Lately I have been finding it hard to sleep, not the actual sleeping part as such, but more the process of falling asleep. I'm not quite sure what it is, but when I am lying in bed and everything is dark and quiet, I just can not stop my brain from thinking- to the point where hours have passed and my mind has been buzzing with thoughts the entire time.
I've decided that it is quite possible that this sudden intolerance to finding easy sleep is probably due to my birthday being only a few weeks away. Long gone are the days where birthdays simply meant planning a party and inviting as many people as possible so as to increase the gift count. Now I generally find myself in a state of panic at how quickly the years seem to be passing and how easily I keep putting plans on hold- like university for example.
Well not any more my good folk, I think twenty-four is a darn good age to get started on changing some things, to be headed in a new direction. And this I am going to make happen!
