Had a good buddy in the 'stan. He told some wild stories when he got good and drunk.

It's a great job for a single man. You can make a lot of paper that way.

I normally study and crap at home and sleep at work now. So my social pattern isn't screwed up, because I do things with my friends during the day now

When I first started.. I slept during the day everyday. Now, I'm used to sleeping in an uncomfortable chair, and my body is accustomed to sleepin in on and off patches

You're young though and still have that circle from college. All my friends (the ones who haven't drifted away) work completely opposite shifts of me. And married life didn't help expand it like it should have, which is partly my fault for not getting more involved with things when I was off.
Now that I'm by myself again, I have to rebuild old connections and find new ones. It's not exactly easy.

Yeah I see what you're saying

Nightshift is becoming a common thing now, for all we know you might find someone on the exact same schedule as you

Start stalking some nurses

I'm not much for stalking. I do wish there was some place that they congregated after shift, but I guess a lot of shiftworkers actually sleep after they get off, unlike me.

Me.. I usually don't do anything but lay down and go to sleep when I get home from a night shift. Gives me more daylight time when companies are open.

I try to get stuff done when I get home now. I used to have a few drinks and kick back and OT, but that packed on the lbs. not getting back into that drinking alone habit.

Oh, I know. No way past it but through it. Might try to write some more stories, or design some new things.

Drinking alone is always depressing for me. Well, being drunk alone. I dont mind having a couple of drinks and chilling out

Yeah, I stayed in a haze. I'd get home in the morning and have my affections rejected, so I'd just sit on the back porch and have a few drinks while the sun rose. Water plants and stuff.

That's the biggest fear I have of post-grad life. I can imagine that's a pretty rough spot to be thrown in.

It could be a lot worse. Plenty of guys in my situation have gotten squeezed for every penny they are worth.
I got out essentially scot-free, financially. Which I suppose deserves a
