    for the 2849502818 night in a row I'm going to be early. But I can't. Since something has to set me off during the day. Even if my mind wants rest, the stress has invaded my DNA just enough to make me exhausted but can't sleep. This will last for days after a tumultuous...

    Last night, I was tired but could not sleep. That is not a rare experience for me but also it is not a daily thing. My mind wandered. It is rare for my mind to not wander. My thoughts came around toย something about spanking, which also is far from a rare occurance for me. It...

    I've had a long day at University,

    The lecture was very long lasted 2hours and a half the seminar itself was draining so much reading to do in a literature degree. Not to mention the long journey I had to make to go back home and being stuck during rush hour. Its 6am I am tired but I can't sleep.

    I'm so tired of trying and failing. So tired of not being enough, being too much or just being. I don't want to be here anymore. I'm tired of being a burden everywhere I go.
