Week 1 of Crunch! ..oh wait.. it's only Friday

Well, the week's gone by fast despite the 55 hours. It's not so bad, we're in a bigger space and going to the bathroom is twice as long, getting a vitamin water is about three times as long. I also get to dodge scooters and mini bicycles that race down the hallway. It's so surreal watching your manager pedal down the hallway on a tiny bike. It's like a bad dream.

Anyway, the workload has been immense but normally I just sit down, shut up and finish things quick so I can spend the rest of the day walking around the office conversing with people.

Oh, strange story. There was a moldy cupcake floating around work. I looked at it, and it wasn't that moldy. I took a bite and it was fine, they were like, tiny little flakes on top that could be brushed off, anyway, I ate it and my coworker said "Oh wow! You ate it? Here's 50 bucks, we were daring someone to eat it!" so that's an added bonus. Feeling bad on spending the money on myself, I bought nerf guns with the money and pocketed the rest.

Work will be fun + 1.

Crunch: Day 1

Well, I know I've stayed at work for over 11 hours some times but this day was different.

Today marked the first day of crunch, where we try to get the game as clean as possible. We moved offices so we had some difficulty with everything. I couldn't start working until it was noon, but regardless I got my tasks done.

Tomorrow I'll have some more fun with it since I won't be frustrated, even though today, during downtime, I made a pillow out of some bubble wrap, which I think is productive.

We moved a block away and the office I'm in has the most free space. Which I intend to flaunt by putting in a kiddie pool and filling it with styrofoam packing peanuts. I hope they'll let me, because I think that's a great idea.

Anyway, I just got home and it's 10. I think I'm gonna go to bed now, there's really nothing else I can say because of my contract, other than Rock Band will change your life.

Crunch Reinstated

Well, this past few weekends I've been attending a Karaoke Club in downtown Boston, doing my best, but I'm trying to relax before MANDATORY CRUNCH. Before I was just sticking around for a few hours because I wasn't needed, but now the 63 hour weeks commence.

After singing my renditions of KISS and Zepp, I think I've officially prepared myself for the long road ahead. 4 Weeks of Crunchtime and 2 Student Loans, hurrah..
