Not a Caffinator Anymore

It became abruptly obvious after getting back my tests from the last two weeks that the time I've spent working has had a detrimental effect both on my sleep and the time available for study.

It doesn't help when you specifically say, can work three days a week, with at least a day between work so I can get homework done... And not Tuesday or Thursday nights.

Which means I can work M,W,Fri and one day on the weekend for not more then three total in a week.

The last two week schedule had me working M,W, F, Sa, Su, M, W, Sa, Sun.

That is more then three each week. 5 Last week and 4 this week.

They were also mix of opening and closing shifts, and in the case of this Sunday I got up at 8 am, studied until ~2:30pm, worked from 3:00pm - 11:00p, studied for a morning test from 11:30-4:00am went to open at 5:30-9:00, Class till 4:00, worked from 5-10:30.

In between 4-5 I went to the main office and gave my notice. I'm finishing up the week but that's it.

I open Wed, Close Saturday, Mid-shift Sunday and then I am done.

I've been up since 8:00 am yesterday. I'm going to go get 8 hours of sleep before getting up to study for my Japanese quiz tomorrow.


  1. Are you going to find a more student friendly job?

  2. Well, that's the hope. First I;m going to spend a couple weeks recovering from the debacle of working the job has rendered onto my GPA.

    And sleep schedule...

  3. No sleep + Gordon = ANGRY UNHAPPY Gordon.

  4. I like to be called, "El Vox de Experienco"

    My Gordon Manual states that, "Should Gordon manage to work himself into a state of intense sleep deprivation, leave a scantily clad lady dressed in chocolate holding a fresh pot of perfectly made coffee outside his door. Once devoured and sleep restored Gordon will be happy. At least for the time being."

  5. This is why I love you more and more with every passing day.

  6. Aw, shucks. You know it's just because I love you, too ;-)
