January 15th, 2552 Patiently Waiting
Jr. Wrench Monkey in Training, Kat ‘237’, Reporting
Well, my, we’ve been busy. I have to remind myself that we are not being slow and inefficient, we’re being careful and thorough. I had to remind myself of that again when I was assigned to schlep equipment for another team of senior engineers and go down the same path I’d finished two hours earlier.
I also had to remind myself that as a conscriptee, nobody wanted my opinion on anything and if I wanted to continue to learn my trade, and live in peace— I need to let this go without venting.
‘Venting,’ another word you do not want to say whilst shipboard. Venting is bad, I get it. Not letting people sleep for more than three hours tends to require more— patience.
