Insomniac :|

Yes, world.. I'm an insomniac, by choice (I guess!).

Not sure what it is, but for some reason, when night falls, I find it very difficult to sleep. Not that I don't want to, not that I'm not tired, but somehow I always manage to find something else to keep me busy - no matter how insignificant that something is. The bigger problem is that I don't even fully realize just how insignificant what I'm doing is till the next morning when I'm fighting with my snooze for those extra 9 mins of sleep!! I literally lay there with 1/4th of an eye open thinking "if I sleep for another 3 mins, can I still make it on time?" (yes, those 3 mins are VALUABLE!!!)

Do you wake up in the morning thinking 'why did I do that to myself?' Do you yawn throughout the day & feel like a creature of the night? Do you wonder what possesses people to wake up before noon on their day off (why, oh why, would anyone do that)?!

If your answer is "yes", then welcome to my world.. and welcome to our club! We are those who refuse to spend 1/3rd of our life sleeping! Think about it, by the time you turn 30 (ummm, in 25 years for me!!) you'll have spent approximately 10 of those years sleeping!!! :O

I'm sure I can find something better to do with those 10 years!

(please note: sleep IS my friend, during daylight! sleeping 500 hours during the day is fine, it's just not ok to sleep that much at night!! )

i get distracted from sleep easily too.. i mean the dloads i have (movies and series etc) are enough to last me 3 months (if not more - seriously)

i just go thru them in 3 weeks

yet i dont think this has to do with the 'sleeping' part, but rather that ill do ANYTHING BUT study

seriously.. i used Ramathan (whole 4weeks) as an excuse, and Allah il3aalim what ill come up with to save me from the next 5 weeks hehe

msb: you must be doing a lot of thinking during bed time, right! that is the worst thing some one do, I know it is hard not to think during that time with the daily life trouble and God knows what do you have, but you must stop the thinking.

MSB said...

q8tyshareef: mais oui!

feras: not at all.. it's not that i can't sleep.. i DONT! if i actually drag myself to bed, most likely than not, i'll fall asleep! bs mali khelg anam! :/
