First, and most importantly: Happy birthday, [ profile] moorishflower! I love you, darling. Have a wonderful day.

Secondly, I don't know why I'm at all surprised that I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't get back to sleep. I guess I shouldn't complain, since I did get about five hours of sleep, but... I have so much to do today and I could have used a little bit more rest.

Emi stays up until 1am. I got to sleep around 11:30 after she stopped using Skype for the night. I don't feel too bad about using my computer while she's asleep and the room is dark because I didn't have trouble sleeping when that's what she was doing.

The dining hall opens at 6:45. I told the boys I'd meet them for breakfast at 8. I'm thinking about going to grab a cup of coffee and then seeing if I can sign up for my swim test in the hour between... not to take it, just to sign up for it. Taking it would be later in the morning, in between meetings.

At least waking up this early gives me time to catch up on all the fanfiction I didn't read last night. Priorities, still right in order. xD

The wind has been howling since, hm, about 3 am. I have been awake since 3:45. I have spent the past five and a half hours with my eyes closed trying to convince myself that I really can fall asleep if I just try a little harder. It obviously did not work.

I have to be awake now because I have an assload of stuff still to do for English Lit if I don't want to completely fail the first module. I need to do five more discussion posts to get an A (and I'm not entirely sure if that's eight over the entire module or eight per discussion, I'm hoping the former because otherwise I have 21 to do and that's just not happening) and I still need to read the assigned parts of Don Juan so I can start this essay on Byronic heroes, which I can't finish today because I need two research sources for it and my login for the school library is not working for some asinine reason, so I need to hit the library tomorrow after I meet with the PTK adviser.

...oh yeah, and I have to do the PTK paperwork, the 100-word summary of a Sumerian myth, and half of the assigned reading on the male divine for Mythology. I think tomorrow we get to watch Jaynestown in class, so that's a pretty huge incentive to be there. At least one of my classes is rewarding.

All I want to do is get a couple more hours of sleep, but if it didn't happen between 4 and 9 am, it's not going to suddenly happen in the late morning. And I can't afford to waste any time anyway. Of course, I want to waste it. I would rather do just about anything than this English Lit work, and in "just about anything" I include such things as bathing my cat, scooping the dog doo in the backyard, and removing my leg hair with tweezers. If I were a less scrupulous person I would offer to pay someone to write the essay for me, but that's cheating and cheaters never win, or something along those lines.

I realize that in the grand scheme of things, my problems are not so bad. Things could be worse... I could be in church right now. My mom asked me if I wanted to come with when she saw that I was awake. I was like, "uh, no thanks, got homework to do." She probably thought I was lying. Now I have to do it or I am a liar. Not that I'm not already a liar several dozen times over, but that's not the point, the point is I don't want to be a liar about this. least when it gets too depressing I can just go back in my journal and ogle hot people until my spirits lift again. 60 pictures is a pretty decently sized picspam for encouragement purposes. Looking back over the list, it is pretty clear that I strongly favor brunettes. It's about even between blue-eyed brunettes and brown-eyed brunettes. Kristen Bell was the lone blonde to make the list this time. There have been others before, but she's made the list three times running, and I know Zachary Quinto's been on it all three times. so I guess they're the reigning champs of my list of hotties. :D If you click the to do list tag, you can see my lists from 2008 and 2005 (I don't know why I didn't properly tag 2006 or 2007) and oh man back in 2005 I was such a (fake) news whore it's not even funny. xD Okay I need to stop looking through old posts and get to work now.

...but I spent the last hour looking through 2007's posts so I could properly tag the list, so now you can see a long chain of how predictable my crushes are. And hey, Adam Baldwin made it back onto the list after a skipped year, so good for him!

Well, that was about the most miserable night of not sleeping I've had in a while.

I feel like a wet noodle. :( I don't want to go to class, I want to bury myself under blankets and try to get some real fucking sleep, but that didn't happen in the past ten hours so it probably wouldn't happen in the next five.

Strange dreams in which Kirk was a kindergarten teacher and McCoy was a priest. WTF?

Sleeping pattern is back to the usual fucked up: fell asleep at 11, woke up at 1, fell asleep at 2, woke up at 4, fell asleep at 5, woke up at 9:30. Thinking strongly about double-dosing Lunesta tonight and seeing if I can sleep the whole night through, or if I'm doomed as long as I'm on Lamictal. It only took me this long to figure out which pill was making me insomniac because stopping taking my medication is a stupid idea, lol.

I have an appointment in 2 hours, and I'm hoping to at least start something by then. I've got the hand-painting fic partially figured out, and really the setup is the hard part, once I get into the swing of it I'm set.

Rachael might be coming to the mall with us today. As long as she's not with her friends she's more tolerable to be with... she really is funny when she's not being a brat. She just turned 16 a week and a half ago. Julia's turning 18 in four months. I feel so old, you guys, my baby sisters are growing up.

Oh, I got my financial aid award total yesterday in the mail... and it's about $1000 more than the cost of tuition. Not to mention the $2500 from the Salvation Army, I am SO paying all my billz especially the $300 I still owe for probation in Plattsburgh omg oops and giving my parents money for supporting my sad ass and maybe, just maybe I will get the iPhone I have been lusting for since it came out. :3

Heck, maybe I'll splurge and get pants that fit, now that I'm not a 38 waist any more. xD

Okay okay getting to writing now, I just had to flail a little bit! :D

ONE, one hour of sleep! Ah-hah-hah.

/The Count

So my new plan is: go until I can't go any more, sleep.

I totally forgot that I volunteered to make the [ profile] heroes_slash awards banners for section one. So now I have a lot more to do, either today or over the next week depending on whether my parents hate me or not.

No, that's not fair, I know. They don't have any idea that I have a life, even if it is on the internet. I really wonder what they think I do all day...

Yeah. So. I have those on my plate. And now I know I didn't win any, so... that's good to know beforehand, I guess? :/

I really wish I could sleep without taking pills.

Okay, I should... probably get on finding pictures to make those banners. Yep.

eta 8am: Well. I actually saved two banners marked "winter 2008" instead of 2009. Thank god they were easy and unnoticeable fixes, but maybe I shouldn't be doing them right now.

Although, I did a kickass job of isolating Peter out of a background, kthx. I hope these banners aren't ugly. I'm trying to make them something I'd be happy to display if I won them...

5mg Ambien apparently doesn't cut it for me any more, as the every-two-hours just goes to every-three-hours now, instead of a full night of sleep.

Well, it's a good thing I'm seeing someone who can write me a new scrip in... nine hours. Ugh. Maybe I can sneak in a couple more hours.
femmealunettes: (one chai with xtra ginger and curare plz)
No fair! I took the pill, why did I still wake up?

...well, I guess I just have to raid the fridge now.

Whoa. For a second I thought I heard a ghost, but it was just Julia baby-talking one of the dogs. Freaky!

I need to go back to sleep because I'm being conscripted in some capacity tomorrow. I hope it's helping with toys and not ringing bells. x.x Stupid Ambien. Meh.

interesting tidbit

Sleep proceeds in cycles of REM and the three stages of NREM, the order normally being:

stages N1 -> N2 -> N3 -> N2 -> REM.

In humans this cycle is on average 90 to 110 minutes.

Thank you, Wikipedia, now I have some sort oflinkage between my blocks of sleep and some kind of natural pattern. (for the record, 6:15 to 8:05.)

soon, I will have a sexy yoga icon. soon.

femmealunettes: (don't know when we'll be back again)
Welp, I just fucked my sleep schedule up somethin' fierce. I felt so exhausted at 8 that I decided to go to bed... and unsurprisingly, I did what I've done EVERY TIME I've gone to sleep without Ambien in the past era, and woke up two hours later. Brilliant.

So tonight I am going to make those blondies I've been talking about making, and actually clean my room, and do some laundry, and if I can find the yoga DVD I know I have around here somewhere then I will motivate my lazy ass to do that too. I'm finally giving in to what I've been told: you can't sleep right or feel right if you don't get some motion in your life.

...not that that's stopping me from eating chocolate right now, but whatever. xD

So far most of you like my link posts just as they are, which makes me feel fuzzy on the inside, guys! :D The most requested change is more commentary, so I can try to be a little more serious about things... not like that will stop my scintillating wit, don't worry. I might put little section headers up for each general area of links.

ALSO now I kind of want a more official title for them than just "hey it's a linkdump", any suggestions? All I can come up with are lame-ass things like "Dani's Directory" and... that's lame.

Ooh. If I get all that stuff done tonight and still have energy to spare, I'm going to start on my Uber Awesome Christmas Card Thingies of Doom. \o/

This icon. It's... kind of hypnotic.

I don't even know any more, guys. Sleep and I are not on good terms with each other. I don't know if it's a problem with the bed or the pillows or my lack of proper stuffed animals or, fuck, the feng shui is off, but it can't be entirely me. I'm not this completely messed up. I can't be.

I tried to sleep, that was a fail. So now I'm sitting here with my glasses off, squinting to read the screen, halfheartedly considering trying to write but not feeling it.

Part of me wants to rearrange the room some more, and part of me thinks that other part is fucking stupid. Really, if I could get the glass shelves up here, that might fix a lot of problems, except I wouldn't be able to set up my computer on it like my brain keeps trying to convince itself I can. I need a monitor at eye level, kthx, and since my computer chair is a recliner, that means lower rather than higher...

On the bright side, I totally got most of the mailing I have to do packed up. [ profile] maggiesox, I still haven't sent out Flight of the Conchords, and the box I had it in kind of fell apart, so-- soon, I swear. Like as soon as I find a suitable replacement box.

I know I just got a bunch of new friends from the political fandom friending meme. Hi guys! I'm an insomniac and I post too much, hope you don't mind. ♥ ♥

Okay, clearly what I need is a brick to the head Rahm Emanuel to feed me cheesecake a ten minute drum solo! to put on my glasses and stop squinting. And maybe breakfast.

eta: Okay, what the fuck? Invisible midgets come put their fingers all over my glasses when I take them off. They were not this dirty when I put them down four hours ago.

eta2: I KNEW I already owned a copy of Catullus! And this one is in perfect condition, too. ALSO FOUND: big-ass Utena poster \o/ and signed photo of Enter the Haggis \o/ pretty sweet.

I'm not the one that's crazy?

Kashi trail mix bars are awesome. Kashi cold cereal is great. Kashi whole grain oatmeal? Reminiscent of baby puke.

Next time, I will just make plain old oatmeal and dress it up, like usual. Maple syrup and raisins and cinnamon makes for morning win.

Not so much the win: no sleep. Rolling around and around like a ball in a bingo tosser. Pretty much wasted what could have been a semi-awesome full moon night.

My mantra: "Tonight I will be in a real bookstore. Tonight I will be in a real book store, with more square footage than my house. Tonight I will be in a real bookstore while my mom is at Build-a-Bear, and I will be able to shove my face in something I haven't been able to find, and it will be good."

The promise of books makes everything better, except my oily skin, goddamn these pills have side effects. I'm glad I only have them for three more days... and I am mostly itch-free. So good.

Looking through that tote I found in the garage, in notebooks and books and plushies, there was a test essay book that I got 67 points (out of 100, I think) on. The teacher wrote inside, "your intelligence comes across, but so does how completely not engaged with the subject you are. Wasted potential is a moral crime."

Well, I'm a fucking moral felon, aren't I? Thanks JW, you can still make me feel inadequate years after I had your class. Thumbs up.
