I took a nap the other day around 7 or 8pm; I don’t remember the time because I was nearly at stage 4 of the itis. My speech was slurred along with my blurred vision, and I knew if I didn’t walk back to my bed, I would have ended up sleeping on a concrete pillow. So I tried to focus as I teeter-tottered back to my bed and put this itis to rest. Finally I reached my destination and my face went crashing into the pillows and my body followed right behind.
When I woke up, I thought it was time to get ready for work (as I often do when I go to sleep early) but it turned out it was only 1AM. I thought “damn this itis”. The interruption of my sleep was irreversible so I gave up after an hour of trying by staring at the back of my eyelids. I knew I was going to be up for a while so I wanted to spend my time productively. I snatched up my Saturday night special (external hard drive) and laptop, and began to sift through old photos and see what I might have overlooked in the past.
I found a good batch of photos that stood out to me and I did some retouching. It’s always interesting what you miss the first time around or don’t deem good enough to edit. I’m pretty satisfied with what I ended up with during my battle with insomnia, and that is all that matters.
