Always a day away

When you work midnights, there's no tomorrow. While you're up, everything is "today." Then, when you head home, you know you've got to be at work again on the same day. Tonight. Today. There is no "tomorrow." It never comes.

I worked at a hotel as the overnight auditor. After 7 months, going to work at 11pm was draining. I never could sleep much, maybe 4-5 hours a day. But it was nice to have a beer in the morning after work.

Some people can't handle working midnights. I can't handle working mornings. Bodies are just different.
