    other than keeping the same time...ie staying up all night on the days you're not working there's not much. I'd invest in some kind of serious sunlight blocking blinds or put a blanket over the window.

    I did it a while ago and loved it...especially the looks you get buying beer after work at 6 am. shits priceless. Nah..its not that bad.

    I used to work 3rd shift at a roach motel behind bullet proof glass. That job was the jump off. I loved working those hours. 10-6. Not so bad. Id just go to sleep around 7 am and wake up around 2. I always seemed to get better sleep that way instead of sleeping through the night.

    you could bring a sleeping bag to work with you.


    i know some nurses who work the overnight shift a lot.
    they just do it.
    they live normal hours besides.
    one of them brings a massive thing of coffee with her to work.

    PSP STANDS FOR PLAYSTATION PORTABLE.

    IT'S A HANDHELD DEVICE WHERE YOU GET TO PLAY GAMES, WATCH MOVIES, LISTEN TO MUSIC, ETC.

    WHAT HE IS SAYING IS THAT YOU SHOULD USE THIS DURING THE 3RD SHIFT TO MAKE THE TIME GO BY QUICKER. TECHNICALLY THE TIME DOESN'T GO BY ANY QUICKER, IT JUST SEEMS THAT WAY WHEN YOU ARE CONSUMED IN A NON-BORING ACTIVITY.

    Just buy a nice little portable DVD player, or a laptop if you have one, and a sketch book.

    My only advice is if you plan on drinking after work, dont over do it...Cause them midnight hangovers aint nothing nice.
