I have an affliction. Even when I’m really tired, it’s hard for me to go to sleep. Take now for instance. I don’t have anything immediately due. No midterms. I’m sick, yet I’m still up, browsing randomly and listening to music.
I’ve been doing this for a long time, even before college. I do question my sanity at times, because it doesn’t make sense.
And it’s not that I can’t sleep. I’m not an amnesiac – I’ll fall right asleep when my head hits the pillow. It’s just that “last” YouTube video, or that “last” article, or that “last” song that keeps me from physically moving to the bed.
On the one hand, it’s nice because I feel I can get more done. On the other hand, I should sleep.
Maybe I just like the peace and quiet of being up at odd hours, when there’s absolutely nothing going on and your thoughts are crystal clear. No distractions, no noise, just silence. Time alone to sort out life and reflect. It’s soothing and I embrace it.
