- Marla Jones
I need this spring break bad, man. Not in a “I want to party” way, but more so in a “I need this for my mental and physical health” way.
for the last 2 weeks sleep has been more like an old schoolmate I occasionally bump into but don’t really keep in touch with
Actually, this is every week…
Goodnight to all. This sleepy little Marla is off to bed. It’s another full day of designing tomorrow, meeting up with a class sister, along with playing Bible Reading Plan catch-up. It’s going to be a great (but packed) day and I can’t wait!
Today I ran my first 5k. It was entirely exhausting, but I do feel accomplished.
See, as I had not been used to going to bed early, I did not fall asleep until 2 am, and then had to get up four hours later to get to the race on time.
I’m excited that I ran the whole thing. I didn’t think I’d be able to. After, I tried to catch what was left of our church service. Chai tea with a friend. Bath. Lunch at home of sauteed veggies.
I calculated while I was in the bath. If I have class at 10 am tomorrow, and I need to get up at 8:30 am in order to get there on time than I must go to sleep by 12:30 am to get 8 hours of sleep. It was 6:30 pm. I had 6 hours. I was going to push through readings, essay revisions and a response paper and just go to bed. What do I do instead?
Accidentally FALL ASLEEP ON MY COUCH for FOUR HOURS. NOOOOOOOOOoooooo. Well, I suppose homework + 8 hours of sleep = 4 hours of sleep + homework + another 4 hours of sleep?
At least I’m hoping it will work that way!
Pictures of my run to come soon. Stay posted.
There’s a point I reach every time I’m up late doing homework where I make a worst-case-scenario plan. I start calculating. Calculating what homework is more important to do, and at what point I should give up and go to bed. I calculate how many hours of sleep I can manage and at what point do I pass the threshold where it is easier to get no sleep than such little sleep.
Trying to reset my sleep schedule so I stayed up last night and I’m gonna sleep early tonight. Falling asleep at the library. I CANNOT FALL ASLEEP AT THE LIBRARY. This specific library is only open for 1.5 more hours today!!! Must stay awake. Get information. Limited opportunities. Paper due. Wednesday. Not yet started. Why.
Time fer bed.
Thyme fur bed. Sounds like some sort of hippy thing. A thyme fur bed.
I just really need to sleep.
And not in one of those “LALALALALA PROCRASTINATION, oh look it’s 2 am I should sleep” kind of ways
but more so in the I’ve slept 2 hours since I woke up @9am on Monday.
Praying for God’s strength. I’ve got two more midterms this week. This is gonna be one long semester.
Once this research is done, hopefully my paper will just fly from my fingertips.
As for right now though my eyelids won’t stop twitching. Too many texts to review and too much caffeine. Not enough sleep.
This is why God commanded rest on the 7th day… for crazy people like me.
