    That moment you can't sleep

    and you know your probably going to be up till five and your kinda looking forward to when the clock says 4:03 so it would be the perfect time to play your favorite shinedown song xD

    Something somebody said keeps haunting me.

    The way some people talk to others is just distasteful and disheartening. Some people's children.

    It's gotten to that time in the morning

    where I know better, and would be far better off looking to get some sleep, but....I make myself stay up. There's numerous reasons why this can happen, however it ends up coming down to this silly notion that until I feel I've achieved something significant in the time that I'm...

    I've been awake for about 33

    and a half hours now and I'm at the point where the longer I stay awake, the less I want to sleep. This always happens when I've been awake for this long. I stop getting those really tired moments and I'm just wide awake for a really long time. I like staying awake though and...

    Where do I start.... I feel like I'm venturing

    into an amazing part of my life. I've finally made a decision to start college and become a teacher. I'm in a relationship, been with him almost two years. I love him, but I don't know that I'm in love with him.. But I'm realizing that I'm not sure I've been in love in any...

    It's the middle of the day

    and I feel like sleeping but I can't because there are "things to be done". I feel like everything is all back to front. If I had my way I would sleep all day and be awake all night. Night time is when I feel energised, alive and really creative as well. Daytime leaves me numb...

    I cause to many problems on my friends.

    When I'm sad, which is almost all the time, I tell them and expect them to understand. I get mad when they don't. When my mom asks me a question, or is talking to me and then wonders why I'm so out of it, or blank. I get mad when she can't understand that my anxiety is getting...

    I've got to be awake in 3 1/2 hours.

    I'm on a first shift for one day, while I normally work nights. This is going to be painful
