    I am tired, but I don't want to go home.

    The tiredness helps me sleep, but the only sucky thing is I always end up jolting awake in the middle of the night. Just one more day. Hang on for one more day. Then I can sleep the sunlight away. Oh I rhymed yippee-ki-yay.

    This week has been a busy week.

    With work, training, life, and etc. Now, I'm on this no carb diet & feel miserable (lol). But the sucky part, that I've been soooo busy that I rarely get to relax and chill w/ people. I guess that the price you pay to better yourself. 😏

    Today I fell asleep in math class.

    And some kid had the nerve to wake me up by yelling in my ear! My dreams were definitely more interesting than algebra. Maybe I should sleep more, nah the internet was created to prevent people from sleeping, I swear.

    Among our egocentric sad-sacks,

    despair is as addictive as heroin and more popular than sex, for the single reason that when one is unhappy one gets to pay a lot of attention to oneself. Misery becomes a kind of emotional ************.” ― Tom Robbins, Wild Ducks Flying Backward
