But with that gone...I'm just turning the tv (actually my phone) off. Watching Youtube videos. Then drifting off to Dreamland well before midnight.
Tonight: 9.00. Then I wake up at 7.15. It will be sweet. Wake up fully rested.
I force myself not to check the time when I wake up. Don't check the time, just stay in bed until the alarm goes off. Then I listen to my breathing. It's the heavy breathing that one gets when one sleeps but I'm sort of awake because I'm clearly hearing it and thinking about it. It's a delicious semi-sleep state. One foot in harsh reality, the other in blissful unconsciousness.
And as for naps: I have it down to 30 minutes. I used to sleep for an hour or two during the day. But now, I'll be asleep at 12.30 and awake at 1.00. Fully rested. Couldn't even sleep more if I wanted to. Then I think, "Man, it's only 1.00. I have so much time to do all my shit." Then I do all my shit.
Today wasn't a good day for naps, though. I actually didn't have work until 2.00 but I didn't realise that until I was on my way to work. I got it in an email detailing what the job is but I didn't read the email carefully. So I got there at 9.30. Then just had to wait.
Then the case lasted until 5.15. Usually, they end around 4.00. So the court was locked and everyone went home. Took a while to find somebody to unlock the door and let me out.
Took a while to come home. I was only like a 30 minutes train journey away but the train only arrives at that station every 15 minutes or so. And it was cold.
Finally got home. Was dark out. Didn't take a nap. I wasted all of that time when I didn't have to actually be there until 2.00. Walked around that little village looking for stuff to do. There's a little shopping mall but only
pound shops and shit like this.
So now, I begin my epic 10 hour sleep. Maybe take a crap in the morning. I like to wake up early enough to be able to take a leisurely crap, if required.
