busy busy busy

So many things to do, so little sleep, so little brain capacity. Pieces of small notes everywhere. Confusion abounds.

Sleep deprivation sucks. Especially when it happens even BEFORE the academic period begins.

Gosh, I find myself schedule even more packed than usual.

Okay, so as an example, today went a little something like this:

8 a.m. - 12.30 p.m. : Wake up at an ungodly hour to meet friends from Penang who have come to Singapore for holiday.
12.30 p.m. - 5.00 p.m. : Go to church (which journey takes up 1.5 hours).
5.30 p.m. - 12.30 a.m. : Meeting. FOC stuff. Briefings. Debriefings. Discussions. Damn.

Yes, blame Freshmen Orientation Camp.

First night: 7 hours of sleep.
Second night: 5 hours of sleep.
Third night: 3 hours of sleep.
Subsequent nights: An average of 7 - 8 hours of sleep.

What is that compared to my 10 - 12 hours of sleep every night back when I was in Penang???

Believe it or not, I'm even getting into the habit of waking up IN THE MORNING!!! It's like I open my eyes and my cell phone says it's still in the a.m. but I can't go back to sleep, despite the fact that I slept at 3 a.m. the night (or morning) before. Gya~~

How on earth does one survive under this state of sleep deprivation?

What with meetings lasting up to 12 hours long and briefings/debriefings lasting up till the wee hours in the morning, you can't expect me to actually remain sane, can you?


Not that I'm complaining.

It's an experience.

I can't wait to meet them freshies.

Gonna take up the role of a senior soon!
