Late Evening Shifts

Well back to late evening shifts again. Only it’s probably only for one week. Let’s hope!

For the next one week I will be working from 9:30 pm to 6:30 am or atleast that is what was scheduled. Due to some logistical issues with a new set of employees and getting cabs to get them to the office, they might be able to be scheduled for the 8:30 pm shift and if so I too will do the same shift.

I hate late evening shifts. Coming in after 4am, the problem is I do not sleep well during the day. The sunlight, no matter how tightly I wrap the curtains across, is an issue. Some construction still work going on nearby (I can hear them during some hours of the day). A doorbell and people talking can wake me. I usually end up feeling very tired and drink way too many cups of coffee. Also this shift means that Saturdays is going to be mostly a waste. Cause I will be tired and unable to go out on Saturday.

Atleast I hope this is only for one week. I hope! I don’t mind 6:30 am to 3:30 am shifts and I am used to it. 7:30 pm is harder and 8:30 pm or 9:30 pm is going to be even harder.
