    Birds poop everywhere. They have an infinite capacity for poop.

    I always like when it gets so busy that it's just a crazy event. I think everything runs so much smoother and becomes more fun with all the chaos because of the general consensus of "fuck it, make it work." Some of my favorite days are my busiest.

    Yeah, that was a crazy event. Holy shit. We're practically carrying each other from point A to point B now.

    Yeah, but now you have the memory of making it through it with everyone there. Sounds like a good time for a work meeting at the bar. We always do that on the company dime too.

    Yeah, I used do to that... now I am the company dime, which kind of sucks.

    As far as I can tell, the team inclusion and loyalty it brings is worth every penny.

    And he did, three or four kegs. Had one with us, then took his leave and let us get shitty.

    I'm up and working the Graveyard shift...Yippee...That's my sarcasm. At least it is my 'Friday' and I'm trying to not procrastinate with the words but not succeeding at all.

    I kind of miss the calm of night crew sometimes.

    I will admit that is the plus about night shift, I love my people I work with and there is so much less BS at night to deal with to.

    Yep, it's definitely worth it if your a night owl, and if the job is okay. Can sneak some study in too sometimes.

    Most definitely, that is when I do most of my writing and plotting. I have way less interruptions and distractions.

    Sadly last night I did not get any words down but that is okay, it was my end of week. I hope your night went good.

    It happens. I've been building up the portfolio the last few days so no writing for me either. Lots of beta reading and editing though.

    I think I figured out a way to remember new words quicker. I've tested it out for a few days and it seems to work. It is quite the unusual method. Basically, I use my right index finger to touch my index knuckle of my left hand, and with my eyes closed, I sub-vocalize the word while visualizing it in my minds eyes. But what I do further is say the simplest synonym of the word, while touching the next knuckle on my left hand, so that my mind connects the original word with its simplest synonym.

    So the sequence would go: Look at word ---> Close eyes ----> Touch left index knuckle with right index finger ---> say word while visualizing it ----> Open eyes ---> repeat for its simplest synonym but on the second knuckle.

    How autistic is that? No, but seriously. Every word that I tested, I remember on sight and can connect it to its synonym with little thought. I'm sure to some, this would be a weird thing to be happy about but I cannot tell you how much I've struggled with memory after my health issues a few years ago. For this to work so well is like a miracle. So yeah, I've been in a pretty good mood. All I need now is a girl who isn't terrified by my alien presence, and I will be good.

    Night shift on a beach sounds relaxing unless it's a bar or security.
