At this point in my life I’m working the evening shift full time until school starts. It’s been pretty great so far with the exception of, you know, the occasional craziness. But I mean what was I expecting. I work in an Alzheimer’s care facility. Sundowners is the name of the game. But I mean aside from that shenanigans it’s been fabulous.
But as all health care professionals can attest(most?) evening shift(second shift, whatever you want to call it) is the worst for having an actual life outside work.
I’ve been working 1500-2300 for the last two weeks and I’ve slipped into half-vampire schedule. You know, sleep until 1300 and stay up until 0400. You know. That schedule. Unfortunately for me I live in a red state and everything in town closes at 2200. Except for the bars and Walmart…
Today I had a day off. I went shopping with an old friend and then treated myself to a double feature(thanks Amazon Prime). It is now the time when decent people go to bed, but I haven’t even been awake for 12 hours. It’s like lunch time.
I AM BORED OUT OF MY MIND!!!!
SOMEBODY GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!!
