So, you have finished brushing your teeth, you are ready in your comfy pants and all set to slip under your comfy blanket. And as soon as you slide under it, you fall asleep in 5 minutes.
This is how you plan to go to bed. But the reality is very different. In fact, on most days, you find yourself looking at the ceiling even at 3 am. Either the bed is getting itchy, or you are not comfortable, nevertheless, even you know that you won't be able to sleep. Well, I am one such person.
Right when I am about to sleep, various thoughts start coming into my head. And rather than fighting, I let them all in. Who wants such nights? But even when I know I have to wake up early, my brain keeps working overtime.
Well if you ask me, here are few unusual thoughts that I have...
There are days when I don't have time to speak to my parents. Do they think that I am disappointing them? I hope they don't believe that I am taking them for granted. Gosh! I am such a bad daughter.
I suddenly remember an incident that happened years ago. "Okay, it was awkward. But do they still think about it? UGH?"
After a while, I overcome my resistance of taking my phone out. *Scrolls Facebook.* Realise that no one else is online as they are probably asleep.
*Scrolls Instagram.* See that people on Instagram have such a fantastic life.
*Opens Twitter. Closes Twitter.*
Did I close the door properly? Is there someone out there? What if I sleep with a leg out of my blanket and someone grabs it?
Okay, so I spent a great day with him. It was so much fun.
But does he feel the same? Did he enjoy the time he spent with me? Or was he just faking it all?
In the middle of all these thoughts, comes this feeling that I need to go pee. No matter how much I try to ignore, this sense never leaves. And in the end, I get up and pee. *UGH*
Now, this is situational. My brain plays back all the moments where I could have had a good comeback. Sometimes I prepare myself for a situation that is never-ever-ever going to happen.
Why am I wasting my time in all this crap? I am here for a reason; I have some goals, I have some dreams. I have to fulfil them. I have to make myself proud. I just have one life and I have to do something anyhow that can create a difference.
I am a pro at this. Even though a part of me knows that this is not going to happen, I still do it. And what happens next, everyone knows it.
...I sleep till 8:30.
Then I get up and rush to work.
And I am late to office, once again.
