Well I didn’t wake up beautiful this morning because I have yet to fall asleep. Yes, I’ve been awake all night. I tossed and turned thinking about projects at work and then I got a brilliant idea and I tossed and turned thinking about how to execute it. After that I tossed and turned thinking about all the personal projects I have.
I can tell fall is here. I’m sorry to those of you who adore summer, but I’m always glad when summer is over. I loved summer as a kid, but once I started working — it just wasn’t the same. When I was in high school I use to stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning working in one of my many journals and then sleep until noon, get up and go hangout with my friends. What a life.
As much as I am dreading trying to get through part of the day on no sleep, I’m excited because this means my creative juices are starting to flow again. In summer I just can’t seem to get pumped up about anything but for some reason fall just gets me going. I guess it goes back to the fact that everything seems to stop in the summer (except work) and come fall it’s almost like another “new year’s day.” The slate is clean and we start all over again.
So at 4:15 I finally just got up. There is really no point in sleeping for 2 or 3 hours, in fact that will only make it worse. I figure I’ll go into work early … around 6 … and then I can go home early … around 2. Luckily I don’t operate any heavy machinery — or do I? I’m so tired I can’t remember. I guess I’ll put on a hard hat just in case.
Wish me luck staying awake. I’ll need it. And if you think this is going to make my day confusing, poor Freckles has no idea what the heck is going on.
