Day 16 of 30 of Writing Challenge
The goal is to write for 30 days straight and I have failed in this quest by one day. I’m disappointed in myself. Let me make my best excuse for missing one day.
This whole week I’ve been getting about 5-6 hours of sleep a night. While other people might be able to operate with that amount of sleep I can’t as after a few days it catches up to me. It caught up yesterday with me. I normally have been going to bed at 5 or 6 in the morning, but yesterday I fell asleep around midnight…only to wake up around 4 am to take Sandy to the airport. I thought after taking her to the airport I would just go back to sleep, but I ended up working on a blog post for ELM. Next thing I knew it was sunny outside so I decided just to stay awake and save up the tiredness for tonight.
I manage to stay awake until 10PM. Though I had to rely on caffeine in the form of yerba mate. It helped, but around 10PM I passed out only to wake up a little bit ago. That’s when I realized I had missed one day of writing and out of guilt forced myself to write this.
I’m going to go to sleep now and wake up early. See if I can become a new man. In the hopes of redeeming myself…
