Right now, I can’t sleep.
I don’t know why but I just cannot get to sleep. I lay here and try to relax and my mind just whirrs and buzzes, refusing to power down. I’ve tried everything. I’ve counted sheep, I’ve counted backwards from a hundred (an old family favourite for when I couldn’t sleep as a child), I’ve thought of happy memories of peacful places and still nothing. Nada. Zip. Squat.
My predicament isn’t helped by the fact that my house has incredibly thin walls and the guy that lives next door has a particularly loud snoring problem. Yes, if you happen to read this, you are not helping this matter.
Classical music and smooth jazz haven’t helped either. I’m very tired but just cannot get to sleep. I hate these nights.
