Kirti's General Life UpdatesCategory: (general)

Written at four in the morning, so if it seems incoherent, it is.

I haven't slept for more than two hours at a time in two weeks. I think. It's pretty
hard to remember anything longer than a few days ago to be honest.

I've been eating one meal a day for... Awhile. Since summer school started.

There is a heat wave where I live which contributes to why I haven't really been
eating or sleeping.

Summer school! Didja know that all those stereotypes about summer school are wrong?
The people are mostly your typical weirdos. Mind you, easily 40% of my school is
You've got people who just wanted to go from B to an A, people taking extra classes
to graduate early, and everyone else failed out of laziness because they were so far
ahead that the curriculum bored them.

Oh! And apart from me doing well in each of my classes - an early Health class and
retaking Algebra- I've made a new friend.

Her name is Kelsey. Her school is a couple towns over, but my school has the best
summer program so she's here for now.

Bad news about summer school is that I'm being expected to sleep from 11pm to 6am.
I'm used to sleeping from 3am to 3pm.
I haven't been sleeping.

When my alarm finally tells me it's okay to leave my room, I stagger about getting
ready and bike a mile through a heat wave to get to school.

Then summer school ends and I bike home and sleep until mom goes home to lecture me
about maintaining a regular sleep schedule.

I find time to go on the internet at some point because I love you guys!

Oh oh oh! And my step dad is in the hospital. Again. Diverticulitis reversal

And I finally got real running shoes. Unfortunately I haven't trained at all. So I'm
behind schedule by 60-100 miles. I'm doomed.

What else.... I'm stuck on page four of my story, but I've been thinking about it
constantly, so my writers block should be breaking any day now.
Algebra class and sleep deprivation have always been sources of great inspiration for
me in the past.

I'm probably going to developed a caffeine addiction within the next two to four
days, also.

Uhh, I think that's it. No wait. I'm forgetting something. 
*insert several minutes of thought here*
I almost remember, but I haven't slept in thirty hours, so I give up

what are you supposed to be training for? you want to run a marathon
or what?

exercise will help you get more regular sleep....but some of us just
dont sleep what are considered "normal" hours... so long as you arent
sleep deprived and able to concentrate and all its probalby ok...but
do keep in mind that some studies show an increased risk for things
like diabetes and other health ills for peoplewho dont get at least 7
hrs a night of sleep..

That doesn't help me remember though. I'm sorry.

Cross Country team. I'm meant to have been running four to seven miles
a day, every day, for the past two and a half months. I couldn't
though because doing cross country without actual running shoes
damages your feet, and I didn't have the money to get proper shoes.
Damn unemployment.

Oh yeah. The ammount of sleep I'm not getting is ruining my health,
but I can't sleep, so until I adjust to the schedule change... *shrug*

oh ok...

actually i saw this one episode of Real Sports wiht Bryant Gumbel and
there was a guy on there talking about barefoot running and how its
better and he studied these peeps in africa who run barefoot cause
they dont have shoes of course..and how like when you run barefoot you
have to place the weight first on the front of the foot and toes that
strike first and how thats a much less shocking to the joints and
overall better but that running shoes make us strike our heels first
which puts all the weight centrally up the leg..and so on.. it was
very interesting..

And you were bothering me about sunscreen! 
*insert rant on the importance of sleep while trying to not sound like
a total hypocrite*

I actually have been sleeping on that schedule, except I get up at
five-thirty so I can watch Handy Manny have more time to get

My coaches do stress how important it is to keep our weight on our
toes while going up hills, but I run on my toes anyway. Actually, I
walk on my toes too. My older sister says I walk like a velociraptor.

Well, sunscreen is important! You've got to be safe outdoors!

oh, happy tears...
here's a tip: instead of trying to sleep, do something repetitive in
your head, like knitting, crochet, etc.
the worse that can happen from that is you find a pair of socks when
your done.

Your life sounds so nice.
Even with the sleep thing.
