Working the 3rd shift is no picnic, is it? While we're all grateful to be working, especially in this economy, being on this backwards schedule has some side effects.
For instance, I lose track of times and dates like never before. The day can really get away from me, and before I know it, it's time to get some rest!
I like to cook just about every day and bring my own meals; it saves a few bucks and when I make my food, I eat a lot healthier than I would if I bought something on my way in.
But sometimes, things happen and you arrive at the job for the overnight shift empty handed.
The cool thing about being in a 24/7 town like NYC is that it you don't have to starve! If you work in the 5 boroughs (or anywhere, really), there are sites like Grubhub where you can search for places that deliver all night long! You never know when sites like that will come in handy!
