I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

I mean, seriously. I was always a night owl once. I called people at 3am just to wake them up and talk to me. Listening to the radio and knowing all the popular radio show (in Malaysia then there was only the government radio with songs which actually lulled you to sleep). I will be looking for food all over town before I went to bed. I was always good for an all-nighter during exams. I was always those who studied only when the exams were just going to happen in 2 weeks time. 

Heck, there was this one year in university, the gang went out to the disco and I was the only one with an exam the next day, I even brought my exam notes to the dance floor. That was how bad I was not wanting to be left out in midnight activities. I even practice this last year and this year when I was taking my post graduate Masters degree (Still am but just need to finish a report on the relevant between my industry and my degree's industry) Bad huh? Hey, maybe that is my gift. Dumb enough to know my capability.

Anyway, I think I have kind of lost that touch. Being (near) 35 maybe have to be one of the reason. I am also afraid that it has to do with the hereditary disease of diabetic which my father has. I hope not as I do test my blood every other day. Diabetic can cause you to be diet easily you know. I have stop taking sugar with any drinks (even my favourite coffee) since I was 30. That is how much I am afraid of this disease. 

However, necessity is the mother of sleeplessness. Don't get me wrong. I am not one of those who lose sleep over anything. One night, I was accosted by my senior in my boarding school because of something I done, I slept like a baby after that ordeal, that the seniors did me once over just to make sure I understand the message. We have a very 'lively' boarding school to say the least (Dead Poet Society is so not us). So, I have decided, I must challenge myself with new challenges again. I need to have that drive. What I know is, as you grow older, you need sleep less. Not more.

Like Bon Jovi said in their song once "I'll sleep when I'm dead"

Same here! In National Service for 3 months I was forced to wake up at 5.30 am every morning. People says that it takes 30 days to make a habit. But the day I got back, I reverted back right away to my normally sleeping time which is around 3......lol And during my exams my world turns upside down. I study at night and sleep during the day.

I think staying awake late is one thing a lot of bloggers have in common. I am that way too, and have been most of my life. I'm sure you already know it is difficult to change it.
