Sleep is for the Eel fishermen

So I finally got some sleep during the last two nights. This is kind of a big deal since I have been sleeping in 3 hours naps twice a day for the last two weeks. This is extremely out of the ordinary for me. When I am at home I can almost literally sleep for 12 hours wake up eat and go back to bed for another 8 hours. It's one of  my many talents. So the fact that I got two nights in a row of normal human sleep is good news.

In other news it looks like things are starting to pick up. I'm not really allowed to go into any detail about what that means. If you read my last post you'd remember that I told you I have been sworn into secrecy. But what I will tell you is that everything is getting a bit better. Yay!

Smaller then you thought?
Both of the pictures in this post are from Google, since I am not allowed to take my own, by searching the term "glass eels." There are tons more if you wanna check them out.

Yesterday I got a "day off". This means I worked a normal work day and got to go into town and eat food and watch a movie, Eel fishing is one of the few jobs where you work on your days off. Boston Pizza has never tasted so good and the movie theater was truly a sight for sore eyes. As of tonight we will be starting our normal fishing grind once again.

This is how we separate the eels from the stuff we don't want.
Throughout working this job I have this one verse that keeps popping into my head and it helps keep me going sometimes. "2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self[a] is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."

There is so much more I could tell you about. But alas, I am not allowed. Hope everyone back home is doing well. Miss you all.

Nolan Out!
