28 Hour Days Project, Conclusion

Tue, Sep 24, 2019 | 1000 Words

I've been pretty quiet about the 28 hour days project, even though it has still been ongoing. I'll be honest, I fell into a bit of a depressive state and didn't have the energy to devote towards writing or productive work. I'm unsure about the providence of this episode; while it could be a side effect of changing my sleeping schedule, it's also a well-known part of my schizoaffective disorder.

Getting further into my 28-hour days experiment and trying to focus a bit more on “getting stuff done”. Night Time I woke up at 22:00, which is a pretty weird time to come around, because your partner is about to go to sleep and you're just thinking about breakfast. After spending some time with Nikki and seeing her to bed I decided to wrap up the blog post for the last two days and then spend some time chilling.

28 Hour Days Project, Day 2 And 4

After two 28-hour days 12 of working hard on projects (and a bunch of super-productive 24-hour days previously), I kinda just wanted to mess around for a bit. Hitchhiker I chilled online, went to Hula Bula Bar with Nikki to read our books, then came home and spent hours and hours playing WH40K Inquisitor Martyr until it was time to go to bed. It was dope. I was very tired from 4AM onward and found I was unable to do anything productive even though it was my desire.

Continuing on from my introductory post and my first day in the 28 hour system, I'm still carrying on with this experiment! Reasonable Sleep I fell asleep pretty much when I was supposed to last night, which meant that I had a nice solid 8 hours and woke up around 10AM Friday morning to being the Uprising day. I felt a bit tired, but nothing uncharacteristic for me over the past 3 months, so I decided to launch myself straight into my projects.

28 Hour Days Project, Day 1

Continuing on from my introductory post about the 28 Hour Day, the experiment has finally begun! I'll try and write one of these posts a day and give a quick, basic recap of how I used my time and any issues I ran into. Feels weird starting this project mid-week, but let's see what “Satellite” the day, has to offer us (the 7 day week equivalent, Thursday, is normally my “breakdown day”).

In September of 2007, xkcd released a comic that would stick with me for over a decade. I've always wanted to try this schedule but been held back by work or other commitments. However since I've decided to take an extended break for myself, I thought it would finally be the perfect time to try and crank this out for a week or two and document the process. Of course, with the bevy of mental health problems I suffer this could be calamitous.
