Are you a nighttime, wide awake owl or a cheery bird that wakes up with the sun? We’ve decided to interview the night owls of the world since so many people love to give them a lot of flak for sleeping in and never getting ahead of their days. When you’re not a college student who has the freedom to party all night—or the more studious type who studies all night after working and going to class—sleeping late can become a debacle for some… especially if you live with people who lead quite a different schedule from your own. If you lead a regular 9 to 5 kind of job, then it may be quite difficult to maintain your night owl ways.
An Interview WithTaragh Bracken On Sleep Schedule
It is nonetheless intriguing to understand people who despite having time constraints with the job they work, they still manage to be night owls. How do you juggle everything on one plate, especially when you have a family and social life on top of everything? We took a look at Taragh Bracken’s schedule, since as a family lawyer it is difficult to get a wink of sleep and still follow up on your easily 80-hour weeks of work.
Family Lawyers Barely Sleep
As a family lawyer, it’s understandable that sleep isn’t something that comes naturally. You are struggling to keep afloat when you’re dealing with sometimes five different cases at a time, and you come home at ungodly hours only to work again. When asked, Taragh Bracken confirmed that her family life is well maintained because of her heightened time management skills. She will go in to work at about 7:00 AM every morning, only attaining approximately 6 hours of sleep a night. She will then leave the office at 6:00PM, keeping in mind that her lunches are often work-related or done slumped over her computer.
A Salary That Justifies The Hours
However, this is a woman who has the salary to back up her consistent hours. Since she runs her own practice, she can afford to then spend a few quality hours preparing dinner with her family and playing games with her two five-year old twins. Taragh then gets back to work at around 10PM, finishing up on certain details for the cases that she’s been working on so that she is prepared for the next day. If she needs to be present in court, then she will often leave the office at 10PM at night and have to skip dinners for a week. It’s just the way a lawyer’s life is.
