It's currently 7am. I've been awake since 5am. It's just been one of those nights where my brain won't shut down no matter how much I try. I look at the clock and it says 1am and I say to myself
"Ok, if you fall asleep right now you'll still get 7 hours of sleep."
"Ok, if you fall asleep right now, you'll still get 5 hours of sleep."
"If you fall asleep now you'll still get 3 hours of sleep....Ok, I give up."
So I read a little bit, I wrote down some things I was thinking and now I'm here. My brain wouldn't shut down because I've been very stressed out about a few things in my life. For some reason, instead of coming up with solutions to these problems (which I've pretty much done, it's just a matter of putting them into action) and moving on, my brain feels it necessary to go over the problems, and then over the solutions approximately 7 billion times. I often times have arguments with my brain.
"Ok, Brain! I get it, ok? Yes, I know that I need to go to this place tomorrow! Haven't I said I would every time we've gone over this for the past 3 hours?"
But alas, my brain doesn't listen. But I'm hoping that writing out a little about how my crazy brain works will help me move on and have a (somewhat) stress-free day. Hopefully, I'm not the only one who has to deal with a Scumbag Brain like this.
