People often tell me, "I don't know how you can stand to work a graveyard shift."
To tell the truth, I enjoy working this shift. I often feel like the only person in the world. At least from 1AM to 6AM.
The only issue I had was a little trouble sleeping in the evening. I need a near total darkness in order to sleep well, and that's hard to achieve at 3PM. I covered my windows, but there was still light entering the room.
My solution? It's a common one, I know, but it's a first for me.
I bought a sleep mask. Best $8 I've ever spent. The two evenings since my purchase I have slept amazingly well.
It's comfortable, adjustable, doesn't get in the way (I'm a side-sleeper), and a little sexy as well. No, really, I put on the mask and I don't know what's going to happen to me. Gives a little sense of fear, but more sexy. Supposedly fear is sexy, too, but I've never experienced that and I just don't believe it.
I really, really enjoy having a sleep mask.
And working the graveyard shift is great. I have cleaning to do, and other responsibilities later in the shift, but I usually end up with four hours to myself. I can do homework or mess around on the internet.
I love demotivational posters, by the way. Hilarious. Oh, and the webcomic Amazing Superpowers is, well, amazing. And laugh-out-loud funny. Good thing no one's around to hear me laughing in the dead of night.
