    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

    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.
