I Am Usually Awake In The Middle Of The Night

    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...

    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.
