    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 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...

    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.

    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.
