Good
I just started my third week on second shift.  That's 3-11pm, Monday through Friday.  Second shift seems to work really well for me so far...It's going to make visits interesting for a while, though.
FYI, I'm a manager trainee at a Nestle Purina plant and part of my training program involves a tour of back shift supervising (you know, to develop leadership skills and gain a greater understanding of what I'll be potentially managing someday).
I actually entered the supervising stage about two months early in one of the most intense roles in the plant right now - Material Handling Supervisor/Production Data Coordinator/Receiving.  It's definitely a challenge and I'm pretty excited about that.  Seriously, I'm absolutely, positively, thrilled to be so busy and learning so much and making positive contributions to the company.  The world is at my feet.

I've been working a whole lot, which I really like right now (that "I'm accomplishing something" thrill mixed with a dash of beaucoup positive feedback).  However, I have an increasing desire for adventure in my off hours.  Girlfriend wants to do something amazing and live it up...as soon as I have weekend free. 
Wanna go adventuring?

I need a good book to read. Something lighter than the holocaust memoirs I'll be sandwiching it between, yet not brain rotting. Nothing that might feature a flowing-haired Fabio on the cover.

"Man is capable of changing the world for the better if possible, and of changing himself for the better if necessary."

I found another quote you might like. "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." Tolstoy

Glory Season

I recommend "Glory Season", by David Brin. Don't let the title mislead you; Glories are an atmospheric phenomenon that occurs at a specific time of year on the planet where the story is set. The story involves a very interesting, engineered variation on our species. Brin does a very good job of building a plausible culture from this variation.
