I have been absolutely terrible about sleep recently. I have definitely bit off way more than I can chew… and I’m paying the price. (Note: if someone has any tips on how to say “No” better, please let me know.) If I get more than four hours of sleep, I consider it a good night. But… this has got to change.
Last week was beyond insane. I feel exhausted after a normal week, but last week was extra difficult, challenging, (fun), and I felt it. By Sunday, I was spontaneously crying. Every cell of my body was fighting to stay awake… I absolutely passed out on the bus back to NYC… for at least half of it, and spent the other half… working. Blah!
I will be reevaluating where I’m spending time and I will be trying to set better standards for when I have to go to sleep and when I have to wake up. I really like my current morning routine, so I think I’m going to really have to focus on trying to get to bed before midnight.
The only way I can really see this happening is by learning how to both say no and to ask for help. I will keep you posted on how that goes.
Meanwhile, I’m still trying to get my apartment in some sort of okay-design-wise shape. This is not one of my strengths, by any stretch of the imagination. One thing I definitely need to add is pillows, both in my bedroom and for my couch!
I figured pillows were relevant for a post about exhaustion:

All this pillow talk is making me want to go to bed!!!
