Day 028: I’d Rather Be Asleep [Friday Thought W/ TeeCoZee]

Good Moleman. Beep Beep! Out of my way! I’m a motorist! I didn’t know you could do that. It’s Friday, October 16, Twenty Twenty Two Minus Two. The weather in Colonie is 51° & Pantone 9400 C and somewhere, somebody is sleeping in their comfy, comfy bed. Welp. Goodnight.

But first, I have a thing on my mind.

I really don’t dig sleeping that much. I have a very love-meh relationship with it. If I was to make a list of my favorite activities, it might not even crack the top ten. It’s like somewhere in between eating sandwiches and cleaning my ears. But sleep is the one activity that I vie to do when I miss it. Because I’m so far away from my bed, all I want to do is be in said bed. But that affection is misplaced. If I was offered a bed right now, I don’t think I would even sleep much. The novelty would wear off after a few minutes. I’d probably sleep for an hour and then scroll Twitter until I decide that I didn’t actually want to be in bed in the first place. I just feel like I should be in bed, because that’s what’s appropriate at the crack of dawn. I’m just pulling myself away from a routine that I didn’t care much about in the first place. So I guess it’s not sleep that I miss, it’s the routine that involves sleep. And I do love me a good routine. I would change the title to, “I’d Rather Keep My Routine”, but I’m too tired to do so. I guess I’ll just leave it at that.

Try this trick over the weekend: get some sleep. You probably need it. If not for you, but for the sake of routine.

Have a rested weekend, everyone!
