back to the living

Third and last night at work tonight...and then on Tuesday I get to come back to a normal life! Yes, I am coming to day shift!~
Honestly, I did not like night shift at all. There were some pluses to it, like staying up later even if you had to work the next day, but besides that? Sleeping all day, eating at weird hours, driving to work when everyone else is coming home and winding down? ugh, so isolating!
And I never felt like I got restful sleep compared to my normal schedule. For instance, my body used to wake up at like 6-7 in the morning on it's own accord on day's off and I would feel great. Now? I wake up only because my alarm tells me and I still feel like I could sleep 12 more hours, despite the hours I already received.

I am nervous about working days' only because they are busier with rounds, traveling, and more family, but I think it is better to jump right into that sort of thing instead of hanging around on nights and getting used to  a slower pace.
