Sleep Deprived

So, it’s been a while.  Sorry about that.  Although saying I’m sorry almost seems presumptuous.  Like I assume people are checking my blog daily and lamenting the lack of new posts.  I am so not that cocky…

Anyway comma I thought I’d write about my past couple of nights.  I believe some sorts of shenanigans are afoot.  Both nights I have glanced at the clock and seen that it is far later than I anticipated.  When it happened this weekend, it was not such a big deal.  But when I looked up from reading my book last night to see it was almost two in the morning I got a little concerned.

My alarm was set to go off at 5:47a.m. (Because I wanted to get to work early because I’m poor and need the hours).  And suddenly, I realize I need to be awake again in less than 4 hours.  

Now if you know me, you likely know that I used to pull this kind of crap all the time.  I never slept at night.  But now that I am a more functional adult member of society it is no longer prudent of me to sleep until 10 or 11 in the morning.  I get up early (usually).  I go to work.  I try really really hard to go to my early classes (although I miss them more than is desirable) but still!  I can’t run on so little sleep.

And then, as if my lack of sleep was not enough to contend with, it dawns on me that my contact solution needs at least six hours to stop being peroxide-y.  And so, for the second time in my life I intentionally went to sleep with my contacts in.

Now today I am a little riddled with guilt.  I feel like my eye doctor knows.  He totally knows. 

Final note, my sincere apologies if this is not funny, I am quite sleep deprived today.
