The Sleep Demon got me too

Posted on: June 10/07

This is for you, Kev…an entry that is NOT (directly) related to fangirling!

Yesterday was a day where I think I’ve redeemed on all my “beauty sleep” credits. It all started with a minor headache-like feeling after work. Actually, I don’t even know if it really was a headache or not; it was more like a dull aching at the back of my eye/brain-kinda-thing. (Unless you’ve experienced something similar before, you are probably giving me the “weirdo” look right about now =P) Perhaps it was just fatigue that got my head feeling a little funny. Anyway, when I got home, I plopped myself down on the sofa in the living room, where my mom was watching this Korean drama that I semi-follow (I’m also not quite sure of the name of it). I fell asleep within seconds. This was around 7:00 pm.

My mom woke me up around 7:30 for dinner. Bummer, my “headache” was still there. 😦 After dinner, I didn’t feel like doing anything because of the stupid headache; I didn’t even feel like going on the computer (surprise!) But knowing that sleeping again at this time was probably not such a good idea, I tried to stay awake by chatting with my mom. Unfortunately, we chatted sitting on her bed, so eventually, both me and my mom fell asleep again around 8:45 pm.

When I woke up again, I was greeted with both good and bad news: Good news? My headache was gone! Bad news? It was 11:00…pm still. EEK! “What to do?!” I pondered as I took a shower. (I was actually STILL in my work clothes all this time, meaning business casual dress shirt & pants. It’s a wonder I slept so soundly during the past 2 times!) After that, I quickly did my daily routine on the computer (ie. email, T&T blogs, etc.) and tried to return to sleep at a little past midnight. Thank God for my usual ability to drift off to dreamland at the snap of a finger! I actually fell asleep AGAIN within minutes! Note: this is actually earlier than my usual sleep time too! Which makes it all the more amazing!

I woke up a couple times before my alarm at 9:00 am. But every time, I fell back asleep instantly. ^^ Yappari, Takki’s “sleep demon” must have been with me!* 😀 Nearly 12 hours of sleep in total. I seriously have not slept away this much of a 24-hr day in a while.

*In reference to Takiren Vol. 301, specifically Nere’s translation (you must be logged in though)

Today at church, a new guy came. He’s from Japan! Too bad I didn’t work up the courage to go up to him and speak my not-very-fluent 日本語 *sweat*, even with coaxing from some of my guy friends who know my *ahem* tendencies for Japanese guys (or all things Japanese for that matter! LOL~). I tell myself: “Next week! Zettai ni!” Good thing there’s a high chance of him coming again because he is actually a homestay at my friend, Jon’s place! ^^ SHUSH! I know I am pathetic…XP

Other than that, I went for Korean food today with my church friends. I’m not big on red-chili spicy foods, so ordering was a bit of a hassle, but I still managed and enjoyed my lunch! We went to stroll around IKEA afterwards! I LOVE THAT STORE!!! haha 😀

What’s coming up:
Wed – biostat “lab” exam (it’s actually to test our usage of this computer program…retarded, I think, because when am I ever gonna use that specific program to calculate statistics again?! NEVER!!! ><)
Thurs – biostat final written exam
Finally! My summer can REALLY start after all this! Can’t wait! =)

Hi Skammie… just dropping by to say Hi!! Gotta go hit the sack. Will return again. Cool website that is easy on the eyes!! =D Keep it up!! (and this coming from someone who knows NOTHING about webpage building.. haha. I got mine done with 100% help from Dithers.) XDD

Eeeek, I’ve had days like that too where your headache just doesn’t want to leave you alone. Glad yours went away!
I fell asleep around 4 this afternoon and I know for sure I will never get back to sleep until after midnight. You’re lucky you fall asleep so fast. =P

Funneh about the new Japanese guy LOL. I got all excited when my history class started for the summer last week because there’s a Japanese guy in it that sits diagonal from me. He is super cute and stupid me is toooooooooo shy to talk to him. *dies*
So no, you’re not pathetic. 😉 lol. Good luck! =D heehee
What’s he on homestay for? English study or just to visit the country? Sounds cool XD

Yes!! Thanks skammer! Except, now I know you’re going to retreat into jap-fangirl posts for another month 😛 Oh well, I’ll remind you again to do a (somewhat) normal post.
