Longest Day Evar!

Monday, March 05, 2007

Adjusting to changes in scheduling can be a trial. The shift work, the training, the commute the commitments and communications are challenging. One does not necessarily need a reason to wake up in the mornings but for experiencing new obstacles and suffering more indignity, the few triumphs are all the sweeter. Sometimes sucess can only be measured in failures. How often have we all made mistakes that serve to humble ourselves into accepting our limitations and temper our resolve. These are the events that fill our lives. Moments interupted only by the dissimilation of our unconscious mind. Blessed sleep brings dreams of flight and heals the scratches both in mind and body. To deny sleep is to tempt our mind into trickery. To tamper with the circadian cycle is to disrupt the natural rhythms of our very life. I haven't slept in two days.

changing shifts does suck. What is worse are mixed shifts, where you have to be at work at 4 AM one day and 10 AM the next or something. It really screws with your mind.

Yeah then come home from a 12 and be a parental unit for another 12.
