That pretty much sums it up

That pretty much sums it upWell, maybe it’s a bit premature, but it seemed fitting to get ready.  Okay, maybe not since I plan to be cremated, but you get the idea.

I’m down to as little as three hours a night, but I’m not blaming anyone but myself.  I fully admit I put myself in this predicament, but dammit, it’s  hard to say no to cold hard cash!

Oh well, sleep is for the weak, I’ll catch up someday… I hope.

    If you keep that up your testosterone level will be dramatically affected causing muscle and hairloss. During waking hours you are literally breaking down your body cells while performaing day to day activities. At night, the body is repairing itself. If you don’t get enough sleep your body will not have enough time to repair itself and you will grow old really fast. More wrinkles and fat accumulations. Also, sleep reduces chemicals in the body that are caused by stress (cortisol I think) and if you don’t get enough sleep stress will build up and you’ll eventually kick the bucket.

    You can’t catch up on your sleeping. But if you don’t get enough it will eventually catch up on you. Your health is the most important commodity.

    Anyway, I hope you left some of that cold hard cash in your will to ME!

  • Roy – Yes, everything has been left to you, on one condition…

    You never watch another episode of LOST and may never discuss the answers by any means.


  • This is tangentially-related to a topic I planned to blog about at some undetermined point in time regarding time and money. Is that money really more important than your health and well-being? Listen to Roy. He knows of what he speaks.

  • I wouldn’t say it’s more important, I would just like to get rid of some of my debt. One of the problems of working freelance is you never know how long it will last, so my thinking is it’s better to pull in as much as you can, for as long as you can.

  • Ah, I didn’t realize you were freelance. I thought you were running your own business and it was relatively steady. In that case, I heartily empathize since I often have the same attitude when I’m offered more students than I really want to teach. I end up taking them anyway because I figure I never know when I’ll lose one and end up regretting not having taken the new one.

    I also didn’t realize you were in debt though I guess almost everyone in the U.S. is these days. One of the reasons I remain in Japan is its more lucrative than going home. We have no debt and decent chances to save, even on 1.3 incomes for two people.

  • No no, I am only freelance in writing I meant. I do still own my own business… I know, it still makes me insane…

    Ah, now I see the truth of the mysterious crap happening on your website. You claim to be innocent of all fault, but the truth is ** Sleep Deprivation** is making you see things.. glad I stopped by for some light (bulb) reading.

  • Um… um… I… I plead the 5th!
