    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...

    4:51 Am

    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...
