Back to the Dayshift

With the recent (and drastic) changes that our account had, the GY team was scrapped and everybody from the 8:30pm-5:30am shift was transferred to either the 6:00am-3:00pm or 8:00-5:00pm schedule. I was just surpised one Saturday morning when our supervisor sent an SMS relaying this particular info to us, and that starting Sunday, I am to go to work on the 8:00-5:00 shift.

I didn't know how to react at first upon learning about this new development. See, I'm still taking review classes from 8:00 to 12:00 for the stateboard examination that inevitably I'll have to hurdle and pass. The particular schedule would not work out for me and, not only that, I'll probably be late the entire time I'm in this shift.

With explanation provided to my supervisor regarding this concern of mine, she went out of her limb to convince our boss that I take the 1:00pm-10:00pm shift instead. And thankfully, our PD was amenable to this particular request. All I had to do was write a letter explaining why the need for this particular shift schedule, the request of which can be found below.

I would like to take a space on this entry to thank Ru, Erik, and Tim for the help they had extended to me on this matter. The only downside though is I'm the only person left from the team 5:00pm onwards. [Sighs]
