i worked for two and a half years in a closed supermarket from 11 at nite until 7 in the morning stocking shelves. i felt like hell. like a zombie. my stomach was a mess. i never ate right. the flourescent lights did weird things to my vision. i would come home and close my eyes and hallucinate before falling asleep. for real! aural and visual hallucinations. i lived on cigarettes, muddy coffee, and candy. and diner food. and booze. yer only young once! seriously screwed up my knee and back cuzza that job too. it's the job that keeps on giving almost 15 years later!

I worked the night shift at a coffee shop for a year and a half, 10pm to 6 am. After 3am there were usually three to four students in the place. I would sit on the couch and Download music till 6. I enjoyed it for the first six months. It was quiet and I had my laptop. But then sleeping all day began to wear on me. That was two years ago, and I'm still trying to get back on a normal sleep schedule.

i worked until 3 or 4am for about 7 months straight but there's something OK about that, even going to sleep at 5am you're still safely on the side of yesterday/the day before. 7 or 8 and you've crossed over. i don't know how i could do that. i know a guy who worked night shift at a web site for like a year and he said it changed his personality eventually.

It completely made me balls-out insane. Making donuts all night, eventually the hot little circles started to look '80s Wham-style tanned & oiled chunks of manflesh. Also we were all somking weed & drinking Sparks energy drinks. I was also going to college right after my shift. My legs would jerk, I'd take a few incoherent & illegible notes, and then pass out. Bad idea.
