I mentioned last Monday that I was invited to take a test for a new job.  I’m happy to report that I passed!  They sent me some forms to fill out and some videos to watch to train me for the job.

When I checked my email on Wednesday morning, I was informed that I was good to go and could start working.  The work in this company is self assigned, so you could work as much or as little as you want.  However, I found out that they usually send out the files to be worked on at around 6 am, my time.  I’m still asleep at that time, then I have to bring my daughter to school, then take my morning walk.  I’m usually home by 8 am, then I have to eat breakfast and do the chores.  So, by the time I read the email, it was almost 10 am and there was no more work to be done.

So, I have a dilemma, should I work after bringing Yumi to school, or should I still walk and if there’s no more work, then sorry.  I could take the files before I bring Yumi to school, then take a walk but I might not finish the work within the deadline.  I certainly don’t want to miss deadlines so early in the game.

As it turns out, they sometimes send files at other times.  Yesterday, they sent it early evening my time.  By that time though, I couldn’t work on it either since I’m doing online English conversation lessons at night.  Today, they sent it around noon.  Finally, I got to work on a decent number of files.  Unfortunately, or fortunately, I forgot to eat lunch because of that.

I have to figure out a way to do this properly.  I have decided that I will continue walking.  I enjoy my time outdoors, and it’s my only exercise.  I should also discipline myself to check for new files only at certain times of the day.  There is no need to check it every five minutes.  Finally, I should realize that this is just extra work, we won’t starve without it so there’s no point in stressing myself.

If you’ll excuse me, I need to check the file before I go to bed. 🙂
