On any given week I have two days off. Normally it happens in a row and it never lands on a weekend. Management has always been in control over this happening. If I wanted a weekend off I would have to request it and 9 times out of 10 it was required that I use a vacation day or something of that sort be sorted to make it happen. Now this sounds like a trivial thing but if you work at night and on a weekend this isn’t a Trivial thing to think about.
I am also under the mindset that management is in control over pretty much whatever goes on at work. If I am doing a good job management should make that clear. If something isn’t being done.. again management should make that clear. Thus far it has worked that way and communication has never been an issue. I bring up problems and I leave it to management to settle that.
Now what does any of this have to do with my life o Nocturnal? In the time that I have settled my life this way work has been the core. If my job requested me to work during the day I would probably go back to being a day time person. It’s my own habits and my own ruling that make it all work. Foundation is what is happening here and that is what we are talking about this time.
Now last month my management changed for reasons untold to me. So for the past month “Almost exactly today”. I have been dealing with new management and all that has gone into what my job is. In truth I didn’t expect it to change much because my job is very very routine. I can pretty much make a step by step plan for how the 8 hour shifts will go. What the store requires to happen for it to run correctly. Trut with time I refine and even improve some of my methods but that comes with experience I BELIEVE.
So far it’s work for my benefit and I have thus witnessed massive improvements in the work I do. Organization I have always felt is key to make things work and so far I feel it’s working. How it’s effected me in regards to this I will now have more time for myself to work on weekends. Visit family and friends.. Make things work better for myself in that I can interact with family now that I will have some weekend time to do so!
Is it going to change the Nocturnal Life of me? No.. because this is the life I have and regardless that experience is going to translate into this. We will see what happens from here on out. This being post 4 I think it’s going in a positive direction.
