    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 rhythmic pounds. That being said, I would...

    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.

    This is literally every night of my life.

    Netflix, video games, books, and the Internet is basically what keeps me entertained till 5am.

    Mostly just smoking weed

    and watching Mystery Science Theatre. Occasionally alcohol makes its way into the equation and if I'm lucky a friend too.

    Steam, twitch, youtube,

    Netflix, books, music...anything to pass the time on another sleepless night...or nothing. Nothing is fine as well.

    Omgsh, I just came up with the best idea EVER!

    ! You know how they make those footie pajamas for kids and adults alike?! Well I'm sitting here realizing I can't find a single matching pair of socks when it hit me... They should make sweat pants with footies!! Just like a normal pair of sweat pants but with footies to keep...

    Thank God I don't have to work early.

    Partying the last 9 days on vacation didn't help much. But now I have to start working at 7:15 every morning. **** balls

    Sometimes, I wish I could be kicked out of my

    mind and thrown into sleep. I get caught up reminiscing, comparing how my life used to be to how it is now. Interestingly, I always become sad. Not because of the bad things in my past, but because of the good things. Now (the present) is good too, but completely different. I...

    I guess it makes absolutely no sense to just set up for hours on end all night but sleeping pills aren't my thing I've tried melatonin I've tried teas, I'm just resigned to the fact that I'm a night owl . now if I could just find something creative and really interesting to do...

    I sometimes have bouts of insomnia

    where I just can't switch my mind off. I end up laying in bed at 3am inanely browsing property websites for 7 figure houses that I could never afford. Or watching documentaries on flightless birds. Or making 'to do' lists. Boredom is frustrating.

    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...

    Staying up late doing nothing,

    except thinking or YouTube. Ever get lost in a thought for 3 hours on the premise if you could do blah you would fix yourself?!

    I really like YouTube surfing.

    I always end up in the same place. It's full of really weird paranormal stupid ****, it doesn't matter where I start from I'll get there eventually.

    I feel this happens less

    now that I lost a lot of my hatred for things, I still stay up ridiculuosly late but least now I can justify it with logic of playing games, watching TV or reading a book is still doing something.

    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...
