I Sometimes Stay Up Really Late

    Sometimes I go to sleep at like 12

    and wake up around 12 on the weekends, which is a pretty decent time. But sometimes I end up going to bed at like 6 am and wake up around 3 pm... And on school nights I go to sleep at about 11 and wake up around 6:25, even though I have to be at school by 7:30.

    3:48 A.m.

    What do you think? Yeah, I stay up late. Night time is my time. It's so quiet and peaceful. As I sit here tonight with the windows open, I hear only crickets and the soft sounds of my two dogs sleeping nearby. The TV is playing but I tune it out in my mind so that I have no idea...

    Sometimes I want to open my window in te middle

    of the night and yell at the top of my lungs "I'm tired of this life!" With so much force it's hard to believe I'm dying inside, but so much anguish it's harder to believe I'm kidding.

    I Just Don't Sleep

    When I was younger, one of the jobs I held was working third shift at a gas station...I loved that job. I have always been a night owl. Now that I am older and a "more mature individual", I have a "normal" 9-5 job. For the past 4-5 years, I have started...

    It's six am here. I can't go to sleep

    because I'm waiting for a message from my friend in Spain. Changes give me a lot of anxiety, but there's nothing I appreciate more than new scenery. I am trying to set up a job for the summer in Spain right now, dealing cards here in the states is not enough for me. I need to...

    More like I always stay up late.

    ..such a night owl. But I feel more mentally awake, creative and productive at night. Even though at night so many thoughts are running through my brain I find it's a good time to sort out my thoughts and make sense of things

    around 9:30 I usually go to "bed".

    A.K.A: watch YouTube for five hours before falling asleep on a video and not remembering anything about it the next day... :/

    It Has Really Become An Unhealthy Habit

    My sometimes has become an always - and that is not good.  I have a lot of friends on here that are after me now - trying to get me to promise that I will go to bed at a decent hour.  I have good intentions, but one more comment, one more story, one more private message...

    When My Mind Refuses To Shut Up

    Sometimes my mind just want to stay awake and if I stubbornly refuse to take my medications I stay up all night.  But lately it has been kind of quiet, perhaps too quiet but at least I can sleep without aid.

    The latest I have stayed up is 5 in the morning.

    And on school nights I stay up until 11 at night. Then when it's a break I stay up until 2 in the morning.

    Relatively The Same Schedule All The Time...with Slight Hiccups

    Lately I wont get to bed until 5 or 5:30 in the morning. I wake up around 2pm. I don't know how I got into such a bad schedule. But eh, it'll have to do. Sometimes I sleep only 4 hours though. Not such a healthy thing to do. Changing schedule meh.
