At the moment, I don’t have much of a social media presence at all, so I’m not about to become one of those idiots who wax endlessly on their timelines about how shit their job is and then wonder how on earth their boss found out about it, but suffice to say…
I need a new one.
I am off every weekend, so that’s a tick in the pro column, but on the other hand I’m up at 4am Monday to Friday, so that’s a big fat con.
I’ve been doing it for over a year now, but contrary to my expectations, you never really get used to waking up in the middle of the night. I’m fine when I’m working, but the moment I get home I’m fighting sleep until bedtime… which is another thing: I simply can’t go to bed early enough to set me up for the next day. I mean, I could, but kids are still outside playing at that time. I probably average 5 hours of sleep a night, which may not sound like much of a sacrifice but believe me, it catches up to you.
So, I need to find something with hours that are easier to manage, and something that gives me options in the evening.
Watch this space.
