Five-Hundred Word Challenge 615: Sleep Comes First

So early on in the year and it already feels like it’s been a bit of a drag. Three days of being alive and three days stretched out across the continuum of time and space, seeming to go off in all directions, yet never seeming to reach some sort of end. It all just keeps on going on where it can and where it can go is everywhere, which of course means that it all overlaps on itself and creates layers far thicker than anyone could ever hope to achieve through regular means; as such, many of us have been hornswaggled and we’re not that far into the year.

I’m not sure as to how far that should go, but to be honest, it has been a long and short three days.

The best part of it was doing nothing, and also sitting at a pond at The Royal Botanic Gardens (Sydney edition), trying to get a photo of fish as they leapt out of the water for a reason that I’m not sure of, but am still concerned nonetheless.

That didn’t turn out as I had hoped, but I did get a bunch of photos of splashes, and that’s pretty alright by me. Well, at this point it is as I haven’t been getting out enough with the camera; something that I hope to turn around this year as I push to do more photography of both the recreational and professional varieties.

Perhaps that will be a thing that happens. Perhaps it will not It is far too early to tell and there are other things that I need to worry about at the moment, such as finishing off all of the reviews I need to finish off that are sitting in my backlog. Hopefully I’ll be able to get through them all before the end of January. There is a chance that that will not happen, but there is also a chance that that will be what happens and I will be set for February. It is a little too early to tell at this stage.

I imagine that if I work on getting more sleep I’ll be able to put myself into a position of rest and thus a position of a more functional mind. That is the hope, at least.

So, I guess sleep comes first, then work. Perhaps that is the order in which I should have been doing everything in the first place. Perhaps. Not entirely sure. Seems a little suspect to me.

This year is going to be a year. Not much has changed by the numbers changing as far as I’m aware. Of course, other than a bunch of expected things I’m aware of, this could be a position of ignorance. Still, this is the way I need to treat it at the moment as there isn’t much of an excuse for me to not work hard.

Well, unless I decide that it is, in which case, I still should work hard.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:59:01

Got a bit fantastic, then brought it back down to earth.

Wasn’t feeling too whimsical. Perhaps it is the lack of sleep.

Written at home.
