I'm thankful that I still have a job and all but working the overnight shift this week has been sucking! It's not so much the change of pace it provides, which I kinda like... it's the complete reversal of my sleep schedule that's been kicking my ass! I have a hard time sleeping during the day - it feels like a complete waste of a decent day to be wasting it sleeping. Luckily though, this is only for a week and by this time next week I'll be back to complaining about my usual shift... at least I'll be well rested enough to complain wholeheartedly!
Well instead of just wasting away this week I decided to put together a little musical tribute to the dreaded night shift... enjoy it during the daylight hours while my ass is sound asleep!
