What day is it?
I don't know what happened, but somehow I'm a day off. I've been this way all week. Consider the following examples:

  • On tuesday, I left a voicemail for a friend of mine. My v-mail began like this, "Hey, it's me, it's 8:30 on wednesday... ...um... ...no, wait, it's tuesday!..."

  • Last night, thursday, I was making plans to get together with somebody. I had plans to go to my mom's house that evening, so I was trying to think of a better day. I had plans for friday, but then I thought to myself, "What about thursday?" It was weird, because I felt really really certain that I had some kind of plans for thursday, but for the life of me I couldn't think of what. I kept thinking, "Dinner with mom today, work on my paper on friday, but what about thursday, what do I have scheduled for thursday??" Finally I pulled up my calendar, and I saw Dinner With Mom, and I realized, "Ohhhhh, today is thursday!" Then I felt a little silly.

  • People keep asking me what I'm doing over the weekend, and I keep wondering why, because the weekend seems like it's still a long time from now.

  • Today somebody posted, "Happy Friday!", and I thought to myself, "Strange, she's early with that, I wonder why she thinks it's friday already."


There have been many other confusing moments, though not as major. Weird, huh? I feel utterly disconnected from the normal flow of time, and I can't seem to keep track of where I am in the week. I don't know why!

The only good thing about this is: even though I don't feel like it's friday, it is. So I don't have to work tomorrow. Yay!

I was reading your post.. and started thinking.

My brain: 'It's not Friday.. is it? Is it really Friday? Are you sure.... really sure?' Until I checked the computer's clock.

I'm outside of time totally in a strange way, not working, not going to uni. The only days that matter are the days when fantasyman is here, or if I have a rare appointment. Otherwise, the days kind of smoosh into one another.

Odd.

I think you deserve a couple days off. Take tomorrow and the next day. Go ahead! Tell your boss I said you could have the time off. *L*

Felt like I'd had four Mondays in a row, then yesterday afternoon, it all fell together and I don't have to work this weekend. Good since it's /ArmadilloCon weekend. And it's cooling off today, only a 103 degrees Farhenheit.

Cool, have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the Con! Are you going to wear a nifty costume and post pictures?
encorecrazay From: encorecrazay Date: August 8th, 2003 06:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
No costumes, it's a literary convention. Will post some pics got some at the pre-con dinner and the GOHs on the dais before Opening Ceremonies. So tired, I just came home, massive thunderstorm passing through, and we can use the rain.

Sadness on the no costumes. Hope you got enough rest that you can enjoy the rest of the con though!

Woke up around 2AM, starting thinking about con stuff (mistake), lasted until 11PM tonight, didn't get a chance to go to dinner either night, or lunch today. Got a couple of free books from the editor GOH, one is the sequel to what I am reading now,

I love that feeling when you think it's earlier in the week than it is. Every time you figure out what day it actually is, it's like a little surprise present. :D That happens to me sometimes during the school year. Unfortunately, more often than not, it feels like it's later in the week than it actually is, and then I realize I have more days of school left than I though >.<

During the summer, though, I'm just totally lost. I can figure out what day it is (stitches out tomorrow) but it takes me a little while, and not just because my brain is being sluggish! (I typed "sluggyish" in there--that reminds me I need to check my webcomics!)

Yeah, when I'm on vacation or even a long weekend, I lose track of time. It's weird to have it happen during the week though!

Yay for Sluggy!

Its probably related to your sleep problems.

Your body sleeps twice in one night and adds or subtracts a day.

Interesting point...that might be it!

I don't keep track of the time or day almost ever (I'm also one of those annoying people who are always late). I either have someone else to remind me or some machine to do it. Today, I thought it was Tuesday, so I told my boss to have a good week! haha.
