Time Off

Last week I said I wasn’t going to be posting anything for about half of last week. So what was I doing instead? Uh….I’ll be honest, I slept. A lot. Like I would come home from work, go straight to bed and then sleep until I went to work the next day. It was something like 14 hours of sleep a day. Is that excessive? Oh yeah, but let me tell you it was just splendid. I guess sleeping isn’t the only thing I did though, by Saturday I had adequately caught up on my sleep, so I went and…

Rough Night

There is something I don’t get that I really feel like I should’ve figured out by now. How do people just go to sleep? Look I know I’ve written a bunch on this before but when you’re having one of those nights where you can’t seem to sleep at all sometimes you just need to vent it out. Honestly, I don’t get how people just pick a time, get ready for bed, lay down and then they’re just gone. For me every time I lie down my mind decides that now is the time to put the pedal to the…

My Melatonin Story.

I very rarely get sick, maybe once a year tops, but when I do I become completely useless as a human being until I get over it. This really isn’t that bad since it usually never takes more than 24 hours for me to get back to being “healthy.” Healthy is actually a pretty bad word to use there since that word can never really apply to me in a serious sense. Functional works better. So it takes 24 hours for me to return to being functional. Usually. Why am I telling you about this? Because last week I came down with…

The Worst Way to Go to Bed.

I hate nights like tonight, it’s really late, I’m tired and all I want to do is lay down in my bed and sleep. That doesn’t happen though, despite my efforts otherwise. I do all my normal things to get ready to bed, then I lay down, find a comfortable position and close my eyes. Several minutes later it happens, I roll over trying to find a more comfortable position, this includes switching from a left to the right bud in my headphones so I can still hear my Sleeping playlist on Spotify. Few minutes later though and I’m rolling…

My Life Without Caffeine, the Ultimate Struggle.

It’s been something like 3 weeks since I decided to cut caffeine out of my diet and if I’m being totally honest, it’s gone much better than I expected it to. When I first stopped drinking caffeinated beverages I assumed in total honesty that I would be just plain exhausted all the time. I’ve only been kind of tired all the time so that’s pretty good right? Really I’m not even that tired anymore since I’ve had a couple of weeks to actually allow my sleep schedule to compensate for the lack of caffeine in my system. Basically I mean…
