    In need of serious life changes.

    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

    I Can't Ever Seem To Sleep The Night Before Travel

    Tried to read myself to sleep tonight. This usually works. I'm tired but can't seem to get to sleep. I am flying home tomorrow morning and have to be at the airport by 5am. It would be nice if I could sleep a little. I'm always like this on the nights before I travel. The usual...

    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.

    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!!!

    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.
