I'm so sleepy right now and I'm at work!

Really. I am now in the middle of my 6am-2pm morning shift and my eyes are already drooping. I hadn't had much sleep last night; it's so hard to pep-talk oneself to fall asleep. (yes, pep talk. literally, like, "C'mon, you have to fall asleep now, you have to wake up early tomorrow...) It doesn't help that there are very few emails to answer to today, and no service outages to immerse myself into (not that I'm wishing for one, let's just stick to work mail for now). If yawning is banned at the office, I would've been fired by now. I'm overwhelming with the need to go to the bathroom just to close my eyes for a measly ten-minute nap. At times like these, what do you do to keep yourself awake?

Water! I need that. Just got away from the flu virus recently. I'm on my way to our pantry right now. Thanks a lot! :))

Grab yourself a cup of coffee and a candy bar. Find something that you can snack on, like sunflower seeds, or something that you consistently have to repeat. Good luck it feels like you are dying a thousand deaths!
