    I noticed that I have my best ideas at midnight

    and it's often some ridiculous idea to change my life like, another bad diet idea or how to get her to like me. But of course, since I'm tired as ****, nothing actually happens. Sometimes, only sometimes, does stuff actually happen. I actually got the bright idea to join EP, at...

    Sshhh, Don'T Tell My Parents!

    I found a picture online and it related to my life so much and made me laugh: "When I say 'I'm going to bed,' it really means I'll lie on my bed for hours on my phone." I'll play my silly but fun games on my iPod until midnight then really go to bed. Or I'll watch a bunch of...

    Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

    Oh really? Well what about when the number is different by 12 years? How's that for a number? And how about when you really don't have anything in common with this person or when "we don't think the same or have the same views in life"? I rest my case. It really doesn't help when...

    It's like my mind races through the night.

    Thinking about my day, my past, my future, running scenes through my head of things that should've happend in my life or just thinking about all things I wish I had. It's like a peaceful time, quiet and no one bothers you. I could be awake till 2 in the morning just playing...

    I have not been able to get to sleep before 6 or 7 AM in over a year. I run two businesses both of which are failing because of my sleep problems. It's not that I can't sleep, it n is that I feel so much better at night than I do during the day. I've been to countless doctors...

    I've always made a habit of staying up late

    and have never understood why. I seem to like when everyone else is asleep and it's quiet and peaceful in the house. Must be psychological too since the internet, TV and books all seem to get more interesting the later it gets. Similar to a feeling you get when forced to study...

    I don't sleep well, I wake up all hours of the night. This is why I'm on here tonight. I heard about this site through a friend. I thought it would be better to write then to be up all night just staring off in space (even if no one reads this or cares). It's just nice to feel...
