Random thoughts on sleep deprivation

Like so many people, I’ve been suffering from insomnia lately. Between the two jobs I can alternate between day and night shifts frequently which makes having a normal sleep cycle pretty difficult. I work two jobs by choice because the hospital helps me keep my skills up to date and the State allows me to put bad people in jail. It's a good mix.

My problem is that when I’m exhausted, I’m unable to focus on ANYTHING. I'm awake, but I'm also useless. When I’m reading stories so many of them say something like, "I was unable to sleep and I decided to write this little drabble". And, of course, the drabble is amazing. So what am I missing here?

Why do I turn into a drooling waste of space when I’m tired and everyone else is able to scribe wonderful bits of lovely fiction?

I must learn this talent and use it to my advantage.

I'm off to stare at the television and drool on myself. :D

That's a relief- or you're telling me what I want to hear, Ryan. You certainly haven't been forgotten. I would see a fic that you posted and then see another fandom and just patiently wait and hope. ; )

I didn't make it to bed on time. It was more like 4:00. I have painters coming tomorrow and I was clearing the way. Not my brightest move. Like you, I still kept waking up. I wonder why that is?

Hope you're enjoying your "rump" day. I'll be reading your latest this evening. Dining entertainment!
