    I keep worrying about what will happen months

    from now. It makes me cry knowing we won't be sitting in the same classes and won't be enjoying endless laughter with our friends. The future scares me. I will be true to her even if we're miles apart.

    I can't remember the last time I slept during

    the night. And now it's been 3 days without sleep, accompanied by my lovely girlfriend, Insomnia.

    Dear body, you are going to hate me in about

    four hours. Please tell the brain to lighten up and think of billowy marshmallow clouds instead of what you should be doing for fun this weekend. Ack

    Ahh the struggles of being a nurse working

    nights... It's 2:26am on my day off and I have so much on my mind! Why now?! I wasted half of the day lounging around before deciding to clean the house at about 3pm... I never left the house and have eaten nothing but junk and leftovers today. Why am I still awake??? Bahhh!!!

    Actually, I just can't get back to sleep.

    I woke up almost three hours ago with a terrible headache. I took a shower, then went and packed some clothes for my move to my new apartment. Tried to sleep after that, but gave it up and went grocery shopping instead. Now I am back home, lying in bed and missing my...

    I fell asleep early in the afternoon

    and woke up far later than I should have. The hours are stretching in front of me and I don't know how I'm going to spend my time until the morning. I feel lonely, and I want to talk to somebody, and nobody is awake.
