    The Problem..

    The problem with restraining speech is; who gets to make the rules? If it's only okay to say certain things at a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

    This Is Going to Be Another One of Those Nights...

    Sometimes, it's multiple thought processes going on simultaneously, and sometimes it's very specific things that keep me up thinking.  Right now it's both - very specific, multiple thought processes.  I'd do anything to be able to go to sleep right now. ...

    An Unconventional Relationship

    Last month, I met an amazing man, unfortunately. Yep, unfortunately. I was perfectly happy doing my own thing, and extremely excited to love and live my newly-single life, with my not-so-newly-single girlfriends. Before he walked into the room, my male friend had told me...

    Just Too Much

    I find myself up during the nights, just staring at the ceiling. Thinking about my day, my life, my future. So many questions unanswered... waiting, wanting so to feel complete. It's my only time for me, when all are asleep and the TV is off and it's just peaceful.

    Willing

    I physically willed myself to go to sleep last night, to no avail. The mind awoke and it started on a path of its own, one that I could not stop and had to follow.  I was thrown on the path and shoved along it.  I was unable to stop the thoughts and know that I need to...

    This is one such experience

    which can completely leave you exhausted. Been through this several times. I came out with one conclusion that thinking at night doesn't help at all. Coz your mind is actually not thinking but just wandering from one thought to another with too many what if questions which have...

    About My Existence

    I am not sure I believe in it.  How can I prove I exist?  There is no possible way of proving it. No true scientific way. I could just be imagined, you could be imagined

    Late-night Philosophizing

    Nothing like the middle of the night to get your head spinning. Not only could we be a figment of someone else's imagination, but that person could be insane, for all we know! I have no religious feeling whatsoever, so that's neither a comfort nor a burden to me. I feel lucky...

    How fitting is the picture for this group? A chimp, posing as if he was the 'thinker'. The pity of staying up all night, everynight, thinking away is: The net result is always nothing. I never come up with a conclusion nor an ending to anything. The magical answer eludes...

    You can either chase life

    or simply run away from death, it's your choice you can be alive but not be really living and I think we need to find a way to chase life even when it's hard because I think a lot of people just float through life not really getting out and living. We need to make the best of...

    About Everything and Nothing At the Same Time

    I haven't been going to sleep until around 8 or 9 in the morning. I just can't sleep. I think way entirely too much and it keeps me awake. So I have to do other things to keep my mind busy or I'll drive myself crazy.

    Every night I close my eyes

    and recall what I did during the day and I am mostly not proud of what I did. I looked so stupid,immature .reckless. It's feel like that's not the real me. I just can't sleep and keep thinking what should I've done instead.
