    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

    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 Won't Let Myself Sleep.

    I have felt like this for a very long time. I do feel tiredness, I can sleep. But I won't. My attitude toward sleep is similar to an anorexics attitude toward food. I feel guilty and weak when I'm tired, I'll stay up until the early hours making sure I'm up later than my friends...

    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?

    Like Sleeping But Dislike Going To Sleep

    i can be worn out by football practice and school and eyes closing. I could easily go to sleep or fall asleep but something makes me feel like theres more interesting things to do, then lay and go to sleep

    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.
