    Despite how many times I tell myself

    that I am going to bed early and end up staying till like 1AM on a school night is unbelievable. Like honestly I wake up at 6:40AM and instantly regret staying up late. My sleeping schedule is so messed up it's uncanny.

    Help me fall asleep! Preferably American

    or European. I'm really picky about grammar and tone of voice. If you can skype audio call that'll be best. I want to close my eyes and fall asleep but need mindless conversation or good conversation to tire me out.

    I've always been a night owl.

    I'm much more creative later in the day and end up staying up much later than I should. Especially cramming finals for college. Although with this quarter finally over maybe I can work on correcting that.

    Sometimes I sleep early

    as 10 pm, sometimes I sleep as late as 1 am. You could say I'm a night owl, sometimes I can stay up the whole night and not sleep for the whole day in daylight and night time.
