|Who Doesn't Like Milk & Cookies?|
1). You don't have to get up really early in the morning.
2). Shift differential.
3). Your fellow night staff. They will always rock!
4). You can drink wine in the morning and get away with it.
5). Sleep deprived silliness with your coworkers.
1). You tend to stay up almost as late in your off time.
2). You feel like you miss out on daytime activities with your friends who work 'normal hours'.
3). You don't feel as productive in your off time because you're trying to be a day person.
4). Scheduling appointments. Always late in the afternoon.
5). It can be lonely at times, due to being up late anyway in your off time.
Regardless, I really don't mind working nights. At least it gives me time to prepare for work before I clock in and jump in the mix of the unit. What really helps is having the extra time before work to run an errand or two to knock out other necessary adult stuff so I won't have too much to do in my off time. And when winter weather hits our area, I feel like I have more time to prepare and drive into work in better daylight vs driving on untreated roads in the dark before the sun arrives.
And in this late nite owl status that I have adopted, I have discovered some really cool movies, concerts and a few documentaries on the 'boob tube' now that I have cable. I refuse to watch all the popular series stuff like a lot of my peers follow, simply because I'm in the middle of the series running and I don't like to 'binge watch'. So I just that stuff alone.
I have also discovered mounds of delicious recipes that I have "pinned to my board" to test out in the coming months. And yes, I have discovered the Pinterest. Geeze....that's a whole other world. At least I have kept it simple. Mostly recipes as I like to cook. It's an endless battle.
I have also seen quite a few shooting stars and have heard mystery sounds from some kind of creature late at night while I'm sitting on my deck. Good stuff. I hope to experience more of that. Especially the shooting stars bit. I have quite a few wishes to make.
And so...that is it folks. At least for now. I had intended to write about something completely different, but as I began to hammer out on my keys, this came out of my head. Guess that's a good thing. Until next time....elizinashe
