OMG I have no idea what day it is I've been working nonstop for 2 weeks now and the overtime pay is awesome don't get me wrong but I have no idea how long I can keep this up I really need a day off I mean okay technically Friday is my day off but that day is lost because I spend all my time sleeping to adjust my schedule to weekend hours because weeknights are 10pm - 6:30am and weekends are 3pm - midnight so I spend most of Friday trying to adjust my body clock and even then I'm a zombie (see what I did there?) all of Saturday afternoon and even though Monday was Memorial Day I still worked it and the overtime pay is gonna be awesome but I have no idea what day it is anymore because I worked weekend hours yesterday so that felt like Sunday but when I get home after work tonight it will be Wednesday morning and where the fuck did all the days in between go?

  1. I work 11 PM - 7 AM every week and have done so for the past decade. What I do on Friday is just not sleep until the night time. I get out of work Friday morning at 7 AM, eat breakfast, shower and start doing things. Errands and such. Friday afternoon is grocery shopping with my wife & then dinner and a movie at home. Low key stuff. I normally take caffeine in the morning. Saturday is my day with my wife. I nap on Saturday night and then stay up until 5 - 6 AM Sunday, then it's back to a nocturnal schedule. You get used to it.
