Making bad choices, or perhaps good choices

Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. or so, I was trying to write a homework assignment and a reading for CSC 151. But I was falling asleep at the keyboard. I thought about taking a nap. Michelle said something like Why don’t you go to sleep now, get up at 5:00 a.m., and do the work then. It sounded like a good idea. And I was asleep in bed five minutes later, plus or minus. I even woke up before my alarm went off at 5:05 a.m.

Fortunately, my co-teacher had written the homework assignment, so I just had a few quick edits. But … by the time I dealt with all of my email and had prepared my classes for the day, it was 8:30 a.m. and time to teach class. So I didn’t get the writing done or my musings done or, well, anything other than email and class prep. But I got sleep.

So, did I make a good choice or a bad choice?
