Wake Up, Sleepyhead
by stacy <email@example.com>
I used to make fun of people who went to bed early. Now I find myself wanting to go to bed rather early as well. It's a new sensation for me. I'm definitely a night person. I believe in staying up late and waking up late. At least, I did in the past, but now I'm not quite sure what I am. I want to stay up late, but my eyes will not oblige me by staying open. I want to sleep late, but my eyes won't stay closed. They see the light coming through the closed blinds in the bedroom and demand that I get up and do something.
It has gotten worse in the past week. Granted I've been a little busy running errands and getting settled (I moved over the weekend). I spent this morning cleaning my junk out of the spare bedroom of my new place, in fact. I had a stomach bug also a few days ago, so maybe it's no wonder I've been exhausted at 10pm.
However, I suspect the climate has something to do with it. I'm now living in a warmer area than before and the sun seems to beat down that much stronger. A short walk outside is a chore, especially when the humidity is high. Does this increase general fatigue? I don't know, but it's a good theory.
I'm tired of being tired. Now excuse me, I think a nap is in order.
