Morning business feels good.
Woke up at 7:30am. Thought about going back to sleep for a bit but decided to brushing my teeth and get my day started. If I can make decisions like this every morning then my productivity level will increase.
While preparing myself to begin writing for tomorrow’s post I listened in on the conference call. Hearing words of wisdom always gets me pumped for the day. Besides that I had 2 hours before I had to be at work so I could be as productive as I wanted. I also wasn’t sure if I would have time for it later because my girlfriend had planned to come over.
Around 8:45am I took a break to have a bowl of cereal for breakfast. This is when I was notified by the lady I work with that our original meet time was going to be pushed back. She was at the tire shop getting her wheels serviced. Two of the rims were cracked and had to be welded. It would have been nice to just get a new set but the shop was out of spares.
When 10am came around I left the house to make my way over the meet with her. At first we were going to meet in a parking lot to regroup before the event but then decided to just meet at the event.
Really easy 4 hours.
Not to far from the parking lot we met at Seton Hall University to help celebrate their International Day. We did this event 2 years ago and it was a blast. I expected nothing less this time around.
Before getting started we had to go through a series of inspections. One for health which was a pain to pass and fire which was another pain in itself. The health guy can be a bit off at times but I think he is a nice guy. He just likes to do his job extra well. Fire on the other hand is an awesome guy. He thoroughly checked all of the equipment and might have saved our future lives. Let’s just say the equipment needs to be updated.
From 12 – 3pm the event went on. Within the first 2 hours we had met our contract. We moved the line quicker than we ever have servicing over 200 people. For the last hour we were cleaning up and by 3:15 driving away from the notorious school.
Within 20 minutes I was home in the shower enjoying the nice warm water as it hit my body.
Right after I jumped on the computer to put the finishing touches on my post. Then I tried to nap but my girlfriend had just gotten out of work. After talking a bit we decided she would spend the night at my house. Once again I laid my head down to try and sleep but felt guilty.
My father had asked me to take him to get a new pair of sneakers. I turned him down in desperation for some shut eye. But I kept thinking about it and how bad he needed them. The sneakers he wears looks horrible. I got up once again and got dressed.
We took our trip to Walmart to get a pair of shoes. I could not let him leave without two. He destroys shoes without thought so the cheaper the better. I’ve tried to get him expensive stuff in the past but within months $80 goes down the drain. He’s too rough.
Before leaving I treated him and I to a pair of slippers. Since he had 2 pairs of shoes I figure adding slippers to his closet would not hurt. Also bought the latest structure deck from Yu-Gi-Oh!
On the way home we stopped at Rita’s Italian Ice for the family. 2 vanilla custard cups, 2 gelatis’ and a mixed tray of 4 flavors.
Back home I washed clothes, checkout the cards and got busy with designing for the brand. I have a few hat ideas in mind that came out looking great. Shirts on the other hand not so much. Still working on that.
In bed late once again. 1am.
