All day, every day I feel exhausted. It’s as if I am being consumed by the energy vampire that is daylight. Today I fell asleep for 15 minutes at around 9:30pm. Not long enough for a real sleep but I had felt like if closing my eyes at any point today I would have fallen asleep. This very nearly happened in the hair dressers earlier, I wonder if they’ve experienced that before?

It’s now 1:24 in the morning and I am awake, and very much focused on getting something done. I have a sense of wakefulness and clarity which I do not feel most of the time. As everyone and everything is asleep (except you foxes, you screaming weirdos) I am left undisturbed.

I’ve tried sleeping earlier and waking up at the crack of dawn, but it only lasts a day or two before It literally exhausts¬†me.¬†Introducing exercise to get a good nights sleep helps, but when I have no energy in the day time to contemplate exercising, it’s a false start.

It’s a mystery, so I’m going to speculate it has something to do with the fact that I do not tan, I burn and my nan is Irish. Thanks genes, sort it out, Science!

Also, coffee is life.

I like my desk how I like my coffee. Everywhere.
