enough to make you kill someone
i used to do that during summer when i was off uni. not good.
Means you can hang out in the sun in the day and work in the night. Need to work out when to sleep I suppose, that could be tricky.
You sleep till about midday, then wake up feeling shit because it's a beautiful day and you've missed most of it, and you've got to get ready for work in a few hours anyway.
Maybe this is just deeply pessimistic, I mean 9-5 isn't any better I guess
...working midnight to midday shifts in a windowless bread factory. Was fairly horrific. Most of my work colleagues were recently released cons ramped up on speed so they could pull double shifts.
I genuinely felt like a bit of a wuss for only loading pallets onto trucks by hand for 12 hours at a go. Happy days*
but look at it this way: if you were working 9 to 5 then you're missing all that sun anyway.
you'll save a considerable amount of money from not beergardening.
I miss the main opportunity to go beering. Especially in weather like this.
if only for the fact it's impossible to sleep during the days + you miss most of the days
he does 15 hour shifts in a kitchen that's 30 degrees when the sun's out.
so I'm cooking him dinner for when he gets back.
what a bastard.
...I work in IT and am generally on call during the night on my shifts. Last night and tonight have been utterly devoid of anyone phoning in, as anyone with any sense has been out enjoying the weather, so it's been a weekend of listening to music, constant internetting and watching terrible films.
Same as last summer, really, with the extra bonus of the Euros being on this year - this does leave me in the awkward position as a Scot of wanting England to progress as far as possible, as no bugger ever bothers us when those games are on.
until I realised I probably had access to more sun than people not getting home until 5. Only thing is you can't enjoy it much knowing that you have to work soon. What I really want is to not have to go to work. That would be ace.
paid for first year of uni though
