One might think there’s something romantic about a late night. The dim lights, the silent house, the rustle of the wind outside.
There isn’t. I couldn’t sleep. I got into bed at 10:30 and fell asleep at 4:30. That’s six hours of non-romance. It was frustrating. The crazy thing was, my brain was totally awake and processing the implications of the situation while also enjoying the game of keeping me awake.
I finished reading The Bell Jar. I watched three episodes of Friends. I meditated. I ate cereal. I took everything off my bed and put it all back. I solved a math question.
I did everything but sleep. My body is like “you suck” and my brain is like “yay I won!” and I’m like dead.
What do you do when you can’t sleep?
Insomnia for the win,
Even when you’re sleeping, keep your eye-eyes open. -Eyes Open, Taylor Swift
P.s. Happy second birthday “Sick and Sick of It”!!! Rather than creating a virtual cake with candles, you’re each invited to just write a wish in the comments below. I think my wish is obvious at this point.
