Right now the ship isn't completely full so we're only cooking for about 200 people, but within two weeks the rest of the nurses, staff, and day-workers will fill the ship to about 500. Not to mention the patients who will start coming in February. It actually feels really dead right now, especially because everyone is working.
Working in the galley is nice, because I don't HAVE to be on time for the meals and if I get hungry I can always go make myself something. We work 2 days on, then 2 days off, and working every other weekend. So I worked this weekend and now I only work 2 other days this week. Sweetness! Now I can stay up late/early with my roommate who works nights in reception and sleep in! It has been freezing here lately. And its not just the AC (it makes my room a fridge!) its been windy and about 30 degrees C. I wore a sweatshirt inside and outside, just because its only warm....not boiling... And yes, there is a difference.
