Damn Tired Man

What a lousy week.

Last Sunday: Book in early for rearlink duty from 1900h to 0700h the next morning. Sleep on couch beside the radio I was supposed to be monitoring.

Monday: Duty signaller for the day.

Tuesday: Understudy COS and allocating radio frequencies resulting in super late dinner.

Wednesday: My FIRST COS duty. Super late dinner again. Sleep in office. Very busy day due to countless inconsiderate people from QM department applying for leave and getting MCs at the last minute.

Thursday: Some idiot from QM department called in to report MC while I was out of the office yesterday night, resulting in 2 extra duties punishment for me for "unsatisfactory performance while doing COS duty". This happens to be my FIRST extra after almost 17 months of NS. My perfect record is broken and I am damn pissed about it. And I also feel like slicing someone's head off with a samurai sword...and then putting the head back so I can slice it off again.

Friday and Saturday: After a hectic week with hardly any rest, we head out for Battalion Exercise, meaning no sleep. The exercise goes on 24hrs a day with only breaks of at most 2-3 hours when we can catch a quick nap while seating on a bench. I don't know which is worse, the lack of sleep or the abundance of mosquitoes.

Sunday (i.e. today): End of Exercise. Book out at 0800h. Finally.

Wait, it's not over yet. There might be an exercise next week and I have three 500-word cover letters to write by the end of the month. If I screw this up, it's gonna be a lousy job for me for another half a decade. Crap. The only good thing that happened in the past week was the posting in of a new signaller, or rather, an old signaller since he just returned from his studies. It was a pleasant suprise to find that the new guy was my platoon mate in the same unit before I disrupted for university.
