I (Almost) got a day off

Well, Saturday and Sunday were exhausting. It was probably the most tired – physically and mentally that I’ve been in a while. I worked alongside my office team to run a shaved ice booth for the city festival. (We were too busy to take any pics, sorry!) I was at the front of service commanding customers with ‘Irasshaimase’ (Welcome) and other phrases. Once the customer paid, I was the person for order pick-ups as well. At one point I kept track of how many customers we had in one minute and it was three. So, over the eight+ hours a day we worked…yeah, you can imagine how tiresome it was.

Today was our first day back at the office and it was obvious that morale was low. One of my friends lost her voice. Nonetheless, we got work done. Towards the end of the day I finished early and they said I could go home. My friend/supervisor randomly asked the supervisor if I could have the day off tomorrow. Embarrassed, I listened in while the supervisor said, “No.” Bummer. The rest of the day I had previously planned Japanese study, web design work, and a bike ride. When it came down to it, all I had energy for was a bike ride. Trying to relax now with some light work. I don’t want to get too behind but I know I am too tired to give 110% creatively right now.
