To set the scene, it’s about 4:00 AM on a Thursday; I am neither tired nor awake, but rather in a limbo state of energy. I had just finished binge-watching anime when I finally look at the clock. I decide it is time to turn in for the night. With a sudden stroke of inspiration, I decide to set an alarm for the morning to wake up motivated. Having learned from my own personal experience, six hours is usually the perfect amount of sleep for me. The sun rises and my alarm sets off and I emerge. Feeling good about the new day I know exactly what I must do. Too bad I shut off all of my alarms and went back to bed for another five hours.
…And thus the cycle continues.
