Split shifts & Sleep

I am working 1pm-5pm and then again at 10pm-2am. So I have a guaranteed 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week schedule now. But it’s a crazy schedule to get used to. I definitely would not want this schedule in the “real world”.

I will usually go to bed around 3am, and wake up between 8-9am. I will have coffee and maybe putter around my dorm room until I go to lunch about noon. When I finish the first half of my work shift at 5pm, I will go have dinner. I must say that the lunch & dinners are better here then they were at Death Valley.

After dinner I am ready for a nap. I am now setting 5 alarms to make sure I get back up to work at 10pm. My sleep schedule got messed up once last week and I ended up being 45 minutes late for my 10-2 shift. I got written up for that and don’t  want that to happen again.

Now this weekend,  I spent time with friends so my sleep schedule is outta whack again. Which is why I am typing this post before 4am. I really should try to go back to sleep. It seems like for 5 days a week all I do is work & sleep now. EDIT: I got up to make coffee about 9:15am, so hopefully I am back to my normal schedule. But I think from now on I will only be able to go sight-seeing on 1 of my weekend days instead of both days off.

Took that picture on Sunday, when I went riding around with friends. It was a nice day and I enjoyed hanging out with them, but it wore me out.
