Can't wait for the holidays to be over...I hate this time of the year.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
Yeah it's weird being away from my family this year for Christmas for the first time in my life. I'm not sorry that my fiancee and I moved down here to Kitchener where her family is by any means...just I miss the home cooking. My grandmother's mashed potatoes and homemade stuffing is beyond ****ing delicious.
Well I'm off to try to get four hours of sleep before I fly back to Pittsburgh, where I'll instantly be whisked off to a Christmas Eve party with a bunch of people I don't know. In other words I won't be around much, if at all, tomorrow.
Where I work, we get tripple time if you work holidays, so seniority is king. I wind up with several days off during the holidays....which is fine by me.
My situation is opposite. The guys on the lower rungs get screwed. My office closed at noon today, and I hate to stay and do ***** work until 5. I came in on Thanksgiving, Memorial day, and Columbus day.
