If the difference between yesterday and today is any indication, then I think I\’m over the hump. There were only two times today when I felt like I couldn\’t stay awake. One was during a two hour meeting at church where I couldn\’t move around, speak, or interact â€“ hardly the ideal conditions for someone who\’s going through voluntary self-imposed sleep deprivation! I blanked out twice for about twenty minutes each time but nevertheless was awake for more two-thirds of the meeting. The second time was just me making a terrible choice of activity. When I woke up from my 1:00am nap, I got up and immediately started watching videos on my computer. I got nice and comfy, laid on my side, and listened to some guy from Microsoft drone on about the new Robotics Studio. It is stuff I\’m fascinated by, and I\’ve been waiting for a chance to watch this movie for weeks, but it was hardly stimulating enough to keep me awake. I quickly fell asleep and switched to something more active once I jerked awake in my seat.
