You might need more sleep if.... have been consistently getting 4 hrs of sleep a night. start out your shift at the Writing Center feeling pretty tired.
.....the paper you are reading over with a student is not the most entertaining. find yourself swiveling your chair distractingly back and forth in a valiant effort to keep your eyes open. also find yourself biting the insides of your cheeks to keep from yawning for the 42nd time in the same tutorial. feel a little drowsy while reading this blog post. hear yourself talking, and you just hear your voice getting gradually slower and lower. kind of feel like you're having an out-of-body experience, and you're just watching yourself talk from a foot or two above your own head. realize, just before the words leave your mouth, that you were about to say: "Sometimes scientists break the rules, right. So are you arguing for the police to come and put them in the pool, since they're being unethical?" are barely able to remember that this does not make sense when discussing a paper about the medicinal properties of chamomile. realize, when you remember this, that you just fell asleep while talking. try to restart your brain and think of something....anything!.....intelligent to say, and nothing comes.
.....your tutee is looking at you with a vaguely concerned expression and doesn't understand any of the questions you ask them. realize that they probably don't understand your questions because the questions probably don't make sense. end this remarkably unsuccessful tutorial and go back to the tutor table, feeling a little guilty for the lack of help that you were to your tutee but mostly just feeling sorry for yourself. go back home, bound and determined to go to sleep immediately after dinner. don't go to bed until 1 in the morning - again - because you got all wrapped up in roommate bonding, ex-roommate bonding, lesson planning, and the ever-entrancing power of facebook.
.....and the cycle continues.
