Becky’s World

A Day in the Life of Becky

Change is Good….so they say.

They say change is good, but who are “they” anyway?
By the end of this week I will have a new job. I will be among the day-walkers and will have to leave my life as a vampire. That’s right, I will be seeing the sun and working days for the first time since I have been here.
I won’t lie, this makes me both excited and sad. It’s always so hard to leave what you know, what you have made efficient, and it’s always hard leaving beloved co-workers. There are quite a lot of benefits of working the night shift; public places aren’t busy, you have everything to yourself (telephone, internet, trailer, etc), and you don’t have to be around EVERYONE….
However, I am excited to see some people that I really haven’t seen for many months. I will get to eat lunch and dinner chow (which are the best and have the most options). And, I will get to spend time seeing the sun…during the coldest months here, so it’s won’t be so unbearable.
All in all, I know it will be just fine. There are so many worse things, and it will give me a change of pace that will hopefully make time go by faster. Can you believe that it’s almost Halloween? We joke that we will trick-or-treat as civilians this season – what ever it takes to get by.
