Two awesome things happened today.

Felix Hernandez threw a perfect game. This makes me extremely happy.

Also....this:

The only thing I have going for me in life is my job. I hate my job. If I go to sleep, nothing can hurt me when I'm asleep, but sleeping too much just shortens the time between me not being at work and me being at work.
Bold = relevant to my life. Everyone gets on my case about getting more sleep. I like a good snooze as much as the next person, but I hate that it brings the next morning about so quickly. Yay! I get to waste another 10 hours of my life pretending to enjoy my job, and staring out the window! I don't HATE my job, but it bothers me how much time we spend doing them, when there are such better things to be doing.
Plus, if I didn't stay up late, I'd have no time for games, movie, reading, etc. So I can be well rested but grumpy because I have no time for entertainment, or I can be tired and enjoy myself for awhile. Most nights I choose the latter.


Both of these are quoted for truth. After awhile work really does become such a grind. To the point where you really feel like its all you ever do. I often have so much I want to do with my free time that I get overwhelmed and don't use it correctly.

I think overall human well-being would be boosted by 50% if the work week was only 4 days a week.  Hell, even if we worked an extra hour or so on the remaining 4 days.
I think there are companies that actually do this. Plus, isn't the work day/week a bit different over in Europe? Or is that Just France? Don't they do 36 hr work weeks or something? Or long lunches? I forgot exactly how it works. Basically, it's about having an understanding that people want to do more in life than just work.
I would do the 4 day work week thing. Then you could actually go somewhere and DO stuff with the longer weekend.

I dropped my son off at Kindercare for the last time this morning! He's excited about not going there anymore, and we're happy about having some extra dollars in our pockets(well, the virtual pocket).
Starting Monday he walks the 5 blocks to and from school, and gets to be home by himself for a couple hours a day. He's a pretty responsible kid, so I'm not TOO concerned. Still, he's kind of forgetful and moves awful slow in the morning(gee, I wonder where he gets that), so there's potential for trouble.
It's amazing how much money it costs to get a kid ready to start school. We've blown a few hundred dollars just on supplies and new clothes. Then there's the additional stuff like a bike lock, a freakin' umbrella, a new lunch bag, a new backpack, etc. Plus, Nan will have to buy more food so he can pack his lunch every day. So much for having any "extra" money.

At work I have the option of working two 12 hour shifts and a 16 hour shift. I'd have four days off but those long shifts are fucking killer.

And Grim- you can't forget extra keys.  Because inevitably, he's going to lose or forget his house key, and if you want to keep some with neighbors or whatever.  So that might be the straw the breaks the wallet.

That's actually one of the last things on the list! I'm going to stop tonight or tomorrow to get at least one, if not 2, made. There is a 100% guarantee that he will lose his key pretty quickly.

Really considering calling in sick tomorrow because my nerves are shot and I'm not being productive anyway, and could probably get a lot more done working from home. Is it still unethical to lie about being sick if doing so let's me actually get more work done?

Am I even lying about not feeling well at this point? Is a nervous breakdown a valid excuse to call in sick?

Do you have personal days?  Even if you don't, if you have sick days they should be yours to use.  Unless you would get in trouble if they found out, I'd use the sick days.

I would be so down with this. I hate when I have some random day off but then just have to work the next day. Its like my mind does not actually get any time to rest when I know I will just be back at work in less then 24 hours. 4 days off sounds just perfect.

My company actually has a four day/four and a half day work week for management ( in theory). In reality typically one week out of the month I actually get the third day off in the week.

Fucking Social Psych class.  The material is so goddamn easy, but the tests the prof makes are goddamn brutal.  I'm passing, but not by much, I'm worried as hell.
