This Video Totally Nails The Feeling Of Sleepiness
As parents I'm 100% sure you've been through phases of extreme exhaustion. When your eyelids are so heavy that no amount of gaffer tape, or toothpicks wedged in between them for support could keep them peeled open. When the ticking of the wall clock becomes a slow hypnotic rhythm that takes over you, luring your heavy head to make contact with your lusciously soft pillow. When you're neck-deep in the demands of newborn baby routines and you would give anything just to close your eyes to indulge in a miniature slice of that sweet sweet sleep...
You may even be trying to keep yourself awake right now. Don't worry, you're not alone.
This beautifully animated short titled 'Afternoon Class' depicts the immense struggle of staying awake in incredible detail.
Okay, so it's set in an excruciatingly boring classroom setting, but the epic struggle to stay awake is oh-so-real, and truly one that is both common to students and parents alike. Long meetings at the #worklife, the slow worm-like movement back home on the #commuterlife, and the seemingly never-ending late nights of the #parentlife.
Yep, I know the feels. How about you?
