    Its so beautiful when you wake up and you see snow flakes slowly falling. Thats a picture of the view I got from my balcony. Picture was taken last winter.

    My sleep schedule is beyond messed up. Awake all night sleep part of the day. Difficult to sleep when your mind is racing near the speed of light or you feel the need to read and look up every single stupid thought that pops into your head at odd hours of the night. So here I am...

    Can't sleep once again.

    My mind is racing to fast and I can't control it. I just want to ask every question that has ever been asked all at once. Can't say I don't mind being awake though. I usually use this time to really think about life and how it's going. It relaxing and stressful at the same time...

    Carpe Noctem

    Once I had a friend with whom I first discovered what a powerful drug lack of sleep can actually be. We'd stay awake talking on the phone way past 2am, which is when "the drug", as we called it, would commonly kick in. I've had some of the most wonderful conversations in the...

    Story of my life. Maybe I should get a job

    where I can work the graveyard shift. Perhaps sleep would be easier to acquire in the daytime.

    I have a bad habit of staying up too late.

    I'd gotten better for a while - lights out and electronic devices off by 11:00pm was Sir's rule - but I've fallen back into the old routine of staying up, sometimes much later. I finally fall asleep but often awaken around 2-2:30am and can't get back to sleep for a long time. I...
