5 A.M.

Hello blog, it’s me, Lyrikh.
I’m still trying to decide which is the more preferable side of five in the morning to be on. Waking up to it of course, you say. But is it?
Waking up at five in the morning and knowing you have to, I’m sure is a pain. It means you have to go to bed that much earlier, (unless you think you’re superhuman), thus cutting into your social or relaxing at home time. People aren’t really awake at five in the morning, even if we were meant to be once upon a time. I do appreciate all the bakers and farmers and truck and bus drivers who make that sacrifice though.
I however usually find myself on the other side of five A.M. It would be one thing if I had a night job that kept me up until five, and all I need do on my return home was sleep, but I have no such job. I am just awake, without any rhyme or reason for it. If that sounds exciting to you, you should try it for a week and get back to me.
And of course, it’s not as if I just fall asleep afterward either. If I haven’t slept at all,, that usually is the point at which I am beyond frustrated. I think I should find productive things to do, but that would only encourage the behavior. And it’s at about that point when the rest of the house starts to wake up and I am finally sleepy. But of course since people know I don’t sleep, they choose this time to need my attention.
I really need to stop telling people that I don’t sleep.


Sleeping Pains

Is it possible to sleep wrong?
Actually yes I do know there are ways you are not supposed to sleep, but this still does not account for my problem. I have been sleeping about the same way, on the same bed for years now. The only thing that fluctuates is just how much sleep I get a night.
Ok, I am aware that too much sleep can be bad for a person, but who ever heard of over 6 hours being too much sleep? That’s just not normal!
you? normal?
Point taken, but still; how does that make sense?
So I have had bruised-feeling ribs since yesterday, and that was only after I fell asleep after lunch. I can’t think of what else I could have done wrong or weirdly.
In conclusion, sleep is evil — at least as far as my body is concerned.
And this . . . is why I will possibly die of sleep deprivation.

And If You Didn’t Already Think Something Was Wrong With Me

I am getting too much sleep.
Now of course, what you probably think is wrong with this statement is not what’s wrong. Sleep and I have never had the best of relationships. I used to joke that I would probably die of sleep deprivation, and people like to joke that I don’t sleep at all.
This is almost true, of course I have to sleep at some point, but unless my sleep cycle has been completely thrown I am usually asleep no later than 2 AM. And lest you think this is nothing and that I perhaps don’t have to get up for anything, I did this all through college and highsthool, when the earliest I had to get up was 6:30.
So back to my initial statement,I am getting too much sleep and my body hates me! How much sleep is too much sleep you ask? For me, about 8 hours.
Yes, that’s right. I am perfectly functional on 4 to 6 hours. Otherwise I am overtired, disoriented, and completely sore. Nice way for my body to treat me yeah?
So I have decided that it is too much sleep. But now, I have to figure out how to stay awake until about 4 AM. Not a problem normally, but If I can’t find anything to keep me occupied, I might just fall asleep.
Arg, We shall see.
