Another sleepless night

Posted on Updated on

Well, once again, I can’t get to sleep, it’s half three in the morning, and I have been trying to get to sleep for the last 3 hours.  Every time I try and sleep, my mind just seems to be in overdrive, so amny thoughts going through my head.  and every time I nearly doze off, my body just sends a funny jolt from head to toe telling me to wake up, so I have finally decided to get out of bed and put on the TV.

It’s amazing what rubbish is on at this time of the morning.  About 50% of the channels are playing live casinos,  whatImage does that say for the British viewer, there must be far more gamblers around me than I thought.  I sat there for a bit and watched one of the shows, they don’t even try to make it interesting.  It was just an image of a roulette wheel going round with an occasional voice over muttering a few words, then back to the spinning wheel.  After the joy of watching that I started flicking through a few more channels, and all I found were poorly made movies and old quiz shows.

So, now I have turned over to the Karrang music channel, to watch the massive rock anthems show, which is allot better viewing, but still not captivating enough for me, which is why I decided to start typing away, just something to do, until tiredness takes over, which still doesn’t seem like it is coming any time soon.

On a slightly better note, only one day left of work this week.  I get another Saturday off, which is great, that makes two in a row, but on the other hand, after this week, I have three Saturday’s on the trot, so a few weeks of six days, but it’s a bit of overtime pay for me, which I’m going to need because I’m of on holiday again in the middle of June, and I really need to start saving up for America, in October, if I manage to save the money, and find a decent valued place to stay.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling from me, I think I may cook my dinner for tomorrow night at work so I don’t have to do it in the morning in the zombie like state I’ll be in by then if I don’t get to sleep soon.

Speak soon

As I’m sat here, in my bed, still wide awake, I realize I should of been born in America.  By the time I usually fall asleep It will be about 4


AM here in the UK.  If I was in the US it would be closer to 9-10 PM which would be a fare better time of day to fall asleep.

It doesn’t help that I’m a caffeine addict, I get through multiple cups of coffee, and bottles of Pepsi Max every day.  I’ve tried sleeping pills, herbal teas, reading, but none of them seem to work.  But at least this gives me chance to draft a few Blogs and do some sketching.The problem is, I have is having a mind that wont turn off.  Whether I’m thinking about work, life, my neighbours making noise, or I’m stressed, there is always something keeping me awake.  But the one thing that really bugs me for keeping me awake is when I can’t stop thinking about Imagenot going to sleep.

So as I sit here, bored and alone I think to myself, I should of been like Sting and become another English Man in New York.
