Always Be Sleeping

I was dead tired yesterday. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to donate two hours of my time from 6 a.m to 8 a.m. Then, I worked from 1:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m. I'm not saying it wasn't worth it, I'm just saying I could've been sleeping. 

I know what you're thinking. "This is just gonna be another post where Charlie says he doesn't have anything this week and tells us he's tired." Wrong! Let's talk about sleep.

I need it!  If I don't get it, I'm a monster in the morning. I need a solid six hours of good sleep, like deep REM cycle stuff. None of this U2 business. I mean, it takes a lot to look this good. It's not as effortless as I make it seem. *wink*

Almost everything that I say can be followed by the words "but I could have been sleeping." It's that important to me. I value my time asleep as much as I value my time awake. A good night's sleep is the reason that I'm a civil engineer and not an architect. I just couldn't sleep on a cold concrete floor using my backpack as a pillow. This post is a day late because  I actually fell asleep in the middle of writing it. That's not an excuse, it's the truth. 

What I'm trying to say is that I apologize, but I was asleep. (That's what she said!) I slept for 12 hours and I feel great today. And on a rainy Tuesday, what could be better? I can't think of anything.
