Working two jobs. Do you know anyone more crazy than me?

I have been working 2 jobs for more than 3 years. I know it is quite common for people to have two jobs and i even know a few who have 3 but they only work few times a week. These are usually part time/casual jobs where they only work for a few hours a day because most of them have to go to school. In my case, I have been working 2 jobs for the past 3 years. One normal 8-5 full time office job in the weekday morning then at weeknights + satuday night from 10pm to around 4:30am. I take naps in between those 2 jobs and i would say i still get around 8 hours of sleep in a day. Just that i don't have time to do other things anymore during weekdays. What do you think of this routine? Do you know any one who also works 2 jobs?

I get that question a lot actually. But i think i got used to that routine already though sometimes i do really feel tired. Usually i feel normal again after sleeping in during weekends and waking up around lunch time. My colleagues in my full time job have no idea about my routine but i do get tardy in the morning especially when getting up feels hard.

I know many people working two jobs. So long as you are happy with it I see nothing wrong with it. My only concern would be whether or not you are saving as opposed to spending it all, otherwise you might not be accomplishing anything by working two jobs. The idea is to eventually have more money in savings that earns than you earn from a job, otherwise you might simply go through life having worked for essentially nothing, never got to live, and die having experienced nothing.
