No sleep on Friday night due to the LAN, a decent night's sleep on Saturday night, but then no sleep again on Sunday night (well, like 20 minutes), 3 hours Monday night and 4 hours last night. If it weren't for the naps at lunch while at work, I don't know that I'd make it home each day. This extreme sleping pattern I'm beginning to adopt is very unlike me. Sure, I'd love to stay up until 5 AM every night, that feels natural to me, but not when I need to be at work at 7:30 AM :/
I can see/feel how the lack of sleep is affecting my reaction times, my judgement, my ability to think clearly or even to just speak clearly at times. It reminds me once again why I refuse to let a drop of alcohol enter my body. My mind is me, it is my sanctuary. Without it, I am nothing. I need to start being just a little bit more responsible.
Keep in mind this doesn't mean I look down on others who do drink, several of my closest friends are quite the alcohol consumers. In fact, while going to a race at Homestead, 3 friends drank 92 beers between them in one afternoon. And I guess there's nothing wrong with that; I try my hardest not to judge people. But why? Why drink any alcohol at all?
I have a lot to say on this subject, including maybe a few conversations to quote, but I'm having a coronary here from all the stress at work today. I may be here all night.
