Friday Five: Sleep Deprivation

When you’re having trouble staying awake, what are some things you do to make sure you don’t drift off to sleep?
I drink a Red Bull.

What’s most likely to cause you a prolonged period of not enough sleep?
A crazy bout of creativity or a big worry. A blast of “mania” in which my mind is racing with ideas and things to do but knowing I need to rest–it’s a vicious cycle.

When you’re going through a prolonged period of not enough sleep, what parts of your daily
routine are likely to change, and how?

I’ll try to get a nap in but if I can’t then I get stressed and my eyes get all grainy.

Who in your life seems regularly to have not enough sleep?
Out of everyone I know, it’d probably be me. I am a night owl, but I have to force myself not to sleep during the day or evening when I am desperate for a nap. OR I do actually get to sleep at a decent hour only to be awakened by the damn cat wailing for no reason.

In what ways does your personality change when you go through a prolonged period of not enough sleep?
I get either cranky and irritable, or extra loopy and silly.
