It is in the quiet hours after 1 am that I start planning for the day ahead. I lie awake contemplating meetings, lunches, relationships, and international shipping. I wonder if GameStop is going to change how we invest if bitcoin is truly going to reach the predicted levels. I make a mental note to check in with a friend. I decide to do it immediately and I send a her a text, unsurprisingly she texts right back. Her schedule is just a packed as mine.

The pandemic, politics, lack of exercise, excessive caffeine consumption, and unbalanced meals are examples of other scandalous culprits behind my sleepless nights.
