    My computer here at home and at work. I've been so sleepy lately and worn down that falling asleep isn't uncommon. It's hard when someone walks by your office and snaps their fingers to help open your eyes. I so need a vacation!

    I Was So Miserable................

    because I was hurting, and I couldn't concentrate on anything else. Sometimes even the pain medicines don't work, ans all you cab do is to try writing a story, or surfing the internet.At least that seems to ease my emotional stress. I surf the site until I can feel tired enough...

    College student, cramming in one more paper last minute or trying your best to write it better then before. I'm an awful writer, no sense of correct grammer whatsoever. Papers and chatting online to a few people i just couldn' say goodnight too :)

    Emailing In My Sleep

    Back In the Day On Irc

    I used to stay up all night chatting on IRC often. It was the first place I ever found real peer support. A few times I just didn't want to go to be, or someone would be late getting on and I'd want to stay up to talk to them. I wasn't missing anything outside of my online world...

    I used to have a recliner as a computer chair. I was doomed.  So many times I'd wake up with a whole bunch of messages from people either whining that I am ignoring them or wondering where the heck I went.
