Woohoo! I like my shift!

Home at last!

This is the first time I've been on a 2 am to 11 am shift, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the traffic conditions going to and from the office.

My typical ride should take around 40 to 50 minutes using my usual route, which was riding along the SLEX. But ever since the PNCC started phase 2 of Skyway, I swore to myself that I won't use that stretch going to the office. So a detour had to be made, which has extended my travel time by 15 to 30 minutes.

So I left home at around 1 am and arrived safely at the office at around 1:40 am, which was impressive. Last night, I did not encounter anything like this:

Once my shift ended, I realized that I needed to gas up, and the cheapest premium gasoline nearby was at the EDSA Shell station. This is not normally my route home since I know that the traffic is bound to be terrible. Nevertheless, I needed the gas so I headed there. Once the gas is filled up, I noticed that traffic from EDSA going to Cubao was somehow at a moderate pace, with no signs of buildup. So I continued along EDSA, only encountering the usual traffic at Crossing and Buendia.

WOW!!! That was fast!

Instead of this:

I get this:

Or something to that effect.

So here I am at home, seemingly happy at the good fortune I had traveling. Maybe it's because school's out and summer vacation has started, but hopefully everything's the same for the rest of the week.

This gives me more time to sleep, IF I'm even able to sleep! haha!
