I got three hours of sleep last night. I tried going to bed at 10:30 like I normally do; I ended up lying in bed for two miserable hours. I got up and went to the common room to see if more activity might make me tired. It did not. I talked to my friends, wandered around, listened to music–nothing made me tired. I didn’t get to bed until 2:30 and needed to be up at 5:45.

I have not felt less tired all trip than I did today. I wish I understood why. On days I get 6-8 hours of sleep, I normally shut down around 2 or 3 PM. Today, I didn’t get tired at any point in the day. I was as alert at 6 AM as I was at 12 PM, 5 PM, or right now.

Perhaps I needed a recharge day, or the opposite of a recharge day? Maybe I’ll be super tired by the time I’m supposed to sleep tonight. I don’t work until 2 tomorrow, so I can stay up till I’m tired, and maybe I’ll be able to sleep until I wake up naturally, instead of waking up to an alarm. Maybe that will get me back on track.

I set up my website today. It still needs improvement, but it’s a start. I’ll probably have Lucy design some graphics for me. We shall see.
