I’m Having a Bit of a Sleeping Problem

It’s not that I have narcolepsy, insomnia, sleep apnea, or anything like that…

My problem is that I don’t like going to sleep… and then when I do sleep, I don’t like to wake up.


Because of this, I’ve probably been averaging about 4-5 hours of sleep per night for the past couple of months. Actually, this has probably been going on for the past year or so.

It sucks during the week because I have to get up at a reasonable time for work. On the other hand, if it wasn’t for that, I would probably be functioning on the weirdest hours…

I do get about 8-9 hours of sleep per day on some weekends, to catch up.

I feel like I function best when I consistently get 6-7 hours of sleep.

I just hate going to sleep because I always have something to do. It’s not that I have to do it, but I want to do it… and I like doing it.

I feel like I have so much to learn and so much more stuff I could do. Especially with the internet and the expanse of information freely available.

If I’m not on the internet, then it’s TV. I love TV. TV is a great source of entertainment for me. I like all kinds of TV and there is no method to my madness. Drama, reality, comedy, history, documentary, infomercials… you name it. If it grabs my attention, I’ll watch it.

I can live for a long time and be very happy if all I had was cable TV and broadband internet… and food.

But I need to sleep.
