Sleeping Damage

Last night I slept for 14 hours straight. I haven't done that for a long time. In fact, I didn't even know I was capable of that. I usually start to get restless after about 8 hours (I actually can't even remember the last time I got 8 hours of sleep in a row). I guess staying up all night, for two nights in a row, will do the trick. While I must admit it was incredibly refreshing and I feel like a new man today, I'm afraid of the damage that was done. I lead the kind of lifestyle where I can't just take a day off. There is no such thing as a day off unless previous arrangements have been made.

First item of damage was The Hive. And actually this could potentially have been a two fold hurt to everyone. I was supposed to run The Hive last night from 8-12. I set my alarm on full blast for 7:30pm. I'm not exactly sure what happened. A person needs to be really out to have a radio blaring in their ear and not even notice it. Once again, that hasn't happened to me for a long time. I'm not saying that I don't sleep in. I actually sleep in almost every day. But I am aware that the radio alarm is going off. I've been trying to get a hold of Adam all morning to see what happened. My best guess is that he just stayed and covered my shift. Secondly, we had a Hive management meeting last night. I suppose it's not a huge deal for me to miss that because I've been working on more long term projects, but I still need to set short term goals with my partners and show my support to them.

The second item of damage could possibly be a bit more hurtful than the first to myself. I was supposed to call Rachel last night! We're going out tonight with Adam and Holly and I was supposed to call and chat with her and let her know what was going on tonight. Which coincidently, I don't even know because I was supposed to call Holly and plan something out. Anyway, I hope Rachel doesn't completely hate me now. I really want to go out with her!
