(*yawns* This is APADO, the self-punishment of blogging every day. I haven’t failed yet, so I’d say I’m doing okay.)
When the day is done and I’m through cramming my brain with information for the day, I, like most humans, need to sleep.
My bedtime routine is a categorically specific process, which is strange for an ENFP, but I can’t get myself calmed down any other way.
Whoops. I guess I should make up my bed before I do this post. In truth, I don’t regularly make up my bed, but I’m not going to show this flattened pancake nest of a bed on my blog.
There we go.
Instead of the harsh overhead light, I like to turn on my lamp. It helps to calm me down and relax before bedtime. It also makes photography kind of difficult, but EH.
Whoa, that photo was aesthetic.
I have a little controller thing that makes it so I can turn off the lights from bed.
Jedi skills unnecessary. Isn’t it convenient?
There are two types of people in this world – people who can sleep with a fan, and people who can’t. I’m one of the first. Not only is it necessary for temperature control, the sound is soothing. And since I’m sleeping alone now (for the first time in my life), having some white noise helps.
Then I set my alarm (because if I do it any later, I’ll forget). I put my alarm clock on my dresser so that I have to haul myself out of bed to turn it off. Once I’m out of bed, I’m awake, so it really helps to get me up in the morning.
Then I get up in my bed and write in my journal. I get profoundly serene at this point – I have to force myself to not fall asleep yet.
I have some books up here, but I’m usually too tired to read.
So with the fan on, my alarm set, my thoughts recorded, I get under the covers, hit the light switch…
…and stare at my glow-in-the-dark stars until I fall asleep.
Ugh, now I’m tired. I think it’s bedtime.
Sayonara for now,
