I guess I don't completely understand what your asking. Money lifestyle, its ok. Life outside of work is a bit different for me in that I work second shift. So I am often awake when most of my friends are sleeping and sleeping when they are awake. However, I have always been a bit of a night owl, so not a big deal for me.

I'm a night shifter so I guess a little different from your average 9-5er. I am physically active at work, lives are on the line, I don't sit down too much (most nights), I have a weird sleep schedule and a twisted sense of humor.

Is it just me or do most of us night people tend to have a twisted sense of humor??? :lol_hitti

I have extremes. Sometimes I am running around so much my butt forgets what it feels like to sit. Then I am so lazy that my butt forgets how to move. :D
