Conflict is something that I have a problem with…in fact, I’m pretty sure everyone who has problems has a problem with conflict. I realize the redundancy in the preceding statement, but it’s totally true.
Tuesday is the longest day of my week. I start classes at 10:00AM and end at 8:00PM. Yet, last night, I was wondering how on earth I was going to be able to slump my way through today.
For the past four days or so, my roommate has been staying up until three in the morning doing homework. I had told her that I could go to sleep even if she had her light on…well, I thought I could. But truth is, I can’t. So I’ve been up until 3:00AM tossing and turning, only going to sleep when her light is finally turned off.
My body is yelling at me about only getting five hours of sleep every night, yet I won’t suppress it’s cries with caffeine because that would just be stupid. I can only imagine what I would be like on coffee:
Professor: “Hunter, would you mind explaining Darwin’s theory of evolution?”
finchesonanislandhaddifferentbeaksdoesnotmeani’mamonkey!!” *pass out on floor due to caffeine crash and fall asleep in a puddle of drool.*
Anyway! I think I’ll just bide my time and try to pretend that I’m not as tired as I feel, if that’s possible. Besides, Thursday is almost here and I get to sleep in on that day, so I can catch up on my hours at the Mattress Warehouse in the town of Slumberville then.
Meanwhile I have to somehow figure out how God forgets our sins but then disciplines us for our sins so that I can write out the bible study homework for tomorrow. I’m also craving red velvet cake smothered in cream cheese frosting from Connecticut Muffin and a mug of hot chocolate.
I guess these things will just have to wait until tomorrow.
