    Last week I was setting there sound asleep,

    and my boyfriend thought it was necessary to turn on the light to use the bathroom!!! That completely ruined my sleep schedule

    nope! Gosh, I used to hate living at my

    boyfriends house sometimes. He would sleep with the light dimmed and music playing sometimes... and, most of the time I just ended up shutting everything off at some point.. I prefer to sleep with complete to almost complete darkness, with either no noise or white noise .. I...

    Don't you hate when your parents go inside your

    room to see if you were sleeping. At that moment you tell then to get out and also ruined your sleep.

    Some charming local characters outside my

    window shouting " I SWEAR TO ******* GOD SHAUNA". The unknown "Shauna" has yet to construct a rebuttal. I miss my old neighbours. They were never home.

    If I ever leave my television on

    before I go to bed, I always wake up in the middle of the night irritated and mad because it was my tv's fault.

    I Just Can't.

    I cannot get to sleep with lights on, or hearing noise, other than my fan.  I need my fan's noise to sleep, ironically.  I sleep very lightly, after having had to take care of babies, so I wake up at most noises.
