Longer hours

I'm putting in later (and longer) hours at work lately. I think it's working out nicely. I feel like I'm more a part of the collective than before, and I'm having a lot more fun at work. Folks are much more casual after dinner. I've had several non-work conversations in the evenings and it's been a great way to learn more about my co-workers. So it's all been good. I also find that I'm more productive "after hours," as the office is usually much more quite, although one of the cleaning ladies is running an industrial strength vacuum down the hallway. Good thing my headphones are turned way up.

But, my plan is to cut out of here in not too long. I have about an hour of MP3s left unheard in my playlist, so I'll leave not (too much) later than when they're through. I'll randomize the list and start again tomorrow. It's good to have nearly 20 hours of tunes to listen to.

The only drawback to longer hours is that I haven't done housework lately. I'm running short on clothes and need to find time for a load of laundry. Of course, the plus to having later hours is that I can do these things at 9am in the morning and still get to work "on time" (ie, just after noon).

Anyway, I think this is working out okay so far. I'll report more in a few more weeks or so. 8)
