Sleep Deprivation

Coffee CupWhy is it that whenever given the opportunity, I will stay up until the wee hours of the morning? My night-owlish tendencies do have some drawbacks – like not starting my day until after noon which seriously limits how many useful hours I have to accomplish things.

Being unemployed gives me an unprecedented opportunity to stay up until 3:00, 4:00 or even 5:00am, in which case I often sleep til noon or later. And the rest of the day I’m walking around like a half-asleep zombie.

And then every day I tell myself “I’m going to bed at a reasonable hour tonight!” and I believe it until 11pm rolls around then I’m wide awake and I tell myself “I’ll stay up one more hour” … until of course its 4am again.

*YAWN* When will I ever learn?
