night shifts...

its been another ruthless wastage of a day all together. I wonder if i really enjoy this nocturnal life! Working all the way through the calmness of the night, the small smoke breaks and the usual stroll through the darkness all around..No wonder why I could relate the "soothing" clicks of the keyboard to the cool breeze of a motionless night! The obvious pain is the disturbed sleep that awaits.. Busy roads and noisey streets welcome me all my way back from office..Cruel rays of sun pierce through the curtainless windows of my rented flat cursing me for not following the laws of nature. After a meaningless effort to position myself so that the rays doesnt glow my face, I burried myself in the blanket and wola... power goes off.. Thanks for the 4 hours powercut of AP government!

Nine hous of work, One hour of jouney in cab, nine hours of disturbed sleep, almost one hour of chit chatin on phone, and huh!!! four hours is what i have to do the rest of my work! "Four hours" to clean up, cook, eat, wash utensils, buy grocery, pay bills, check mails and all those personal stuff!

How I wish I live like a human being, wake up in the morning, catch up with the news, have breakfast, kiss my wife goodbye [this part is a rescent add-on to my dreams.. and trust me, it surely look like a distant dream!!], go to office.. Come back in the evening, do my work, have dinner and sleep blissfully - with no light or noise to wake me up.. Well, I sure envy all you guys who work in the normal shifts.. Developement sure have its advantages over support jobs!! :-)
