    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...

    Every Night I Fall Asleep At 1 A.M

    I really don't know why, I can go to bed at 8 and literally stare at a wall for the next 3 hours. I'm too young for sleep medications and am not allowed to do anything else. I usually spend this time plotting (not evil villain plotting just plans for the future). I don't know...

    Let's Partyyyyyy

    Let's party or do something loud until I fall asleep. It sucks, I have been awake all night as usual. I don't know if it's some kind of a habit or if it's actually insomnia. I just can't seem to fall asleep. I try closing my eyes trying to sleep but nothing happens so I...

    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.

    I hate that I can't fall asleep

    before five in the morning, and sometimes I don't go to bed at all. The only time I ever go to sleep before five is when I've been drinking. The worst part is the boredom.

    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...
