12:47am

So it’s pretty late (or early, however you wanna look at it), and I’m still up. Why? Well, this is my daily routine. It doesn’t matter what time I wake up in the morning (for example, this morning was 8:30), I will still not go to bed until after midnight – usually between 1-2am, but it’s been as late as 3am. I just can’t sleep. I’m generally tired, and then I’ll go to bed, but I’ll lie in bed for at least a half hour before I even begin to nod off. It’s something I can always remember having.
They say that the average person gets to sleep in 7 minutes. I’m obviously a little more than the average person, then. It does suck sometimes, especially if you know you have to be somewhere the next morning and you’re saying to yourself, “Go to sleep now, you need to get up in the morning.” I get frustrated with myself.
Never mind. I don’t have anywhere to be tomorrow :)

    I am the same way…unless I am just completely exhausted, I will lay in bed for at least 20-30 minutes before falling asleep. It sucks cause James is asleep in about 5, 10 at the most, minutes, and I’m just laying there alone…

    Oh man…I’ve been an insomniac since I was like 7! I can’t stop myself from thinking once I lay down! Plus, I’ve developed some bad habits (reading, watching tv) in bed, so it takes about an hour for me to fall asleep. I’m a light sleeper, too…so I’ll inevitably wake up two or three times a night. I also like the quiet that engulfs the world at nighttime. It’s peaceful, and the only solitude I can find sometimes. So, it’s bittersweet, having insomnia.
