    Need My Sleep!!

    Always

    I have no idea why, but my worries always seem ten times as big when I don't sleep, and the people I love seem ten times as far away from me. Considering this, and the fact that I am a natural worrier and a pessimist, it would be wise if I made it a habit to always sleep...
