To the Light!

With the departure of Steve from MWO, our shift was left with a void during the daytime. Who would fill that gaping chasm? Well, as it turns out, it would be me.

After a little over 4 years of working the night shift, I have done an about-face, switching to working the day shift, in order to (at least partially) fill the gap that Steve left behind. It certainly is a whole different ball game during the day–more interaction with other human beings, sunshine, grey fog instead of black fog, and the phone sure does ring a lot more!

Although I did work days for the few short months I was an intern way back in the fall of 2008, those days are but a distant memory, and my responsibilities are a little more extensive now, as I additionally attempt to step into the role of shift leader. It is a vast new challenge, and one I am very much looking forward to tackling!

I will very much miss the rhythm and repose of the night shift, but I am looking forward to what the day shift has in store for me! And with a little tweak of the schedule, I am able to keep the part of my nights that I valued the most–forecasting!
