    Starlight works shift, don't know who else does. I would pick a time of day and start new points each day at that time. As long as you go with the same time to start your new day's points and stick to that, I can't see a problem.

    If you know you get the munchies on nights, that might help you as well as you'll have a new set of points to start on x

    You can certainly start your "day" at any time you want, so if it will easier for your to stick to your points by starting your day at midnight then go for it! Starlight will be able to give you expert advice on WW and shifts as she works shifts herself.
