#5c: Sleep Help

The other night when I was lying awake, I stared at the ceiling, and I thought about…

Sleeping. It’s always on my mind. When I first wake up and can’t seem to peel myself fromalarm my comforter’s warm embrace. When I step outside into the cold air and strain not to hurtle myself back through my front door. When I sit down in class and stare at a blackboard with blurred lines of chalk forming endless homework assignments. I think about sleep,

And how I never get more than 4 hours of it.

This blog has been about the things that I think about when I lie awake in bed. But the only reason it exists is because I can’t fall asleep.

#4d: Cats, Dogs, and Owners.

The other night when I was lying awake, I pulled the blankets tight, and I thought about…

People who speak for their pets. We’ve all seen the lady who when she introduces you to dogher dog says, “She says hi!” Now, don’t get me confused for someone who hates animals. I love them and I own several. But there are different levels of this cross species mind reading:

–          Those people who know their animals personalities and therefore articulate it in words because the animal cannot, i.e “Oh don’t worry about the barking, she barks when she plays with other dogs.”

–          The people who are convinced that using baby talk and a high pitched voice is necessary in a conversation that must be had during awkward interactions on walks, i.e “Goochie-goochie-goo oh my god you’re puppys so cute!”

–          The people who give narration to everything their animal does, i.e “Oh I’m gonna go smell that tree! I wonder how many other dogs have peed here?!”

I’ve taken the liberty to put these people into two categories for clarification:

#3d: Zombies

The other night when I was lying awake, in between blankets on and blankets off, I thought about…

A zombie apocalypse. The idea of it is becoming so popular, how could I not think about zzit? With popular T.V series like The Walking Dead, and Brad Pitt battling them in World War Z, it’s not something that’s easy to ignore. I’m a firm believer in the fact that this shit is eventually going to go down. I’m so pumped. Smashing in zombie teeth with a baseball bat? I was born for this.

Now, let’s get serious. We’re going to need an escape plan. I’m going to, against the best wishes of those involved in my plan, let you in on a few tips. I’m trusting you.

#2e: Happy Birthday

The other night when I was lying awake, in between toss and turn, I thought about…

Birthdays. It’s your birthday. You hear the rustling in the kitchen. Cupboards slam, the fridge opens, and the sound of the flint sparking breaks the awkward silence. You wait for the inevitable shutting off of the lights. The peoples faces to glow from the candle light. And then, it happens.

musicHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUmusic

That song. That horrid, horrid song. Just thinking about it makes me anxious.

Why is this song so long?

#1c: Rich and Famous

The other night when I was lying awake, in between yawn and stretch, I thought about…

The truth is…

I swear, I did. I’d put my head on the pillow and fall right asleep. It was so easy. Some nights I’d even fall asleep on the couch and magically transport to my bed. Impressive, I know.

Unfortunately I’m not 7 anymore, and life happened.
