Changing Work Shifts Again

Urgh, I hate this but it has to be done. I will be changing my work shift again and from Monday I will be working from 8:30 pm to 5:30 am. I don’t know how this will affect my sleep patterns and my health (hope it doesn’t) even though it’s just a two hour difference from my current shift. But I need some darkness to properly fall asleep and that is what worries me.

So if my shift finishes at 5:30 am I will reach home by around 6:15 am or so. If I go to sleep right away I am hoping that I will be able to get 5 to 6 hours of decent sleep. I hope so. Because otherwise I just know that I will end up all tired and miserable. Maybe 3 to 4 hours in the morning and a nap after lunch might do the trick. But I just can’t control my sleep like that. I hate working night shifts and the 4:30 pm – 1:30 am or 6:30 pm to 3:30 am shift were fine for me.

Anyways this is for the next 2 weeks after which I can switch back to either of the two shifts I am used to. Or even a 3:30 pm to 12:30 am shift. Which is fine. I am not looking forward to the next two weeks. Let’s see and hope for the best.
