Waking up for nothing

Saturday, woke up at 6.50 am for nothing because my brain was messed up and I showed up for a shoot one day early.

Sunday, woke up at 7.20 am because the Goonfather said he’d drive me to work, meaning I could wake up later because I wouldn’t have to factor in “getting lost time”.

I arrived at 8:50 am, 10 minutes early. But I ended up having to wait 4.5 hours for my turn because they took forever to film the first scene. I was supposed to have finished work by 12:30 pm, but I didn’t get to start work until 1:30 pm.

It’s not normally a big deal because Singapore productions are mostly never on time so I’ve gotten used to long waits. In fact, 4.5 hours is not the longest I’ve had to wait.

But it sucks to wake up early two days in a row for nothing. Waking up early is a big deal because insomnia keeps me awake in the nights.

So I staged a protest today by waking up at 12:08 pm. Yay! Self-indulgent, lazy, sleep-in days for the win.
