I mean, it’s fun, but staying up til 1 a.m. is a brutal piece of work. Just got up, had coffee and a tangerine, and it is going to be a challenge to get my day on track. I didn’t do the checklist last night, either… it’s so associated with going to bed that I kind of thought it would make me too tired to play if I did it before, and I was certainly too tired to do it afterwards.
Now don’t be wrong-gettin’ me*, I’m committed to it! It’s just taking a different strategies to handle UP SO LATE when I’m so used to being an early-to-bed guy. In a way, I think this is healthy… flexing a “stay up late” muscle that I can use for concerts, etc.
