A couple of years ago, after I realized that it made zero difference if I stayed at work late or came in early, I started coming in at 9:00am-ish and leaving right at 5:00pm. Don't get the wrong idea - all of my work still gets done. I just don't feel the need to putz around at work until 5:30pm if all of my work can be finished by 5:00pm.
Today, however, I actually have a ton of stuff to do. Apparently not so much that I can't take five minutes to write a blog post, but a ton of stuff none the less. So, I came in at 8:30am to get a jump on things.
You would think that I was a new attraction at a zoo. Literally everyone in my office crowded around to marvel at the fact that I was in the office at 8:30am. Don't worry, guys. I'll be out at 5:00pm on the dot. I don't want to shock everyone too much in one day.
In other news, I have another job interview on Monday. As usual, fingers crossed...
