workolepsy

I swear that I have work-induced narcolepsy. I could spend all afternoon browsing web pages or chatting online, or playing a game such as Civilization, and I may feel tired but I'd still have no trouble staying awake. As soon as I try to concentrate on this very long paper that I'm supposed to finish editing today, though, bam! I'm full of yawns, I try to focus, next thing I realize is that my eyes are closed, I'm off in some half-dream about something else, and I've been startled into that realization because I've started to lightly snore. Sure, I threw off my sleep schedule again over the weekend, and sure, I haven't necessarily had enough sleep over the past couple days as a result, but still there's a very clear correlation between trying to work and having to fight off sleepiness, versus not working and not having that problem. I just don't understand it.

Before I started to write this entry, just as I snapped out of my drowsiness again, the KEXP dj announced the song he'd just played was "Workers, Wake Up!" by Peel. Nice.

another reason
to learn to love coffee... soda just doesn't cut it... a nice pot of coffee (or 2) thats the ticket. coffee shots even. then hit it with baileys when you finish the project.
