Of sleep deprivation and racial diversity

Sleep is good.I haven’t been able to have my afternoon nap for the past 2 days, and I must say that I am noticing some adverse side effects. I have been exhausted by 10pm both nights. I can’t think as clearly. I am sluggish during the day. I feel lethargic towards many a thing as well. This is not good.

Happily, I have tomorrow off from work. I called my boss today and said, “I’m not coming in tomorrow.” He sounded none too happy, but that is secondary concern to me at this point. I am only about 1/2 way done planning the big teaching for tomorrow night… the “Great Dichotomy” one. My lack of sleep is making it much more difficult to think through what I want to say and it is taking a great deal longer than it should. And I need to get the notes finished, the outlines written, the slides created, the object lessons prepped, and the photocopies made before 5pm tomorrow. i also want to run to the Apple store to pick something up. These were the reasons for my calling out of work. I still must wake early as to be able to get all of it done, but I shall remain in a state of sleep until at least 8am, as compared to the alarm’s normal first sounding at 5:45. For that I am happy.

William Michael Hartz's Facebook profileIn other news, I recently joined Facebook. I like that it is a more professional social network, and also i am anticipating a mass migration from MySpace to it in the near future… just from rumors I am hearing. So I wanted to be prepared in advance. Anyway, since Facebook is based on school, and my school, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, was in Newark, NJ, I am a part of the Newark, NJ Network. There’s only about 6 or 7 people in it, and when I looked at it I noticed something. It actually made me laugh. Made me feel good. I noticed that I’m the only white guy in the network. Of course this is no shock, being that it is a Newark network. But still, I am not sure why, but it made me smile.

Maybe it’s just the exhaustion talking.

Either way, I take my leave, I think I will soon sleep, and start typing again early tomorrow morning.

How shall we end this? A witty comment or remark? A deep insight? No, I have it. A benediction. Yes, let us try this…

May the grace of our Lord be with you now and always, and may you stay faithful until he comes. Amen.
