    Between my two children, Paris and London, I should be sleeping but I'm a night owl.  There's something about the night and its whispers that enthrall me.

    I can never really sleep:/ I usually have to

    take sleeping pills to sleep but i cant find the bottle of sleeping pills. So I am just awake thinking about the day I had with my boyfriend who is also my best friend. I wish I was sleeping in his arms. I always sleep best by him:/

    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...

    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.

    Bedtime comes too early in my opinion. I think at my age, I shouldn't be told when I should go to bed. There is just so much fun to be had! I don't want to miss anything. I'm probably going to be so tired at school tomorrow. Oh well! I could probably work on the homework I never...

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

    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
