[Written this morning when LJ was being a little poop. I apologise if this new phrase in my vocabulary offends anyone; it reminds me of old times and makes me smile. I'm not sure why 'poop' sounds endlessly worse than 'poo', either, but it may just be that I'm more used to 'poo' now since I've been in the UK.]

I was going to go to sleep at a responsible time and wake up early (for me) Wednesday to get a head start on really organising my exam revision.

But then, theeeen, Battlestar Galactica had to go and ruin everything.

Roberts asked me at nigh-1am if I wanted to watch 'some BSG'. I agreed to this, of course, because who turns down an offer to watch BSG? And what student in this household goes to sleep before 2am if he or she doesn't have to be awake super-early the next day (and sometimes even then)?

We realised that we were on episode 8. We watched 3 episodes (and, mind, they're 45 minutes each). Then we realised we were so close to finishing the first series and only had 3 left, the last 2 of which were a double-hitter ('to be continued...') so we set ourselves to finishing the first season.

We thus watched BSG until 5.30am.

Why am I awake at 7am, then, you ask? That's primarily because I'm an idiot. Moving on...

Tomorrow (which is really later today, since this is a normal waking-up hour for many people) and my decisions. I am deciding here and now that to keep from going no-pressure to ALSKDJFLAKSDf!TOOMUCHPRESSURE I am going to just organise my exam revision: create folders, gather resources, email the lecturers the lectures I need to email, create some sort of a plan. The fact that I'm doing any of this at all during spring break is an improvement.

Plus, I keep telling myself that once my brain is reminded of the revision topics (what things were discussed in each module), it's going to go all thinky-mode on the material it remembers and drudge much of it back up to the surface. Which is a bit wishy-washy, really, but nonetheless true.

Now it is sleep time because the sun is most definitely up and that means I've pulled another inadvertent all-nighter. I think the Hours of the Birds is even over, so no more harmony of dawn birdsong, which means I am absolutely awake too late by my own standards.

My sleep schedule is so frakked. But it's break and I don't miiind. (: *Dances.* I hope I dream about Roslin tonight! Fandom dreams are the best. (; asldjkfalsdf Roslin/McGonagall. Only my tired brain could think of that right now, but they're totally both leaders thrown into a leadership position they didn't quite expect. I'm sure they'd have wonders to talk about. And oh how much they can say in one facial expression. Happy Kiwibrain thoughts. IT'D BE SS KITTYLOCK - Kitty for McGonagall (like, Kittyhawk) and Lock for Airlock (like, Roslin Airlock Awards and being hardcore). Oh my brain. I think I win the Airlock Award tonight for idiocy.

*Is sucked out her window and into the great depths of space.*

P.S. It's now 10 to 4pm and I woke up about a half hour ago. I give up on being a normal person. My attempt to remedy my pattern previously have not worked. When my body and mind can go nocturnal, they go nocturnal. I also tend to stay in bed longer in that state of waking dreams, because I love following a dream all the way down the rabbit hole...

'SS KITTYLOCK' sounds very neat *LOL*

I have come upon strange students' sleep-patterns in my children, when they are here once in a while (we never had the opportunity to do so in OUR days.... ;-) ), BUT: now you missed out on the nice warm spring sunshine.... or is it not that great in London just now?

OH!!! Your header on your journal-page: soooo beautiful, I have seen so many just like it today - in front of the villas the posh part of the big city where the lab is I went to work a bit today...

Awwr, thank you! I was wondering if anyone would notice I changed it. (: I love that sort of tree and I love snow-flurries that happen in sun with blue sky (I've seen them a few times). Glad you like it!

Hahaha glad you appreciated SS Kittylock. :Þ

My mother thinks my sleeping pattern is batty; I don't particularly blame her. I'm sure you never had the opportunity in your days, no, certainly not, previous generations were excellent at keeping their bed-times. (;

I wouldn't say I missed the nice warm spring sunshine, really - I got to greet the dawn through my window, feel the rays as I napped and woke up to them again. I love having two windows in my room. Then this evening I saw the sun set gold against my windows. I would say I experienced the sun exactly the way I love to! (: (Plus I wouldn't have been able to go out in it, since I was planning the day for revision planning, and these days most of that is online.)

Uuuuuuh Kiwi is watching BSG! *jumps* Waddayathink? Isn't it great? Isn't it awesome?

Roslin/McG is interesting, hadn't crossed my mind so far, but now I'll think of nothing else the whole day.
