Gratitude: Day 5

Today, as I type Gratitude: Day 5, I am grateful that I am 25% of the way through my Tucson practicum experience.

That is not to say that I sit around wishing away every day, because I do not... but Tucson is really hot, and I am grateful for each day I get through without heat stroke.  Yesterday was the first day I was out and about for O&M lessons -- the lesson from 1:00-3:00 was a doozy.

I do not want to wish away my time here... I want to treasure my time here, and gain everything possible from this experience.  Nevertheless, my huge O&M paper is due Sunday, and so I am kind of am wishing away every day until Sunday.

Yesterday afternoon, I couldn't keep my eyes open while reading research, so I decided to take a 20-minute power-nap.  I set my cell phone alarm, and fell asleep immediately.  I awoke 2 hours later and my cell phone was on the floor.  I'm not exactly sure what transpired when the alarm went off, but I certainly did not wake up.

I think the afternoon in the heat might have affected my afternoon exhaustion.  Next week, a two hour nap would be okay -- this week, I HAVE TO WRITE THIS PAPER... and I really need to be awake to do it.

4 days down -- 16 to go.
