A beer never sounds better than right now :)

After a long days work, it’s great to have a beer, read some e-mails and blog before you head to bed. Work’s been hectic right now. We’re busting major ass, but we’re not getting to far along. Seems like no matter how we work, there’s always something left to do. I think what makes work fun, is that I treat it like a game. Everything I do is one more step closer to getting that achievement of getting everything done. I can normally get my day’s tasks done, but there’s so much back work that needs done and then the people that leave things for you to do that you’re behind even before you start. It’s getting better though. We’re getting a strong Second Shift team now. I hear the new girl is working out really well. I hope when they get their new supervisor over second, one that’ll do better than the last one though. Seems like she just wanted to blame everyone else for her fallbacks. Then causing problems before she leaves. Very Unprofessional. No one gets to pick their boss, but they do have to work with them and get along with them.

I enjoy working hard. There’s nothing more fulfilling then getting home from a hard days work and saying, “I kicked some ass today. I’m proud of that.”


Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

This is true on so many levels! Why is it that when you first know someone, it’s the best thing in the world? What are people afraid of? Why not show your true colors all the time. Embrace who you are, for no one can take this away from you!

Not that this has happened to me in the remote past, it’s just one of my random thoughts of the day.

On a completely unrelated note, I’m at 215 now. Weight is coming off and staying off! I’m super psyched!


Sigh… What a drag…

Sometimes I wonder why I bother going into work at all… I really wonder this sometimes. I feel like I go in, bust my ass, and we’re father behind than we were when I came in. I sometimes wonder why I went to third. Second shift IMS was so much easier. Get in, unload a truck, sorts freight, pull freight, pick, done. You really only do something that’s remotely difficult for maybe 3 hours a day. I’m not saying that I don’t mind the workload from third shift, I love that part of the job. I love being challenged. Life would be boring if it were easy. I’m not sure where these problems are coming from, but I can go to a random bin in the back and find problems in it. For instance, I found a box in one bin that didn’t have any labels on it… What the hell people… There was another box with a count of 6 on it with only 1 item in the box. One HUGE box with one tiny item in it. Come on people, let’s use some common sense here. Wait, common sense would imply that… wait, I’m just going to plead the fifth and shut up now…

Point is, communication, consistency, and honesty are the keys that lead to success… When people take shortcuts, someone else picks up the slack, but it makes the whole system fail…


A note about life.

Life’s a journey, not a guided tour. That’s certain. It’s odd looking about on the things you’ve done in the past and thinking about what’s to come in the future. Life is always moving, flowing from all around us.
