    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.

    it's so relaxing, not to mention how good it smells. it's the only time I can easily fall asleep. I always wake up refreshed if it rains through the night.

    I love the thunderstorms and heavy rain. I sleep so well and *wakes up drool on face*. I don't live in my hometown anymore. So I had to download a sound tape.
