It feels extremely odd that I have been up for four hours and normally I would have been just getting started in my first class at school. As of now it feels that I have opened my whole day up and I have an endless amount of time to do whatever I please. So far I have read, set up the blog, and watched an episode of criminal minds (I dozed off for the last ten minutes). I have been very lazy for four hours but the thing is it’s only nine o’clock in the morning; I still have my whole day ahead of me, except of course for one nap.
As I mentioned before, I dozed off for no more then ten minutes. I wouldn’t be so concerned about this except I am not tired at all. This is bad news because from about 7:00 until 8:20 I was extremely drowsy resulting in me resting for a few moments. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to stay up until 2 o’clock on the first day. Even if when switching sleep cycles you’re not supposed to be able to stay up for the nine or ten hours after the first night I count this as a loss.
The last thing to note is my hunger. Normally I have dinner at around six or seven then don’t eat until breakfast twelve hours later. That is pretty average for human’s eating habits. What I thought would happen was that my body wouldn’t get hungry until seven in the morning and I could continue to have three meals a day. This is not the case. Even though I had steak last night at six, I was extremely hungry at 5 a.m. today. And since about seven I have been starving. That’s why I am about to make some eggs for my second breakfast. I also had a banana at around six thirty but I’m counting that as my first breakfast. It appears right now that I will have to eat about five meals a day with smaller portions. The approximate times they would happen would be about 5:00, 7:30/8:00, noon, 6:00 and 10:00. I don’t mind this new meal schedule at all and if I remember correctly, many smaller meals is actually much healthier.
I’m wide awake and alert which concerns me because of my ten minute nap. I am also very hungry. My mental state appears to be fine (maybe skittish) but I just noticed now as I’m typing that my hands are shaking. I could attribute that to the fact that I’m slightly cold even with a cardigan on.
I thought about changing into pants because I was cold earlier (I never experienced being awake on purpose that early before). However, I decided against it not wanting to change outfits multiple times a day. I think that I may have to wear pants and sweaters in the morning then change into shorts and t-shirts around noon or before my second rest period.
I should have another update after three o’clock.
