Sometimes I can't wait to go to sleep at night, just so I can get up in the morning and start another amazing day! I normally do not sleep for a long period of time, usually five to six hours, so if I go to sleep around 11:30 pm or midnight I am usually awake by 5 or 6 am.
I enjoy waking up early, it is quiet, the day is fresh, and the air is clean. It is like another rebirth every morning. Like the night has washed away the sins of yesterday and given us a chance to start anew.
I fell asleep watching tv, early last night, around 9 pm. When I woke up I felt refreshed and wide awake. Sometimes when I haven't had a lot of sleep I can be a bit groggy, but not this morning, I felt great! I knew it had to be pretty early since I had fallen asleep so early, but that's alright it just means that I get to start my day that much earlier. So I wondered, what time is it? Three o'clock, four maybe? I checked my phone, 10:37. 10:37? That can't be right! I never sleep for more than 12 hours! I notice that it is still dark outside. With the change from daylight savings it has been darker a lot later in the morning than we have been used to, but it can't still be dark out. I checked my phone again, 10:38!
Well, I decided to make some coffee, after all it is usually what I do in the morning. Maybe I was still dreaming and it was really 6 am, maybe my cell phone was broken. There had to be some explanation. As I am sitting here typing this it is now 11:05. So I have come to the conclusion that I am just a freak, possibly turning into a vampire or something. Funny, I don't remember getting bit, and all of the evidence I have read about in books or seen in the movies would suggest that is something I would remember.
So I feel asleep early, slept for a little over an hour and a half, and now I am sitting here just like I would every morning drinking coffee and clacking away on my keyboard. However, I am presented with a real problem today, it's not a new day! If I had slept for 3 hours and I woke up after midnight I could understand and completely deal with that, but this is just the tail end of yesterday, and it is not even yesterday yet, it is now!
I think I have fallen into some sort of twisted black hole of fate. My only solace is the fact that the clock is still running! Maybe I will be alright. Maybe I will pull through this. The question does still remain though, can I start my day, a new day, before the old one has even expired? Even as I write this I am questioning the tense of my wording. I know some of it is wrong because I am writing about events as if they happened in the past, but they are happening to me right now!
Maybe this is some sort of sick joke that someone is playing on me. Maybe someone set the clock on my phone and computer back six hours and it is really 4 am now. Of course they would've had to paint my windows black, and I don't think they did because I can still see out the windows. Unless they took photos from inside my house, blew up the photos, and hung them outside my windows so I would think it was still dark outside. Well, I just checked, that didn't happen!
Well, it is now 11:35 pm on 3/13/13, hmmmm, has anyone looked at the date closely today? A lot of 1's and 3's going on, maybe that has something to do with my dilemma, and of course I just heard a train whistle blow and now I can hear the train rumbling down the tracks as it passes by. This is all very peculiar. The silence inside deafens me. The darkness creeps around watching me, waiting for me to notice it and realize it is not going away. No, this morning I do not get to sit down, enjoy my coffee, and write a bit while I wait for the sun to gently crawl out of bed and brighten my day. There are no birds beginning to chirp, there are no cars on their way to work. No this morning only darkness and silence, with of course the occasional train rumbling by, but at least I have my coffee and I am wide awake, which does seem odd since I slept so little. It will probably hit me later.
OK, so now it is 11:41 pm and I would like to get this published before midnight so it is time stamped and everyone believes me. Of course I could be lying about the whole thing, but I am not! Or perhaps I am lying to myself and this is all a dream and when I wake this will all be gone. I pinched myself! It proved nothing! So, now onto my next problem, like the day 3/13/13 that would never end, I seem to be stuck in an infinite loop and don't now how to end this post. Maybe I will just end it. I always reread my work before I post it, but I am almost afraid to do so today. For one thing it may push me past midnight, secondly it may just sound like garbage, which I think it does, and I may just trash it, even though maybe I should keep it. i am stuck in another loop again.
So, I will just end it and post it. I will go get some more coffee and read it back after I post it. If anyone has any suggestions, an idea for an ending, or if you would like to just tell me that you are sick of my crazy ramblings, then by all means please let me know.
OK, I am signing off. Good morning everyone! Or is it good night? Muhahahahaha!
