Working night shift will take your soul. It’s really the worst thing ever created. Yeah, your paying the bills and feeding your family but at the same time every once of hope and ambition is being drained out of your body. I did it for 4 years and I will never do it again. I rather do home invasions. So a Idea came to me. Why don’t a give people who work night shift a place to vent and get some of that night shift stress off of their chest. That’s all I needed when I worked overnight…..just someone to vent to.
I feel like I’m 45 years old. Back hurting for no reason. I come home at 8 in the morning looking like death and my family just looking at me all worried n shit like I’m about to collapse. I barely eat anymore and I’m always tired. This is how my life is now working the nightshift.
I remember when I got this job (my 2nd one ever) I thought it would be a good choice for my career path of engineering. I needed experience, I was just starting off, and fuck it I’m young I can do this. But I was nervous as shit tho.
I was so nervous I was asking everyone that I knew what to expect. Everybody told me its straiiiight, its chillllll, don’t worry it’ll go by quick. All this shit. I had also just now started fuckin with NerdAtTheCoolTable’s website at the time. I came across it late cuz I always thought man that’s just 1 of Budden’s boys who does promotion for him or whatever. But after checking his site out, I saw that he’s just a regular nigga hustling tryin to get to the next day, with some Eye Candy sprinkled in. So I said fuck it, lemme ask this nigga. See what he says. I tweeted “yo Nerd, I’m starting a nightshift job next week, any advice on what I should do?…” This nigga kept it to the upmost level of real. He said “don’t go.”
I was dead ass about to listen lol. But whatever, I went. And I’ve been going for a month now. And not a night goes by that I don’t wanna get the fuck up outta there. I’ve never been more sad in my life. Think i’ll be camping out here to vent for a long time.
Thank you Nerd
No problem. I’m here for you. I’m here for all over you overnight strugglers. Your dream is still possible. Don’t let eating lunch at 4am stop you.
