Blogging Cures Sleep Deprivation

January 9 - 2:34 AM
Today is January 9, and it's 2:34 AM. That's right, 2:34 AM. For the past four and a half hours I've been under the covers, desperately trying to fall asleep. But I can't. Better yet, I'll have to start getting ready for school in a few hours. So, in an attempt to (finally) fall asleep, I'm writing this post to flush out my thoughts and relax myself.

Right now, I'm especially worried about the possibility of an AP Chemistry test on Tuesday, which is the second day back from school. Returning to that Christmas break homework assignment I addressed in my last post, because the assignment covered an entire chapter from the textbook, my friends and I are thoroughly convinced that the test on the chapter will be on Tuesday.

On top of that: I'm really hot right now. Blazing. My fan is on, but is that helping? No, of course not.

Also, I'm hungry. And thirsty. So if someone could just bring me a platter of steaming bacon and a huge glass of water that would be great.

And yes, I know all of these problems are insignificant and trivial issues, but I was hoping that this brief bout of blogging would aid me in sleeping, some kind of personal cure for sleep deprivation. Until then, I'm going to try and go back to sleep. (If I can.)

January 9 - 10:34 PM
Today is (unfortunately) still January 9, and it's 10:34 PM. Good news. I'm about to go sleep. Also good news, I think I'm going to be able to fall asleep without having to stay awake for four and half hours.

Now my day at school was rough. It was long, and seemingly never-ending. It was a struggle during all seven consecutive class periods to stay awake and not fall asleep. (Trust me, it was very tempting at times.) Fortunately, whenever I was feeling especially drowsy, I'd suck on a mint and become momentarily awake. (Though I should mention that because I ate so many mints, I'll probably skip brushing my teeth tonight. I can still taste mint.)

And that AP Chemistry test I was worrying about for four and a half hours? Turns out I'll be tested on that chapter on Thursday. Which is another two or three days away. So until then, I'll be (trying) to rest soundly. (Because we both know that come Wednesday, I'll be repeating last night all over again.)

Normally I would spend another half hour or so creating some stylized blog picture, but for now, I just need some rest. So I apologize for the lack of imagery, but certainly not for my lack of sleep.
