    That phrase makes me want to throttle someone.

    It's the feelings. But me thinking about the feelings - does that make sense? I have no idea what makes sense anymore.

    it is getting better, but my mind just begins to daydream about different things or things that I really want to do. Sometimes you wish you could
    wake up in the morning and have the current reality turn out to be the
    dream. but I guess be careful what you wish for since wanting things just
    makes them more important.
    you have all the power you need if you dare to look
    for it.

    My biological clock is screwed up.
    On weekdays, I just manage to get up at 7AM and (fall) sleep usually at around 12:30AM. On weekends... well... 2-3AM, and I sleep til 12PM.
    I'm practically a quasi-insomniac. I've had phases where I couldn't sleep until 7-8AM in the morning, and the only way I could fall asleep was to watch the early morning news on the couch.

    Pretty much everything that is said so far.


    Sometimes I just end up lying in bed for a whole night.

    No, never. I sleep in 2 minutes usually. But I also do a lot of movement during the day, usually at least 15 hours of sport weekly.

    I sleep enviably well except when stressed out. When I feel I'm not on top of things work-wise, or when there's turmoil in my personal life, I can toss and turn for hours. Attentive management of my caffeine intake as well as physical exhaustion helps me during these times. The last time I was majorly stressed out (approaching a thesis deadline after having ended a 7 year relationship), I either worked out at the gym or took a 8 km walk every single day, and that sufficed to let me sleep close to normally. I feel very fortunate on this score.

    I use to have a lot of problems, more with falling asleep than staying asleep. I find that regular exercise helped more than anything as well as a fairly early bedtime, other lifestyle changes and the removal of specific stresses. I had to play with it awhile but I sleep more often than not now.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Sometimes. Often enough, I just can't get my brain to shut up.

    All the while I get more and more tired, yet it's like having a crow squawking in my ear.

    One of my best friends is an INTP, and even on school nights, he's up past midnight, on his computer. And when he goes to bed, it takes him a while. It doesn't take a lot of rest for him to function, though.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    That's how it is for me.
