    Never Can

    I can't do it. SO might as well not try. I stay up into the midmorning quite often. It;s 5am at the moment and Iknow I still have hours to go until I get to rest.

    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...

    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...
