Why Am I Tired?

Why am I so tired all of the time? I’m only 22 years old, and I feel like I’m pushing 40 sometimes. I didn’t have this problem when I first came to college. I was lively, energetic, and could pull at least two all-nighters in a row if I wanted to. Now, I can’t even manage to take a 4 or 5 hour nap without oversleeping a couple of hours. Two alarm clocks do no good either. Why do I need a nap in the first place? That goes hand-in-hand with my first question. I’m tired, but I don’t know why.

Back in high school, I would get up every day at 6 a.m. and not leave school until almost 7 p.m. during this time of the year. Sure, I was tired. But, if I had too, I could go on all night and barely feel the effects the next day. Now, if I done that, I would nearly fall dead the next day.

I guess it’s just part of life. And don’t ask me why I’m writing this at 3 in the morning. Justin, maybe that’s why you’re tired. I’m about to go to bed. Remember I overslept my nap; that’s why I’m up at this hour.

People can’t handle the same things they could when they were younger. Maybe it’s because I’ve become a lazy bum. Not on my exercise plan like I need to be. Not eating as good as I should be. I should probably be doing those things. Maybe I’ll get started tomorrow. It’s too late to change my life tonight.
