Errrrrgggghhhh.  That’s pretty much how I feel right now.  So much work, so little sleep—it’s all fairly overwhelming.

My feelings on coffee: it’s great for when you need it.  In my opinion, people drink it way too much in their daily lives.  My relationship with coffee is that when I am exceptionally tired, I will drink it, but never simply for its taste.  When I indulge in all its caffeinated glory, it is for a purpose (usually as to not fall asleep in class), and I do my best to drink it only on these days when I find myself especially tired.

Recently, these types of days have been occurring quite regularly.  Like, every day.

Accordingly, coffee is a common companion of mine.  However, you know a problem has arisen when you drink coffee and still continue to feel drowsy and still fall asleep at inappropriate times.

An exaggeration, but nonetheless, you get my point.

For example, I found myself actually nodding off during jazz band rehearsal tonight.  In practice.  While holding an instrument in my hands and playing music.  That seems problematic.

Lately I’ve felt the incentive to set my alarm early so I can rise earlier and accomplish more in the mornings, such as practicing and writing new music.  But then 2 a.m. rolls around and I think to myself, “Yeeeeeeaaaahhhh, that’s not gonna happen.”

This is something I believe every freshman has to face, especially those participating in Greek life.  I need somebody to turn to me and tell me it gets better.  I really, really do hope it gets better.


Time to (try to) catch some Z’s.
