Or Third Shift. Whatever.
Yes, yes, you heard correctly, I once again have found myself confined to the lightless realms of third shift. What did I do to earn myself this punishment, you ask? Nothing bad! I swear!
In fact, I guess you could say in a way that I asked for it. I applied to be a Lead for my department. While I’ve held that position title before at GD, it was on the floor and was just a stepping stone on the road to being a Supervisor, in this department (where there are no actual Supervisors), it actually fills that role.
SO, I once again find myself in a situation wherein I am responsible for the productivity of others and am answering questions, etc. It’s interesting, that’s for certain. It is taking me a bit of time to get used to making decisions for others again (as opposed to only having to be answerable to myself, which was nice).
I will also tell you for free that I’m not adjusting as well to third shift again as I usually do. At first I thought that it was just that I had spent so little time on First and I had been so burned out that I wasn’t truly RESTED, but now I’m concerned that there may be a health issue or something. I’m actually manning up and facing my White Coat Syndrome and will be going to the doctor tomorrow morning after work to get some tests run so that I can establish what the hell (if anything) is wrong with me. Wish me luck.
And that’s pretty much all I’ve got. Sorry it took so long to write and I do not at all promise to write more frequently, since nobody reads this anyway.
