    Trying everything I can not to sleep

    since I know in a few days from now my life could potentiality be shattered. I'm terrified if I sleep time will move quicker than I want it to and it'll be too late. *long sigh* Why do I have to deal with all these problems? Did I **** off some higher deity or something?

    Not Insomnia Anymore

    I'm so tired, I'm exhausted,  but something in my head makes me not want to sleep. I had insomnia for 2 weeks recently but now I can sleep...I don't want to. I'm in a constant state of anxiousness. I'm so tired.

    How True

    so much to do, so little time to do it. so in order to try and do more we stay awake and deprive ourselves of the sleep that our bodies want. What a crazy thing to do. if we sleep more we cld be much more productive in a shorter amount of time.

    I Hate Going to Sleep

    If I go to sleep before I know it, it will be tomorrow. I don't want to have to put up with another day, I don't want tomorrow to come. Time crawls slower at night.

    I Did This Today

    I always do this unless I'm so sleepy I can't keep my eyes open. Today, I slept at 5:30 am and woke up at 9 am. Heh, but it was only possible because my school's closed. :P
