daylight junkie

So I have a new fetish... daylight! haha

Having worked the early shift for 3 years I'm not used to seeing the sun on the way into work, and since it's January there isn't much sun anyway, but let me get to the point... I am currently working a shift covering holiday that allows me to leave for work just before 9am... the sun is up and waiting for me! And it's soooooo nice! It doesn't feel abnormal to be awake once the sun is up! I am, alas, back to a 6.30am wake up pretty soon so it's a short lived blast of normality... but what a diff'rence a day(light) makes as some might say(sing) ;)

Now I preface this by saying that you can find research to prove black is white and vice versa.. but! I read recently that shift workers are more prone to putting on weight because their sleep pattern isn't natural enough... i think there's a lot to be said for Mother Nature's body rhythms, she knows what she's doin' and then modern life comes along and messes it all up!

So while I can I'll be soaking up those daytime rays... i suggest you grab a little sunshine too, vitamin D is good for ya!
