I think I’m slowly becoming a morning person. These early morning hours can provide one with some much needed personal time for self-reflection and internal preparation for the day ahead; early mornings also provide opportune moments for journaling.
Working two jobs is surprisingly doable, it’s all about the people with whom you’re working. If you work with tolerable people that actually get shit done, you’ll find it satisfying to work alongside them. I recommend communicating your boundaries with your boss immediately – DO NOT sacrifice your personal time to cover anyone’s shift. Other shifts are not your responsibility and your personal time is sacred for your own mental health.
