Tuesday, January 3

wasting some time at work

  • 2 hours of sleep
  • No breakfast
  • Painful cough and stuffy head
  • Room full of computers and video game consoles raising temperature to crazy, untolerable levels
It's fucking hot in here and I'm starving. My eyes are starting to hurt and I can't stop coughing. I think I may have given the guy in front of me whatever disease my friend gave me. My feet hurt. Back, too. Did I mention it's hot in here? Christ. If this place can afford to pay me to play games they should be able to splurge on some air conditioning. Yeah, I'm aware it's January. This place is like an oven with all the electronics in here.

Other than that, though, it's all good. My food just got here so I'm gonna go do whatever it is people usually do with their food. I think it might involve some form of eating.

Try to look outside a window for 10 minutes every 2-3 hours.

Cheers!

hmm, dream job nightmare?

Yeah, companies that cut down on necessities to reduce costs suck.
Atleast you are getting paid for what you would be doing at home for fun.

Yes, being paid to sit in a hot room and do nothing is not as fun as I thought it'd be. I've barely gotten in my nerd quotient for the day here. I'll need to break out my complete collection of Babylon 5 to bring myself up to par. Certain British game developpers suck balls.

Update:

It's now the day after the day this post was written. 2:47pm, to be exact. I haven't touched a videogame since yesterday, due to some problems with the installation or whatnot. Yeah, going on six hours now of getting paid to surf the web.

That's 66$ sans taxes.

That's enough money for a brank spanking new videogame, or a pricey night out with friends, or a concert and taxi/food expense. For surfing the web. You're jealous.

Hey, are you sure you haven’t metamorphosed into an underpaid labourer with no benefits or job security in a sweatshop that magically transmogrified from the Orient? Do they lock you in?
