop up! However, that job interview got cancelled, because the person holding it was ill. XD So no news yet on McDonald's and flipping burgers. I'll have to come back on the 18th now.
Still, my biggest dream right now - from all the job applications I've sent - is to be invited and accepted as junior employee animal emergency care. Impressive title but it basically means I'll have telephone duties and guide a group of volunteers. Still, it's for the local animal protection organization, and I'd just love to work there. The closing date was today, so... who knows... I hope I'll have some positive news soon! :D
Anyway, off to bed now, where I'll try to pull this dream job closer to me. ^^ I don't just want it, I know I'd be perfect for it too! (Now if only I could say that without any doubt...) And dreaming, of course, about Rei and Laurian and my 5_times challenge. :) I got a start... now the rest!
