God I'm Tired

As I sit here, as uncomfortable as the day God made me, I reflect on how I found myself in this position. I think I got about eight hours sleep in all over the weekend. I had trouble sleeping on Saturday night due to being woken up in the middle of the night, and then woken up again by my brother-in-law and his son. It didn't help that all of the scattered dreams I had that night were bad. So I entered Sunday feeling worse than I usually do. That's when things really went south.
I don't know about the American south but the south of my life certainly enjoys rising again
See I do a lot of work on Sundays. I volunteer, I co-host a 2-hour long podcast and I still have my regular freelancing work. Sunday really is my busiest day and it can see me working for up to 10 hours. So I need to be energised. So what do I do? I drink too much caffeine and sugar. I also make the crucial mistake of drinking an energising smoothie after 5PM. If there is one thing you should take away from this post it's this; don't do that.

Never drink anything that contains the words "caffeine", "energy", or "over half of your RDA of sugar" after 5PM. Heck regular people shouldn't do that after 3PM. I went to bed around 3AM, as I usually do, and I was still awake at around 5AM. I don't know when I actually fell asleep. I just know I woke up around an hour ago.

In terms of good news PC World is already running their sales. I found a pretty cool laptop at less than I thought but I'm still going to wait until Friday actually rolls around to pick it up. That way I can take the weekend of work and get everything set up, take a break, and maybe catch up on some sleep.

I need to sleep well tonight. I got a driving lesson tomorrow.


  1. I hope you get a new laptop at a decent price mate, I know you've wanted one for quite some time. I'm going to have to take that no caffeine after five thing for advice because I've fallen afoul of it so many times now. Good luck with the driving lesson as well tomorrow

  2. you need a good laptop with the work you do!

  3. Oh caffeine, never fails to destroy that which it pretend to give.

  4. Caffeine doesn't affect me. I can drink a redbull (other energy drinks are available) and still sleep. On the bad side if I need to stay awake I'm screwed.

  5. I am often exhausted and super tired at the end of the day which is why I am in bed early, I don't drink energy drinks or coffee though

  6. Man, I know that feel. Hang in there. Not sure if you're familiar with this particular meme, but I'm just going to leave this here.

    This coffee is gonna help me be more productive
