But I’m Just So Dang Tired…

Alright, so, I promise this school-related talk stuff is going to end soon…ish. But here’s the thing. I’m sitting here with all my classwork done, just anxiously waiting to hear back on grades. And I had made a promise to myself that once I finished my schoolwork, I would take a long nap.

However…things have not worked out in my favor on this so far. I’ve been done with classwork for the past 3 days now, and not one single nap has happened. In fact, I’ve actually found myself also staying up later than usual, and getting terrible sleep, meaning I’m farther away from the rested feeling I wanted than I was three days ago.

I actually was going to take today off from work, but couldn’t because my counterpart on the job had taken it off, and one of us has to be here. However, that was also going to work in my favor for a nap, because if he’s gone, no one generally bugs me, so the idea of an extended lunch break/nap was calling me. Until everything broke at work and now he’s not actually taking today off.

I’m not saying this for any form of compassion. It’s a ridiculous thing for me to even complain about. And I really don’t mean to complain at all. But, the thing is, I’m so tired right now that all I can think about is napping, which means that when I sat down to try to do some writing, no matter what I started writing, it just came out about naps.

So, yeah, I’m exhausted. And I’m going to find a way to nap. And it will end up not being enough. Especially since I have a friend coming to town this weekend, which will certainly mean I’ll be up too late and will need to find another way to get myself a nap.

Nap.

Nap nap nap nap.

My brain is a skipping record at this point.

So, if you talk to me, and I get any words out that aren’t nap, just know, that’s by accident. Because a nap sounds so dang good right now.
