Tonight is a night of gluttony. White Zinfandel is in the glass, ANTM is streaming on Hulu, and Nutella is waiting to be devoured. I’m exhausted and with this upcoming exam (and not-so-pleasant work week), I feel it’s necessary for me to take the night off. I studied a lot yesterday and some today, but my brain is mush. And I blame daylights savings.
Firstly, it sounds like a bank. It essentially is, since it robs you of an hour once a year. I depend on that hour and clearly struggle adjusting to this. Additionally, the last three Marches I have spent in Korea where we don’t partake in this sadistic ritual. So I think, without this habit, suddenly losing an hour of my sleep has thrown a real monkey wrench into my daily functioning. I can’t seem to fall asleep before midnight, which is just crushing my performance. End rant.
As a full time teacher in America, I knew that there would be multiple challenges, but the ones I’m currently facing feel from way out in left field (especially this sleep issue). So, I am hoping that with a good night’s rest, I’ll be ready and rejuvenated for tomorrow. But mad props to all you teachers out there that have mastered a normal, functioning sleep pattern.
