I’ll Sleep When I Am Dead
I am not sure why I started feeling like that. But by the end of the year 2008 I had this feeling that I am wasting my time by sleeping.
On 2nd Jan 09 this came into my mind.
"If i sleep one hour less everyday. I will get 365 hours per years. And that is 365hrs/9hrs = 40 working days. Awesome ..i am reducing my …"
Since then I am trying to reduce my sleeping duration. Initial plan was to reduce from 8.5 hrs (I live near office) to 7.5 hours. I am almost there. Even before being completely successful I have set a new target to reduce it to 6.5 hours.
Whats the use? I get more time to spend with my family (cook, talk), more time to read/code and less restlessness as I have more time to do what I want. Lets see how it goes.
I am not a great western music listener. But thanks to Atul for pointing out this song by Bon Jovi. I am amazed to see how much this lyrics represents state of my mind.
Seven days of saturday Is all that I need Got no use for Sunday 'Cause I don't rest in peace Don't need no Mondays Or the rest of the week I spend a lot of time in bed But baby I don't like to sleep no I won't lie to you I'm necer gonna cry to you I'll probably drive you wild 8 days a week Until I'm 6 feet under Baby I don't need a bed Gonna live while I'm alive I'll sleep when I'm dead Till they roll me over And lay my bones to rest Gonna live while I'm alive I'll sleep when I'm dead So you're looking for some action I got got everything you need Better keep your motor running 'cause I was built for speed This ain't no slumber party Got no time for catching z's If they say that that ain't healthy Well then living's a disease We're never going to die baby Come on let me drive you crazy We'll make every night another New Year's Eve Full Lyrics
