I recently took a job working overnights two days a week. I work Sunday/Monday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. I'm a natural night owl, but I've done this three times now and it's killing me. It takes
two days to recover from it. I come home Monday at about 6:30 a.m. and I eat something then sleep anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. I get up (not of my own volition, my body just decides to do so) and do a few more things then I take an afternoon nap that lasts a couple of hours. After that, I get up and eat dinner, play around on the computer and I'm up until 3 or 4 a.m. or I go to bed around 11 p.m., but either way I'm still tired the next day.
So, I'm quitting this job. It's something I actually like, but I simply cannot take the schedule and I fear if I keep this up for long, my entire life will be lopsided in that days will feel like nights and vice-versa.
In other news, I have been trying to answer my e-mail FOREVER. I have messages sitting there that are two months old now. I just don't ever seem to sit down and do it. I am determined to get it finished by Sunday. I want to clear my inbox so I can at least feel somewhat productive.
