On Friday evening I was feeling a bit tired. That’s not an unusual feeling for me at the end of the week. What was out of the ordinary was the time that I went to bed. Even though I probably could have stayed awake, I decided to crawl into bed at 11pm. It didn’t take long for me to fall asleep. I can’t remember the last time I actually slept before midnight.
I woke up around 5am. It was an odd feeling waking up at 5am since I usually go to bed at 3 or 4am on the weekends. My body was probably confused. I got up and boiled up some water and made myself a nice drink. I wasn’t wide awake yet I wasn’t feeling all that sleepy either. I decided to play a few games on my tablet in bed. An hour and a half went by quickly. In that time, the sky went from dark to light as the sun rose. I started to get sleepy again so just to make sure, I popped a couple of melatonin pills.
It was about 8am at this point and back to sleep I went. The next thing I knew the sun was bright and shining outside. It was 1pm. I felt really thirsty. I decided it was probably a good time to get up for real for the day. I’d slept for about thirteen hours in total. I felt quite refreshed on Saturday.
Perhaps I’ll to go to bed earlier once in a while.
