These strange things called "mornings" are actually pretty interesting. ;)
In an effort to reset my sleep cycle, I slept at 11:30 PM last night - or tried to, at least. After tossing and turning for a while (darn cough!), I eventually managed to sleep.
Worked out great. I woke up for some unknown reason at 4. Went back to sleep, woke up at 7:30. Managed to get myself out of bed without too much fuss. Had a leisurely breakfast and another run-through of my goals. Headed to the lab to work on my research proposal.
It's kinda odd that I spend more time revising my proposal than actually doing research. There's something a little wrong there. Must work on research more.
... After I clear the rest of the hurdles on my horizon...
