Reflections upon a particularly horrible day

Let’s get this post started with how this day came to be horrible and then go on to my thoughts about it.

I think that the one thing that really made this day worse than the past few was the distinct lack of sleep, both last night as well as for the week previous all coming together into some great conflagration, destroying the entire day for me.

You see, I didn’t get to sleep until 5:00 AM today, and then I woke up at 10:00AM. Although most of the time I’m able to function semi-normally on just 5 hours of sleep, the fact that I’ve been getting maybe 6 hours for the past week or so has really created a sleep deficit. And my body decided to pay me back today, big time.

When my body pays me back, it almost always happens to me emotionally, thankfully. Well, it’s both good and bad. While I’m not sick for ages, I do tend to mess things up for a while. I get irritable, pushy, and very feisty. That all happened to me today.

It all seemed to come together tonight when we went out for dinner at Black Angus, home of the gravy pipe. I know that I wasn’t the nicest of people tonight, so I tried to keep my mouth shut as much as possible. Even so I still slipped out some stuff that I kind of regret saying. But unlike the Internet, you can’t remove something and pretend that it never happened. Unfortunatelly.

I guess that the biggest reflection back upon today that I have to make is that sleep is really important, and I need to get back onto a regular schedule, especially considering that I have an 8:30 class this upcoming semester. Yay, Russian!
