I have slept about twelve hours since I woke up Monday morning. Too much work at the end of the semester in my primary job and the end of a fiscal year in my secondary job.

It’s been a fascinating experience. I’m starting to think that it’s actually sleep that makes us sleepy. If you just push past the sleepiness, you reach a different state in which sleep is as though it had never existed. I have often described my state this week as post-tired.

I’m tempted to push this further and try out extreme polyphasic sleep.
