    I get involved in something in my room

    and lose track of time. When I look up at the clock I am always surprised to see its three a.m. Or later! I have to get to the station early to get the train into Perpignan.

    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'm up until at least 3 am every night.

    it's starting to get to me cuz I ended up exhausted all the next day but still barely sleep. it's also hella boring, I've played through all my games at least once, there's no one to talk to. I feel like I'm losing whats left of my mind most nights.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 can be dragging all day at work,

    barely able to keep my eyes open at dinner but around 9 pm I am wide awake. I tell myself "go to bed, you know you need to be up before 6 am". 1 am I am still awake. Sometimes I get lucky and have an awesome conversation on EP with someone that isn't being a troll. In that case...

    I have problems sleeping

    and I realise yes I may lose a few more minutes of sleep or an hour or a couple. To distracting myself but it's a nicer feeling then feeling hopeless, and having nothing to do. EP and others. It's just somehow to give false hope and make the night feel somewhat better.
