2. You get caught in rush hour...but going the opposite direction of everyone else.

You're headed to work as other people are calling it a night, or you're leaving work as other people are starting their day.

You're headed to work as other people are calling it a night, or you're leaving work as other people are starting their day.

3. You don't remember the last time you actually went out in the evening like a normal social being.

4. Lunch break is not in your vocabulary.

Neither is "sad desk lunch." Which is probably a good thing.

5. You actually don't even refer to meals by their normal names.

My honest feeling today is that I'd like to go home and eat leftover rice directly out of a crock pot.

You could be chowing down on a burger at 5 a.m. or a yogurt parfait at 7 p.m., depending on how your work hours pan out.

6. You're a pro at falling asleep when it's light outside.

7. And at waking up and fully functioning when it's dark outside.

9. And get a haircut without having to sneak out of work.

10. Taking a vacation is great, but it's a big schedule adjustment.
