So....I started a new job a month ago as an RA in the hales. Because of our wonderfully planned out schedule, I have the opportunity to get up for one week out of the month and turn off the alarms at 6am. This week is my rotation week so I've been getting up at 5:45 every morning to turn off the alarms.
This past week has been crazy busy and I've been getting hardly any sleep. It's kind of funny because I've developed this weird twitch in my eye and I think it's because my eyes are tired. Last night I talked to my mom and she told me that I needed to get 8 hours of sleep (yeah....well that's unrealistic) and that I need to minimize my computer time (also unrealistic).
I ended up going to bed last night....after my mother's sound advice....at 2:30 am. Mostly because I got on my blog and was slightly addicted for a few hours doing updates and such.
So I'm on alarm duty this week, been going to bed obscenely late, and have a twitching eye. All caught up? GREAT!
Alrighty, back to the alarms. This morning, I got up as usual and went down to turn off the alarms and unlock the lounges and such. It usually takes 15 minutes to do everything so by the time I come back to my room it is always a little after 6 or so. I came back up this morning and I looked at my alarm clock and it said 4:15am. Was my clock messed up again?
It was two hours ahead a few days ago by some weird coincidence and now it was two hours behind. SO WEIRD. Then I decided to go look at my trusty cell phone to get the exact time so I could set my alarm ahead. I looked a my phone and it said 4:15am!!!!! YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! hahaha
Yeah...so took another stroll downstairs at 4:15am in the morning to go lock up again. Glorious! I have no idea how I magically made up an alarm in my head because my cell phone alarms were still set for 5:45am. hahahahha
I've concluded that not only does sleep deprivation make your eyes twitch but it also makes you delirious. Lesson learned: GET MORE SLEEP. I guess my momma does know what she's talking about after all.
After all was said and done, I got up again at 5:45am at the right time and turned off the alarms again. I think my commitment to the alarms should win me the RA Alarms Dedication Award.
Just a little side note: This morning I went to breakfast and told Kent and Irene about my lovely alarm mishap. Kent commented that my story was "BLOG WORTHY." YES! I have a blog worthy story. I was so excited that after my morning class I created this post. Mahalo Kent....I think it's blog worthy too. :)
