I Now Know What True Exhaustion Feels Like

Last week I covered the consumer electronics show with my co-workers which was awesome but also completely tiring. We’d be up until 1 or 2 in the morning writing posts then get up early to attend press conferences, go to meetings, walk the floor looking for cool stuff, and try to grab food and rest when we could.

I only survived because I kept getting those small bottles of energy drinks. They kept me going but made it so I completely exhausted myself by the end of the week. Monday I slept 12 hours then I stayed up all night to catch up on work. Thursday I was up until 4 am doing work. Friday I stayed up all night so I wouldn’t miss being on Hour of the Wolf.

I have never been so exhausted in my life.

Good thing I have no more free energy drinks to tempt me. I had the last one Friday night.

divider with ancient egyptian scarab I'm writing an Afrofuturist novel set in a matriarchal ancient Egypt where queer women of color rule the sand and sky. Want to know more? Read about it here. Want to help make it happen? Become my patron (& get free fiction)!
