Aren't the holidays supposed to be relaxing? Well, I am exhausted, frankly.
My brain DOES NOT shut up at night, and I can never sleep in.
I wish we didn't have to sleep at all. I could be a vampire.Here's a random little not-so-poemy diary in second person writing I did after a particularly hard night.
Three AM
By someone who really shouldn’t write.

It’s 11 o’clock when you go to bed.
It’s 1 o’clock and you realize you haven’t been to sleep yet.
You try to sleep after taking a Melatonin.
You move to the couch and try to situate yourself there.
You turn on the TV
You try to take your mind off whatever it is that is going through your head.
You turn on Fuse and start to watch Top 40 Countdown.
Rihanna’s new “Disturbia” is really not a video to fall asleep to.
You watch Emperor’s New School, a show you really hate.
You fall asleep at 3 o’clock to Lilo and Stitch.
You wake up at 4:48 when you hear The Little Mermaid on.
You watch it and feel nostalgic.
This is really not the time to be nostalgic.
You try to fall asleep yet again.
Your mother comes out at 5:30 and says she needs to get ready for work.
You are forced to move to your bed.
You finally get a few hours of sleep, then wake up because your bed is too hot.
You wish you didn’t have insomnia.

Pictures from and flickr, except for the first one, which is my own.
