Pros and Cons of working like a Vampire

Sleeping in is a natural occurrence for me, but my family would sometimes look at me as I slept comfortable for, well, forever. Why get up? Well now I have a perfect reason to settle any whispering around me.

Overnights.

Yep! I got an overnight position at my local grocery store and it has been a huge improvement in my life. But what goes up must come down and by down I mean being supported by your cap’s lid as you doze off for an hour amist the shift.. Yep!

Pros? I don’t have to deal with rude customers who think they can bully us into doing what they want. Ever. I also don’t have to worry about rushing about when corporate overloads us because “you can handle it” *click*

Cons? I have done a complete 180 for my sleep cycle and have been such a ride. My eyes hurt when they closed. My temper flared when things went differently in the morning. My patience for people have shortened

My parent is a bit worried about me and have been keeping a real hard look at me. With love of course. He makes sure he sees me sleeping (because sometimes I’m too awake and stay up) and makes sure I am eating correctly. Making meals is always fun for him because then leftovers are separated into little meals for me. Ultimate assurance I have food with me, which as a food junkie I can’t complain.

Overnights, it’s really a interesting and calming. Especially when I see that there is 47 order hours set up and only 27 scheduled work hours for that day. It makes me feel better with the whole deal.

Merry Christmas! We All Made It!

If that sounded sarcastic, it wasn’t. I am truly happy that everyone came out from this holiday safe and sound. Working from the standpoint of an employee running in a food market, I can honestly say I was a little close towards sacrificing a kid to Krampus. But I didn’t, aren’t ya proud?

But after all of the time spent with the fam, liking it or not, it’s nice to be on the other side and gleefully say, its now 365 days away. I know I sound a bit anti-christmas

I know…

I know.

I am. But this year we got to see Sanulhu (Santa Cthulhu) at my D&D place so it was worth it. He even gave us sugar cookies! They are adorable!

So in the end it was totally worth it, getting a woman thrown out with her chocolate lab. And telling a kid to shut it with the screaming because their parents like to use the method “If I ignore them, they’ll stop eventually”. And getting eggnog-filled drivers on the road to my job every night. Yep.

I need a few more chocolate chip cookies. Merry Christmas! Stories are going to be delayed so I can also bang pots and scream for New Years Eve. Staying up is now longer a fun thing for me, just a thing I naturally do now.

See you in the new year!
