So I have just spent the past 5 days working extra hours and I am feeling pretty tired and spent. Other than my usual 9 hours from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm I have been putting in a couple of hours daily and even 3 on Wednesday and today. Waking up at 6 am is hard for someone who has been used to late evening or night shifts for the past 4 years.
So not only do I feel tired and a bit sleepy throughout the day, I am then making it worse by extending just to ensure that I am seen as getting some things done. And for some reason sleeping has been tough as it is hot and humid and also the time difference and I end up waking up a couple of times in the middle of the night. This makes me even more tired. Yet when I work late evening or night shifts I end up sleeping more soundly so even 6 hours gets me a lot of rest.
Now the work week is done and even if I do have to work in the morning shift next week, I will not be stretching so much for extra hours. I just wanna relax at home and chill. Have some good food and drink and put my feet up and watch a couple of movies. And catch up on some sleep.
