It was comfort TV and good conversation and I would not be tired no matter how early the sun set. The big reason is I was doing what I loved and I was always mentally active no matter how silly my actual life was. Sometimes all you really need to manage the stress of daily life is to be given the chance to work outside of rush hour. The most serious person in the most responsible job needs to laugh. Take a little time to do that and you won't notice as much how short the days have become.
