31 questions | march 20.

March 20
What’s one mistake you keep repeating (and repeating)?

Just one? But there are so many.

Staying up too late and sleeping in. And that’s fucking up a lot of things. And it’s probably part of why I repeat lots of other mistakes.

Seems like it should be an easy fix, right? Get my ass up early one day and I’ll be tired so I’ll go to sleep earlier that night… repeat. Unfortunately, while I have had plenty of days where I’ve had to get up early, I still manage to stay up at least three hours later than I should. And so… repeat.

I’ve even gone so far as to get up and drive my kids to school only to go back to sleep when I get home. And… repeat.

Yesterday I took a freaking nap. What am I? Two?

p.s. — Speaking of mistakes, I recently had a conversation about my place in my family. It’s kinda related. I have three sisters: the oldest, the youngest, the favorite, and the fuck-up. Guess which one I am…

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Oh man sleeping habits are the worst!! But naps are scientifically proven to be very beneficial so take them! Its better to maintain a steady sleep schedule and nap if you need extra sleep then to over sleep one day and try to sort it out on other days 😉😉

    I’m always promising myself that I’ll get up early so that I’m not rushing for that first meeting, then inevitably I’ll look at my phone, go down a rabbit hole of Twitter or something, and end up slapping on the mascara right before the Zoom call!
