For the past few days, I've been getting up at 5:30, even though I've not gone to bed until about 1:30 in the morning. I'm not the type of person that functions well on 4 hours of sleep, but this week I've felt great. My only guess is that things have been so slow at work that my mind goes a million miles an hour when I get home. This week I haven't even been tired until after midnight. (If I'm not tired, I won't even try to go to sleep.) I've been using the time to keep on housework, as for some reason, I haven't felt like crafting (which is a shame - as Dash was coming along nicely and so was Pokette). I'm also not behind in class and we're more than halfway through and that is extremely rare. I'm not sure what's going on lately, I just hope I don't have a major crash from it.
I used to be night owl - in high school and freshman and sophomore years of college. Then I got the flu really bad one year, missed several days of school and lost my ability for a while to stay up past 9:30. Over the past six years, I've slowly regained the ability to stay up and in the past year have pulled many late nights doing school work and also several all-nighters. But the all-nighters and late nights have caught up to me and I'll crash really badly about a day after I get a normal night of sleep. This week is really the first time in a long time that I've felt good after consistently getting little sleep.
