This is a quick post. More of a question for folks, really.
Aside from the physical discomfort associated with not getting enough sleep, such as headache or digestion issues, the main thing I notice is how the rest of the world seems off when I’m tired.
My jokes don’t hit as well, wadded up papers miss the trashcan, buses arrive late, etc. I know logically that this is due to the fact that my coordination, concentration, and mood may be off due to my non-rested state. Still, it’s almost like the world isn’t completely finished, like it needed my inattention to fully form.
Or, maybe each night we dream the world into existence, and if we stay up too late we throw together a rush job not worthy of our participation. The world is a fluid place that can be amazing when I’m rested or ramshackle when I’m dog tired.
The question is, am I the only one who experiences this?
