There is too much going on in my life at this moment, I need a pause button or that superhero power where I can go really really fast and everything else including time itself slows down around me thus allowing me to accomplish all the shit that I need to do in the small time frame that I have available.
Today I went through Orientation for the Casino job and Charlie Brown's teacher invaded my head. There were lots of words, lots of slides, a few "movies" and some really bad on screen role playing. It was typical orientation stuff and it was just as boring as pretty much every other one that I have ever gone through before.
So, tomorrow starts the real test. Not only in terms of how will I perform in actual real life circumstances but also in the how I am going to deal with working two jobs and little sleep.
6-3 Retail - 7-3 Casino, 6-3 Retail 7-3 Casino and then sleep my f'n head off on Saturday.
My plan of attack is to get a full 8 hours of sleep tonight. I should be able to make it home by 3:30 after the retail job and get 2 - 2.5 hours sleep before waking up to head into the Casino. Take another 2 hour nap and head into Retail and see what the hell I can do to get out early to try and get a 3-4 hour nap before heading back to the Casino.
I know there is going to be multiple 5-hour energy drinks involved and there is a chance I will become zombified. However, the money is going to be great and I know that I'm not too far away from being able to actually do both on a part time basis instead of killing myself with too many hours.
Tomorrow I'm going to be talking to the person in charge of making schedules to see if he/she can help me out in that regard. Try not to have back to back shifts during the week so that after a double (er, triple?) I can find time to catch up on sleep before doing it again. At this moment I have a very real fear that taking on this job right now might be stretching myself too thin and it will backfire - but only time can tell that. At the very least I don't think they would have a problem honoring a request to schedule me less often or let me give a shift away to someone who needs it more.
This weekend I need to find time to start some paperwork for the whole car situation as it appears as though I'm going to have to at least threaten to take someone to court to get some money out of them.
Lastly, I received what I think (hope) is the final set of paperwork that has to be filled out to get the house situation taken care of. I'll be looking over it all this weekend to see what all I need to do/sign/gather/provide.
Where is that damned slow motion button!
