    Oh Sleep How I Love Thee, Why Do You Hurt Me So

    First of all, I am almost never tired. It's not just that I can't sleep, it's that I don't feel the need to. Other times, if I am tired, I just cannot sleep. I don't know why. I don't drink anything with caffiene in it, smoke, do drugs or anything like that, that would keep me up...

    "i Have Weird Sleep Patterns"

    It's true, I have weird sleeping habits - I sleep when I'm tired, and get up when I'm awake. It doesn't matter what time of day or night it is as long as I get everything done. None of that tired sluggish feeling for me no more. Life's great when you're full of energy.

    Constantly Moving

    My sleep patterns move about all over the place. Sometimes I sleep in the day, sometimes the night, sometimes part of the day or part of the night. It never stays the same though. It used to be a bit disorientating changing my sleep patterns all the time, but my body seems to...

    Up All Night, Sleep All Day

    I am not proud of this, but I am basically up all night and sleep all day. I don't know how it got this bad, but it has and now I feel as if I'm stuck. I've tried to go to bed early, but I'm not tired, so I spend time online and write. Now there are these upstairs neighbors...
