Maybe it’s just me, but time is just disappearing lately. It’s already February and I can’t believe it.
I can’t say much has happened last month, besides my job interview and getting a new job in IT. I went for my first hour’s training on Wednesday. Sitting with Jonathan, I felt that familiar feeling of information overload. For some reason it happens to me every now and again and it feels like I cannot absorb what’s going on. On Thursday, it felt like I’d gotten to understand what was going on. I read part of the FSS for the project I’m going to be working on and it gave me some idea of what it was all about. I’ve not been back for more training. Jonathan wants me to sit with one of the call centre agents to gain more understanding of what the program’s about. This is going to happen on Tuesday at the earliest, since it was month end and Monday’s are also busy.
Sticking with work, my replacement is ready to go. He was ready after three days training, really, so most of the time, I’ve been sitting around twiddling my thumbs and wishing I was able to answer the phones. I am glad of the new job, but at the same time, I’m going to miss the phones. I have friends at work, but my real friends are on the other end of the phone line. Mostly technicians on the road. I’ve only met one, Jaco, who is one of my best friends. The other is Jean, in Durban, who I look forward to meeting sometime in the near future.
On a more personal note, my ribs and back and everything is finally feeling better. I’ve been on cataflam for ages, but have not needed any for the last 3 days. The doc says they are not addictive, but it still does not make me any happier about being dependent on them. I’ve got an appointment with the gynecologist and another with the orthopedic surgeon later in the week. Even though I’m feeling better, we’ve not canceled the latter appointment.
We don’t often go out on weekends. Today, Marc went out, to Charles, since he’s having PC problems. I’ve been fooling around online and watched re-runs of Providence and Sue Thomas FB-Eye. Then, a little later, I fell asleep. It seems like Saturdays are my days to catch up on lost sleep or something. I don’t know why. My body must need it, because I always feel better on Sunday and it’s not messing with my sleeping pattern. This weekend, I didn’t sleep as much as last Saturday. Who am I to deny my body sleep, if it is in need?
