30 Jobs for Early Birds and Night Owls

It’s 7:30 a.m. After hitting the snooze button (several times), you’re standing in the shower, willing the cold water to open your heavy-lidded eyes. You stumble into work at 9 a.m. sharp, chugging your third cup of coffee. You’ve no sooner than flopped down in your chair when your co-worker zips by, chirping, “Good morning!”

“What’s his problem?” you mumble. His “problem” is that not only has he been at the office since the moment you woke up; he has also walked the dog, been to the gym and sent 35 e-mails to prospective clients by the time you’ve seen him.

When 5 p.m. rolls around, you’re finally at the top of your game, but now it’s time to go home. You work out, eat dinner, drink some wine and finally hit the hay around 2 a.m.

Rises as gladly in the single tree
As in the whole orchards resonant with bees."

It's really the job that matters, its the hours.
My favorite hours are 2nd shift 3 to 11pm

If you can find work at a medium to large manufacturing plant, most of those run 24/7 and you might be able to get a shift that works best for you.
