Why we need to Sleep?

I am getting old~>_<~ !!! Why do I say that? Because my body simply refuse to let me sleep until the sun is high up in the sky anymore! No matter how late I slept the night before, 2-3am, I will still wake up latest by 10.30am. In fact, around 10am, my mind has also ready start to become conscious of the bright room and whatever sounds the early birds (pun intended) decided to chirp away about. Not sure what the birds are so happy about. Nothing is more blissful and sleep till unknown time of the day!

I remember when I was still in college, I even skipped my 8am classes just so that I can sleep in. My housemate taking the same course as me would knock on my door and try to wake me up. I will always make sure that I locked the door of course and totally ignore the knock. After a few more knocks that get louder each time, she would give up and went to wait for the bus that takes us to our classes on her own. I was pretty lucky because this kind soul willingly share her notes with me after she came back. Of course, that was after a short lecture from her about sleeping early and waking up early.

If I have my way, I would have NOT go for the 8am classes at all. But I guess the college administrators are aware of poor souls like us need some push to make sure that we discipline ourselves and come to class. I guess they figured that people like that that is away from home for the first time is in need of good guidance and nurturing. So, they set up the rule of must attending minimum x percentage of the class or else eventhough we submitted our assignments on time or get As in exams, we will still flunk the class. An extremely cruel punishment if you ask me.

I utterly believes that as a young active growing mind person like myself then, it is very important to make sure that a network is build with people from all over the world. After all, the wise ones are always preaching about broadening the horizon and so on and on and on. And what better way to do that other than going on the internet to one of those chat rooms for exchange of ideas and knowledge! Hence, how can they expect someone like me who sleeps at 3-4am the night before (ermm..morning?) wakes up again at 7am to go to an 8am class??? Some people, can be so inconsiderate~ (BLUEK!! hahahaha!)

Anyway, back to my dilemma. I really wish I can sleep pass 10am and wake up with the smile on my face, knowing with glee that I let my body rest all it want. I wonder if it is because the room is too warm for to contemplate sleeping in. I wonder if I can persuade babe to get an aircon immediately when we move to our new place. Ppsttt....we might be moving sooner than planned. Babe and I have a little secret project going on. Wont revel too much about it now since some of you actually know babe and I. Suffice to say that I am very very excited at the prospect of having a place of our own without the heartache related to money! *grin grin grin grin grin*

Sigh..yar I heard that kids and sleep dont go together. Maybe I can pursuade babe to be the one to wake up when the baby cries in the middle of the night next time?
