Insomniac

I’ve been having some trouble sleeping lately. I know the reason and if you have read the past few blog entries you would know that I have a reason for losing sleep as well. But the very fact that I have it is surprising to me. For years I have always felt that I slept too little, that I went to bed too late and that woke up too late. My friend Cathy was always after me to change my lifestyle, to go to bed earlier and get up earlier. It was not possible then due to my work hours which change periodically and that I was so used to it as well.

For the past one month I have been trying to get more sleep by going to bed earlier and to get up at a more respectable time. It has been a struggle and I was giving up hope. But now, I just can’t sleep much. I kinda feel sleepy at around midnight but that is the time I watch tv (reruns of Seinfeld & Friends) and I try not to miss them since they make me laugh and for that hour, I am not miserable. But by the time they get over, I am not sleepy anymore. I head back to my room with a bottle of water and wonder when I can catch some zzzzs.

I have started reading at night till I fall asleep. And guess which novel it is? Insomnia by Stephen King! The irony is not lost on me. Really, I read a few pages before going to bed. But I am waking up earlier than usual. I keep the alarm for 8:30 am but I am awake by either 7:15 or 7:30.

5 Questions – The Interview

I volunteered to answer any random 5 questions, sent to me by Tina

, someone whose blog I read quite often. Well, since I asked for it, here goes:

1. If you had to keep only three albums for the rest of your life, what would they be and why?

This is a tough one. Since I rip all my albums into mp3s and listen to them as I like. Hmmm, but I suppose “Disc 1: All Their Greatest Hits 1991-2001” by the Barenaked Ladies, “Mirrorball” by Sarah McLachlan & “Rearviewmirror: Greatest Hits 1991-2003” by Pearl Jam. As for the why? – Those are my two fav bands and my fav singer. Pearl Jam makes me think, the Barenaked Ladies make me laugh and Sarah makes me cry.

2. Do you have a small or large immediate family? Does everyone get along?

Small and no, definitely not.

3. Have you travelled the world or stayed close to home? Where have you been? Where would you go if you went? And why?

Stayed close to home. I was born in Kuwait and lived there till I was 11 years old. I have been to Bahrain and the UK (both don’t count since I was very small and I can’t remember it). I live in India. I would love to go to Canada – for the hockey, beer & great Canadian music.

4. Left-handed or right-handed?

Right-handed. Silly question compared to the others, I feel.

5. What are your current computer specs? Operating software? Hard drive size?

Ok, 256 RAM, 80 GB HD, 17in monitor, AMD Athelon. Using Windows XP.

To play along…
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”

2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
