I managed to convince my boss to change my schedule. I asked for two things; that my schedule is as consistent as possible, and that is always the late schedule, so that I can do things in the morning. Surprisingly enough, he agreed, and I have been capitalizing on this time as much as possible. For one thing, I have started going to the gym regularly, something I have dearly missed. But more importantly, this new schedule allows me to occasionally stop and smell the roses about my day. My commute to work (which I do by bike) is about 9km almost all of that on a road called Tianmushan. A large part of that road runs along a national park called the xixi wetlands. I always wanted to stop and take a few pictures of the road I commute on. With my new schedule, I finally can.
