Slice of Life: Exhaustion 3/5

I am participating again this year in the Slice of Life challenge in which we write a slice every day in March.  If you are interested in joining in, visit the Two Writing Teachers blog for more information.

Today I am so exhausted I can't see straight.  Ever notice how when you are tired the world seems to move at a faster pace? I have been super fatigued the last few days and all I want to do is sleep. Is there a pause button on the world? Wouldn't it be great if we all could press pause every once in awhile and take a nap?

Tonight, I would use that power if I had it.  I hope to be able to finish some of my grades tonight and get something started in my report cards before I fall asleep.  Wish me good luck!

Here is a Haiku that goes with my general feeling right now:

Glorious bed waits
Eyes need to stay awake
Deep sleep comes tonight

How are you feeling today? I would love to hear from you in the comments!


  1. That was me yesterday and I slept for 10 hours. I must have needed it because today the fatigue is gone. Sometimes it is as simple as a good night's rest! :) I liked that you put a summary in haiku form!

  2. Good for you to write through the fatigue! It can be hard and being tired makes everything harder. Hope you get a great night's rest tonight and then onto another day!

  3. Exhaustion is a common experience for writers whose creativity knows no boundaries. Like the Haiku. Trying out my own writing at
