Unlike most people I have nothing that resembles a regular sleep schedule. It happens when it happens and doesn’t sometimes when I want it to. Regardless, my superior intellect allows me to ponder (and sometimes solve) some of the most pressing issues of our time. Hmm…well that’s true if choosing between downloading a movie or a new album. Life or death decisions like that are very important. Here are a few more things I think about as I am slipping off into dreamland.
- “Did I close my computer?” – I sleep with it in my bed, and often fall asleep with it open. It basically contains my entire life on it so I make sure it’s closed in case it falls off of the bed. How many times have I slept with it open? dozens. how many times has it actually fallen off of the bed? None to date, but paranoia is a gift of mine.
- “What do I want to listen to?” – My iPod is a staple of my sleep routine especially when sleeping in unfamiliar environments. Being able to put myself in a positive mood makes me much more relaxed as I enter my sweet slumber state.
- “Did I accomplish everything I wanted today?” – The answer to this question in inevitably no (especially recently when updating this blog was on the list) but that never stops me from evaluating the day’s process. Sometimes I knock off more on my to do list than others, but assessing them at the end of the day allows me to acknowledge my wins no matter how small.
- “What do I need to do tomorrow?” – As hard as it may be to believe, I don’t keep a daily to do list. What I do is think about the things that I need to remember the next day and just think about it over and over again telling myself to not forget about it. Of course writing it down on a piece of paper would be loads easier, but my life isn’t about easy. I try to make things as difficult as possible because I need things to challenge my awesometicity.
- “Is my nose going to bleed on that.” – Mostly a recent thought in the past few months since I have begun to have nosebleeds on a regular basis. they have been triggered by my hemmoraging of weight like a hemophiliac hemmorages blood. Waking up with a runny nose that turns out to be a bloody nose is far from my ideal morning, yet it happens.
