My schedule is still slightly off even though I’ve been sleeping better again. My whole sense of time seems to be off recently.
The day after the two sick days I accidentally went to work late. I was taking a nap before work and set my alarm. In the process of messing with the clock, I changed the timezone on it as its an atomic clock.
And then I went to work late again today. For an odd reason, today felt like Saturday to me and I go to work later on Saturdays. I think the reason for my confusion was that I worked on my day off which I rarely do and it threw off my routine. I have a split weekend and Saturday normally comes after my first day off of the week. Since I worked Friday, it made it feel like my whole week had shifted. My unconscious mind had a rule it was following and told my conscious mind it was Saturday.
It simply felt like Saturday and I had a shock to my system when I finally noticed what day it was. I felt kind of stupid. If I had given it a moment of conscious thought it would’ve been obvious that it couldn’t be Saturday for various reasons.
Its extremely unusual for me to go to work late. I have an issue about tardiness as my mom raised me to be very time conscious. I’m a person that likes to get to work 30 minutes early despite my living so close by. I have a very set routine and I live only a block away from work. It doesn’t take me long to get ready and walk to work and I give myself plenty of leeway.
These kinds of events tend to happen in multiples. Its usually during a period of time when my schedule has shifted or been disrupted. I’ll have to pay attention more closely to time and days until my system gets reset to my regular routine.
