Longer than the average no. of required hours of sleep…
More powerful than coffee or other caffeinated beverages…
And able to keep your eyes open for an entire night…
It’s an energy drink.
No, it’s an apple.
No, it’s… Super Insomnia!!!
Okey, ang corny. I did just say that I wasn’t able to sleep well. You got that, right?
Gah. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I read a book. I watched reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I watched various boring stuff on TV. I turned off the lights and kept my eyes shut for several hours. I tried everything (except to drink sleeping pills, I don’t think we have those anyway). But nothing worked. I was awake from 10PM last night, until 8AM this morning. Yup. That’s 10 hours of trying to sleep and being unsuccessful. The sun had come up, everyone else in our house had woken up, and I was still trying to sleep. And I couldn’t really do anything productive either because I was trying to sleep. So I mostly wasted my time, lying on my bed with my eyes closed, but awake.
What is the cure for insomnia? I really don’t want to take sleeping pills because it kind of scares me. But I really do want to be able to sleep at the right time, and not wake up at 3 o’clock in the afternoon like I did today. I’ve lost more than half the day because of sleep, and not because I was out partying all night. It’s so unfair.
Once, I was in bed with my eyes closed for at least 2 hours (I checked the clock every so often) and nothing was happening. I couldn’t sleep nor find a comfortable position. I know I say that I can sleep anywhere, and I can— I can sleep in the car even when the road is bumpy, or in a bus even when there’s blaring music. But ironically, I seem to have the hardest time sleeping on an actual bed. Talk about having something wrong with you.
