    Trying to sleep is the most boring pastime I know of, and I watched paint dry yesterday so I know what I'm talking about. There is nothing worse than laying in bed, tossing about (oi, no funny stuff) trying to get to sleep when your brain won't switch off. I hate waking up in the...

    Takes Me Soooo Long

    My dad can fall asleep easily. As soon as he sets his head onto his pillow, you could hear his snoring. Meanwhile, in  room I could be up for 3 hours before finally falling asleep. You'd find me staring at ceiling for awhile with my hands behind my head. The only time when I...

    I Dread It Every Day

    Sleeping has always been a huge struggle for me. It boggles my mind as to how anyone can just fall asleep so easily, simply by resting their head on the pillow. Usually I'm laying in bed anywhere from an hour to five hours. Sometimes I won't be able to fall asleep at all. The...
