    So, I am an insomniac.

    Insomnia is lonely. I used to get up and do house work but when it's all done then what? Facebook is boring, pervs are trolling on the dating sites late at night, not much on TV, can't let myself get sucked into another Netflix marathon so I usually just think about crap. Too...

    I stayed up really late thinking

    and rethinking about an interesting conversation I had. Why do we meet the people we meet, and what exactly to do with them?

    Except tonight I am doing something,

    and here I thought I'd get to sleep comfortably after my hot shower. But nope my oldest is sicker. I'll probably be checking on him most of the night, he probably escalated to what ever the little one has/d. & then there's that big *** Effing mistake I made: I accidentally...

    Seems like I'm nocturnal.

    Apparently because night is silence. and when silence occured, there's peace in my thoughts.

    just lay there and think.

    that's it. piece together bits and pieces of things, following a trail of breadcrumbs I don't really think is wise for my sanity. even the most vague of statements can provide context and clarity to a situation.

    Yes. Sitting on my bed.

    In the dark. At 3:37AM. Starring at my wall. I live an exciting life, as you can see.

    Yeah that's my life..

    . Always stay up late until 4 am everyday and do absolutely nothing. Wake up in the next day and walking like a jet lagged zombie to college but I can't help. I love doing it <3

    It's an every night thing

    for me, and has been for years. I've always enjoyed the night more than the day so I suppose that's why I prefer being up late, even if I'm doing nothing at all lol.

    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...

    and it's bad considering I'm a student. I usually CANNOT no matter what I do to make myself fall asleep, hell I even tried exercising to get rid of energy. I usually stay up until 2-3 AM sometimes I pull all nighters, day time I'm tired as hell and unmotivated, at night though...

    I only stay up if there's something to do

    or someone to talk to, however I realize that everyone in the world is busy so talking is kind of limited and it's nighttime so nothing really happens much. Other than pig out with whatever's in the fridge. meh

    it isn't nothing. the tv stays on.

    the silence disturbs me. my books lie scattered on my bed and floor. they make me feel useful and busy. I smoke like a chimney to take 'breaks' its five am. boom! confusing. is it the start or the end of my day?

    Not necessarily nothing.

    More like, nothing productive. I do, however, watch Netflix, read, listen to music and make up impossible scenarios that will never happen.
