For Just One Night

Today was the first day of autumn. And it was cold, which was a nice change from the heat of summer. But when I went to have a shower this evening, I didn’t want to get out because it was warm. πŸ˜›

James was sick today. 😞 One emoticon: 😷 That explains it all, hopefully. I hope he feels better soon. He’s having some sleep now. β™₯️

Speaking of sleep, last night (or this morning) I idiotically slept at 2:30am. Please don’t ask me what would have occupied me in the wee hours of the morning. I’m pretty sure I was doing site stuff, as usual. I didn’t mind doing it, so don’t think I’m bleeding my head out just to do so.

Having slept at that ungodly hour, I thought that waking up early would make me tired, and I would be sleeping early tonight. I don’t know if it’s working, but I woke up at 6:00am. That’s only four hours of sleep, and I’m running on that right now. I’ve been yawning this evening so hopefully that is a good sign. If I sleep early tonight I will be able to wake up early tomorrow, because I have university. 😁

Hmm, why am I bouncing. I was looking forward to going back to university this year, and I still am, but at the same time I know the workload is going to be a real bitch. Hello blog posts of complaints about people on public transport and tedious assignments, and lonely days without James at uni. 😰 😒

He’ll still be at his dreary internship. 😞

But going back to the sleep topic. On my phone I can request a “random trivia of the day” or something like that, for free. One boring morning I decided to request the day’s piece of trivia.

A person will die from total lack of sleep sooner than starvation.

You would die from starvation after a few weeks, but it takes about ten days for you to die from total lack of sleep. But it would be a little hard to get to that point, because you would be having no sleep at all. Just as I read up on this fact again, I realise that maybe I have a shitty memory because I don’t get enough sleep.

Of course, it’s a scary thought that holding your eyes open for so long and not sleeping for just a few days will cause you hallucinations and memory loss. But I think many of us would drop to sleep even after being awake for a long time. Maybe some coffee and TV (LOL, Blur song reference there) would keep you up for a bit, but there isn’t much reason why you’d pull yourself through sleepless days and nights.

Sometimes when I am really tired, I can feel my eyes shutting. I think this used to happen a lot last year for me, but it hasn’t recently. Maybe because I always slept late when I had university the next day, and this break has been a little refreshing for me. Lilian and I planned to regulate our sleeping patterns for the new year… and they’re not. πŸ˜…

But, I don’t think I’m going to drag myself through terrible days where my eyes are going to close of their own accord. That just tells me that I need sleep. 😴
