A Cornucopia of Stories

The Best Lack of Sleep Ever.

Last night I sat down and hit the books to complete a vibrations exam and a bunch of academic stuff for an MBA Brookstone* strategy assignment. I didn’t get to sleep until 1:30am-ish. Then, I had to get up this morning before 6am for a cholesterol check down at the Hospital.

Tangent: The Hospital.

Meriden, CT is home to the mid-state medical center hospital. Apparently they recently did some housekeeping: the hospital is beautiful. Walking inside felt less like a hospital and more like a trip into a hotel. It didn’t smell like Hospital. It smelled… like a delicious coffee shop. And sure enough, there was a dunkin donuts inside the hospital.

The signage was extremely clear. And the interior design was really classy and warm. I never thought I’d be so impressed with a Hospital. Way to go Mid-state Medical!

Anyway… despite the paltry 4.5 hours of rest – I am feeling great today. It’s remarkable how great I feel. Why is this? we can only wonder. But somethings have definitely helped.

1. Pandora has delivered a fantastic array of rocking tunes to start my day:
Audioslave: light my way
Soundgarden: mailman
Alice in Chains: It a’int that way
Stone Temple Pilots: Down

2. I’ve been amazingly productive at work.

3. Coffee.

I hope I don’t crash in exhaustion. Today’s got such potential.
