then, instead of going to the micro lab, i went to the clinical lab. yes, for the first time in five months i worked an evening shift. the whole thing goes by fast because there is so much chaos! but it was a good change of pace. i found it amusing the newer hires from day shift were giving me a quizzical "who are you?" look and the regular days were giving me a "you're here early... WAIT WHAT TIME IS IT ANYWAY?" look. one of the eve phlebs was asking me to speak to her in mandarin, her native language. even after insisting i am so terrible at everything besides english (and at times even the english is bad) i cobbled together the sentences of my "my name is 黃秀英" and "i don't speak chinese language". she laughed and said i sound like her young children. U___U
eve shift finished at 11pm but now i'm feeling so awake since i normally start work at that hour! le boyfriend picked me up and we had midnight dinner at sushi king. they have awesome midnight specials! my poor honey bunny had to get up at 4am to go to his job and stayed up to pick me up from mine (but at least he had time to download the destiny beta for ps4 while he was waiting for me, haha that sucker apparently takes hours to download). we had curry specials and shared sashimi... so worth the wait! then a
and that should be the end of the story to a fantastic summer day.
i could not stay asleep.
i attempted to sleep and managed a few hours... got up at 3am then dozed until 5am. then i gave up and watched tour de france (i've been following everyday since it started, i'll have to air my grievances in another post) until 7am, the hour i usually get off work. then i slept until 11am (i know, terrible) and now have the meanest caffeine deprivation headache! when i got up at 3 i should've had a cup of coffeeeeeeeee...
i'm working my regular schedule tonight hope my inner clock is back in synch.
