    Eyes Wide Open

    This one time in my Chemistry class, I was so sleepy, I actually sort of slept and dreamed with my eyes open but I was also vaguely aware of being in my class. At the end of the class, when I looked down at my notes, it was a mixture of my Chemistry notes and parts of dreams that...

    Yeah Well, I Was Bored.

    Circuit theory, engineering physics, all my computer programming classes - all with at least one time per class. Circuit theory was just boring and difficult, but I should say dozed off rather than fell asleep.  I learned everything I knew by reading on my own and going to...

    Sometimes?

    Nay, it's far more than sometimes. At least several times a week, but often at least once a day, sometimes several times a day. During AP physics, during AP English, during math, during study hall... it humours the hell out of my classmates. Particularly when I open my eyes to...

    Just Memories Now
