The ABC's of Sleep Deprivation

Posted on

This post has stuff about religion and a previous relationship. My perspective has changed


Who hates sleep? Me. I’d rather spend the night awake blogging or coding. I have no desire to sleep at all. This obviously causes some problems with family and work so I set out to convince myself that I need sleep. What I came up with is the ABC ’s of sleep deprivation:

dl. Attention:When I don’t sleep I have the attention span of a 2 year old
Belligerence:I get cranky and take it out on my wife and kids
Congruence:It’s hard to get up for work after a late night and I usually end up late for the carpool
Disposition:Lack of sleep makes me feel insecure and melancholy
Energy:My body feels fatigued and no amount of caffeine can help me stay awake
Fellowship:I don’t want to talk to or hang out with anyone
Gumption:Initiative or motivation plummet
Health:Not sleeping is bad for me and I know it
Intellect:I’m dumber when I’m tired

It’s 12:35 AM and I’m too tired to finish this list.
