    It's late, I should be sleeping

    but I'm alone and can't thanks to stupid nightmares. Childish?

    I was so tired earlier,

    but it seems like the more time that passes the more awake I feel. The sun will be rising soon...

    On my balcony listening to music

    and looking at the night sky getting lost in my thoughts. Im on the 40th floor and the city looks soo beautifull light up. Makes you think there's so many human in this world and how come some of us are alone ? Maybe it's just me. Sometimes it feels like i got the whole world...

    Be Quiet Brain.

    I turned back my bed, cranked up the electric blanket but I can't sleep.  If I get in I'll just lay there.  I know it.  Too many active thoughts.  Things are left unsaid, undone.  I wish I had a way to switch off my brain sometimes. I am always...

    I hate how everyone I know can just flop down

    onto a bed and pass out within ten minutes. I flop onto a bed, and I'm completely exhausted, but I can't fall asleep. It literally takes me hours to fall asleep. Still awake and I only slept for two hours.

    It's one of those bad nights.

    I can't go to sleep, I'm tired but not tired enough to fall asleep. Insomnia, mixed with horrific nightmares that happen if I fall asleep when I'm not tired enough create a deadly mix. Love sleep, but loathe it. I hope I can get myself together in time for when school begins...

    Oh if I could only have a good nights sleep

    again. Sleeping in this big bed alone is so excruciating. Having him beside me for ten years...and then to wake up with an empty spot beside me. How is anyone suppose to get use to that? I find myself reaching out for him through the night only to find a bare space :( I know...

    So I woke up today at 2.

    36am and I've just been having cup after cup of tea all morning. It's because I'm sick but I have something important going on today and I can't afford to be ill. It is now 5.53am. Time to start getting ready :) Hopefully I'll feel a bit better soon.

    Honestly, I think my body just hates me.

    Or something is broken with it because no matter how tired I am, if I go to bed before 3-4 am I can't sleep!! I physically can't. I mean, I'll sleep for a few minutes to a half an hour but I can't fully get a deep sleep until the sun starts to come up. It sucks!!

    I'm so freaking tired

    and my eyes sting. I yawn and put my head in the pillow and sleep just does not want to come. I rode about 55km today - maybe 30miles? I feel good but sore and my neck feels like it will snap off but laying here and no sleep comes, so I get my phone and babble on here to no...

    I'm stressed about this latest job interview.

    They do a back check, which is fine, then conduct another interview with you regarding what they find. I have no criminal history, and everything I put on my resume is the truth. But I just know they're going to judge me on a few things. Personal matters. It feels like an...
