Is this a Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

My last post was in July. What have I been doing since then? Working. If it's not stuff for my actual job, it's stuff for my EdS degree (aka my Masters in Hoop Jumping). I've managed to work a few tiny wedding plans in here and there...it's a good thing we set the date for next fall because I couldn't have done all of this and planned an entire wedding at the same time!

I thought that I'd have time to post some stuff on my blogs during fall break, and honestly this is the first chance I've had. Really the only reason I'm not working on stuff is that I'm getting my hair done. There's not much you can do with a head full of foil.

On to today's subject. I woke up around 4:30 or 5 this morning and naturally started thinking. I'd been in a deep sleep; you know when you wake up and you can tell you've been in exactly the same position all night? Yea, it was one of those. Whenever I wake up like that I'm always excited because I think, "Yea, way to go! REM sleep and whatnot." The downside is that I can't continue sleeping in that spot because now it's all sweaty and gross and unacceptable.

So I rolled over to the other side of the bed, the completely cool side of the bed--score. Who doesn't love the cool side of the pillow? Probably terrorists. I checked the time, 4:30 or 5. It didn't matter today because I was on break but typically this would be exciting because that means there's more time to sleep. Jim Gaffigan says waking up and realizing you still have time to sleep is like finding $1,000.

At this point, most people would just fall back asleep. But lucky bucket of crazy that I am, I had to go back and forth weighing whether or not my current situation was a good thing or a bad thing.

  • Deep sleep: good thing
  • Sweaty sheets that must now be avoided: bad thing
  • Relocation to untouched, cool sheets: delightfully good thing
  • Time to sleep: good thing
  • Brain keeping you awake with stupid list: bad thing

Ultimately, I came to the following conclusion. What's wrong with me? Everything.
