Didn’t think I was going to miss my first post-per-week post, did you? I was starting to think I might. Have not been good at keeping track of what day it is this week. Every day has felt like some day other than the actual day.
Been going well with the early starts, though (haven’t been late yet! and am usually a bit early). Really don’t mind it. I reckon it’s better than finishing late and then not having time to do anything except go home and sleep (although it would be nice to be able to sleep in).
Some people seem more cheery in the morning. For example, train station announcer guy who says stuff like “please take all personal belongings with you when you leave the train, as you may need them later” and “this train terminates here, so please don’t board this train, as it will only end in disappointment”. Totally makes the morning commute just that little bit more interesting (will leave it up to you to decide if that was sarcastic or not).
Speaking of trains, public transport fares have gone up again. Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but it seems like there’s a lot less people on peak hour buses and trains now. I mean, I knew people were going to abandon public transport when they increased the fares, but the emptiness seems pretty significant…
