Mini-Failure – Day 2, aka Doomsday

Last night, I got a phone call from an old friend and ended up chatting until 11:30pm. It messed up my night schedule, but it was good to catch up so I’m not complaining.

In bed, I usually read a novel to clear my head before falling to sleep. I heard that if you don’t fall asleep within five minutes of your head hitting the pillow then you’re not sufficiently relaxed and/or tired to sleep. Currently, I’m reading Dostoevsky’s House of the Dead

. My goal is to eventually read all of Dostoevsky’s novels.

So, anyway, I don’t know what time I actually went to sleep, but my guess is around 1:30am.

My alarm went blazing at 7:15am. My body was worn out; debt with the sleep bank is pilling up. I kept falling in and out of consciousness until finally 7:50am.

Tonight, my graduate seminar runs very late, and I won’t get back home until 11pm. I’m a little worried that I’m not getting sufficient sleep, and I was planning on hitting the gym today. Is it cheating to take a long nap?

Oh well, off to brew some tea.
