Late nights again.
It doesn’t come as a surprise anymore how much sleep I don’t get. I was about to say how much sleep I do get but then I thought it would make it sound like I got any.
I like to think of my days as stretched workloads mixed with 3-5 your naps. Is it healthy? Of course not. Yet here I am and staying optimistic and strong.
I managed to pull in another 10-12 hour shift today from work. If you ask me the exact number and I would look at you with a dead expression.
December is the time where I hardly get any sleep-even less from what I usually get. I think I explained how I usually take melatonin to help me sleep. If not, surprise! I tend to work 6-7 days and usually 10-16 hour shifts. This is typically what I’ve been doing the past 7 years of my life now. I’ve been a manager for most of it and usually that is just what happens during the seasonal spree.
Now, all of this doesn’t excuse myself for still being up. I have been editing the format for the current book I’m working on. I’ve talked about this book for a grand part of my blogging life and it is something I’m excited to bring out. One thing for sure is that I always listened to the advice to just write and think about the format later. Well, later has arrived and now it is major editing and fixing. Lots of work to say the least but also fun.
By now, I believe I have read My whole book from beginning to end about 10 times. I’ve actually fallen in love with the characters and even though I tend to tweak things here and there as I fix indentations, formats, and etc, it is a story that I wish to expand from if things go great. This is why I wouldn’t mind and don’t mind staying up so late-I should say early now-it is currently 4:21 a.m. where I’m at.
I think this serves as a reminder in the future, to always work hard and in the end, do something you love. I could continue spreading my retail wings and etc but I also know that I love writing. No matter how tired I am or what I have going on, I will spend my time doing what I love.
These late nights are where I am myself and to me they are the best.
