I used to be one of those people to loudly brag on about how I "function just fine on five hours of sleep". While that may or (probably) may not have been true (both the five hours and the functioning part), this has definitely changed.
See, I gave this whole 'eight hours' thing a try, and let me tell you. It's friggin magic. Not only are a seriously disrupting caffeine habit and hazardous 4 PM afternoon dips (Geronimooo!) no longer facts of life, it turns out those slow sleepy hours between nine and noon weren't just signs of me 'not being a morning person'. I am still not a morning person, but at least my brain can perform simple tasks like tying my shoes or having a polite conversation with colleagues without insane amounts of sugar and/or coffee.
This is all a very roundabout way of telling you that it's been two months since I last posted here. And it's because I chose sleep over blogging. And I am not sorry. Sleep is glorious, you should try it. Enjoy the long ass update!
