Time keeps on slipping

As some of you know i used to work the midnight shift.  i liked it but it was hard to get together with friends.  recently my work has changed things up and has gone to working 4 10 hrs shifts a week.  sound good right 3 days off each week.  the problem is i work 2 days on the day shift and 2 days on the night shift, and thats over the weekend.  i have found it easy to meet up with people during the week for dinner and such and i end up with sat. night off to go out.  the problem comes in with my sleep cycle.  i can stay up all night long no problem but getting up early is killing me.  i have no idea what day it is or what time of day it is most of the time.  at the time i am writing this i know its sat. morning and most people are getting up and doing stuff around the house and relaxing but to me it feels like the middle of the night.  and to top it all off not many people are in chat at the times i can get in anymore.  work has got 10 times more lonely.  oh well speaking of work i guess i should go check up on things.  i only wrote this because if i hadn't i would have been in chat holding a convo. with myself.

  • Sorry your job switched things up.

    I have been working 4 10's since last August. It has been the best thing for me. My wife doesn't work on Friday's either so the family basically has a 3 day weekend together.

    It sucks they can't give you 4 10's all during the same time frame.

  • I work 4 10 hour shifts, from 4:30pm-3:30am....I love only working 4 days, but those four days are completely shot...and the first day off is almost shot as I feel completely lazy that day, but i can do stuff if i really feel like it....but sleep is quite weird, to not screw my sleep rhythm up, I stay up every day until 3:30, but I just get tired at random times during the day and I get high energy bursts followed by crashes...and I end up eating only 2 meals a day...I so wish my job was 10am-9pm (1hour lunch), but that would probably only help my sleep slightly...oh well, its still better than 5 8 hour shifts
