Day Walking diary

1. I work in the evenings.  I'm a night walker.
2. I usually work 4-5 hours at a time.  If it is a two show day I work and have a 1-2 hour break in between these shifts.

This week I'm working during the day in the costume shop.  Here is a diary of my day walking adventures.

O' dark thirty- alarm goes off. Press snooze.  Repeat 4 times.  

Dawn- finally wake up.  Go to gym for only 30 minutes since I slept through the other 30.

8:30- arrive at work.  Start labeling project.

9:00-  Move from labeling project to sewing actual costume.  Unprepared for this because a.) not really awake and b) thought I was going to label all day.

9- 12- Sewing. Sitting by window. Sun is so bright in my eyes I consider going to my car to get sunglasses.

Also start listening to Matched by Ally Condie on iPod.  OMG this book is amazing.  Why didn't I read it sooner.

Spend rest of morning making skirt and listening to audiobook.

12:30 Lunch.  Cook lunch and eat lunch.  OMG how do people make and eat lunch in 30 minutes?  Decide to research GF bread if I ever do this again.  But a) don't like bread and b) GF bread is expensive and c) don't really like bread.

3:00 finish skirt.  Woot.  Start working on bodice.

4:00 OMG sitting for so long.  Body= sore.  Need to go home and play dance video games.

5:00 leave.  It is dark

6:30- home after chiro appt.  Make dinner.  I am awesome at making tacos. Eat dinner then go to sleep by 9.

12:00 a.m.  woken up by cats because this is the time I usually go to bed so this is the time they also usually get food.

I think I would fall asleep on the job if I worked at night! Good for you to squeeze in a little exercise time for yourself. Cats, they are so intelligent.

Busy, busy lady! I agree with the other comment; I could never work a night job. After 3 PM my brain shuts down until 6 AM the next morning. Needless to say I've never been much of a party goer or late night enthusiast! :)

Eeek! I used to do shift work. Sometimes I'd work 7am-4pm then sometimes 4pm-1am. I'm normally begging with my brain to shut off around 3am after a 4-1 shift, especially if I have to do a 9am-6pm shift the next day. Or the worst, a 7-4. Feeling your pain. And cannot wait to read Matched too!

Your job sounds kind of awesome! Though I can see how you would get so sore.
