You know what is important to make my day normal? What is it that will keep me from going insane? What is it that will keep me from being jumpy and from biting people’s heads off?
Something very simple.
A good, undisturbed, sound sleep of 8 hours, each day. Nothing more, nothing less. My sleep matters a lot to me – it’s like meditation for me. I have my quota of sleep and I’m good to go. Deprive me of my sleep and you’ll have a maniac on the run. People say it’s all in the head, but trust me, I can stay without food/water/music/fun – but not sleep. The days when I hit the sack late and wake up early, I’m horrible. I become more nitpicky than I already am, and it’s certainly not good for the people around me. I exhaust everyone around with my temper, and look ready to faint every next second. And I’ll keep looking for opportunities to snatch a nap, even if it’s going to be for an extremely short while. But that’s me. Keep me away from my sleep and you become my enemy for life. Erm, just kidding, but I’m certainly not someone to sacrifice my sleep for anything/anyone – and trust me, my not having to give up on my sleep does so much good to the world and the people living in it 😉
Sound Sleep = Peace + Tranquility + Assured dose of sanity
