If there is anything about the day that I am not at peace with, or if something comes up that I have to ruminate over, or even if my obsessions keep thoughts in my head. I need relief. I need my head to be empty to sleep. Otherwise I will think about things of a variety of sorts, from what to do the next day to something that I said that could have been taken wrong. If I have a paper to write and I am having difficulties finding topics or even if I think about my ex, these thoughts bounce around and bounce off of each other in my head. Sometimes I even think about how I need to stop thinking.
