    Hate when you truly open up to someone about

    your life and they tell you their feelings but then a few minutes later you see he's been asking other women about their sexual fantasies!!!

    Some people you wish you had never met,

    because you never can forget even if you want to.

    I would sometimes get some sleep in a few hours

    or less than an hour. But sometimes I would just get no sleep from over thinking what's on my mind and how I feel.

    Ok, last night on the news they said

    that the moon and 5 planets would be in line and visable in the southern sky this morning. They were right. Why do I know this? Because I can't sleep!!! What is going on with my internal clock!

    This is always at night time,

    so I stay up all night and end up sleeping during the day. Which in turn means I mess up my internal sleep clock, which means its a never ending cycle and here I am awake at 2:40 am posting this.

    I have so many things on my mind this very

    second. I finally fell asleep around 2am. I figured if I forced myself to sleep maybe my head would be clear when I wake up. WRONG. It's 5am, only had 3 hrs of sleep and my head is pounding. Ugh I'm considering taking sleeping pills

    Hmm I have realized that I always make patterns

    with everything. From what I eat to even my day-to-day activities. It's hard to break patterns and I honestly don't think anything is wrong with the way I am. Consistency is key!!!
