The Grand Prix Experience: Second Night Shift

IMG_3387Night number 2 is finished! 8 more nights to go!

Last night was another benign night. Only one patient came in and the rest of the night was basically completing set-ups and inventories.

I started to get colds though. The prvious night was really cold inside the tent. My running nose gave a headache. Good thing, I was given a chance to doze a bit for two hours just to be able to rest. I regained my energy after that. I checked with the doctor also, and I was given an antihistamine and a nasal drop.

I feel tonight’s gonna be a busy night shift. There will be thousands of people in the Island, with no less than BEYONCE performing at the concert arena tonight. Poor me, I will not be able to watch her sing and dance because I’m working in the night. I heard the day staff will be going to the concert after their shift tonight. Their IDs would allow them to pass by the entrance for free! Whaaa! I wish I could watch!

Time to sleep now.

Check out my previous nights pics galore:
