Webster In A Week: A lesson in procrastination

    After procrastinating for the entire week I was in a rush on Sunday to land a webster and complete this weeks endeavor. Unfortunately, as I learned in school, waiting until the last-minute and rushing to be done returns half-assed results. So, as you can see in yesterdays post, and video, I had not completed a webster in the good-looking fashion that I had hoped.

    When I went back out yesterday evening I viewed it as one last opportunity to land a smooth webster before the end of the week.

One Week No Seat: Day 4

At the beginning of 2011 I successfully altered my sleep schedule. It wasn’t a major change, but I was able to wake up in the morning before my alarm. I had gone from sleeping eight hours every night to sleeping for six and a half at night and 45 minutes at 5 pm. I was getting 45 minutes less sleep every day and feeling more refreshed in the morning. After a few months I switched back to an 8-hour sleep schedule because it is better suited to my life, but still occasionally nap to supplement a late night.

As this week progresses my body is forcing me to alter that timing. Because I have not been sitting to relax before bed my body took a few days to get accustomed to falling asleep quickly, but was assisted by pure exhaustion. Continue reading
