    I know I should be sleeping right now

    but playing on my phone is a lot more fun than nightmares and waking up to more anxiety and lack of messages..

    It's true. Yesterday I slept at 1:00 am

    and woke up at about 3:30 am... But I woke up from a horrifying dream that left me in tears. In my dream I was crying and begging. So I didn't sleep back because I'm paranoid my dream would continue so I didn't sleep at all.

    The title is pretty accurate,

    and some reasons are because it's not good to sleep at crazy hours and barely get any sleep when I do sometimes. Another is because I've been seeing dark appear under my eyes. So not enough sleep is effecting my psychical a little, ugh. I know. I don't have a sleeping schedule...

    If there was no homework,

    no tests, no stress, I would get more sleep, be more happy, and overall a better person.

    Can't seem to sleep. Heartburn sure doesn't

    help. But when your mind wanders just enough so that you don't lie still and welcome sleep. Well that doesn't help either lol. Alas sleep evades a restless mind. Chamomile tea anyone? Think I'll have a cup.
