Like many of you, I don’t get the required amount of sleep that I need during the week. As such, it’s left to weekends for me to catch up on my sleep debt. Despite being quite tired on Friday night, I managed to stay up until 4am before going to bed. I woke up around 11am the next morning. I was slightly disappointed that I didn’t even get eight hours of sleep but I was prepared to drag myself out of my bed and begin the day. Before I did that though, I grabbed my phone and began surfing the Internet over my wi-fi connection.
Between Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and the plain old, regular world wide web, an hour had passed and I was still in bed. I remember putting the phone down for a second and then closing my eyes. The next thing I knew, I was awake again and realized that I had fallen sleep once more. Grabbing my phone, I turned it on to find that it was just after 4pm. Whoa. I hadn’t slept in this late for a long, long time. The last time I remember waking up at 4pm was when I had come back from Las Vegas for the first time in 1999. It wasn’t even a fun trip as I went there on business of sorts to help a friend with a potential start-up company. We were at COMDEX, a large computer trade show that no longer exists. Anyways, we did lots of walking and standing on our feet, so I was exhausted by the end of the trip. The first night back I slept so soundly that I did not wake up until well after 4pm.
I sure wasted most of Saturday sleeping but I felt awesome after waking up.
