Hello world.

I can't understand why I woke up at 04:46 this morning, unable to get back to sleep.

I got a rotten sleep the night before and I spent nearly an hour at the gym yesterday. Surely, it then follows that I should have been exhausted after that, but it seems that I'm somehow going to have to get through today having had five hours' sleep instead of the seven on which I planned.

Among other things, your brain produces a chemical called hemopressin that acts as an appetite suppressant but the shorter you sleep, the less it produces and the more you want to eat. I'm trying to lose weight and this is not helping.

Carry on.

you probably like to watch movies/tv/download things off the internet.....
anyone here have a rapidshare account and want to share the info?
I will owe you, or
I will send you mail art, or
a mix tape/cd/upload mix
or, if you live near me,
hang out with you at 4 in the morning.
i do not pay rapidshare on general principals (which you should in no way share)!
If you share your username/password with me I will love you forever....

Physics and Icons

Hi! I'm new to this community. It's 1.55am here in the UK. I have just watched a lengthy programme about quantum theory, then I read up on all the bits I didn't understand. When I say "read up on," I mean looked on Wikipedia. This probably means I am vastly more misinformed about atoms than I was before tonight began. I haven't studied Physics since school. I hated it. All this complex information should have made me sleepy. I'm sure I used to sleep frequently during all science lessons in school. My Physics = Sleep theory failed. I think I shall resort to watching House and taking codeine.

Does anyone have any interesting sleep-related icons? There must be some insomniac icon makers amongst you.

the credits are rolling.....

it's 1:42 am..  the movie is over.. in this case the movie was True Romance..  which just happens to contain the best fight scene ever (imho) between Patricia Arquette and Tom Sizemore!   (there's nothing better than finding a cork-screw keychain at the perfect moment!)    


i guess i'll go read some more of Good Omens as i'm not yet sleepy enough to turn out the lights...  


Hello hello. How is everyone?

Soo I started taking Zoloft and I have not been able to fall asleep at night, if any of you guys are on it, do you have this problem??  After many many sleepless nights I decided to drop out of college and go to beauty school.  I think it's the best decision I have ever made.  Seriously.  I know people say that it's horrible to drop out. But dang.  It felt amazing.  I also dyed my hair a reddish color and went on a diet.YAY.

Well I will quit rambling and leave you with a couple pictures of my kitties.
this is pepper.

this is mr.sprinkles(it's a girl cat)

annd this is the new haircolor.


Even sleep won't let me sleep

So I'm just going to post here... and no, this isn't a whining post!

Just something I've noticed lately. For the past few days I've been able to indulge in my night owl like ways. However, no matter how tired I am I wake up after only 5 or 6 hours of sleep. I am totally unable to fall asleep again, and am not even able to take a nap. At first I'm very energized but as the day goes on I find myself without energy, but also unable to sleep.

Today marked a more extreme way in that I woke up 4 or 5 times between 6 and 6:30 am... Not very much fun that.

Anyone else ever have this happen?

Oh well, being up so late isn't that bad, I just got a new SLR camera and once I get a tripod I'll be able to take some nice night time photos!

hello from a new zombie...

i'm not an insomniac so much as a night owl.. i can, and do sleep.. just not at night.. i feel the most energized and inspired and creatve at night.. i always have.. even in school.. of course, it never helped that i am an avid procrastinator.. therefore, all projects/assignments were put off until the last possible minute..  which never failed to be 2am the morning before said project/assignment was due.. 

i sit now watching the end of pride & prejudice and typing this.. wondering whether or not i should put in another movie when this finishes or amble off to bed for the required 2 hours of tossing and turning before falling into a fitful sleep...   suggestions?
