    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...

    I have stayed up super late

    for many years. I find nighttime to be truly serene and calming. I feel it's the time of day when I have no real obligations that need taking care of immediately, so I can relax and do whatever I want. This means I generally do nothing too productive. I just enjoy the quiet and...

    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 insomnia so bad.

    I work and go to school and when I'm not doing that I'm running errands I would think I'd be exhausted since I'm always busy.

    Couldn't sleep, so I put on a movie.

    I know I'll need to watch it again, but wow... Synecdoche New York was incredible. I was thoroughly confused/inspired/scared/entertained.

    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 like to talk to myself

    and my own problems out loud because let's face it, no one really wants to listen. It's boring and makes me look self-centered. Most of the time, i would rather be alone than with all these critics.

    I don't understand why I stay up

    so late when I'm not actually doing nothing! I'm not watching anything, or reading, listening to music, chatting to friends etc... Nothing! My mind refuses to switch off... It wants a purpose! So I try and read but it doesn't like that either! I'll just stare at my ceiling...

    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...

    Probably Why I'm On Here And Not In Bed

    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...
