My let’s-kill-the-jet-lag plan is working (sort of)! Yesterday I went to sleep around 11 pm like a normal person! Unfortunately, my body does not like being called normal so I woke up between 4 or 5 am. Tried everything I could think of (mental exercises, counting, breathing slowly, breathing fast, taking a shower…) to force myself into falling asleep one more time but nope. That was it.
But it still felt great not to start a day at night. AND I managed to do some work which means that in 3 hours I’m gonna be a free person with all my projects completed! Yippee!
So to celebrate all that I took a nap. And as naps are like time travels, my no-more-work-happiness moved in time (to the future). I had some weird dream (REM phase, yay!) about running away from robots (I blame my loud fridge) but my energy levels are spiking again. An hour’s nap turned me from this:
So three more hours of hard work and after that, a walk around my neighborhood! This time, in comfortable shoes!
Update: I’ve just realized that it’s gonna be dark in 3 hours so I’m going out now 🙂
Back at home, I promised myself that I would deal with my jet lag within the first week. So I have two more days, it’s so good to be me!
I feel kinda bad about constantly whining but I’m really exhausted. Every day I go to bed around midnight, manage to fall asleep around 4 or 5 am and wake up between 1 and 3 pm. This sucks! And today it sucks even more because I misread my work details (I work from home) and what I thought would require 6 hours of my time is going to take me (at least) 16 hours. Deadline is on Monday so I won’t be able to leave my apartment this weekend which is such a waste of time because I’m in effing Tokyo! And this project I’m working on is just so boring that it makes me wanna take a nap or worse: watch Netflix! And I know that I shouldn’t even think about it. So yeah… Not my best weekend.
On the bright side, I won’t starve because I still have some food supplies and I won’t die of thirst because of my precious vending machine downstairs. Today I bought the usual (Wonda Coffee, 120 ¥), a bottle of water (100 ¥) and my new favorite drink: Mitsuya Cider (120 ¥) which is just too good!
