how much work is too much work? also: graveyard shifts
at what point... are you officially a workaholic?
or is that point not reachable if you don't have kids or a significant other?
and is it déclassé to be a workaholic single woman, for the rest of my life?
in my head, it's okay to do an 80 hour week, if you're single and extremely good at your job(s). and you can do this into your 40's and 50's and it's still socially acceptable? yes?
all my friends say no.
i don't have a spouse or children, so i feel like it's okay to be married to work.
plus i like my life, and have to pay for it all somehow.
right now i'm averaging a 78 hour work week, but lately that's been closer to 85. i CANNOT imagine doing only 40 hours. i feel like my hands are too idle, and not to be trusted with that much down-time.
ALSO: does anyone else work overnight/graveyard shifts? if so how are you managing sleep? and how long have you been doing it? I'm on year 3 of working graveyards, and it's starting to add up... I've heard some people do it their whole life, and others crumble at the 2-4 year point.
i am so vain. and yet, so masochistic. how can the two coexist?
