Working Nights

leave a comment »

Over the past couple of days, I’ve had to work at night to babysit the lane closures and subcontractors while they do their night work.

My shift ran from 8PM to 8AM. Sounds fun? Nope.

And while I had some work to do, I still needed to find some time to kill. After a couple of days, here are some ideas I came up with if you ever have to work a night shift.

1. Hot Soup.

Mmmm mmm mmm! There is nothing better on a cold rainy day than a cup of hot soup.

2. Watch TV.

I had some catching up to with Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson. Thanks to Amazon Prime…I enjoyed a few episodes of Parks & Recreation while drinking some hot soup.

3. Read And Write.

I read for about two hours and was able to write in my journal real-life-blog-pages in my Leuchtturm 1917 notebook. By the way, this is where stuff really gets real. Like real life stuff for reals if you know what I mean.

4. Panda Videos.

No late night is complete without a proper viewing of cute baby pandas on Youtube.

5. Walmart Run.

While supermarkets and grocery stores may not be open at 1am, Walmart Superstores are. Treat yourself to some snacks, drinks, and view some late night creatures of Walmart.

6. Eat An Entire Bag Of These…

I truly am a fatty. Don’t judge me.

7. Watch More TV

Parks & Recreation round 2!

8. Workout

Need a workout especially after completing number 6. Thank goodness for 24 hour gyms! But not thankful for the creepy 70 year old woman who kept running around me and doing jumping jacks near my work out areas and what the heck is a 70 year bag of woman bones doing at the gym at 3am??

9. Nappy Nap.

I walked around the office looking for little treasures and found this sleeping cot that belonged to my boss. Of course I don’t mind taking a 45 minute power nap.

There you go.

A complete guide of things to do while you are working a night shift. I hope this helps!
