After many weeks of trying, I’ve been able to break the 4am barrier. Yes, that’s right, even though I’ve been a night owl for nearly all my life, it took almost four weeks of unemployment for me to be able to stay up beyond 4am. I’m not sure what was going on. In the first two weeks or so, I felt exhausted as 2am rolled around, even though I didn’t do much the whole day. My sleeping habits didn’t really change with my employment status.
This weekend, I finally was able to comfortably stay up beyond 4am. It’s a silly milestone but it tells me that things are going back to normal! Sunrises have never been so pretty!
