I know I’m going to get home and not be able to sleep tonight, I can just tell. Probably because I slept most of the day, but I was tired and there was nothing I had to do. Plus I was up to 11pm last night at a comedy show with some of the new facilitators of the 20 somethings group. Normally, I’m in bed between 6-8pm. I’ve gotten all my homework done and I’m not sleepy, I have some additional homework that is coming up due on a test date that I could work on, but who wants to do that. In the next few weeks, I have midterms and because I’ve been so sleepy I am considering altering some of my medication to try to keep me more alert and less sleepy. I’m thinking about trying it out this week, so if it sends me into a manic mood or something crazy I’d have time to recover by midterms. I was talking to my sister last night about parenting and how we grew up and it always surprises me because it seems like everyone has implied that I should just minimize everything that happened, that “it wasn’t that bad,” that other people have it much worse. etc. And when I talk to my sister she is never like that, she is super realistic about my parents were terrible parents without getting too angry, emotional, or anything about it. It’s strange. But I like talking to her, because it makes it seem real and impacting.
