Celeste – A Day in the Life of a SupaAgent

theflash

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, our SupaAgent’s are just plain Supa-beings! It takes a special kind of someone to be an Agent here at Supahands and to help you get an idea of how amazing they are, we asked SupaAgent Celeste what a “normal” day is like for her.

Here’s what she had to say:

My typical day is what many would consider a far cry from typical. I don’t wake up at the crack of dawn as some days I only get to bed at the sight of day’s first light. My 9-to-5 is more like a 10am-to-4am. Insomniac! With many little projects under my sleeves and wearing various colourful hats, as a full-time part-timer, almost every day is a different “adventure”. Nothing as exciting as climbing Mount Everest or diving the Great Barrier Reef, I must admit, but exciting nonetheless. I call them my Little Wins Every Day. But while tackling these many little (some not so little) daily tasks, there are sometimes time gaps in the day, when I’m either waiting for someone to respond to an email, finish their part of a project, or for the oven to say ‘ding’ – yes, I’m also a baker. So what do you do? You surf the WorldWideWeb! And that’s how I discovered SupaHands and after a number of completed tasks, I became a SupaAgent!

Being a SupaAgent has been no less interesting for me compared with my other works, as every Hand requested has been so unique. Some a bit out of this world, I must admit. So whenever there’s 20 mins or so to spare, I figured why not learn something new, which is what I’ve discovered with every assigned task. Now I know what happens to stuff you chuck at recycling centres, what to do if I had 5 days in Kyoto, which elementary school to send my kids to if I ever moved to Boston or if I ever have kids, or which company to contact if I decide to get married in Singapore! This one probably should come before the kids and move to Boston 😉 So for someone who’s quite incapable of sitting idly, being a SupaAgent during my spare -however limited- time has been great. You just never know what you’re going to learn next and if you’re able to help someone at the same time – hey, I call it a bonus. Plus there’s the extra couple of bucks that sure doesn’t hurt. Cat’s gotta eat!

Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be busier than ever when I decided to scale down from the corporate ladder climb 6 years ago. And while I go through most days with a measly 5 hours of snooze time, I realise I’m lying here typing this out at 2am with a grin on my face 🙂

And that to me is what’s important especially in these times where there isn’t as much to be smiling about.

Little Wins Every Day.

Think this sounds like a day in your life too? Maybe it’s time to join our team of SupaAgents, here.
