    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.

    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.

    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

    Idk why but I just really can't fall asleep. I guess all the drama in my life brings back flashbacks and it prevents me from sleeping. All well. Just another sleepless night.
