So, this is the first installment of the “Justin takes over the Blog: Friday Edition”. This is essentially where I post stuff without regard to whether or not people care about what I say. So be prepared for mindless rants about video games, statistics, March Madness, and Pizza….
But seriously though, I hope you enjoy it.
Today, I’ll be going over a typical day for me, complete with labeled time tables and sarcasm.
5:30 – Alarm goes off. I hit snooze. A lot.
6:20 – I wake up finally. Eat some sort of breakfast, check my email, read my morning webcomics and prepare for work.
6:50 – Leave for work. Pray the car isn’t overheated/out of gas/dead. Listen to sports radio. Get way too over-hyped on the BYU/Jazz game coming up. During commercials, listen to the rock stations.
7:00 – Arrive at work. Chill in the car while awesome song finishes. Try to remember to turn down volume so music doesn’t blast at me when I get back in my car.
Now here comes my work rant. First and foremost, I love my job, just some days are better than others. I work in data automation, with an emphasis in ETL. ETL stands for Extract Transform and Load. Basically, using programming and math magic, I take data in one format and turn it into another format that our system uses. (This is where I put some random things in here to see if my lovely wife is actually reading my post or not. Old spice odor blocking body wash.) I usually have lunch with my coworkers where our discussions range from the dangers of including too many global variables in your code to who would win in a fight: Iron Man or Batman? (It’s Batman) I could go on and on about what I do, but I don’t want to lose my wife any followers.
3:00 – Leave work. Get blasted by the volume because I didn’t turn it down. Pray my car works.
3:15 – Pick up my son from the babysitter’s. Rhys doesn’t like sports radio, so I always have to change the station to Top 40, because he likes to sing along.
3:30 – Come home, feed the boy/put him down for a nap/chase him around the room until Mama comes home.
4:00 – Mama comes home.
Now, once home, my time is usually spent playing with my son, reading sports articles, and getting way too excited about upcoming games, potentially make dinner.
6:30 – Bath time for Rhys, Put the boy down to bed.
Now, the evenings are usually spent playing games with my wife, making a dessert, watching our 4 staple TV shows (Friends, HIMYM, Family Feud, and Big Bang Theory), and talking about our day.
10:30 – Bedtime
That’s a typical day for me. Add in various chores, random trips to Walmart, some Fire Emblem, and that life for me in a nutshell.
Because it is March, there are special things I do during the month.
1.) I get Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s.
2.) Pi Day. There is always Pie on Pi day. As a math person I consider March 14th a holiday. I also celebrate double pi day. (3.14 X 2 = 6.28 ie June 28th). On double pi day, you get….yup….2 pies.
3.) The Ides of March. Caesar is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays and I make it a point to go around and tell people to “Beware” of things on that day.
4.) Badger Day. Its March 16th. I watch the Badger Badger Youtube video numerous times that day. I invented this holiday in 9th grade. For those who have never seen the Badger Badger YouTube video, I invite you to watch it this upcoming March 16th,
Boring? Not at all. People sometimes ask me what I would do if I ruled the world. I tell them I already do, and this is exactly how I like it.
Well….there could always be more dragon-fighting pirates, pizza, and root beer….
