I love math and science! In fact I love Math and Science so much I ended up switching careers from Higher Ed to working in a lab. I do science things all day, they challenge my mind and I absolutely love it!
But.. Yes there is a but. Working in a lab means being on my feet most of the day. I easily log in 10000+ steps at work. That’s without adding a single step of actual exercise. At the end of the day,I’m beat and my mind is whirling with all that science stuff which makes falling asleep a little challenging.
And then, of course, there’s the Internet, Netflix, and for me, chronic insomnia. These are like literally the “axis of evil” to quote one of our past Presidents. Add all these up and you get that equation above. Exhaustion + sleep deprivation = what? More sleep deprivation and exhaustion squared?!
Of course I am exaggerating some because I’d be like dead rght? But I’m happy to report that I am still very much alive and about to start a new Netflix series! And maybe I will fall asleep,. In fact most likely , I will fall asleep at some point. Intermittently mostly, but it will be enough for me to be functional; and live, love and laugh another day.
And hey, that’s pretty good right?
