Oof.  That doesn't sound like a pleasant dream at all.

I had a dream that I was getting it on with a friend from high school. Not even a particularly close friend, nor one I was ever all that attracted to. hmmn

I've had a dream like that on several occasions. Makes me wonder if I was actually attracted to her or not (subconciously or otherwise)

I dream about work a lot. This was normal in a combat zone, if annoying.
Now I dream about getting orders submitted for publication and getting people into schools and getting behind in submitting pay fixes and other administrative BS. That's pretty irritating.

Maybe you need to spice up your administrative life with some improve song performances at bizarre times.

I may have some undirected frustrations and angers lurking in my psyche.

Which is news to me, as I haven't exactly been feeling that way.

Last night, I had these dreams where Madam Anthrax kept yelling at me as I tried to accomplish something I no longer remember, but kept having problems beyond my control. I wasn't precisely angry with her (although I wasn't happy about the yelling), as much as frustrated with not accomplishing my goal, whatever it involved.

So, if dreams reflect some of what goes on in the hidden places of our mind, I think I may have some frustrations and angers lurking in my psyche. It has to be work... oh... I think I just worked it out.

I think I'm still frustrated about my financial setbacks. I need to replace a crown, and my car suffered a flat tire. I also had to have some plumbing work done. These all have hit me at pretty close to the same time, and I lack the income to do this without getting a tad concerned.
I bet this has frustrated me, and I've been ignoring it. Hmm. Not much I can do about it, except try to make more money (which is happening this year).

Time to make a budget.

I didn't appreciate the value of a budget at all until I got into debt over my head and ended up in a situation with little-to-no surplus cash. I've been in a similar situation where a number of events happened all at once, and I didn't have the funds for it all. I'm hopefully at a point now where I'll have a positive cash-flow again, and the first action is to save back as much as I can. That way, I'll have a buffer in case of any unexpected expenses. After that, it'll be saving up for known, expected, expenses, like regular maintenance on the cars, taxes, etc. Then, hopefully, I can start saving up for the niceties like new floors, kitchen counters, etc.

I have a working budget. It's just unanticipated expenses happening at about the same time.

But, this will pass. And my paycheck has become more regular now. The question is really one of what will the future hold... quite a bit of potential to do some awesome stuff in the next year or two, but I've grown somewhat pessimistic, despite some lingering optimism.

Subject: 8 hour sleep vs. two 4 hour sleeps?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Here's an article that suggests a "normal" 8 hours of sleep might be the least normal thing in the world. What do you think?

I'm not really in possession of enough knowledge to have an opinion of the relative merits of one 8-hour sleep vs. two 4-hour sleeps, but I have to admit the latter does sound appealing.  (Of course, the idea of actually getting a full 8 hour sleep every night sounds appealing too!)

It was food for thought, reading the article after having been awoken by a wrong number phone call at about 5:00am and then not being able to fall asleep again.  And I thought of it again the next morning after being woken up by a spam text message.  Unfortunately I can't silence my phone because I need to be reachable by the office around the clock.

Going to sleep when it gets dark ... what an appealing idea.  Of course, to do that, our society would need to eliminate prime time television (no big loss there) as well as late night computer sessions (ummmm...)

I mostly try to let my body do its thing, with regards to sleep. I might push it a little farther, just so I sleep better. Unfortunately, work tends to prevent me from falling asleep in the middle of the day if I feel a need to do so.

I think it is how well you sleep when you sleep. There are many times when I wish I could get a 15 to 30 minute power nap during the day. Power naps are
better than coffee, sometimes I don't even have to sleep but close my eyes and shut off the world for ten minutes and I feel energized.

I may have mentioned this before. Best sleep I ever had was in Afghanistan, working four on twelve off (er, hours, that is), so I had a constantly rotating schedule. I slept when I was tired, ate when I was hungry, and bathed 40 days later. It didn't hurt that I had an utterly fantastic starscape at night (bed being a hole in the ground I dug for mortar protection, so no roof).

Back at base, I slept for 3 hours at a time, max. I would cat nap in the company office all day in between missions, but I always slept great in the field.

I'm having trouble staying awake right now. After eight hours of sleep.

Had a sleep study last night, when they asked if there were any conditions that kept me from getting a good nights sleep I told them,
"yes there were a bunch of wires and tubes attached to my head."

I started taking melatonin and that seems to help.

One thing I have worried about regarding taking melotonin is the future inability to sleep at all without taking melotonin.

Also I hear you can get some wacky dreams.

I don't take it every night and I don't usually remember dreams so it is ok.

I don't usually remember dreams either. I have been tempted to try it since it takes me forever to fall asleep.

Does melotonin work at all? Supposedly it's "natural" but I can't imagine it wouldn't be habit forming.

My wife is still taking painkillers for the back surgery she had a couple of weeks ago, and they're pretty much giving her the ability to nap around the clock. She's got some melotonin that she's hoping to use to get back onto a normal diurnal schedule. I have my doubts...
