i'm having the hardest time understanding that it's friday night. my confusion started sometime during the afternoon at work when i got this sudden disoriented feeling and had to ask my co-workers what day it is because i seriously had no clue. i was thinking it was tuesday?
so even now, close to midnight, i keep forgetting. i was just trying to figure out what time i would have to go to bed depending on what time i have to get up for work tomorrow... d'oh. no work. is it really weekend? really?? crazy. well, better it being friday than tuesday. it's really weird feeling this detached from, er, time. mehh.
every now and then i entertain myself by finding threads on telemarketing on swedish forums. after 3 years at call centers (:o!!!), i'm way old school. i know i should do something else, but, well, i'm no good at figuring out what.
my current project involves calling up members of a large company to ask for their e-mail adress. no selling involved whatsoever, strictly a customer's service project. we almost entirely reach friendly people. however, the calls are really short in nature (the entire bit usually takes around, or way less than a minute) which means it's really stressful and monotonous, like you have to repeat the same 5 lines every other minute over 8 hours for daaays.. gah. and i'll work this project all of june. sigh.
my phone voice can be really frightening. a few newbies were incredibly impressed at my ability to sound über-professional in any situation. i'm most definitely damaged from work and at any given moment, all this lingo will appear that make me sound like an infomercial. customers often tell me they feel i sound sincere in a way that makes them actually apologize if they decline something.
i just sort of wish my original accent would stop washing itself out more and more. these days i have to actively tell people from my hometown that i used to live there because they just can't spot it in my bland accent. meh. MEH. i dislike my more bland new accent. i may still have certain characteristics from my original accent that are obvious, but many, many words and the rhythm i use to speak has changed, and i don't really like that at all. boo.
uhhh... rambling. tired brain. obviously. i should probably go to bed. so, it's definitely the weekend then, right?? btw, loving christina aguilera's new song. loving the new regina spektor album. really like nelly furtado's acoustic cover of gnarls barkley's "crazy"... that's about it. cin cin!
