I can’t tell if I’ve been sick, congested, depressed, stir-crazy, or some combination of the sorts, but I think I can feel my heart pounding right now, which is weird because the last time that happened, I ended up going to the hospital for four days and was yelled at when I hijacked the shower for five minutes. 

(Seriously, four days in that place and all I wanted was a shower, but apparently that’s against the rules or something.) 

My sleep schedule has been screwed up lately. I go to bed at a reasonable hour and then end up waking at earlier than intended… usually by several hours and I have this weird feeling that it’s subconscious acting as annoying child, tapping on my shoulder to finish my to-do list. 

It’s not even a long or arduous list.

It’s simple stuff, but my body just goes, “No, you are tired. You need to rest. You are sick.”   

Yet my mind is saying things like, “Dude, you’re not that sick, you’re just fighting yourself right now. C’mon, open your laptop and work on your work. It’s that easy.” 

… Huh… It IS that easy… God, I’m stubborn.
