zombie is the name how a colleague of mine refers to when she describes her status as a night shift nurse. granted, she loves her grave yard shift, however, it's a total downer to her love life and other personal relationships, which had dwindled over the years. furthermore, most of the time her family and friends have gotten use to her not being present during early events or planning trips for festivities in the future. following this further, she claims that her own cat seems not to recognize her at times when she works doubles
. on the other hand, several of her friends have set her up with good perspective dates, always to reschedule or not being able to comply with the demands of a new relationship. therefore, my question to all of you night owls is how do you balance the vampire lifestyle as she refers to it, with your social life?
