What I wish was different
I wish the hours had been a little more conducive to a more regular schedule. My shift every weekday was 7 am to 3 pm, and oftentimes I came in early to work some overtime, so I was clocked in at 5 am until 3 pm almost every weekday during the summer. Since I'd just graduated high school, I still had friends in town, and I still lived at home since the commute was close enough. I would get home around 4, but only stay up until about 7 because of how early I'd need to get up the next morning, so it was challenging socially. There was also a lot of sitting involved, and some of the tasks along the line occasionally hurt my hands. All in all though, these were easily overlooked and I managed to find enough time between work, family, friends, and healthy sleeping habits, and my hands always fine by the time I got home.
