Late Night Mind Work
Sometimes too many thoughts interfere with my sleep, take last night for example I ended up going to sleep around 3 am and waking around 730 am ish all because my mind was over active.
There wasn’t really anything deep occurring, just the regular run of the mill things like
“Why do pillows feel the best when you HAVE to wake up for something?”
“Why is a yummy egg really a fetus?”
“How can I steal my roommates clothing without her noticing”
“How come hearsay law has so many exceptions?”
“Why can’t broccoli smell as good as muffins when they are being baked?”
“Why do we call a shirt a shirt?”
"Will I always hate alarm clocks?"
Stupid things keeping me up at stupid hours!
Today I went out with my Mentor Jodi for some coffee/chat time, it was good
She asked me questions
She gave me things to think about *
I am thinking about them now
Now at least it is not so stupid thoughts keeping my up at stupid hours which unfortunately have to happen the night before my 4 45 am shift!
*Ok so among the things she gave me to think about; faith, love, dad, future, grace and school my mind has these lyrics playing on repeat
“You're so cute when you're slurring your speech,
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave”
Death Cab for Cutie
I don’t know why it has to be at this point in the song that my mind starts working and remembering, but it is and I like it….
