- Need to earn big for some future plans. (syempre numero uno ang kaperahan dyan!)
- The company is offering a great training which I think, will help me grow in my chosen career (kung meron man akong career..lels).
- Leaving my comfort zone makes me a better person, improves my decision making and becoming strong in whatever problems encountered along the way.
Since this new job requires me to work on a graveyard shift, I decided to think of many ways to make me awake during those 9 hours of working. This might not work for everybody but is a surefire ways to keep you awake and alive till the cock crows and beyond.
How to do it:
If you are hypertensive and caffeine is your number enemy, you might want to try this very efficient and effective way to stay alive. This is very self explanatory.
Requirements: Ears, toothpicks
All you need to do is to get a toothpick and then pinch your ear, scream in agony and feel the sleep melt away. Easy right?
MIX DRINKS EVERYONE
Get a 3 cups of coffee in the pantry and 3 bottles of energy drink (cobra, extra joss, etc.). Mix ingredients in a liter jug. Shake, chug and do a little dance while mixing it. I believe most people working at night are caffeine immune already and I think drink a cup of coffee wont keep you awake for long hours. You can drink cups of coffee but then doze off after a few minutes.
Mixing coffee and energy drink will surely keep you awake like a firefly. BE CAREFUL though that your blood pressure might hit its limit. Nonetheless, you will be as perky as a high school student and ready to confront those irate callers. Kaya ingat lang po at wag pasobra.
SCREAM WITH LEMONS AND NEEDLES
Requirements: Needles or Pins, Lemons or Kalamansi (para mas matapang)
How to do it:
- Prick yourself using the needle or pin
- Squeeze kalamansi on it
- Grimace in pain
This is better than a thousand caffeine jolts. If you happened to know and read the story of Ibong Adarna? This is what the prince did to stay alive and capture that mythical bird. So go and try it yourself, para makita mo hinahanap mo. Lels. This will also keep you away from getting caught snooring while you sleep on the middle of your shift.
Anyways, those are just some funny things to think when working at night. I know its hard to change our body clock but hopefully I can adjust so I can live a normal/not-so-normal life.
Goodluck to me!
