Day 51 — Restless

I didn’t manage to drift off to sleep until 2:30am last night. My mind was active and I kept on watching TV and then browsing useless videos on my phone.

I’m not crazy young anymore. I need my damn sleep! But my body just didn’t want to have any of it. I wish I could’ve pinpointed what was on my mind. Maybe somewhere in the back of my consciousness I was doing back flips over reaching 50 straight days, maybe it was something else.

One thing that’s only come into my life in the last year is the fear of missing out on sleep. It didn’t have an effect on me when I was 18 but now? I feel it.

Here’s to hoping this doesn’t happen again for a while…
