So, I found a temp job (yeah!) that I started Saturday. It's data entry, but it pays well and it's only supposed to last a month, then I'll probably have more substituting jobs. There's a catch too, I get to work 11 pm to 7 am. That's right, I've be relegated to the realm of the graveyard shift (or the third shift, which is what they call it). First of all, can I just say that I don't mind working the graveyard, I get to stay up late, sleep the whole day away and there is shift differential, because I"m working overnight, but there are some small things that might make it less than ideal. Let's start with who else works the graveyard. I'm not saying that most people who work graveyards are socially inept weirdos who like to overshare personal information and smell funny, but I'm not not saying that either. Also, my lunch break is at 3am, my stomach doesn't care for food then, were it three in the afternoon maybe, but not in the am, so I wake up early and am hungry, but am unable to eat when it's time. Finally, my calender is so thrown off, I'm never sure what day it is, my daytime to you is the nighttime and that's just weird. Anyway, it's only for a month, my Mom always says you can do anything for a month. Heavens knows I need the cash, and the work is pretty easy. So, I've invested in some good headphones, I've prepared a look of stupidity (so no one thinks to ask questions of me) and I've slept all day (it's fantastical, to a point). Overnights it is.
