marathon

Almost looked like I wasn’t going to get my post for the week done, but here I am again, after a marathon week. I’m so tired and sleep-deprived. I can’t remember the last time I got a solid eight hours of sleep. I’ve been telling myself the bare minimum is six hours per night, because some research thing I heard about a while back said that if you sleep less than six hours a night, your risk of heart disease, etc, etc increases dramatically. Hopefully I’ll be ok.

Being on placement Monday to Friday, I don’t seem to have time to do much else. I forget what day things happened on because each day is pretty much like the last. Luckily, we’re made to keep a daily logbook, so that helps keep track of things a bit.

I didn’t really want to spend another entry talking about placement, but it looks like it’s too late for that. The main thing I wanted to mention was that I was at placement yesterday for nine and a half hours. I sat down for maybe only 15-20 minutes in my half-hour break, so that means over nine hours on my feet, running around everywhere. It was alright, though, because I made sorbolene cream from scratch, and it actually turned out ok. I was pretty amazed.

And then last night I went to a party. I’m really surprised that I’m not more tired (physically). Maybe I’ve just gone beyond exhaustion, or maybe the soreness is still subdued by the adrenalin (for now), but I feel like I’m doing alright (as long as I don’t have to move too much).

There’s nothing I would like more, though, than to get a solid eight hours of sleep tonight. Well, I guess lunch would be good right about now, too. Breakfast was 8-ish hours ago, but I really don’t feel hungry. I don’t know where my appetite’s gone, but if you find it, please return it. For now, I’ll make do with what I have and go find something to eat.
