sooo sleepy!!!

So here's my predicament. I've never been much of a morning person, but I've always been terrible at staying up late. Anyone who knows me knows I could probably count the number of nights I've stayed up all night on one hand. And all month I have been working day shifts, meaning I've had to get up at 5 am, but I got to be in bed by 8 or 8:30 every night. Which I was actually ok with, and FINALLY after all month I was used to waking up that early. But now that October is over, I have to work the night shift all next month. And my first week I get to do 3 nights in a row. And so between now and Tuesday night I have to teach my body to stay up late and sleep all day. Yesterday I did EVERYTHING I could to stay awake till midnight and didnt make it past 10:30, and then was up by 7 today. So tonight I HAVE to make it till midnight but I'm struggling right now. And if I was at work I would still have 7 hours left. So I desperately need some suggestions on how to stay up all night from all you night time people! Cuz I'm not sure how next week at work is going to go! HELP! Cuz this is how I feel right now...

Disaster week!!

ok. Anyone who knows me well knows that I have 2 main loves in my life (besides Tyson of course). They are:


Yup. That's right. Popcorn and rice. They are seriously my two staples. Even looking at these pictures is giving me the craving. And so naturally I would consider the events that happened this week a disaster. First...Thursday night I came home from work STARVING. So I filled up my rice cooker and turned it on and went and showered. I got out of the shower, got dressed, went to check on my rice...and nothing had happened. And there were no lights on it! So I plugged it into 3 different outlets...still no lights. Disaster right?
But at least I still had my popcorn! So tonight, me and Tyson are getting ready to start our traditional Sunday night of watching Amazing Race and eating popcorn...and I fill up my popcorn popper and turn it on...and nothing. after about 5 minutes of it doing its thing I got about 5 kernals! I want to cry!
Good thing its almost my birthday, right?
