I think I'm more tired then I ever have been in my life. I'm not sure if it is the second child, the extra tutoring hours, or just because I turned 30 this year. Whatever it is, I'm going to soon require a softer desk at work.
When I taught high school, I occasionally had a student fall asleep. This could be somewhat embarrassing to the student, depending on what I allowed the other students around him to do to him, or the amount of drool coming out the corner of his mouth. However, I don't think that would compare with falling asleep at work. Let's say, for the sake of argument, I was allowed to keep my job. There is no way my fellow employees would ever let me forget that I fell asleep on the job.
"Would you see if Aaron can take a call or if he is sleeping again."
A promotion would be out of the question. "Well, Aaron, your marketing plan brought in 1.5 million in added revenue this year. Your organizational skills have greatly improved. But 7 years ago you fell asleep at your desk..."
Thankfully, so far I have been able to up my caffeine intake to make it through the day. Yesterday for instance I had to tutor from 9:00pm to Midnight. By 11:00 I had ingested 3 cups of doubleshot coffee, and one Red Blitz Vault (R). Of course that meant that to get to this point today, I had to drink 3 pots of coffee and 4 cans of Vault and 6 of the over-priced candy bars the Christian school is selling. I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
