I'm still awake, therefore I write.

Proof that it must be true:
[Negative, negative, positive! See the 21 day challenge is doing me a little good already!]
Honestly, the more I look at this picture(in all it's loveliness), the more I realize it really doesn't even do the situation justice. I look way worse than this picture depicts, for real. The shade of purple under my eyes, would look way more appropriate on top of my eyes.
Seriously though... I couldn't care less about the new shade of purple that's claimed it's spot under my peepers, I just want some decent sleep. It's been over 2 weeks since I fell asleep at a decent hour and stayed asleep all night.
It's getting old.

An open letter to sleep:
Dearest, Sweetest, Gorgeous Sleep,
I miss you. Don't you miss me?
Please come back soon. My life is just not the same without you.
I realize there was a time in my life when I neglected you and got along just fine...
but you see, I'm older and wiser and needier now and
I. Just. Miss. You.

Come back to me,
