Nights!

In Uncategorized on January 5, 2013 at 8:35 am

My first night shift began in a weird place of knowing that I should be sleeping after my short 2 hour morning shift because I knew that I would have to work overnight but yet was not sleepy. I managed to get some sleep and the first shift passed uneventfully. I did a few silly things because it was my first time running those specific reports, but nothing I couldn’t fix. The biggest thing at night that is different than the day (which will sound silly), is that there is no one else there. If you have a problem or a question, there are usually many people around to help you out. At night you are the only person responsible for everything. Which is why new crew members aren’t typically assigned to nights until they’ve been around for several months, it takes a while to be comfortable enough with everything. I had a delightful time my first night shift. It was calm (probably because it was the night before New Years, everyone was resting up). At 3am I called the bridge to see how the boys up there were doing, then the night housekeeping manager came to the GS desk to eat some room service with me at about 4 am. Tonight should prove to be a little more interesting at it is indeed New Years Eve!!! Happy 2012 everybody!!!
