After 6 years of salary-based work, where when you have nothing to do, you leave work, I find myself struggling through this transition to hourly-based work. As I write I am 15 minutes from the end of my shift with nothing to do but write a blog post. There is no one in the gym (I really should just leave) but yet I know that by staying I mysteriously make more money, which is much appreciated.
I don't particularly like this feeling, but I will persevere over the coming 4 years, keeping in mind that I have a long, salaried career ahead of me. Well, enough of my incoherent rambling when I should be working. Bye for now!
