I think I've already told you how much I love my sleep. In fact I think I've told you that I act like a grandma when it comes to calling it a night at 12AM sharp on the weekends.... if I'm feeling adventurous. Well this week I'm turning my schedule upside down. This Tuesday I'm working the grave yard shift. GASP! Why did I volunteer for this? Yes.. I volunteered. I think I was blinded by the idea of bookoo bucks. I need to keep reminding myself of that.
So the shift starts at 7PM and lasts till 7AM. Technically I'm only on call so the night could either drag on endlessly or it could consist of me sleeping the entire night if the pager does not go off. I'm guessing I'm going to be so anxious though that a deep sleep is out of the question. To pump myself up, I've been thinking of all the junk food I can consume in the wee hours of the night. Everyone knows that food eaten after a certain hour does not go straight to your hips. Duh. Secondly I have been telling myself that the naps the following day are going to by VERY high quality. To me, naps can be a highlight of the day. I know I looked forward to my 2PM nap time during undergrad. It was glorious! Are you a night owl or grave yard shift worker? Any pointers for this sleep lover?
