    I Am Tired and Has Nothing to Do, But I Just Don't Want to Sleep.

    I am tired and has nothing to do, but I just don't want to sleep. Whenever I didn't do much work or finish some tasks during the day, I don't want to sleep in the night, as if I don't sleep, I can do something.

    1.34am

    I'm tired...but I know that too much has gone on today for me to be able to sleep just yet. I'll have to wait until I'm exhausted otherwise I will just toss and turn all night, at least this way I can get at least a few hours deep sleep rather than 7hours of stirring restlessly...

    But I Don't Want To

    Right now it's 2:20am and I don't want to go to sleep. I know I should get to sleep though because I have school tomorrow, so I have to wake up at 7:00am. I stayed up really late the last two nights though, so now I guess I'm used to it. I don't know, but I'm just not very tired...

    Should Be, But Oh Well.

    It's Friday night. I don't have to wake up tomorrow. And I've got beer (jeez, I'm such an alci! Drinking alone. I ought to be ashamed!) and I've got semi-decent tv. No reason to go to sleep any time soon. It's 3:40 at the moment =P Shouldn't be up too late, though =P

    for me to fall asleep and then I'll knock out. But sometimes I have trouble waking up which sucks.
