Default Re: Anyone work(ed) night shift?

I worked a night shift back in Oct 2011. I think I even made a thread similar to this one, actually.
Anyway, I got through the boring hours by bringing a laptop with Internet accessibility with me.
Sometimes I would fall asleep in my car, too.

As for getting used to the schedule, your body might eventually get accustomed to it, but that wasn't the case for me. I worked from 6 pm to 6 am for several weeks, up until about Nov. I would get home, crash, & wake up a couple hours later.
The longest time I ever got to sleep during that work shift was from ~8 am to 12 pm. So just a little less than 4 hours. I started getting terrible looking bags under my eyes that still haven't fully gone away yet!
Try to get as much sleep as you can, man. It didn't work for me--- hence the reason I switched to the day shift after that--- but it might for you. Idk.
Good luck.
Try not to drink energy drinks. They'll keep you awake for a few hours but then make you crash terribly later. I was barely able to keep my eyes open!
