    Because I'm An Idiot

    I've thought about this good and hard and I've decided that's the only valid reason. I'm such an idiot that I stay up late doing nothing even though I know I'm tired and will have plenty of time to do nothing the next day. Many nights, I tell myself,  "Just...

    I Wish I Didnt Wake Up

    everytime I fall asleep is a blessing. I just wish I didnt wake up. Because the sleep..is less painful than the real.

    Sleep is for the WEAK!

    Sleep is obsolete in such a fast world! Sleep is out of reach for an insomniac.

    Me Too

    I am not a morning person. I prefer to start in the afternoon and work through the night, into the early hours of the following morning. Even then, I sometimes end up burning the candle at both ends.

    Never Enough...

    There are never enough hours in the week. I feel like I'm sleepwalking through life sometimes.

    Never Do....

    5 Hours

    It's most I can sleep, no matter how drunk or tried I am. I can not sleep in. I bounce out of bed at 8:30 am every morning. This has cused problems when vacationing with other people. It bothers me to sleep past 9 for some reason.

    3 Hours If I'm Lucky

    All I sleep is MAYBE 3 hours. I am working 3 jobs to keep everything up and running here alone at my house and sometimes I don't even get that. Like when I get off work at 4am and have to be to work at 630. It kills me, but it's what I have to do to survive.
