I am seriously messed up, with sleep. I fell asleep at 9:30 in the morning and woke up at 3 pm. In my defense, I was up all night scanning in what amounts to 2400 pictures onto the computer. I made digital copies of all the pictures our family has ever taken - it was my mother's belated christmas gift. I promised her I would do it, so last night I finally mustered up the motivation to accomplish that feat. However, I am now screwed with my energy levels in the daytime. And my asthma and allergies have been acting up. It feels like the roots of all of the hair on my body are sore. Each time I get goosebumps, it's painful. I can't walk in straight lines and my vision is blurring in and out. Earlier this evening I was on the phone with the guy who repaired my dented flute, and the whole time I was stuttering and tripping over everything I had to say. It was probably the most embarrassing conversation I've ever had! Afterwards, my mom, Mariel, and I all had a good laugh. I really have poor control over my body when I'm sleep deprived!
Anyway, in a few hours I leave for Utah. I'm looking forward to that elevator ride to my floor of the towers. Seeing everybody again. I'll probably make a trip to the music building to re-stock my locker with piccolos and flutes and sheet music and various other supplies. No matter what, though, I am GOING TO BED early tonight!
