I wrote that once in a cover letter (umm, yeah), and I landed the job. Now, it was the same job I got fired from, but that's besides the point. I'm an extremely hard worker, which I'm sure will pay off at some point, but unfortunately my I-will-do-whatever-it-takes-to-make-it attitude isn't conducive to a lot of sleep. Lately I've been getting about five to six hours a night during the week, which might not seem so bad, but I'm definitely an eight hours of sleep kind of girl. Some people thrive on little Zzz's—I am not one of them.
Diddy doesn't get much pillow time—or so he says. How does he do it? He has so many assistants, maybe he's devised a way to have someone sleep for him. That would be sweet.
Anyway, this am, my alarm went off at 6am and I was so incredibly tired. I felt like it would be impossible to wake up, but after five minutes, I talked myself out of bed. I had some blog-related things to get done early because I have a busy late afternoon/evening. I had such a hard time keeping my eyes open, that after two hours, I crawled back into bed to take a 30-minute power nap. I didn't wake up feeling totally refreshed, but it helped a little. I think. (But P.S. I fell asleep on the subway today—like full-on REM mode. Scary.)
I'm starting to worry that my lack of sleep will interfere with my productivity. So tell me: How much sleep do YOU get? Is it a priority in your life?
