sleep

it's kinda weird how i handle myself when i lack sleep. the way i walk, may focus while crossing the street, the random thoughts in my head. argh, i hate lack of sleep! usually i feel so tired for about 2 hours after waking up, then these weird and unusual things happen and then bang, i would realize that i was just another good example of being clumsy. bumping the people i pass by, nearly tripping off the street by just a small rock, loosing balance while walking. hahaha. i don't like the felling when i lack sleep. however, i am heading through it. whether i like it or not, there will come a time that i would be working with just a rest of 2 hours for sleeping or even none. hayyy. oh crap i'm not making sense again. hahaha

boredom strikes

Have you ever got that feeling when you know in your mind you have tonnes of things to do, but then you realize that damn, you are not doing anything to finish all your task. Is it a question of motivation? Well, isn't the pressure to finish things on time not enough to keep on going. Does it really have to be the day before to realize that things MUST be accomplished? Oh crap, maybe i need some good distractions. A good sleep will not help because it would just eat my precious hours, in big bites! Argh, i hate this feeling. I'm not hungry, I'm not deprived of sleep or anything. I need to do something, I need to start now!
