    It Is Difficult

    I find it hard to sleep because I'm stuck lost in thoughts. I'm thinking of the past, the future, college. I'm wondering where I see myself in the future. I'm afraid of living and dying. I just want to sleep forever and have a never ending dream of my perfect world.

    I love falling asleep to the sound of rain, I think it's rhythmic and really soothing. It's colder when it rains too and that makes my bed feel 100 times more comfortable :)
