I've lost all concept of time. Nothing exists except now. I feel like I'm being professionally indoctrinated with no sleep and positive corporate messaging. Loud music, blinking bright lights. A co-worker who is also USMC said it felt like boot camp with crappy food, no sleep, and no personal time. He's not wrong.
We had an off-site dinner last night, which normally I would say was crappy sports bar food, but I raved about the food so much, that I went for thirds at the BBQ buffet. That's how badly they've been depriving me here.
Today I've started drinking the kool-aid, so their plan is working. I'm all gung-ho, on board, with synergy for everyone. Just kidding, I'm bored silly and writing this in one of my sessions.
It hasn't been all bad. My co-workers and I got into a fun detailed analysis of powdered eggs. We've bonded over the shared experience of days (feels like weeks) of shitty food. It's been really nice laughing in person with people I typically only interact with telephonically. I also made some new friends to laugh with from all over. I probably also scared some away with my off-color humor. Oops. If we can't laugh at our social issues, then we're still too sensitive to start working on them.
