    Like A Child

    I swear I don't get enough sleep...and it's all my own fault...I'm like a little kid who doesn't want to go to sleep because they're afraid they might miss something or they simply don't want to go to sleep even though they do...does that make sense?...I love love love sleeping...

    Sleep Anxiety

    I have such bad sleep anxiety. I'm actually afraid of sleeping now. Just completely afraid of sleeping. :( I stay up till 2am when I give up and pass out listening to reruns of Whose Line is it Anyway. It sucks.
