    And It's Killing Me

    I wish I could just sleep but instead, there's a hug stack of homework there resulting from my incredible procrastination skills. I hate myself.

    No One Respects That I Need To Sleep

    The only job I could find, after graduating college, was full time morning shift at a retail type of place. For this job, I get up at four in the morning. I've been staying with my mom since graduation, and she is disabled. My younger brother stays at home too. Some of my...

    So Tired

    Sucks living in condos when the dog below howls every night. I need to sleep so bad. Ugh Can I report this matter to strata? Cause when you and your son have to wake up at 5:30 am it's not nice hearing a dog crying every night.

    But since my knee surgery some weeks back, it is harder. Even with the pharmacy I was prescribed. Sigh.

    It's Late

    I should be in bed already. It's not THAT late yet but it's getting there, 12.45am here and my eyes are getting heavy. I don't want to go to bed yet though even though I know I should. Bed time is no fun when your going to bed alone *sigh*

    Up All Night..

    yeah, so I was pretty much up all last night writing that stupid paper (that I put off until literally the last minute...as usual).  I was pretty much finished by 6 or 7 a.m., and then I had time for a 1-2 hour nap (I wouldn't even call it going to bed), after which I...

    The Playful Child...

    Sleep caught up to me, It over powered me. Wrapped in shadows fall. Encompassed by comfort and darkness. It reminded me as you did, I can't go indefinitely without it. It reminded me that it helps to speed the time. It reminded me to just slow down. It reminded me of good things...

    Sleep? What's that? I don't need sleep anymore.

    I've learned to do without it. I can't remember when I got a good nights sleep. Nowadays if I sleep 3 hours out of 24 it's a lot. Reason being when my mother was alive. The last few years of her life she was very sick and needed 24 hour care. I guess I'm still in that mode...

    I have trouble sleeping. I am lucky to get 2-3 hours a night for weeks on end. It's hard to deal with the world when lack of sleep is messing with your brain.
