You know that feeling where you get so tired to the point you no longer feel tired? You’re probably functioning on ‘spare battery’. I felt so damn tired in the afternoon, before suddenly my energy levels just surged back up. I thought the sleep debt would spill over to the next day, but it turns out that I actually woke up earlier than my alarm clock and felt more energetic than normal. The human body works in funny ways. Its probably like how you don’t feel hungry after a while cos you’re digesting your stomach walls…or something like that.
The reason I was functioning on ‘spare battery’ on monday was due to my failed plan of going back on Sunday night. This was so that I didn’t have to wake up at 5 next day. The story goes that while I attempted to sleep at around 1130, my friend came in at midnight and happily switched on the lights. Then when I did get a bit of real sleep, some
fuc… M- oron climbed in through my window, turned on the lights and asked for soap several times. Talk about intrusion of privacy/trespassing/plain nuisance. He came in a second time soon after, this time saying “oh wrong room”.
In my half asleep state, two questions puzzled me: First, who the hell asks for soap 230am at night? I thought it was almost the time to wake up, but my phone later told me otherwise. Second, who makes the same mistake twice after turning on the lights the first time? My bunk has a freaking mountain of rubbish by the door and on the table. The stark difference is also proof that chinese are unhygienic and disorganised. I assure you that I do not contribute to any of the mess outside of my cupboard =x
The next day I also realised that there were two big bottles of soap in our ‘communal cupboard’ which would have been obvious with the lights on. I’m guessing that with all the trash around, he assumed they were empty.
More than being annoyed at my sleep deprivation, I am still trying to figure out what was going on in his head. It’s like a puzzle with more unanswered questions, and in some perverse manner, entertains me a bit. It’s more wholesome entertainment than random bitching/gossip though. The human mind works in ways funnier than the human body. In particular, that of psychos, idiots and women — they do things differently there.
But more seriously — it is fortunate that my reflex action while pretending to sleep was to flip to my left and place my hand on my phone. I might not have done that if the lights didn’t wake me up…but heck, who could find it without the lights on anyway -_-
I will just wake up earlier to travel there next time. I get more sleep that way especially since I ACTUALLY STAY NEARBY.
do the math to find out how much uninterrupted sleep i had. funnily i was just thinking about this one incident that really really pissed me off one saturday night back then (but thats a thing of the past already) that i was made to do and cost me a lot of uninterrupted sleep.
