I finally set up a journal like I’ve been meaning to forever. I currently don’t have access to MySQL here, so I found a simple weblog project that doesn’t require a database. Now I just need to make some graphics for this, but that’s not a problem.
What is a problem on the other hand is my current lack of sleep. I seem to be utterly nocturnal. In itself that isn’t a problem- I wouldn’t mind getting a night shift job (I wouldn’t mind getting ANY Computer Job right now). The problem is I don’t wake up on a normal day until just before it gets dark out. Then I don’t get tired until about noon. After a few days of this, eventually the necessity to do something, when it is actually still daylight arises. So that day, instead of going to sleep around noon, I stay up until I get too tired to stay up anymore. This wrecks havoc with my general sense of my position in the space/time continuum. If it weren’t for my computer clock I would have no idea what day of the week it is.
I stayed up all night last night so I could go to the store with my dad today (technically yesterday, now). We went early and finished the shopping, then we came back and I had coffee. I got tired at about 4 PM, so I went to sleep for a while. Then at 6 PM I woke up and ate dinner. I’ve been up ever since. For some reason, I’m not that tired (but I am rambling incoherently) maybe because I’ve been working with super-happy-fun HTML and PHP stuff. I never seem to get tired when I start programming, that most likely explains my strange hours. Once I run out of things to program, I sleep.
Yes, that rambling was (mostly) intentional. I just decided that since this is the first entry in my journal. I should write something more meaningful than “I got a webjournal… um… yeah.” I also thought it prudent to use this extra info area, just to try it out (although only people who feel like commenting will ever see this anyway, so it’s basically useless).
Good night, morning, whatever.
