Getting to that Point Again

Thinking back over work yesterday, the shift on a whole went well, but several small things that have been issues for a while are wearing my patience extremely thin. I was going to write a post about this for the co_workers_suck community on here, but including the draft of that I have open in another tab, I currently have four drafts open, and it's already 9:40pm, leaving me both confused and ever-increasingly short for time. As such, I will start with this, and if those things continue to be issues throughout the weekend, I will then write that post, and get them off my mind. On the good side of things though, after my supper shift tomorrow, my schedule is back to the same closing throughout the week with Tuesday and Thursday off as before. Maybe that will continue right up until I leave for Toronto. Without further ado though, the following is a list of things from yesterday that I found particularly... memorable.

As for today, it's gone pretty well, but I don't usually find myself writing entries in here so late at night, so I'm not sure what to say. I slept in today, which was nice, because I wanted to for once, and because I needed it, after people working outside kept waking me up between ~10 and 12. Following that, Mom and I went out to get groceries, which I was originally planning to walk home from, but am glad I didn't, because that would've left me with less time to work on my Christmas gifts, which are absolutely all ready to go for December now. The ones I have thus far, that is. I taped the paper on all of them together more securely, and stuck a label on every single one, so although it's largely meaningless at this point, I'm one step closer to being ready for Christmas. I've been thinking though that it would be better to focus on going to Toronto instead. I am scheduled to return from that on the night of the 23rd, but have an entire visit before that, which I haven't been thinking about very much. For example, while Dan and I have briefly discussed the idea of taking the subway to downtown Toronto and walking back to the apartment, we haven't talked about anything else. I have quite a few ideas of things to do in my mind, but the problem with them is that I think of doing them by myself. As long as I know where it is, I could go to Walmart after midnight easily, but am really not going to Toronto again just to do things on my own. For now though, all I want to do is go downstairs and play Metroid Corruption. I left off just after acquiring the Ice Missiles last night, and can think of a couple different paths that I need those to get through. Hopefully there's something of interest down one of them~
