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.
