This is the second day in a row where I have actually gotten out of bed when the alarm went off. Usually I snooze it and sleep for another half an hour to an hour. This is also the second day in row I have gone to sleep after midnight; closer to one.
It’s the worst. I need my sleep. I like getting eight to ten hours of sleep a night. I function best on that much sleep. I am less crabby, I look better (no giant bags under my eyes), and I can sleep.
I haven’t intentionally stayed up late the last few nights, I have intentionally woken up early for school and work. When I lay down in bed lately, my mind won’t shut off. It just keeps racing and I think about everything. And I mean everything. Last night, I kept thinking about everything I have to do for the rest of the semester and then my brain switched gears to thinking about Jurassic Park. Not just the first one, I examined all three in my mind. Talk about a terrible waste of time.
I need to find a way to stop my brain at the end of the day. I wonder if counting sheep really works. I just can’t continue staying up this late. I can’t.
Did I mention everything is more dramatic/serious/emergency when I am tired?
