It’s been boring the past few days. No orders, very few messages, and everything just seemed to stagnate after last weeks rush that never came. Usually, I have at least one rush per week, but with easter and all, I had the chance to do other stuff than work for once. Well - other work stuff is more like it. A change is always nice, but I must admit that I felt the air leaking out of my mood-balloon when Monday came and went with no orders.
Then I woke up this Tuesday to find not one, not two, but three orders in queue + another just waiting for some info before I can get going.
“Damn!” I thought. On the one day that I feel like shit (slept for too long) I get a bunch of 24-hour turnarounds on voice overs. After two cans of Monster, three cups of coffee, way too much water (which means I gotta get out of the booth every five minutes to take a leak, damn it!), I finally got started. A couple of hours later, and I’m done.
Then I wrote a 2000 word article on how to get cheap flights when the pandemic ends (I know, I’m optimistic. I’m usually not!), interviewed a couple of industry experts for that, hit publish, and now it’s time for ice cream. I’ve earned it.
All in all a great day with a bad start. Now the pregnant wifey is asking for dinner – again. This is the third dinner today. God help me.
How was your Tuesday?
