A couple weeks ago, I started a new job. Got my uniform, worked at one post for about a week, then asked for more hours so I could have a reasonable amount of spending money. Wound up taking night shifts. So for the last few days, I’ve either been working nights, or playing WoW until 5 in the morning to maintain a sleep schedule that allows me to stay awake at work. Right now my body has about adapted to the new routine, meaning I generally don’t feel like going to bed until 8 in the morning.
And that adaption is currently screwing me over because it’s 3 in the morning, I have work in 5 hours (as they asked me to work a day shift today), and I. Can’t. Sleep.
Did I mention these shifts are twelve hours long? I’ve been up since 2 this afternoon (when they called me to work today, and thus woke me up) and I have no idea how I’m going to make it until 8 tonight without getting at least a little shut-eye. But I just can’t.
Anyone care to sing me a lullabye?
