Sorry for the lack of blogs last week. There was just no time at all for me to even open up this site let alone write something.
I still haven’t been able to figure out just WHY last week required so many late nights, I mean, it’s not like I had an inordinate amount of homework to do, but for some reason it did.
A quick recap:
Monday: Class, work, class, etc. Had a lot to work on to get the Slope Day 2007 website geared up for the big announcement later in the week. Also had a lot of issues going on in RYLA land and had to deal with them. Up until about 3:30. Awake at 8. 4.5 hours of sleep.
Tuesday: Tuesday night was juuussstt lovely. I had my weekly problem set due for Linear Algebra, so that took a few hours, followed by more Slope Day site stuff and working on the individual portion of my HCI project that was due on Thurs. This was all AFTER I had an ISSA meeting followed by proctoring a prelim for nearly 4 hours. I was pretty dead after the prelim and was falling alseep, but I had to get my HCI project done. I ended up going to be at 6:15AM. Up at 8. Just under 2 hours of sleep.
Wednesday: Wednesday is my day for photo @ the Sun. I also have my class council meeting. That was all before 7:30. At 7:30 I had to meet with my HCI group so we could do our project for the next day. We were in one of the engineering classrooms working on it until about 1AM. I went back to my room to finish it and ended up going to sleep at 5:35AM. I also didn’t have time to eat anything all day, so I ate for the first time since the day before at around 1:30AM (that was nearly 24 hours without food…no CLUE how I managed that). Up at 7:30 to put some finishing touches on the project and print it all out. 2 hours of sleep.
Thursday: Handed in my HCI project. Went to work. Practically fell asleep about 6 times, kept dropping my pen as I was writing because my hand wouldn’t cooperate. When it was over I went directly home. Did not pass go. Did not collect $200. My intent was to take a LOONNNNNNNNNNG nap, possibly until Friday morning, but one of my friends decided to come over to my room to chat for over an hour (thanks Phil). I managed to get a 40 min nap in before dinner. After dinner I’m not quite sure where the time went, but I somehow managed not to be able to take that nap I’d been dreaming about for a few days. I finally got to sleep at around midnight or 1AM and convinced myself the next day was Saturday. I slept straight through all of my classes (sans about 6 text messages and 3 phonecalls).
For those of you keeping track, that was 12 hours and 10 min of sleep in a 112 hour period. I was strangely energetic, and still am. (I haven’t quite caught up yet). My poor sleep schdule is SOOO messed up right now though. (Note that it’s 2:30AM and I’m still up. I have to be awake at 6:30AM for CoursEnroll tomorrow). It wasn’t all that bad in the beginning, but by the time Thurs. afternoon rolled around, if it weren’t for the frigid temperatures, I probably would have fallen asleep as I was walking from one place to the next.
That’s all for now. I’m off to bed. 25 days until the end of the semester and 2 weeks after that until I can take a nice loonnnnngggg nap. I’m off to take a “nap” now (less than 5 hours of sleep is a nap in my book).
Until next time…
