How to sleep? I have no idea. You know when you’re really excited about something and you can’t sleep the night before? I haven’t slept since July.
I’ve had poor sleeping habits for a long time. Growing up, my parents were not strict about a bed time. I often stayed up late, got up early for school, napped in the afternoon, stayed up late, and so forth. This pattern has stuck. I’m a morning person. I wake up cheerful and energised and tend to get a lot done before noon. My energy starts to wane in the early afternoon and a siesta becomes most welcome. Oh, dear America, why didn’t we adopt siestas and clotted cream along with pizza and fried rice?
At night, it’s hard to turn my brain off sometimes. I’m running through the day examining how I could have done something differently or handled a situation better, going through mental notes and to-do lists, and planning the next day. Sometimes I end up getting back up and working on something for a few hours.
There’s a lot on my mind concerning my upcoming trip to Australia. It’s been challenging to plan for a trip when you don’t know how long you’ll be gone. There’s a lot on my to do list, many deadlines, and some really important questions to answer such as, “How many handbags do I need?” and “What’s the best way to pack a cauldron?”
More sleep is one of my New Year’s resolutions and I’m developing a foolproof plan. I’m having a hard time articulating it at this moment because I’m kind of sleepy. I’m gonna take a nap and get back to this later.
