"Have you ever tried to sleep while eyes are fully open?"
April 17, 2018 1:07am CST
It sounds silly to ask such question. In fact, I had experienced this for a couple of times. It is not a secret that I am teaching the English language online. The peak hours of classes usually start at 6:00 PM to 12:00 AM. Personally, it is convenient for me. However, sometimes if I am lack of sleep, then that’s what makes me like a zombie. For example, I am having a class, half asleep and the student is doing certain tasks. I can still wake up in between the session while my eyes are wide open. Honestly, it is difficult to do such things. In reality, some individuals do sleep while their eyes are open. I had seen some of them. Now, I am going to sign-off. I need to take a nap this afternoon. For the reason that I will not fall asleep while having classes this evening. Have a great day! “Any experience like this? “Can you function well if lack of sleep?” “Do you know anyone who sleeps while eyes are open?” Image Credit: encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com

Yes, I do. I used to work a SAP consultant and we have graveyard shifts and we do not really get a lot of tasks during that time that we fall asleep. I slept like twice or thrice away from the CCTV. But it is true we are like a Zombie or "bangag" hehehe

@Shavkat hahaha because they are also sleeping. SAP is I think is related to IT industry. It is a system used by most companies in the world. It just looks like a call center because it caters to EMEA (Europe area), APJ (Asia Pacific & Australia regions) and NA (North America).
once when i was on night duty handling level 2 nursing students, i was talking something about the female reproductive system, that my words were incomprehensible. i even talked in our regional language. that was in 2004 at around 3AM. good thing many of my students were so sleepy so they did not understand what i was talking about. i was aware of my sentences, even the Ilocano i said, but my students' eyelids were half-close already. hahaha
@Shavkat i once communicated with a lady medical intern here in the medical ward. the Indian intern knows English language only and cannot understand Iloco, so i spoke to her in English. she was asking the BP of her patient and other vital signs and i responded. when we finished our conversation, my students said,"Ma'am, nosebleed. you talked in straight English."
