Default 3rd shift...

Well, here we go! I'll be starting my new job here in a couple of hours. I go in at 1am and work until 9am at a Distribution center. I've never worked a third shift job before so this will be an experience for me.

For those of you who don't know, I decided to change my career path a couple of months ago and ended my 7 year run of restaurant management to pursue my dream. I'm enrolled at ITT tech in Indianapolis. I'll drive 1.5 hour to take classes Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and then drive back in time to make it to work. Also have a class on Saturday morning.

This will be a huge flip-flop from my previous lifestyle. But I feel up to it.

Good luck. Working nights can be a bit rough. I did it for 12 years.
