Its rage knoweth no limits.
Sleeping in is hard work, let me tell you! All I wanted was to shift my hours slightly towards the night, so I could still be up and active during west-coast hours. It’s just two or three hours later than what you’d consider an average healthy sleeping schedule, how bad can it be? Well, it’s not winter anymore. The sun is rising earlier and earlier, and it’s waking me up.
As romantic as that sounds, woken by sunrise, it really isn’t. The timing is way off! I want to lay in bed and let mind and body take a well-deserved break, but the bright morning sunshine hitting my window at a perfect 90° angle tells them not to. And even though they need their rest, they refuse to take it.
My curtains have a black layer to help block the sun, but it’s not of much use when the rays are striking them directly. Maybe I need to just board it shut, banish all light from my room forever.
And then emulate west-coast timezone lighting using smart lightbulbs.
