Disconnected?

Have you ever felt totally disconnected from the world? That's how I have been feeling lately. Work has totally consumed my life. And it isn't even the whole "That's-what-happens-when-you-get-out-into-the-real-world-and-work" factor. It's the whole working nights thing and having a summer class and sleeping during the day. I love love love the atmosphere of night shift and love the people that work there, but the schedule is kinda crappy. My eating is off. My sleeping is off. My social life is completely over. I've been reduced to blogging (basically a one-sided conversation) and leaving messages for people on facebook or emailing. I can barely even text anymore because when I'm awake and want to say hi or something everyone is asleep and nothing is more annoying that your little text ringer going off with a subsequent beeping afterwards when you haven't viewed it yet.

I don't think working nights would be so bad if I actually got to pick my schedule... but I didn't. I got stuck with crappy hours which deprive me of my Sunday night small group and force me to sleep when my family is off from work. I hardly ever see my family anymore and when I do it's a brief moment when I'm getting ready to go work or they're headed off to something fun that I can't go to. :( I know.... I'm complaining. But it's my blog and I can complain if I want to!

*Sigh* I guess I'll be going now. I need to go to bed kind of early tonight (before midnight) because I'm meeting my great aunt for lunch tomorrow and then I have a dumb educational inservice to go to at 1:30. I also need to run up to the floor and see if I can catch a minute with my educator. Ugh... I dread tomorrow already. Isn't there some sort of saying that says don't think on the things of tomorrow........ or something like that? Hmm....

Until............................
