But not in the way it does for other people my age. I’m 28 and single and should be mixing it up with the best of them out on the town living a playful and carefree life. Are my weekends even remotely close to being like this? Yeah right. Friday night I was watching some newsish show like 20/20 but got bored so I went and to my room and picked up the book I’m reading. But I fell asleep around 9:30 and woke up about an hour later. I could barely function to take out my contacts and then collapsed on my bed and didn’t get up Saturday until 11.
Saturday night was spent reading and I went to bed around 11. Got up a little after 7 Sunday morning and took a nap in the afternoon for about an hour and a half. Well now I’m getting a little too much sleep so lastnight I make myself go to bed at 11 even though I’m not all that tired. But I get up around 5:30 every morning so I figured I should try and get some sort of sleep for the night. I don’t know how long I layed there before finally falling asleep but I’m sure it had to be at least an hour. Then to top it off I woke up at 4 this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep. Finally I got out of bed at quarter to 6 and came in to work at my usual time of 6:30-6:45ish.
As of this moment I’m doing ok but I feel the crash coming soon. I’ll leave work at 3 and since it’s finally a beautiful day out will end up at the park with my book. The problem is that I’ll fall asleep and won’t be able to go to bed tonight and the pattern will repeat itself all week until my body can’t handle it and come Friday I’ll be going to bed at 9 or 9:30 (which is an improvement b/c I’ve been in bed by 8 before).
I guess I should be grateful I’m not out getting trashed like everyone else right? It’s better for me in the long run right? Oh man, I still have 5 1/2 hours of work left. Not. Sure. I can. Make it. Must. Sleep!
