Insomnia is a great thing, isn’t it? No. No it isn’t. As I mentioned in my last post, I spend a lot of time awake during the night hours. I suppose you could call me a night owl. I would say I’m sleep challenged. Always wanting to sleep when I can’t, and wide awake without sleep in sight when I’m able to. I suppose it can be a good thing at times; I’ve been incredibly productive, and have gotten a lot of work and projects completed when I should have been sleeping. At other times, I would much rather be sleeping instead of watching countless re-runs and infomercials at 4 o’clock in the morning. Like last night, for instance. I was a little frustrated, but at least I was semi-productive. I completed crafting my mom’s Mother’s Day present, and just in time for this week’s theme, took some pictures.
Though this isn’t using my camera to its full potential, as I was so excited to do, at least I was able to get some shots of “nighttime”, and I had fun playing in Lightroom giving some of my images that dreamy, hazy quality, which will match how I will feel the rest of the day. It may not depict your typical night, but it is for me…sometimes…unfortunetly. What always surprises me is the amount of noise I hear my neighbors making at all hours of the night. I suppose it’s good to know that I’m not the only one (I mean, misery does like company, right?), but what the heck are they doing? People stomping around upstairs, doors opening and slamming shut, loud talkers in the hallway. I’ll just have to assume that my neighbors all have far more active social nightlifes than I do! Then again, they all also appear to be early to rise. Like this morning…it’s 9 o’clock and someone is doing some type of construction? Maybe they’re all vampires, or whatever other mythical non-sleep-needing person. I digress….
So here you have it. All the things I peek at while I desperately try to fall asleep, things that go bump in the night in my apartment, and the dreadful realization that the sun is coming up before I’ve even gotten a wink of sleep!
