Those for you that can remember back far enough will know that I’ve left my desk job and headed out to guard the ammo dump. Now, this is definitely a new experience for me and so far, it has ups and downs.
I work two days straight, four hours on, eight hours off, repeat. That is a huge down as I can’t leave to update the blog, relax, or anything of that sort. I end up sitting around the guard house talking, playing Playstation, or sleeping. Those eight hours off are really boring. In fact, the entire two days is really boring. I then get the next two days off to come back to the barracks and do whatever I want. The weekend shifts are different being you work Friday-Sunday or have it off, but during the week it is all two on, two off.
The training I’ve gotten so far is almost interesting but I will never really have the chance to do it. No one is stupid enough to even attempt a break-in over at the dump. If they did, they wouldn’t get very far as they would have the ASP Guard, the MPs, and probably some more people all over them.
I did get lucky and also get Monday off. I’m not sure what the other shift did to get another entire day of work (it’ll make four in a row for them), but its good stuff. I won’t miss Raw and I will get to talk to Anna longer on Valentine’s Day.
Blogging from me is going to be very light. I won’t be posting near as much as I used to but I will try to get some sort of regular schedule laid out once I can fully adjust to my new job.
