Nothing really new to report today. I am already becoming accustomed to my self-imposed curfew. The real test would be how I do tomorrow morning. I need to be awake by 5AM and it will be the first time in this challenge when I couldn’t just wake up when I was good and ready. An alarm will be involved. If I wake up without hesitation, this this endeavor would be completely worth it.
I’m going to pad my windows so that I don’t have to listen to them get rattled by the strong winds.
Side note: ensure that your sleeping environment is without distractions. Whether it be rattling windows or a neighbor’s light shining through your window, find solutions. By the way, for rattling windows, I shove something like cotton balls (they are easy to shove in with tweezers) into the four corners of the moving portion of the window to keep it from rattling. And for annoying neighbors who leave their bright backyard light on all night, invest in blackout shades or curtains. It will be worth every penny.
I didn’t have the most restful sleep. I woke up once because the wind was so loud outside. The windows didn’t rattle but the wind itself was menacing. It sounded as if it could cause some destruction. Then I later found out that we had a tornado warning. In conclusion, I’m still tired.
