Maybe it was the sleeping aid I took last night, maybe I just didn't get enough sleep, maybe it's just Monday, but I'm sure as hell dragging this morning. Must perk up. I think my schedule is reasonably okay today, with nothing all that strenuous going on, so it's not as if I need to be in a classroom or anything like that.
I admit it: it's truly sad that I really can't sleep all that well except for those times when I get some assistance from "chemical willy". I wish I was one of those people who could just go to bed, shut off all the stuff in my head, sleep soundly for eight hours and wake up refreshed. No, for me it's more like go to bed around 11:30pm-ish, fall asleep quickly, have a mind that just can't settle down very much, wake up after five and a half or six hours, and generally feel like I've run through the wringer for several hours. It's all in the head, I know that. I need to learn to shut down what's inside my head, which would probably go along way towards helping me get a good night's sleep.
I simply hate sleeping.
