If there was any positive facet to having been sick with the flu a week ago, it's that I'm sleeping really well these days. I'm falling asleep very quickly, and getting a good amount of sleep each night. It's kind of nice. I wake up less sleepy than usual, though I feel like I have a lot less control over when I get up. I'm still feeling what is hopefully the last of one of the after-effects of the flu—I feel lethargic and exhausted all day. I imagine that my ease of sleeping will go away as soon as that effect goes away.
