    I like certain qualities in people more

    than others. Things such as honesty more than kindness, respect and fairness. < pretty much the softest thing i may ever write ๐Ÿ˜‚but still true ๐Ÿ˜„

    Nothing Ado About Much

    The clock on the monitor currently reads twelve twenty in the morning and dare I say, I am far from sleepy. I wish I could sleep, a headache.. or migraine rather is pretty determined to hold me tightly within the confines of its' abysmal rhythmicย pounds. That being said, I would...

    Staying up late doing nothing,

    I Love It

    Although it's terribly inconvenient and a bad habit, I love staying up all night and sleeping all day. There's something about the night that's cozy and sexy. This probably sounds totally weird, but night feels so much more comfortable than the day.

    Is it still consider "Staying up"

    if some nights I never go to bed?... I have insomnia. I can't get my mind to shut down...my thoughts constantly circle and scrape together, like a rock tumbler, but instead of polishing something ordinary into tiger's eye perfection, my thoughts are scrambled into broken...

    Thank God I don't have to work early.

    Not As Much Anymore...

    I was definitely a night owl when I was younger, as a teen and in college. There were times my entire sleeping pattern was reversed because I would stay up all night and then sleep during the day. Now that I'm a respectable adult (:P), with a regular job, I can't pull the all...

    My gosh. I ran out of pot 2 days ago

    and I get terrible insomnia when I quit cold turkey like this. I don't even smoke all that often! I haven't gone to bed yet and it's 7am :( Clearly, I need a life.

    Pretty much what it says.

    Idk why I don't want to go to sleep because I love sleep. I feel like I'll miss something. Plus there's this guy. He wants me but not in a lets be together way. More like a lets "get together" kinda way. Pretty sure I can't let it happen anymore.

    Not Necessarily A Bad Thing, Not Always Convenient

    I kind of see it as a sign that I have a spark of life going in me, to be wanting to stay up and not not want a single moment. Take most times I travel, I find myself wanting to stay up late both the night before going there and the last night I am there. But mostly when I do...

    Does Ep Count As Absolutely Nothing?

    I don't fall asleep easily, because my thoughts are always swirling around insanely inside my head, keeping me awake. I I lay in bed, and stare at the ceiling and make up little scenarios in my head, and think, and think, and think, until its three o'clock in the morning and I...

    It's really become a normal thing

    for me to stay up until 5am. Even if I wake up early like 10am (yes that's early for me) I still am awake until 4am-5am ish
