This morning started off in a most unusual way. I awoke at 4:00 AM as usual but realized I had an appointment at 11:30 AM that must have gotten buried under a bunch of other items. I’m currently covering two other territories at work and didn’t see this one. Therefore, I had to forgo the gym and prepare a presentation. The only problem was that I couldn’t pull certain reporting since the account isn’t in my territory which gave me some anxiety. I put together as much as I could for the presentation and then went back to sleep since I wouldn’t be able to have someone else pull the reports until 8:00 AM.
While sleeping I had the weirdest dream that was tied to the presentation. I was on vacation in Japan but had been called by Nova to cover for an employee that couldn’t make it. I suddenly found myself in a Nova office but realized I wasn’t wearing a suit which is the required uniform. I didn’t let it bother me too much since I was just covering for another and told the bosses they would just have to understand. The English lesson was a bit bumpy but otherwise was going fine. Just then, an airplane crashed in the street right outside the office. I ran to help but realized the pilot was dead. Needless to say it was a pretty intense dream.
I then woke up and finally got a hold of someone who could pull the reporting. I put them into the presentation and headed out the door. I’ve just returned and it went very well.
I’m just glad it is Friday and the new employees are starting on Monday. It will be nice to not be so busy after three months of a workload that was much larger than normal.
