    But I've never been creative and it makes my work look average, i don't know what to do. I've never looked at something and have thought "oh I wanna draw that" it's always just been "I want to draw" I don't want my work to lack anymore but I don't know how to spark my mind to...

    I always need to sleep

    but I'm usually wide awake. I have been staying up for a couple days. Last night was the only time I've gotten some decent sleep. The part that weirded me out was that I wasn't even tired I just went to sleep.

    I Don'T Know Why

    I spend almost the entire night laying in bed awake wondering if I will be able to fall asleep at all. It doesn't matter what time I have to get up in the morning I still lay there all night. I don't know if it's because I can't turn my mind off or if it's just that I'm not tired...
