    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

    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.

    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.

    In order for me to really get to sleep,

    I need to have complete darkness and no noise. The only light I ever have in my room is my fish tank, my wall scented plug in, and sometimes my laptop if I leave it open...and I can only haven white noise - like a fan or something like that. That's how I'm used to sleeping...

    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.

    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.
