The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Lack of Sleep Edition

Over the past week, I’ve had the worst case of insomnia I’ve had since my college years. I simply cannot get to sleep before one or two in the morning, and during the last few hours of being awake, I’m basically useless. I can’t write anything coherent and if I read, I barely remember what I’ve read.

Mostly, I’ve been filling those hours with mindless household tasks and some simple gameplaying (leveling up characters in RPGs, mostly). I’ve also left some notes for future ideas, but most of those are incoherent.

Insomnia, when will you go away?
