That’s right, you read correctly. I’m going on strike! I’m tired of falling asleep whenever someone talks to me. I’m tired of forcing my eyes to stay open and focused on this computer screen. I’m tired of waking up in the morning feeling like shit, even after a full night’s rest.
I’ve decided to go on strike. I have way too many things going on in my life to waste time sleeping. It’s bad enough we only get 24 hours in a day, but on top of that we’re expected to sleep eight of them. Give me a break! It would be one thing if it were only four hours but eight (hell, sometimes it’s even ten)!? You would think that sleep ruled our lives. Well, I’m fed up! No more sleeping until this outrageous calamity is resolved.
What’s more, I plan to take full advantage of my newfound free time: catching up on my reading list, watching the news, getting addicted to WoW, making new friends, finding a new girlfriend (or a second one!), learning how to cook, teaching myself Finnish, becoming the backup field goal kicker for the Texans, doing some writing that isn’t complete bullshit, watching the entire series of Lost, downloading p… I’ll have time for so many new and exciting things. This is going to be wonderful.
Now you may ask: Carlos, how are you planning to stay awake for more than two days straight without turning into a zombie? Oh ye of little faith, doubting Thomases the lot of ye! Never underestimate the power of determination and will-power. While the path I’m taking may be long and hard, I shall triumph because my cause is just!
And if that doesn’t work, there is always coffee.
