I've got a lot of good stories coming up, just not much time and no good internet connection (on purpose). For now, you can read my recent interview at Bipolar Nation. I have another interview coming up at Sole Goal.
In other news, my stalker wrote me another letter. I'll scan it and write about it soon. Adios!
YES! Thanks to JOOOOOOODI
Also, I can't imagine how we wouldn't win. I plan on running every day, lifting weights every other day, and learning 1-2 more languages by the time the show films in June.
As I wrote in a previous article, I stayed for a few days in the Luxor Penthouse Suite. It's available only to high rollers and is about 4800 sqft. Because I had previously always wanted to see the inside of one of these suites, I took a few minutes and snapped some pictures for you.
We have plans to go back to Vegas already. The Golden Nugget is going to fly us out to Vegas, and then fly to Houston via private jet to see the Miami Heat vs. Houston Rockets game. I'm not actually a basketball fan, but I like seeing games live and have always wanted to ride in a private jet. Also, the Luxor has invited us to see the Mosley vs. Vargas boxing match. Expect pictures of both, and many other events to come...
Check out the pictures of the luxor suite.
I apologize for the lack of updates over the past week. I went to Boston and Vermont and brought only my tiny laptop (Libretto U105) with me. Besides being busy spending time with my family, the keyboard of the Libretto doesn't lend itself to lengthy updates.
I did a pretty good job sticking to
The first night I slept 3 hours extra (seems like the magic number, doesn't it?), and the second night I didn't try - I overslept by almost 6 hours.
Perhaps due to my new commitment to not oversleeping, the past 2-3 days have really been great. I had a couple light sleeps in my chair (<1 hour), but the overall quality of both my naps and my awake time continues to increase.
Today, for example, I haven't been tired for the past 24 hours. My minor oversleep of 30 minutes was because I was bored and just spacing out at my computer.
Each nap I've had in the past 24 hours was accompanied by an awesome dream, and naturally ended before my alarm clock. Usually when that happens I get another quick nap in before the alarm goes off, but when I woke up early on my most recent nap, I just got out of bed. The funny thing is that I was SURE that I overslept - I felt great and it seemed like I was in bed for hours.
Been a while since my last post. I'm still on it. I had a falling out around Thanksgiving with 3-4 days of extreme oversleeping. Where I'm at right now:
I tend to oversleep daily. Just random times. Seems out of my control. Like I will sleepwalk, turn off my alarm, go back to sleep. Or randomly fall asleep at my computer, or find myself in my living room, very confused as to what's going on and what time it is.
I'm usually really exhausted and out of it at 6 am-10am, and then feel fine after 11am...almost like clockwork. But then I will oversleep at other random times when I actually feel okay, like 2pm.
My sleeping periods lately have been incredible.
Each one feels like it's many hours long, and in mot cases is actually restful. In the past few weeks I felt like most naps made me more tired if anything, so this is a nice change.
Also, every single time I sleep now, I have a vivid memorable dream that seems to take place over a long period of time. In most cases I wake up after the dream and before the alarm. Here's my latest dream:
I think it's super important to have consistent naps. For a while I was oversleeping, pushing them forward or backwards, and taking cheat naps. I didn't realize until now that before I started doing that I was waking up without my alarm two out of three times. Since becoming inconsistent I NEVER woke up without my alarm. For the past 3-4 days I have cut out cheat naps and been scheduling my naps more regularly, and have found that I wake up naturally more often.
Also, when I was inconsistent I would never feel more refreshsed after a nap... I would only become more awake during an awake cycle. Now I am feeling refreshed after naps too.
So here's a weird one for you...
I've decided to cut out cheat naps. I don't think they help, and I can stand cutting them out.
4:25am - woke up from my 4:00 nap
