Your daily DAY by the hours, ( or tell us about your longest day the last weeks)

My Normal Day I get up at 5 or 6 am and then go to work until 2 or 3. I try to find out where people are skating while on my breaks, and then when I get off I try to meet up with everyone. Then usually grab dinner with the peeps or make something at home. If I have the next day off I’ll try and go grab a drink or see what my people are up to, I tend to go to sleep pretty early most of the week though.

How are you doing at the moment ?
