    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...

    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...
