Open Letter To The People Who Are Always Tired

We all accept the sleep we think we deserve

Open Letter To The People Who Are Always Tired

I am writing this as I am feeling tired. No, I am not writing this because I am “just tired.” I am actually writing this when I am really exhausted.

I remember when a typical excuse is because we are “just tired,” without really giving a logical explanation to support our excuse to get out of anything. If you are anything like me, you will understand what being tired is like.

Tired is the emotion when you have been out of the house all day. Tired is when you shut off the alarm clock and sleep tracker only to sleep a little longer. Tired is when you tend to fall asleep while you want to spend some time reading in a comfortable spot. Tired is feeling drained of all the tasks that has to be done and having to remember every single thing before you leave to go anywhere. No matter the age we are or the places we go, we find ourselves to be tired.

No matter what we feel, we still manage to do things. Even on the days when it feels like Wednesdays or any day that feels terribly long, we still keep going no matter where we are.

It is no easy feat to have a back to back schedule and also manage having a job. My spoons are out at the moment, and here I am writing this. When I am feeling so tired, and it is so early in the night to think of crawling back into bed, I rely on laughter to keep staying awake a little longer. Even if I am completely finished for the day, I do have to think about what is going on in the next day because every minute counts.

The struggle of having a chronic disability, and living with spoons, is exactly that: having to manage how my time will be dedicated to something. If it is a good day, it would be manageable to accomplish anything and everything. If it is a bad day, a lot of being snarky will come to anyone’s way.

Despite how much we do each day and accomplish each week, we need to realize that we can only do what we can handle. We also need to remember that we can treat ourselves to some sleep when the weekend comes. Sure, we might complain or procrastinate, but when we are truly feeling so tired, we can feel it and show it.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university.
