Sleep Is For People Who Need It How does one know when they’ve developed insomnia? Is it the sleepless nights? Or is this the thoughts that entertain your mind while you shuffle your face in your pillow from side to side?

How is it possible for someone who wakes up so early to experience such late nights?

I guess you can say this is one of my biggest fears. I know what you’re probably thinking: but no, this isn’t Silvia satirically posting about her fears. I thought I’d just share a few thoughts about how my senior year is going so far.

I can’t remember the last time I actually had a decent night’s rest. It seems as if every time I have an opportunity to sleep, something disrupts this.

Whether it be homework, socializing or an ever so tempting episode of “Bad Girls: All Stars”, I can never find enough time in the day to lay my head to rest.

I’ve thought on many occasions that I should resort to other methods of falling asleep. Maybe I could take some pills that’ll eliminate all of my problems? Or maybe I could go see a therapist so I could just get to the root of the problem?

Is it colleges that’s weighing heavily on me? It can be quite hypnotizing waiting for an admissions decision to either be sent to my inbox or mailbox.

Or maybe the restlessness is being caused by my wanting of adventure. It is second semester of senior year.

Whatever the case may be, I am determined to find out why I’m suffering from this mild case of insomnia.

Maybe not writing this blog at 11:00 pm is the first step?
