Sleep is so weird.

Posted by ApochPiQ, 25 October 2005 · 201 views

So, it's 3 AM. Usually, I'd be going to sleep right now. Today, I just (more or less) got up.

I decided that I'm tired of working on a 6 hour phase shift from my employer in Germany, so I went to bed around 8 last night to compensate. So far so good, although I still have a long day ahead of me to see how well (if at all) this scheme will work out. The best part seems to be that I can do the job I care about (game development) right after I wake up and I'm still more or less functional, rather than doing it after a day in a nightmarish office where I feel like ripping my eyes out with a spork.

The last time I tried something like this, it was a split schedule where I'd sleep for 4 hours after work, do game development, then sleep for another 2-3 hours before work again. That actually did a very nice job for a while, but after a few days it became pretty impractical, what with the always being asleep when I needed to take care of Real Life. With any luck a straight 6 hour shift should be a lot more manageable.

I've always liked working late at night, and I have some very deep sentimental attachment to watching the sunrise while I work, so I think this may turn out well. It'd almost be romantic, if not for the fact that I'm alone in an apartment at 3 AM.

On second thought, maybe my brain isn't working so well after all.

You're not the only who likes working at night or in early morning 4-7 AM. Too bad that work and social life keeps me from doing that as often as I'd like.
Easy: just move 6 time zones west [grin]
