Well, I'm still here. I ended up getting a nasty headcold, so I spent my first day off laying in bed (except for when I had to run to the 7-11 for more tissues and dayquil). The work isn't too bad, for the most part. I enjoy trying to figure out just what the fuck has gone wrong, but it's nice when it all works out in the end. When it doesn't work out I feel pretty shitty though. I actually have my own office here (with my own key!), but sadly I have to share it with the receptionist. On the one hand, it does mean I'm not interrupted constantly by people calling to book tours, but on the other hand I have to listen to her talking to her family (and sometimes booking tours) while I try to work. My office also lacks any kind of air conditioning or windows, so it gets pretty toasty in there.

I think the best part of my job is the freedom I have now. If I run down to the main lobby to check on something, and I get tied up for another 15 minutes, no one seems to notice or care. Not that I'm totally slacking off or anything, but it's nice to be able to take the long way and admire the mountains instead of running all the time (I still run though, particularly if I'm bringing something down to the desk for a customer).

The worst part of the job is that I have even less of a life than I did at Food Lion. My day is pretty much:

Get up at 6am.
Shower, shave, eat.
Get on the bus at 7:30am.
Start work at 7:50am.
If I'm lucky, catch the 6pm bus home.
If I'm unlucky, or I have to work late, I can only catch the bus once an hour.
Get home and (if it's before 8pm) get dinner.
Sit in the rec room from 8pm to 11pm so I can use the internet.
Go to bed.

On Mondays and Saturdays I work 10am to 8pm so I can run the train sales. The train is supposed to get in at 6pm, but has been late every day so far. That puts me getting home at 9pm or later.
