I’m going on my second day of no sleep tomorrow. I had slept in until quite late this past Saturday, and wound up being up until nearly 5:30/6am Saturday night. I hit about 6/7 hours Sunday, finally being productive around 1 or 2 in the afternoon.
So. I stayed up Sunday night until today and… I’ll be staying up tomorrow until late evening. I find it to be a fun, yet slightly risky, experiment because I have an early optometrist’s appointment in the morning and then I work all day. Literally. From 12 to about 3 or 4, whenever they cut me, and then from 5 to 7/8:30; again, whenever they decide to cut me from the floor.
Of course I have a plan for my success, correction, hopeful success. One thing is certain — caffeine and taurine. Oh, yes: Monster drinks. One for the evening, one for the morning/lunch shift at work, and one for the evening shift at work.
The other factor in keeping me up is my cigarette habit. Though it’s not really a habit, I don’t /have/ to smoke, it’s something that tends to help keep me alert.
Well, I shall blog tomorrow evening with the update of how my second day in a row without sleep went. Until then!
