I had to work a regular shift today since my company did not honour the Labor Day holiday: in the USA you have a choice to either work, work or you work any other options will lead to your downfall. Well I decided I don’t want to fall because the rise from a fall in this economy would be something of a hell itself: I'm not sure if the labour laws don't apply to corporations like the one I work for, but they did manage to get away with me working a full shift today. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining I could always use the extra money (not with planning to go climb Machu Picchu, Singapore, New York, Hawaii and all). Well the usual 4:00 am wake up in the morning and my alarm was dancing across the floor waiting for me to get up and turn it off (the sound is so irritating that one does not want to hear it for more than a few seconds).
I managed a cup of coffee and made it on time to work with an extra five minutes to chat with a colleague. It must have been a good day because it was 1:00 pm before I knew it and I was on my way home. Back at my apartment I found I had new neighbors moving in with large appliances that rocked the stairs as if to make their presence felt. It is cooler today following the storm we had last night, I do not have to run my AC (always a pleasure when I do not have to run up my electric bill, besides I hate the AC because it dries up my nose and eyes).
No sooner had I locked my front door, did Matt call to find out if I wanted to spend the afternoon with him - watching movies perhaps? Well I did go over to Matt's and we watched a movie (don't ask I can't for the life of me remember the tilte of the movies, what I remember is that it had one of my favourite actors Forest Whitaker and Keanu Reeves in it), I also suggested we go watch the sunset atop Mt. Lemmon. 'Great idea' Matt thought, we had missed the sunset yesterday because he called me a little too late and we spent time in the rain chasing after the sunset on Speedway Boulevard. We agreed to leave at 5:00 pm in order to catch the perfect sunset at a little after 6:00 pm: the drive up Mt. Lemmon is always refreshing and inspiring, something about being on higher grounds I suppose?
