Five-Hundred Word Challenge 561: Combat the Need to Sleep

Woke up at 3:30 this morning. Woke up Bren. We got ready. Had coffee. made him something to eat. Left the house. It was cold. Saw a sponge next to the nature strip.

We left earlier than what was suggested. Turned out to be a good thing as the bus also was early. Made for a nice connection. Got to the airport a bit earlier than expected.

Got Bren to his gate, saw him off. Now he’s somewhere in the air on his second flight; the one that is taking him to Japan.

I’ve been awake with not enough sleep for enough time today. It’;s a bit of an odd feeling. May need more coffee, but am fully aware that I need to keep a balance and keep the caffeine down.

Left the airport and made my way to the bust stop that would be the location of the bust that would take me back home would stop. Walked past wit without realising as I wasn’t exactly in its vicinity, saw the bus go past, went back, waited at the bus stop. Sat there as the sun rose but before the sunrise began. Saw the light change.

Went home and then, after ten minutes headed back out. It’s been a long day, but so far it has been a satisfying day.

I can only express that I am most certainly not looking forward to the next four(ish) hours.

Been at work for two hours as, after having breakfast with another friend I had little else to do. Could’ve gone home but that would mean just heading back out again shortly after getting there. Better to not spend more time on transport than necessary today.

Somehow going to tackle it all. Whatever “it all” is, it will be tackled in some manner. Maybe it’ll be tackled and then I will fall asleep. Can’t fall asleep yet though. Need to do a few things before tonight and need to make sure that there are things that are done, despite how few those things that are needing to be done are.

Should’ve gone to bed earlier last night, but what’s done is done and I shall do the thing and try not to sleep and oh god sleep how much I miss your gentle protection right now.

Struggling to do anything, but will get there. Need to get there. Need to be tall today. Glad to have seen Bren off. Glad that he’s off to have some fun. Need to translate that into focus for getting things out of the way.

Combat the need to sleep is the mission of statement in which the mission’s statement is as such.

What a sentence.

Will get there, somehow. Somehow. Somehow. Will find a way to push on through.

Only a few more minutes to go and then I can fly on through the world of calls. No need to pass by the airport.

I wonder: was the sponge was there to assist with cleaning grass stains?

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:57:21

Certainly hasn’t helped with the writing of this piece of text.
I’ll blame the impending shift of work.

Written at work.
