I’m feeling lazy again on a Friday and because it is the long weekend ahead … I can’t help but think of off-work hours.
It’s bad, I know. Sometimes I like my job. Sometimes I don’t. At some times, I don’t care if the heat exchanger is going to foul and what not … (but this is only when I’ve hit my lowest point). I have been boggled with extra work though. A colleague of mine recently had a baby girl, and so I had to take over his responsibilities for about two weeks. In a way, it was good because I get to be the contact engineer for a while and gain learning experience. However, I’m a little worried now with my projects as I don’t have much time until my next rotation starts. I do want to complete them to some measurable extent.
I had fun yesterday in the control room. I love Team 5, they are an easy-going bunch … although they tease me a lot but at least, I feel welcomed there. All these years, I’ve encountered lots of people having trouble pronouncing my name. However, I made an interesting discovery yesterday as to the an operator’s effort in remembering my name. He says the first part of my name sounds like a shoe. The other part is like the name “Ann”. Not too long after he proudly explained his method, he conjured up another bright idea to give me the title “Bootann”.
Boot … (they always have safety boots on at work)
Funny. They’re a nice bunch. Another operator chose to call me Shania. I don’t know how that has any similarties to my chinese name . It is definitely not because of resemblance of looks, I can tell you that much.
I’m trying to drive on my own now into e-town. Just like they say, it is a totally different environment in a big city. People are more impatient … abundant cars appearing out of nowhere … traffic congestion … more pedestrians on the road (I don’t want to hit anyone!). Either way, whether or not I get into an accident or somewhat … I need to learn how to drive in these conditions sooner or later!! I can have Jackie or my parents worrying about me but I can’t have them guiding me all the time …
It’s 11.30. I’m leaving work now, tee-hee. Half-day lerrrr!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (Don’t gobble up too much turkey)
