It is past 2 AM, and I don't plan on sleeping any time soon. That is because I work the night shift. I work as a temporary caregiver position at a nursing home on on weekends. I'm on the 11Pm to 7AM shift. My job is to clean up, occasionally do laundry, and set the tables for the breakfast crowd.Since the house is closing down by next year, the place is pretty empty.
That's also why, in a couple of weeks, I will be laid off.
I'm, actually, very glad that I am getting laid off now. This gives me enough time to apply for unemployment. Also, I was going to terminate my position anyway due to my trip to Africa.Not to mention the great feeling of sleeping during the night and working during the day (I have a second job, thankfully).
Does anyone else work the night shift? If so, how are you staying awake this fine evening?
