Band of Brothers rewatch related: My love for Doc Roe knows no bounds. <3

Slow day today. Stayed awake all night, had breakfast and went into town to the drug store. Dangerous place. I always buy stuff I don't actually need. Had lunch and then I crashed, and slept until 8:30 pm.

Interesting that right now, there's a report on tv about people who only work at night. Like moi. ;)


Just the other day, I realized that I'm working at my new job for over a year already now! And I still like it. It may not always be easy and I'm still earning little, but I love my bosses and colleagues, and it feels like working with family - in a good way. ;)

What some of my friends still are not getting is that I work only at night, from Sunday to Thursday. Some say I'm lazy when I say that I sleep during the day, but well, the day is my night now and I gotta sleep at least six or seven hours to get through the night again.

Working at night is not a bad thing. Really. I've always been more of a night person anyway, so this is perfect. Well, almost. I admit that it's not always nice, but mostly when I'm not happy with going to work, it's more a thing of something on tv that I'll miss, or that I'm just not in the mood maybe. But that's normal, I guess. One of those days, you know? And when there's an event I want to go to that's on a work day, I just talk to my boss or take the day off. Like in every other job, too.

I work alone at night. I'm sitting in the office and maybe 95% of the month it's totally quiet there and I can just spend the night like I want. My night is usually like this: I get to work, check the phone and the computer, and that was that with actual work. LOL Then I read or watch my shows, dvds, write, or whatever. It can be boring, and it has been before. I got tired of the routine, and also, the negative side of working alone is that I have no one to talk to.

In the beginning, people told me that I wouldn't have a real life outside work if I only worked at night. But I think it's ok. I mean, during the week, I don't really meet with friends anyway, as they have to work until the afternoon, too. And I have Friday and Saturday nights off, so there's still plenty of time to meet them and go out.

It took me a while to get used to it, though. I had no problem with the staying awake at night, but the planning of the day then. Sometimes, I'm just too lazy to get up in the afternoon when the alarm rings, so I say, ah well, one more hour. And one turns into two or three, so then, the day is gone and I didn't do a thing. That bothered me, and still does sometimes, but it's better now. But you could say that I'm still working out a good plan for that. ;)

What's weird in winter season is that I'm totally missing out on daylight. I go to work when it's dark, and go home when it's still dark, then I sleep and when I wake up again, it's dark. Next week, for three weeks, it's gonna be the other way around, when I'm gonna work 12-hour shifts.

There are things that I can't always do due to working at night, but it's great, I think. And it beats being unemployed any day.

Also, wenn ich in die DM Drogerie gehe....
"oh, neuer Lidschatten, brauch ich zwar nicht, trotzdem toll, her damit." "Apfelduschschaum, kann man ja mal ausprobieren" "vielleicht noch ein neues Haarspray? Klar doch".
Mmmmmmmpfff. Teurer Ort!
