1. This week I’ve been playing a really fun game called, “Let’s see how little sleep Bethany can get each night and still attempt to function at work the next day!” It’s been a blast. I’ve seen hours I hadn’t seen in ages. In fact, I believe the only early morning hour I haven’t seen over the past four nights is 5:00.
I’ve also learned lots of really cool things about myself, like that my body’s preferred method of letting me know how not-happy it is at the lack of rest is overwhelming nausea! Hooray! Always a good time.
I will own up to the fact that a couple of these sleepless nights have been my own fault. My roommate and I had friends over on Monday night that didn’t leave until 11:30, and while I knew I should go to bed by 10:30, I chose not to. I also consciously chose to be irresponsible on Tuesday night and stay out way, way past my bedtime because a certain hip hop classmate wanted to go out after graduation, and who was I to say no to that? However, I lay full blame on my body for refusing to fall asleep after I finally put myself to bed on Sunday and Tuesday nights. Come on, team. Let’s try to function as a unit, all right? I know you’ve got a lot going on, brain, but I promise we can overanalyze everything related to boys ever in the morning, okay?
2. Speaking of which, I have recently decided that for Christmas I’d like to be five years old again, because I’m starting to long for the days when boys had cooties and I was more concerned with avoiding them at recess so as to stay cootie-free than trying to use my girl-brain to interpret their boy-actions, which is a lot like trying to use a calculator to answer an essay question on an English exam (i.e.: useless).
My thoughts exactly.
3. And just a bit of a heads-up for those of you whose happiness depends on the regularity of my blog posting: Christmas break starts at noon for me today and runs through January 1. I’m sure there will be some blogging going on in there somewhere, but I can promise it won’t be on my usual Tuesday/Thursday/sometimes Saturday schedule, especially considering that I expect to be nowhere near a computer for the next two Tuesdays or next Thursday.
Are you one of those people who can function on little to no sleep? I’ve never understood you people. This girl needs her 7.5-8 hours.
Wonderfully exciting Christmas plans? I get to be home for more than three days, and I get to work at my favorite place on earth for a couple of days as well. Even though I’m definitely a morning person, I’m also looking forward to having the option to not get up early if I don’t want to for a few days. Bring on vacation!
