    Well, The Math Never Adds Up....so I Guess I'm Scrooge!

    Did the whole Christmas thing. His family, my family. God knows it was expensive. So, I got stationery, a bird feeder, a neck scarf (alpaca mind you), red wine aerator,( cool), candy, anyway, I'm not ungrateful; really. I took soooo much time buying his family gifts, and mine...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Netflix-great Way To Pass Time

    I can't fall asleep. Probably more so now than I could have an hour ago. I figured why not watch the Walking Dead since I skipped the first two seasons when I started watching them. Bad idea. I'm usually okay with scary/horror videos but never with zombie stuff that has good...

    Nighttime Is When Everything Comes Alive

    When night comes, and everyone has gone to sleep, I stay up because I think that I'm going to catch a glimpse of something that no one else would experience the chance to see. I feel that everything that has a fear of the light will reveal itself in the dark, and I just want to...

    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...

    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...
