10:45 PM

Man I am sleepy. I am so very tired. I did have another dream last night though:

I dreamt that I had this full body disguise that allowed me to look exactly like a classmate I had in high school. He was just some random guy in one of my classes, but the disguise allowed me to become him.

The real him was in another building dormitory apparently, and I was assigned to this one dormitory at a corner of a high floor, so I think we were all in college. I went into that dormitory in my disguise as him and everything, and people recognized me, and I would respond as if I were him.

It was pretty cool, I did a lot of things that I don't do normally as him, since I felt like there would be less harm in doing as much. I got to talk to a lot of girls who thoguht i was him for examplle.

And basically it just felt like life was infinitely easier being him than being me.

With that, I wish to go to sleep. Work was long and hard. I did a good amount of work. I tried to solve some problems, I figured some new things out, overall I thought it was a good learning experience.

I wish I had more energy and time to devote to studying, as I do have assignments due tomorrow. I am certain I will drop out of one of my classes now, as I definitely do not have enough time to do them both. I can't even focus on one. I have a hard time even focusing.

Right now I'm sleepy, I just came back from walking outside for nearly two hours. I walked about a mile or so away from home, to this one point on the sidewalk where on the road, there was this metal thing. I had ran over this metal thing several times in my car, and each time it made this loud noise with the metal clanking on the ground, and I had no idea what I was running over. It felt like it was just this flat metal plate, that's what it looked like as I drove over it, and since it had been on the road there for a long time now, maybe a few weeks, I decided to be the person that went and cleaned it up since it was obvious no one else was going to.

I also had the advantage of living close by. Most people that drive by this road, don't live anywhere close, and since I lived within walking distance, sure I had to walk for about 10-20 minutes to reach it, I decided to be the one to get it. So there I stood, on the side walk, shining my flashlight at this metal thing on the ground, there were cars going by the roads to my left and right, and as I crossed to reach the middle of the road I knew I could have been run over at anytime.

I sprinted though, and then I crouched down right in front of the metal thing, and I tried to pick it up. Whoa it was heavy. I didn't have any time to look at what it was, I just crouched down, picked it up with one hand since my other hand was carrying my phone and glasses, and darted back to the sidewalk to safety, thankfully there were no cars nearby as honestly, I don't think I would have had enough time to run to the sidewalk if there really were cars on this road, as the speed limit is pretty high, and this metal object was going to drag me down. Thankfully there were no cars for the 20 or so seconds I went there to pick it up, it was this rare grace period, as this road is actually very busy.

And the plate was in the middle of the road, right between the opposite directions of the road. So there were four lanes, two lanes going one way and the other two going the other way. The metal object was in the middle, obviously closer to one side as I would run over it with my wheels, and it was right in front of this island. So of course had any car come by, I could have actually been in the direct line of their wheels, and since I was crouching and hard to see, I had a very good chance of being run over. Plus I wasn't really looking up and around, so honestly, any car could have come by at any moment and I would've not even noticed it.

I survived, grabbed that metal thing, ran out of the way, and I stopped at the sidewalk to observe what it was. It was exactly what I thought, it was this flat metal plate, squarish, painted light blue, with one side cut off and jagged and covered with rust. It was heavy to carry, it might have been around 10-15 pounds, which isn't that heavy if all that weight were concentrated to a barbell, but it was this metal plate, and that weight was spread out. So it was definitely heavy to carry, and it was big, the side of my body.

Since I got it this far, I decided to carry it back with me to throw it away in the recycling bin close to where I live, which was going to take me 20-30 minutes to walk to. And so I walked, this very far distance, carrying this heavy metal thing. Onlookers must've been stunned, I honestly just wanted to recycle this thing already. When I got to the trash area, I wondered whether I should throw it away or recycle it, but I looked it up online that metal was very recyclable, and so I just left it in the recycling area.

I had walked just around 8200 steps at that point, not including the places and parks and other areas I went to before going to that metal plate, in comparison actually, the walk to the metal plate was much shorter than the distance to the other places I went to. I had another 1800 steps to go, so I walked 1800 more steps, I went to a far place, and then went back. So here I am back.

I am now very sleepy. I am so tired. So very tired. I think I'm juts going to sleep now, because I honestly can't even move.

--Questions About Today--
Was today a productive day? Yes
What did I do well on? I went to work early (around 7:30 AM) and got a good amount of work done. It was all just bug fixing again, but I read through a good amount of code, understood some bits here and there, so overall I think that experience was productive (although not as productive I think as going through a course or tutorial). Then I walked 10k steps outside today, and I picked up that metal thing, and put it in recycling.
What did I do badly on? When I got home I wasted a few hours watching videos while eating again. I don't think I eat enough, which is why I feel sleepy and tired, or maybe it's because I'm sedentary for the majority of the time. I stand up just a few times a day, and the rest of that day I'm either sitting or lying down.
What can I do better tomorrow? I can get a better night sleep by trying to sleep earlier, maybe around 10 or 11 AM. I can stand up every 20 minutes so that I get a moderate amount of exercise in throughout the day. I can decide not to take the hour break from work in order to just lie around or take a nap. I can instead stand around, walk around, or just take a tutorial course online. When I get home from work, I can eat, take a nap, and then walk outside, without watching any videos, and when I get back, I can put in full effort towards studying.
Did you take a selfie for the day? Yes
Did you upload the previous day's journal entry? No
Did I eat just around 2000 calories today? Yes
Rate how satisfied you were with today: 6/10
Why this rating? Overall I thought it was a good day. I got a sufficient amount of work and other things done, got some exercise in. I did not get to study any of my courses though, and I fell asleep tired, I did "that" for some reason before going to sleep even though it was early or while attempting to sleep, which might have drained me more for the next day (that's when I'm writing this now and I am still sleepy).
