Got an earlier than usual start to this day. It’s still dark as I write this. Got only five hours of sleep last night. I had been getting eight or so for weeks. I hope this change in sleep patterns isn’t a prelude to problems. But overall I feel quite well. Sometimes I do get kind of lonely though. Socializing over facebook and phone just isn’t the same as seeing someone in person. But I don’t socialize much in person because it seems that so many people I come into contact with are in foul and irritable moods all the time. Don’t know what to make of it. I just don’t want that negativity rubbing off on me. I don’t have the energy or the time to deal with needless drama anymore. I’m too old for it. As it is I’m content to stay alone for the time being.
