I Am Usually Awake In The Middle Of The Night

    I remembered when I watched The Hills Have Eyes.

    I couldn't sleep for a week. After that, I still had to have the lights on and door locked.

    I try to go to bed between 10

    and midnight every night. However, I have this annoying habit of waking up about 2 or 3 hours after I've gone to bed and being unable to fall back asleep right away. Asi es la vida!

    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.

    I don't sleep very easily.

    It takes me forever to fall asleep. It's like I'm tired but I can't sleep. I wish I was able to actually get some sleep because I usually only get 3-5 hours of sleep daily and most of it happens during the actual day.

    Thinking, over thinking,

    thinking of you, thinking of school, thinking of the future, thinking about the rest. The thoughts won't stop

    I'm laying here, looking at the ceiling.

    From the corner of my left eye I can see blue clay blobs moving up and down the pink water of my lava lamp. I just want to scream right now, but as soon as I open my mouth nothing comes out. There's so much on my mind right now. How am I going to finish 6 pages by tomorrow...

    Good sleep is a rarity

    for me. Most of the time I can't sleep 2 hours straight unless I'm really exhausted or sick. Theres always some reason to get up be it to go to the bathroom, a random sensation of falling, or just my own nightmares keeping me awake. It doesn't help with my depression very much...

    I am usually awake in the middle of the night,

    I'm a night person. What I dread most is that time between the three and four o'clock hour. This is what is called by the Russians "The Hour of the Wolf." It is during this hour that you lie in bed not sleeping, aware that you are not sleeping. It is during this time that the...

    I find my thought processes a lot clearer in

    the stillness of the dark. The hustle and bustle of the day tends to leave my mind reeling, searching for an escape route to make sense of the content I've poured into it. I imagine my mind something like that painting of the screaming face during daylight hours. Wanting to...

    I can't sleep because I see

    and hear things. I'll see faces or shapes that are not there, or I always feel like someone is watching me. Whenever I'm alone, I always have a feeling that someone is following me or watching me, and I have to look around or behind me every 5 or 10 seconds.
