Graveyard aka Vampire Shift

So I am back to doing a late night or overnight shift. You also call it a graveyard shift or as I love to call it the vampire shift!

This week I will be doing the 9:30 pm to 6:30 am shift. I also did it for last Thursday & Friday. The last two hours of which I will be the only one from my team and it can get lonely. But I have set it up so that I get some of my work done for 90 of those minutes and that is usually the work that I like to do without much of a bother in between. That works out for me that none of the others will be there at that time.

The last 30 minutes of the shift will be when I take the second 30 minute break of the day. I have not been taking my full 60 minutes break the last week but I guess I can do that this way. That 30 minutes, which will be from 6 am onwards will be when I go to the cafeteria and get my breakfast and coffee. Works out fine.
