Tried desperately to avoid going to sleep this morning. I have so much to do and not nearly enough time to do it this week. My own fault for procrastinating on some of the tasks. At some point, I drank a 5-hour Energy in order to try to stay awake long enough to at least finish some of what I had to do. It would have worked nicely except that Iwas so beyond tired when I drank it that what I ended up with is a semi-alert brain but eyes that just couldn’t focus properly on anything, which is a little pointless.
Finally gave in and was going to go to bed at about 9:30am but my parents called (they never call at that time of day — I’m not sure why they did today). Then other calls came in, and it ended up being about noon-ish before I finally tried to go to sleep. The phone kept ringing every half hour or less (telemarketers can be so persistent). I can’t turn it off because I’m job hunting — I need to get calls about potential jobs without delay because, in the world of contract work, timing is everything. I finally got up at about 3:30pm for a call I actually had to take. And now I’m so tired I feel nauseous.
I really need to work harder on maintaining a regular sleep schedule. This is going to kill me.
