Soooo Tired

I've worked 52 hours this week. To me that doesn't sound like a loooong time, but I work two jobs where you're standing up and walking about all day. I'm knackered! I'm especially tired at the end of this weekend where both restaurants have been very busy and I had an hour gap between my shifts each day! I should be grateful for the hours really as next week I'm only down to do ~38 hours (the hours at the Chinese vary by how busy it is), which nets me about £100 less than this week!

But yes, life has been put rather on hold this week. I have quite a long To Do list building up now!! PhD positions have begun to be advertised, so I need to be researching and applying for them! Also, I have only finished one Christmas present so far and I still don't know what I'm doing for several people! I need to get creating next week!

Can't even keep my eyes open anymore. Don't think that putting the clocks back last night helped – it feels an hour later than it is! G'night!

When I worked a lot back to back shifts - any frugality went out the window as I was exhausted.

Quick takeout and entertainment kept me sane. So I worked hard just to waste the $$$$. Don't fall in the same trap!

Thanks for the advice! I barely have time to come home and get changed before heading out again on days when I work at both places though! Then sleeeeep!

I'm hoping you get food at both your jobs. Your work ethos sounds a bit like mine, work all the hours you can to earn your own living. Long hours physically and mentally drained me at times, 60 hours a week lorry driving was normal. Stick with it, you will be rewarded. I hope you find the job you are looking for.

Have a rest and then look up those PHD positions. Your future is so important. And make time for fun!

That's a good point - I do get free food at both jobs. I'm getting a little sick of takeaways every day, but I'm eating healthy foods at other meal times and I suppose it's not forever! I'm a vegetarian so it could always be worse than bean burgers and vegetable chow mein!
