    At night my mind has a high tide of:

    When lying in bed at night,

    I can't help recalling everything I did that I'm not proud of. What I could've done differently, what I should have said. More often than not I end up crying and only manage to fall asleep around 4 or 5am. It was fine during the holidays, but now that college is back in session...

    Seriously. It's constantly waging a daily war

    with my heart. The two of them disagree so much that it's driving me straight to the looney bin. My brain is cold and full of logic, my heart is passionate and idealistic. I get that I have to listen to whoever's nagging fits the most with a situation, but I wish they'd agree...

    I get pissed at how I always have the tendency

    to analyze things. That I have this weird way of looking around and having to notice every little thing that occurs. It's quite a torture, in all honesty. It feels like you know too much, but you can't stop.
