Dusk Posted May 4, 2021 Report Share Posted May 4, 2021 Hi again. again. I'm so tired. I'm working on finishing my master's report, but I'm battling pretty gnarly burnout.

Aiming for 3x/week. - Lastly, trying to get my sleeping in line. Goal is to try and be in bed by 9pm every night. Ideally even earlier than that, since my beloved spouse has to wake up at 4am to get ready for work; but 9pm bedtime is doable.
