Ugh, Graveyard Shifts!

Well hello, how are you? Me, I am so tired and I don’t even know what day it is. I just went to the loo and for a second I wasn’t sure which day’s shift I was about to work. So after working 9:30 am to 6:30 pm on Monday and then 6:30 pm to 3:30 am on Tuesday, I changed shifts again. However Wednesday technically I only worked 2.5 hours as I was in the office at 11pm and my Thursday shift started at 1:30 am. My current training batch starts working at 1:30 am till 10:30 am hence this mess of a shift.

I am so confused – am I coming or going? LOL, I was so tired at 3:30 am that I needed a coffee badly. But after that till about 9 am I was ok but then I was almost nodding off. I left the office at 10 am, a half hour early as another training batch needs the room at that time. No problem, I just got my bag and bottle and booked an Uber and got in. I told the driver the location of my home and nodded off in spurts of fighting to stay awake. Before I knew it I was almost home. As soon as I came in, I undressed and got in between the sheets which have never looked more inviting or comfortable till date.

But then I found it hard to fall asleep ofcourse. The noises outside and the lighting streaming in from the gaps in the curtains did not help either but I managed a 5.5 hour sleep. I woke up a little after 4pm and not having had lunch (I had breakfast at the office cafeteria) I got coffee and some snacks. I have had another coffee but I am still tired as hell. Another two more days or rather nights of this shift.
