Sleepless Pattern


I was dead tired the other day from work so as soon as I got home I had to take a nap. It turned out to be a deep two and a bit hour nap from 6:45 pm to 9:10 pm. I had something I had to do that night so I ran out to make sure I got it done, there are some plans in the works for a long road trip with some guys and I forgot the appointment.

I got home around 10:45 pm thinking I had  a lot of time to go to sleep, I got some shawarmas to eat before sleeping. I thought I would fall asleep by 1:00 am or the latest 2:00 am and I would be fine. Then I looked up at the clock it was 2:30 am, then 3:10 am, I still didn’t sleep, so I watched some anime which took 24 minutes in total and tried sleeping again, then I looked up at the clock and it was 4:35 am.

I came to the realization that there is no way I am going to fall asleep at this point. I got up and started working on the randomest of things. I backed-up my movies, organized some files, checked some online bills, I ordered a few things from, and I watched a few shows. I knew that I had to charge into work to finish as much as possible so that I don’t run out of energy too early, and I manage to get a lot done. I was honestly surprised I was doing pretty good throughout the day and their were times I forgot that Iwas up for 36 hours but it got to me after a while and I started having that annoying headache. I managed to stay at work for about 9 hours before heading home, I got a lot done but their were times where I was a bit short with people because my fuse was short from lack of sleep, it was just that my answers were very blunt so I found that funny. Then going home and taking a 2 hour nap helped me get through the night to go to sleep early.
