Night Auditor With No Life

When I signed on for this job a few years ago, it was the understanding that I would be returning to school to finish my degree. I have been a night auditor for over three years now, still in school, thankfully. I recently transferred to a property and moved closer into a major city and closer to the college that I am now attending. Well the auditor's position that I held at the other property didn't contain a fraction of the responsibilities that this new property does. Which leaves little study time, and I also cut my course load so that I could manage working nights and classes during the day. Now that I have these new responsibilities, I have to study during the day as well.

On top of all of this, I get the two most crappy days off. The days that none of my friends are off or nothing worth while is going on. Luckily for me, Super Bowl is in town this week and Mardi Gras, but usually Sundays and Mondays in New Orleans aren't really that lively. Unless you want to be known as that chick that hangs in the bar alone...
Well I know that this is temporary. I just want to know that there is someone out there that feels what I am experiencing. I want to be assured that by me being tired all of the time, away from my family, with no social life will be one day worth it all!!

I really want to find another job, but I do like working overnight, and I do like the benefits with this company. I hope to one day work within this company's communications or public relations departments. I wish to also travel with this job one day. Becoming a travel writer would be my next choice. If anyone has any ideas on how I could better deal with my situation, please let me know. I would welcome any suggestions!

I tried that. Couldn't even handle a single class well with the audit, and I used to do school full time when I could afford it! Melatonin supplements are the only thing that lets me sleep when I can't. Otherwise good luck!
