The 8-5 Employee

Graphics for Work

Are you the regular employee who has an 8am-5pm schedule? Chances are you’re always looking for the much awaited bell in the bundy informing everyone that it’s 5:00 pm already. I’ve worked for 19 years in 5 companies but it’s not always been an 8-5 work schedule for me as I had jobs with shifting schedule.

I experienced a three shifting work schedule and rounded almost all of the shifts including 6am-2pm, 2-10pm and 10pm-6am when I was in my first job in semi-conductor/electronics Company. I love the night schedule as it seems faster than any shift we have. In the government where I worked in an 8-5 schedule the employees really get out at exactly 5 pm unlike when I transferred in private companies where schedule is more flexible depending on your kind of work. I used to go home past 5pm or later if my boss required me to finish our bidding proposals.

I hate rushing up to go out of the office at exactly 5pm because I don’t want to feel banded by time constraints. I had a very difficult multi-tasking job and before I go home I want to relax a bit, have coffee and tidy all my things and my seatmate’s table before I go out of the office. I don’t want to work the next morning with plenty of due tasks so I end the day with my work completed or updated. When I already have kids I rushed going home but I never beat the 5pm clock. I chose the 9-6 schedule so I have ample time in the morning to arrange my kids’ things in going to school and prepare their food for the whole day.

Now it’s easier to work at home because you have the ability to manage your time, more flexible and perfect for Moms like me. How about you? Do you manage your work time well?


My 3 Project Plans

I’ve observed that my kitchen is quite old and needs some renovation. Since it’s more than 5 kilometers long I find it out of the current kitchen fashion designs. I want a somewhat square-shaped kitchen and I’m thinking of using a different kind of tile like metal tile to make my kitchen look more polished and clean. Now as I already have project 3 for our master bedroom renovation and project no. 4 as our family room construction in line right now I’m going to tag my kitchen renovation as my project no. 5. Guess I’ll be needing lots of finances for these projects so I have to work, work and work.


Feeling Lighter with Walking Exercise

I feel great these past few weeks as I’m getting back to my old walking exercises. When DD started her summer refresher course I didn’t hire their school service but instead assigned myself in fetching her every morning. DH offered to drop her in going to school so in the second week I was there for DD to fetch her. Since I haven’t buy or follow any weight loss formula other than my semi-cleansing meal plan I started my walking exercise. It was the perfect time for me as I can walk from the corner of the street to the school and back again.

It’s a morning class so when we go home the sun is only starting to send its heat. Now when I count the kilometers I walk every morning I was glad to note that I walk around 2 kilometers in the morning and another 1 kilometer in the late afternoon in our community grounds. I know its doing me good not only to look slimmer but to feel fit also. I feel lighter now than I was 2 months ago and it’s a great feeling.
