Vampira, princess of the night

I’m turning into a vampire. Or something.

I can’t sleep at night anymore, and I’ve therefore been finding it increasingly difficult to stay awake during the day.

I end up doing a lot of work in the middle of the night (hence most things on the weblog are posted at about 3am) becuase of class and stuff, but I’ve really turned into a nocturnal creature lately.

Part of it is that I just don’t sleep that much, period. Yesterday and today I slept a lot, mostly because the two days prior i had slept a grand total of five hours becauase of this video production final project I’ve been shooting (hence no weblog), and have to work on again on Monday.

For some reason, though, even if I manage to get into bed at a relatively decent hour, I suddenly become not as tired and end up reading many pages of my 1,000 page Truman biography, which is interesting but is kind of counterproductive when I really need to sleep.

Not sleeping at night, of course, leaves me really worn out during the day, so I fall asleep in about two thirds of my classes. Well, actually, this has gone down since I discovered that doing the Daily‘s crossword puzzle will actually keep me awake, though not necessarily paying attention.

Then I end up taking a nap when I get home from class and starting the whole stupid cycle all over again. Clearly, this is not a good sign for my summer job, since I have to be there at 8:30am every morning, and it takes me about an hour to get there from my apartment.

Oh well. It could be worse.

I could be talking in a Transylvanian accent and telling people I vant to suck their bloooooood.
