Wee Regrets

I’m a worrier. You had probably noticed that. I’m a worrier who worries about big things, little things, middle-sized things. All The Things [tm], to quote Hyperbole and a Half. If it’s out there, I’ve probably worried about it at least once, from Yosemite blowing up and exterminating my family (okay, that was a short-lived, [...]

AAAAAAAAAAA!

That utterly inarticulate topic pretty much sums up the last few days; the bright, glowing highlight was meeting Katie, my very first FA friend (if you don’t count someone pointed in the direction of my journal by someone else in FA, that is).

I haven’t been sleeping well lately. In a complete failure of my brain’s ability to compartmentalize the parts of my day with the times in which I am most able to cope with them, I find myself awake at 3 AM worrying about grad school applications, or stressing about the ongoing ex-landlord debacle, or freaking [...]

Insomnia

Why yes, I’m up at 2.15 am. Why do you ask? My sleep has gotten increasingly worse over the last month and at the moment my weird sinusy-flu bug is not helping at all. I simply can’t find a comfortable position where, upon dozing off, I’m not almost instantly startled awake by not being able [...]
