This is the story of me ready to fall asleep when suddenly a notification wakes me up.

I grab the phone to put it on silence, and there it is, a notification of an email about some new stories available in medium … Should I go back to sleep? Nah, just go Pedro, open the app, it’s only going to be a couple of minutes, damn brain.

A couple of minutes, ha! I should not trust my digital self, many minutes later I’m still here, not reading, writing something for the sake of getting less hours of sleep.

Now I’m thinking that maybe I should just put the phone down and stop writing … well I need only a couple more minutes to finish so let’s keep this going, because as soon as I finish I’m going to click publish and I’ll go back to sleep, mmm could be true but I feel that I will regret this decision as soon as my phone reminds me that I need to wake up in a couple of hours.

Well and here I am, I click publish but I did not like what I wrote, go Pedro, copy the article, remove the old one, create a new one, add more things, damn, english as a second language is a pain and does not play well with an obsession to make it perfect, perfect for whom? For my brain, it’s all about my brain.

What about me regretting going to sleep so late? Well who knows, maybe I won’t regret this, sometimes with only a couple of hours of sleep I wake up more energized than with 8 straight sleep hours, yes, I know that you know me and yes, I can be even more energized that you have ever seen me, it happens, some times, but going back to the answer, there’s no sleepy morning that a good coffee can not fix, so who cares …
