Haha, I overslept by around an hour this morning. xD My alarm is normally set for 8:05am on work days. This morning, I woke briefly at 7:45am, but went back to sleep as I had another 20mins. I dreamt about trains and heroes of justice (who were people I know in real life) rushing about to save mankind. Partway through the dream, after we had completed the first showdown and were riding the train to rush to our next destination in crisis, I remembered thinking vaguely to myself, "this dream is stretching kinda long for 20mins...." In which I proceeded to try and wake myself up. Eventually, I managed to get my eyes open, and immediately reached for my clock, with a bad feeling about the time....
It was 8:50am! (I start work at 9am) XD I had no recollection of even hearing my alarm; I must have automatically switched it off and slipped back into a deep sleep. In my semi-disorientated state, I actually thought about trying to make it, and dashed to the bathroom to wash up, but as the cold water shocked me awake I realised there was no way. XD Finally accepting my defeat, I returned to the tatami room and picked up my phone to call my supervisor.
Nakagawa-san answered with a puzzled "hn?", so soft I wasn't sure anyone had picked up or not.
Me: Moshi moshi? (Hello?)
Nakagawa-san: Ohayou~ (Good morning~)
Me: I'm really sorry, but I kinda overslept this morning, so would I be able to take 1 hour of leave? I will be in at 10am. Sorry. orz
Nakagawa-san: Got it~
I lay on the floor for a while and laughed at myself. This is the second time I've ever done this since working here; both days were rainy, dark mornings which I am sure attributed to it.
Thank God for understanding, easy-going colleagues, and a supervisor who just smiles amusedly at this sort of thing <3 I will endeavour to make sure there won't be a third time though! I will set two alarms for tomorrow!
Now it's almost home time~ Will make a nice warm nutritious soup tonight and eat it with some leftover fish while watching Tensai Terebi-kun (a kids evening show that is oddly entertaining XD). Then shower, Bible reading (+journalling?), Japanese study and finish off maybe with a bit of Kara no Kyoukai reading if it's not too late already~ Or, if I'm too tired, some brainless Japanese television. My crate of cranberry juice should arrive tonight too, hopefully! ^^
