Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

Great Googlie Mooglie, why can't I just sleep in?

Sleep and I have had a difficult relationship for years- bouts of insomnia that would last for months, leaving me a withered thing that shuffled through my days cringing away from a too-loud, too-bright blur of a world. In recent years, that insomnia has trailed off and become a rare occurrence, but what has taken its place is this freaky 'no matter what time I go to bed I will wake up at an hour no farmer would sneer at even if I have no reason to be conscious' state.

It's seven in the morning. I've been up for an hour. Today I have nothing to do and nowhere to be before 12:30, and I worked a 12 hour day yesterday.

Well, they say as you get older you need less sleep...

They proved it in a lab. Less sleep and less food increases your lifespan.

Sounds like you're just a morning person. Embrace the dawn!

Yes, I hear Isabella re the less sleep increases lifespan.

By the way, diffuse therapeutic Lavendar essential oil might do the trick for you to cure that insomnia and lots of exercise and meditation...;)

Woke up at 5:46 am this morning. Why?! *shakes fist at (dark) sky*

I envy you. Wish I could sleep less and do more. :)

Just because I sleep less doesn't mean I do more :)
