Ahhhhhhh. There’s nothing quite like that warm, contented feeling of waking up before your alarm clock goes off.
Sleep and I have been enemies for a long time. I don’t like sleep; I feel like it robs me of productive hours when I could be getting things done. Some of these negative feelings come as a result of my unfortunate tendency to overload myself with projects to do, but the rest is an entrenched opinion.
It’s something I’ve been working on lately. When it’s time for bed, I try to repeat to myself “Sleep is my friend, sleep is my friend.” Oddly enough, it’s working; increasingly, I want to go to bed. And just the other night, I broke off a conversation with Saalon just so I could get to bed. Today I woke up before my alarm went off, so maybe I’m improving.
