When I Am Sleepy

Just like a few minutes ago, my officemate saw me closing my eyes in front of the PC. I am very very sleepy. I better pack my things now and head home. Perhaps I'd just sleep in the sofa like I did on Valentine's Day when I was dead tired from lack of sleep due to the flower orders and deliveries.

When I sleep, I don't hear anything, nor feel anything. I can skip meal and good movies. Even alarm clocks have little or no effect on me. Once (when I was on my teens) our house was almost flooded because of a strong typhoon, I just curled and rolled the buri mat on me. It was only when my uncle kicked me that I got up. I'm afraid that I won't even get up if a burglar comes to our house at dawn.

Oh well, I have no sleeping difficulties. I can sleep while riding a jeepney or maybe even with loud disco music. I can sleep in meetings, too. But I can't sleep while driving, or waiting for a flight or playing PC games. That, I don't know why.

miki, as long as you can sleep well at nighttime, there's no problem.

My friends always wonder if I sleep well at night coz I always fall asleep during vacant. I actually sleep well.. But instead of just sitting in the classroom and chatting with classmates, I prefer sleeping. Hehe.

Mahirap talaga pag hindi kumpleto ang tulog. Even while driving kapag antok ka, mahirap. Mahina reflexes mo.

Like Miki, I envy your ability to catch some sleep at any hour of the day.

As far as driving, waiting for a flight, or playing on a PC, it could be the sense of responsibility (driving) or excitement/anticipation (waiting and playing on a PC) that keeps you awake. :)
