Five-Hundred Word Challenge 781: Need More Sleep

There’s something quite bland about being quite tired due to a lack of sleep. Perhaps “bland” is not the right word to use in that particular context, but I am quite tired due to a lack of sleep.

I woke up quite early. Somewhere around fifteen minutes past one in the morning. Had to get up at half past five. Ended up falling asleep for about thirty, maybe forty minutes. Woke up again about thirty minutes before the alarm went off.

Got up, got ready, headed on out. Met up with a friend. Went for a lengthy walk from around Haymarket to just past Luna Park. It was almost sixteen kilometres. It was a good walk.

Had food, came home, have been somewhat-unable to do things. Slow day after a packed morning. Feeling rather tired right now, but not as though I need sleep, though I do and I’m sure that shortly after I lie down I will pass out and have a sleep more sound than the one I had last night. Well, that’s what I hope anyway.

So the walk was good. I think I’ve already said that. There were things seen and discussions about stuff had. You could say that there was life being lived, but that of course all depends on how you want to define the act of two people going on a lengthy walk whilst talking about things.

The consumption of the breakfast after the walk was also something I’d consider to be good. It was nice and all of that other stuff that lets you know that it was nice.

The bus trip back home? That was okay. Could’ve been better. Could’ve been worse. It was somewhere in the middle and I’m fine with that, if I am to be as competently honest as I can completely be. Much shorter than I expected, however. That was a surprise which lead to feelings of slight pleasantness as it mean that I would have less time to wait to get home. Small things, but things nonetheless.

So anyway, I’m here now and as I am writing this I am feeling the fatigue which tells me that I really should lie down sooner rather than later. I need to sleep. I don’t want to sleep at my desk. Don’t want to have another night where my thoughts keep moving in some odd directions. Just want to get as much sleep in as I can before I need to wake up. It’s another early start tomorrow, but for different reasons that aren’t confirmed as of yet. Still need to get up early just in case. I’m probably going to be quite annoyed if I get up and nothing is confirmed, but sometimes that is the way things go.

On the plus side, I’m sure that I will be able to get back to sleep if nothing happens and my being awake is no longer required… I hope. If not, there will be more complaining about being tired.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:40:47

This felt like it took a really long time to write.
Certainly not my worst writing, but it could be much better.

Written at home.
