sleep sleep perchance to dream - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming
sleep sleep perchance to dream
Getting up at 5:20 am does not get any easier. I feel the pull of the dreams I didn't have because I needed to sleep four more hours... stagger to initiate the morning routine, slightly altered today which has its risks -I can't think straight early in the morning so have to prepare things I'll need beforehand and give myself a regular routine for those three days a week I have to wake up early. What did I dream? I thought I would remember, it was so vivid and powerful and now it's all gone, I only have that vague feeling of it having been vivid and powerful. Toothbrush, coffee. Ah, another variant today: burnt the toast. To cinders, I left the flat worried that the smoke alarm might set off after I left. I find the world strange this early. The world is, supposedly, mostly made of nothing, of empty space between tiny things electrically charged. It feels that way today.

Hn, It takes me at least a couple of hours to wind down and be able to sleep. My last lesson on Monday night finishes around 9:00 pm. Then I have to have some dinner, generally, prepare things for the teaching day the day after, etc. Just my teeth brushing, etc routine currently takes around 15 min (due to my disregard for those things in earlier life, thinking that dragging a toothbrush across my teeth for 10 sec was brushing my teeth). So, there is no real chance to be asleep before a bit at least after midnight. There often is a function at the Forum across the road which also limits the times at which I may finally be able to fall asleep. Of course there are easy solutions to all these things, like becoming rich so I don't have to take pupils at the times that are convenient for them instead of for me, etc. In which case I wouldn't have to get up early, in any event. To that effect, I should perhaps start to play lotteries, etc to increase my chances of those things happening from zero to just as-near-zero-as-makes-no-difference...

How about excercise? I know it's boring as pants but when I used to work out regular basis I'd to the gymn in the evening. If I still felt frisky I'd stop off at a bar for a pint and my biggest problem seemed to be staying awake before I got home. I must say though I did have training/drinking partners which made the routine much easier to bear :\
