One of the biggest challenges of working in my profession is shift work. One week I could be doing days and then the next week I could be doing evenings.
Then I found out this fall that it’ll be going back to 24 hours which means I will have to do night shifts. I have never done a night shift before and those who know me well, know that I am more of an early bird than a night owl. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I can’t do the work associated with a night shift, but like anybody else, I am concerned about surviving it and keeping my well-being at bay and that includes my mental health alongside of how much sleep I get.
Then there’s the part of adjusting and readjusting back to days once I get time off, all while still doing everything to squeeze in a little gaming session.
I will always make it my top priority to have time for myself, be it gaming, or writing on this blog! The other night I had a very vivid dream that was a combination of things.
First it was a series of tornadoes wreaking havoc on this city and sometimes when a lot is going on in my life, that’s when I am most prone to having dreams like that, then with several friends and family members, I uncovered some kind of ship that looked like your typical bridge on any Star Trek vessel. We were able to get it functional again and escape.
Later in the dream I was flying across the devastation the tornadoes had caused and now everything was frozen. I began to sing something with a beautiful melody and I wish I could remember it so I could put words onto a draft.
I’m also playing Resident Evil 7 and it’s disturbingly good. I’ve been scared a few times but I’m brave enough to keep playing!
That’s my quick update, stay strong and clear.
