We have a pretty busy social calendar given all our different gaming sessions, and I think that between all the games, work, and all the other geeky stuff that we like to busy ourselves, I'm realizing that I'm feeling a lot more tired these days. Maybe I'm simply getting older and I just need to accept that I can't do quite as much as I used to. There's always my general level of fitness (and the lack thereof) to consider as another reason why I'm feeling a lot more tired these days. Or maybe our gaming calendar is just a wee bit too busy.
Case in point, for the next few weeks we've mapped out a few Saturday afternoon games that will extend into the evening. Given I work at night, this means that I probably won't get to sleep between the end of my work shift come Friday morning and the time for the game session come the afternoon. Any call center employee knows this challenge well and we've all spent more than our fair share of time pushing ourselves to enjoy Saturday only to utterly collapse into a deep sleep immediately after. I should have enough strength to stay awake during the game itself, but I doubt that I'll be any good for conversation during the ride home.
But there's just so much that I need to get done and even more things that I want to do and this conundrum is what drives a lot of my frustrations in life. Time is so fleeting and the human body so frail that it's nearly impossible to do every single thing that we want to do. But it doesn't mean that we won't die trying to do precisely that just to be all stubborn in the face of reality.
