Sleep Deprivation and Achievement Completion

It never ceases to amaze me just how easy it can be to push the human body well beyond its normal operational limits. I certainly don’t make a habit of doing so, but this makes the second time in the last few months that I pushed past the 24 hours awake with a lot less effort than I expected. The first was an unfortunately timed court appearance. Those never go quickly and take place during my regular sleep hours.

This time, though, it was to help some friends get back home. Their car suffered a catastrophic failure while a couple hours from home, and it’s cheaper to cover someone’s gas for a ride than to grab a couple hour uber. I’m just glad I was able to make the trip with none of the drowsiness and nodding off that I’d been contending with most of the week.

Of course, I’m not as young as I used to be. As handy as it is, it comes with a cost. Once I finally got home and got everything settled I effectively slept for the next 13 hours straight. According to my watch, anyway. This is also a contributing factor to me falling behind on posts for a few days.

What always makes it entertaining is thinking of all the days and nights that I did this on purpose when I was younger. Much younger, in fact, as the game that almost always comes to mind is the original Final Fantasy VII on PS1.

The other part of the delay was finally finishing off the Borderlands TPS achievements. That’s officially finished and uninstalled. That’s three out of five down. My brother expressed an interest in playing BL3 so I rolled into refamiliarizing myself with that.

Y’all take care. Don’t do this at home.
