being tired is lame; getting sick is unacceptable

Someone has trouble with limitation.  Wanna guess who?

During lunch with a friend today, we were discussing the educational benefits that our employer offers, and how awesome it is that you can now take no-credit courses.  He’s all, “I love to learn!”  And I’m all, “This sounds like one more way for me to over-commit!”  Because every fall (and birthday, and New Year, and spring), I try to take on one more job, seven more hobbies, and three thousand more friends, only to discover a few months later that my life was already sufficiently full.  Eventually, I cut back, but my immediate response is to come up with magical ways (exercise, prayer) that I can discover untapped reserves of strength which will allow me to cut my sleep time in half and double my productivity.

Yesterday, I was exhausted.  I slept for twelve (blissful) hours, and was back in bed by 9:30 or so.  The early bedtime was partially so I could start waking up early to go to the gym, but mostly because I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.

even my dreams are colorful

I’m reading Fellowship of The Ring again, and it’s fun to put away the book and go to sleep every time the hobbits do.
