Make The Tired Go Away

Salutations minions. I come before you after having gone through about four hours sleep, and spending all day at work, and reading 17 hours of blog updates. Because I didn't get to do any reading before going out. I need an iPod/iPad in order to read blogs when I'm at work. That is if I go to work more often.

I do have some guest posts, so if you've sent me one and I haven't published it yet, don't worry I really am going to post them. For now though I'm actually kinda finding myself with something to write about.

I actually had a very very bad start to my day. I woke up really early (like I just said) and I didn't get much sleep. After that I went to a cafe for some breakfast, only to sit there for an HOUR. AN HOUR because they forgot to make my food. I had an appointment to run to and had to go out. The guy was nice though, he apologized and he gave me a refund and let me have the tea that came with my food for free. Plus I do really like the place, I'm willing to let it slide.

After that on the way to the appointment, I nearly got run over by a guy who looked suspiciously like my boss. I confronted him about it later and he says it wasn't him. I wouldn't put it past him. When I got there (I was going to the job centre by the way) I found out that the person I was going there for wasn't there.

After that I went to work, which wasn't actually too bad. See I make bad decisions when tired. It turns out that this was the first time I had gone to work in six months. That's right folks, it had been six months. That's the joy of voluntary work. My boss complained a bit that I should have called, but I said he should have called too. Me and my boss have a weird relationship. He thinks we get on better than I think we do, but he is a pretty cool guy. I do have some fun with him really. He's done some bad shit too though, but overall he's pretty cool. But never tell him I said that.

I think on average my day has been pretty decent, except of course for the morning, and the reasons for just why I went into work after six months and stayed there all day despite wanting to leave several times because I had things to do at home. Things I'm now too tired to do. No you can't know what that reason was.

But yeah, decent day I think.

God I hope this blog doesn't become journalistic. PLEASE GOD DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN.

    1. Well last night I woke up at four to be ill, so maybe tonight I'll sleep decently.

      I doubt it.

  2. I'm with you on the getting to sleep horribly thing. Recently our clocks went forward an hour though so I've been having to deal with a bit less sleep, it's been tough to adapt. Hopefully tomorrow day's a better one for you buddy, at least that driver who looked oddly like your boss didn't connect with you.

    1. The clock change hasn't really affected me much, so I'm alright with that. I can look on the positive sides.

  5. I make the best decisions on little sleep. The thing is, when I am well-rested, I overthink everything.

    1. I am exactly the same. Anyone who has talked to me properly will tell you this. When I'm tired I stop overthinking, and I can make decisions.

  6. Was it worth waiting an hour to get free tea?

  9. My blog's been journalistic for the most part for over a year now, c'mon, no biggie.
    But it's voluntary work so you can't be obliged to do anything. He shouldn't be complaining.

    1. I don't want to bother the world with my problems. I don't want to be the kind of person who writes a blog that is basically "WOE IS ME, MY LIFE IS AN ENDLESS LINE OF UTTER CRAPPERY!" He says I'm not really reliable. He can't really complain but he did make some points.

  10. What's strange was that I read this post and envisioned cartoons to illustrate your harrowing day. Almost getting run over by a guy who looked like your boss and having him deny it? Yeesh!

    1. If I could draw cartoons I'd probably consider it. I think you've done too many cartoons. He really insists it wasn't him. Plus the van that the guy was driving wasn't at work, and he lives right next to the place anyway, so he has no need to drive to work, it takes him just a few minutes to walk.

  12. How do I get a job where I can just take 6 months off? I want that!

    1. You do voluntary work where you don't get paid and end up losing money by paying for lunch and bus fare :P

  13. You sound like a different person in this post, you sound like you've been replaced by aliens... not work in six months? thats a long time, but since its voluntear work does it even count?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It counts even more as work than when you're getting paid, I think because you're doing it to help other people gratis.

    2. I would be with you on this Anne if I did it to be selfless. What can I say Bersercules, I was tired as Hell when I wrote it. I don't think I sound that different though.

  14. I read the comments and saw you didn't sleep because you were ill. I was hoping it was because you were having an all night shag!!

    1. Sadly no it wasn't caused by that, I ran out of batteries.

      I'm kidding, I'm kidding.

      It can be charged on an adapter.

    1. I've only known my boss to fire two people. I think I've probably deserved firing a few times though.

  16. An iPod/iPad? Why don't you buy a two smartphones with data plans, a non-Apple laptop and a used car instead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because the smart phone I do have, complete with data plan, doesn't like running blogger, and doesn't like running blogs either for the most part. Other than an i-device, my only real option would be a mobile internet plan and taking my laptop to work. Not to mention my work has very very bad phone reception. I get text messages sometimes an hour plus later.

  17. I feel I can think better when I've not had much sleep, and I hate it when the clocks change. It kind of makes me feel jet-lagged for a couple of days. But then I love the early mornings, the light is beautiful and we have been having really hot weather lately.
    I'm a "Power-Napper" or I like my cat-naps. I would love to be a cat...maybe I was in a previous life.
    As for iPods/iPads, I get totally lost! As long as I can actually make a phone call then that is fine with me!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think better when I'm tired but I'm still tired. I am prone to making notes in bed when I'm trying to get to sleep. I can adjust to the clocks moving pretty quickly, most of the time it's because I'm still awake when the change happens :P I'm not good with naps, it takes me so long to get to sleep they seem pointless to me.

      I know what kind of iPod I would get, being able to make calls is all I demand from a phone. My old phone worked fine still despite being years old but I took a chance on getting a Blackberry to talk to Jessie so took it.

  18. You get to go in whenever you want? And can just not go in for 6 months? Did I read that right? What kind of awesome job is that?

  19. Haha! I could spend days on your blog.
    Unfortunately Ive discovered that at the wrong time considering I have 5 law school exams to give in the next 5 days!!

    You've left me curious though. I WANT to know the reasons!! Will you tell us in your next post?

    Also, i read the your post on sexist women. :)

  29. you need to really find time to sleep as 6-8 hours a day, that's according to i don't know. hehe..

    1. I try to get 6-8 hours, but I always wake up during the night, or I don't get enough REM. I'm just a volunteer at a charity shop, I don't have to turn up if I don't want to.

  30. See, I have an idiotic relationship with my boss. He thinks that my hard work means that I want to work there forever, despite that I have told him I'm trying to get an office job in the company. I just work hard because I need a good reference when I'm out of that shit hole, and because i like being respected for being a hard worker

    So Mark, do you know what today was? You got out of your house today. You went to your job (Voluntarily, none-the-less). Sure, maybe some dickhead forgot to make your food, but what the fuck ever. It happens. it shouldn't, but it does. Mark, today was the first of many good days you've got in your future. Everything's gonna go right for you, I fucking know it. And this post is the proof that it's starting. You're getting there, bro. I'm proud of you. yes, I did get a bottle of whiskey from a co-worker today, and yes, I may be somewhat drunk, but goddamn dude, you're getting there. You're wearing down that fucking wall. Wear that bitch down.

    1. My boss thinks I care about the children. To be honest not even I'm entirely sure why I work there. It isn't for the children. Good luck getting an office job though. Maybe you won't get some whiskey from your work friends if you do though.

      Can these good days not come in sequence? I mean, I like good days and all, but it's hard to focus on them when you have shit days inbetween. I got out of my house because I had to, and then going to work was a snap decision I made. If I make the conscious effort to go out just to go to work, then I'll be agreeing with you. But thanks man, you always leave awesome comments when you're drunk. Here's hoping I am in fact getting there.

    You never have to go anywhere, remember that. You choose to. Never sell yourself short. On a crazy, serious note, you are one of the few reasons I keep checking my bullshit blogger shit. Maybe, yes, there is bullshit there, but it is not from me. or it is from me.. You're getting there. Do not sell yourself short. It is a journey of thousands of steps, not one. There is no try. Do, or do not.

    1. Actually there is a try. I really don't believe there's no such thing as no trying. You should be crazy and serious more often dude.

  34. Can't say that a good night's sleep will ensure a good day the next day, but it's sure better than being tired - which is the way I feel now.

  35. I'm like a drunken Yoda. I remember almost nothing I posted by here. Stand by it, though, although maybe not the visiting England thing. I had a blast last time I was there when I was in high school, but it's waaaay to expensive to happen in the near future.
