I don’t get it. For some reason my body seems pissed with my brain and has decided to avoid sleep, unless it is convenient for it.
Here’s what I mean:
I feel tired to the point of my chin hitting my chest while trying to read. This is convenient since it’s 10:00 PM. So, I go to bed and feel my cool pillow against my cheek. In minutes I am fast asleep with no worries until my 6 am alarm.
Only my body for some reason decides it really wants to be up around, oh… 2, or 3 am. Without fail these days.
So I wake. I curse. I close my eyes again and try to rummage my pillows to find a hidden cool spot. I then toss and turn for an hour before giving up.
But what now? It’s only 2:30 am. I decide to browse the web for 30 minutes, then close my eyes again for my toss and turn ballet.
As usually I give up after less than an hour. Last night I decided to get up and do a really good job flossing my teeth with this weird braided floss I forgot I had. Then, brain tired, body not, I decided to read a few more chapters.
It was 4:20 when I put my book down, knowing my 6 am alarm was coming quick. And of course I was fast asleep, enjoying a particularly vivid dream when my alarm went off. I got up, my mind feeling hung over; like it was packed with glue.
My body, though, felt great. I went to the gym and then to work, then came home and cooked and read for a bit. Yep, body felt great, but my mind has been feeling tired.
I plopped it here in MPSIMS since it really is mundane, in that there’s no physical or mental issue behind it all.
Anyone else up late at night, unable to sleep, I’ll want to read your post in about 4 hours.
